    It sounds good to me. Being a viet nam era vet makes it even better.

    I went to register, noticed that there was no register link, so I could not do it.

    I don't know much about computing but there was an error message on the bottom that said:

    atal error: Call to undefined function t() in /home/vawhigso/public_html/home/sites/all/modules/devel/performance/performance.module on line 167

    So Modern Whig Party supports cannabis legalization?

    Damn. I see the error you are talking about. I changed the configuration and that hopefully solved the problem. Let me know if you are still experiencing it.

    As far as Login and account creation goes, you should still be able to move forward. Under the User Login widget on the right hand side, below the Login button, is a link to Create new account. Click that and you will be taken through the registration process.

    Well, it is a little more complicated than that. Since the Modern Whig Party is a moderate party, we have moderate right and moderate left members. As a result, there are some policy platforms that have split support. Therefore, the Party does not have a policy platform at this time.

    I am the chairman of Virginia. I just started Dec 14th and I am the first chairman. We have very few members. I have my personal positions on issues. I am for drug legalization. However, I don't want to assert my positions as the party's positions, thereby excluding otherwise interested members. So, Virginia follows the national party's lead with no policy platform at this time.

    Now, my objective is to determine a policy platform. To do that, I want at least 100 voting members (I have a polling center capability in the website that does Instant Runoff Voting) and a list of policy questions and initial answers. As members vote IRV, they can add write-in answers which are then displayed as a legitimate answer for subsequent members voting. If the IRV to a particular question has a supermajority (of the 66% variety), then it becomes a policy position. If a question does not pass super-majority, then the top 2 or 3 answers will be listed with percentages as a split decision position.

    Hopefully, this policy will both elucidate agreed positions as well as display platform variety in the electorate. We aim to define ourselves yet not exclude moderates with varying positions. We will probably redo this voting at 1000 members and so on and evolve our own understanding of our positions.

    In the meantime, prior to the establishment of sufficient voters for the voting, I have a forum for policy discussions at the state and national levels at Virginia Whigs Forums - Powered by vBulletin.

    It's amazing how many people on this thread voted to legalize pot. I think the latest national poll I saw showed something along the lines of 50/50. It is time to let the states decide. If 50% of the population thinks it should be legal, that should correlate to marijuana being legal in approx. 25 states.

    Re: Should marijuana be legalized?

    The type of person who participates in discussions is not representative of the whole population. We have computers and we can express ourselves. Many people are as dumb as a box of rocks but that doesn't mean they don't have OPINIONS.

    Despite its negative image, marijuana is an intellectual drug. It expands the imagination and is popular with writers, artists and the creative. So, you'll find a disproportionate number of intellectuals advocating legalization.

    The majority of the anti-pot segment are drinkers who can't spell marijuana, let alone appreciate it. Typically, these people disapprove of anything THEY don't do and are quick to want those who disagree to be imprisoned.

    This looks bad with the US importing over a ton of illegal dope a day.
    What does the world think? I’m sure that they don’t want us driving their train.
