Southern Avenger: The war on drugs is a war on common sense
Jack Hunter, aka The Southern Avenger, my favourite video commentator, has been busy lately. I posted his commentary on the direction the GOP should go in (namely, whether they should pick Bobby Jindal for leader, or Mark Sanford) yesterday.
Today, I'm posting his recent explanation of why the war on drugs is an absolutely waste of time, waste of money, and waste of dignity, and freedom. I agree with Hunter on all of those things. The war on drugs is quite possibly the most devastating and, frankly, stupid, bundle of government policies in the U.S. (and Canada).
Western Standard columnist and libertarian publisher Marc Emery is in the middle of a three-part series of columns entitled "Creeping Jackboots" (part one, part two) on the effects of drug prohibition on our liberties, our safety, and our wallets. That's worth checking out as well.
Here's the video:

PMJ As much as its probably not a bad idea to keep this sort of activity in the lime light...
I have to wonder does it do the Libertarians much good? Even if you're not directly attributing this article to Libertarian doctrine, others do and it becomes (in my mind) what everyone identifies us with. There are so many more aspects of Liberty that people just don't get.
