    You have your facts wrong. It was made illegal slowly by requiring only allowed licensed people to sell the product because people only pursing the evil maximum would put the stuff into everything.

    The government could have easily stopped with the establishment of the FDA and the only people who would have used it were those who wanted to by choice, not trickery.

    How it became illegal does change that it became illegal, and for good reasons, reasons which Loosertarians ignore.

    It wasn't a good reason to make it illegal, it was a good reason to ensure that those drugs weren't put into everything.

    You don't trust people to make good decisions. You approve of big government.

    The "choice" argument doesn't work for hard drugs like it works for abortion, because you can't frame any demographic as a poor downtrodden minority who's lives would be oh so much improved if only they could do a line.

    If the merits of the 'choice' argument were valid, rendering the 'choice' argument true, then Pine Ridge reservation would be the nation's capitol.

    Like I said, you don't trust people to make good decision and therefore support big government

    I don't trust Loosertarians or Liberals to make good decisions, no. They each have a long record of failed and/or harmful policies. They have demonstrated their ineptitude, and show no sign of improvement. They are to be defeated wherever encountered, suppressed into near-extinction, keeping only a few around as a warning to the rest of the world of the immediate personal danger they represent.

    Jerry is another practitioner of character assassination.
    Isn't worth the time to keep following up.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I don't blame them for having Paul on a lot. At least he's running.
