I mean come on really? Weed? Are you really using that weed argument to indicate the U.S. government is failing to help its citizens?


The reason why the government illegalized weed is so that we can't get natural medicine that has no harmful side effects that can actually cure us of many diseases. Did you know that?

Weed is the cure for cancer and the government doesn't want us to have it.

LOL! Really? What makes you so sure that it was deemed illegal so people can't get natural medicine?

It's called research, man.

Cannabis is used for medical treatments. So if the government really want Cannabis out of the picture, then it would have not been used for medical treatments.


The "federal" government wants it out of the picture so that Big Pharma which is run by the federal government can pump YOU with toxic pharmaceuticals. Most "state" governments wants it legal. Have seen you the trend lately of many states going towards legalization of marijuana? There are good reasons why that is happening and one reason is that people are waking up to the idea that Fed is a totalitarian regime that want to control every aspect of your life; from birth to death.





Again.... LOL!

Pharmaceutical companies are in a race to get patents on the derivatives from Cannabis as one of their products.



Wow. Just no. Yeah, they want to do that so that they can charge you a shit load. Where do you get your information? CNN? FOX News and other mainstream outlets that are filled with lies, and misinformation? Mainstream media is State run media. We are no different than the Chinese.

Here is some real news:

Well the Major Judea-Christian ones come to mind. Christianity seems to be growing up a bit but there are still people in this world who'd be happy to turn their countries into a christian version of Iran. Islam too, especially from it's loudest proponents and in countries where it was born. Name your Cult: Jones, Koresh, Moon, etc. all seem to pursue their agenda to the detriment of their followers. In general: As soon as Faith get's 'Organised' into Religion. The potential for abuse by human agents increases dramatically and suddenly everyone is drinking the koolaid or being killed for trying to make others aware of the flaws in the emperor's sartorial choices.



Well, geez...those are like you said, cults, totally different than what is thought of when one mentions organized religion. Not even close to the major Judea-Christian religions.

Okay then Christianity: The Albigensian Crusade, The Thirty Years War, The Inquisition.

Islam: Today's Headlines.

As for dissent. It can be anything that doesn't toe the party. Like a girl asking why she can't go to school. Such questions apparently warrant the holy appointment of assassins.

jeez i could rant forever about the government and not just america's but any with any type of power, i mean everything is set up, false, or planned.. considering how its all run by the same people the Illuminati or anyone with a substantial amount of money... all that's needed to be known is to not trust what any major role of any government says cause usually its just ment to fuck with us or wrap around the big issue at hand. and of course there not helping anybody considering how much debt this country is in would you help a hobo if you owed a loan shark 10,000 dollars? for example. Anyways everywhere you go it'll be the same other then the huge debt here and there, i advise just minding ur own business and avoiding anything government involved.

Let's take the part I put in bold, and run with that idea for a moment.

Sure, see how far you get by avoiding roads paid for and maintained by taxes, or get your goods delivered to you without the use of those roads. Make sure not to call the police or fire departments in an emergency. For that matter, get off the internet right now, because it's due in part to the government that you not only have the internet, but that it isn't heavily blocked and censored, like it is in a number of other countries. Oh, and the fact that you can even speak out against the government without fear of being shot on sight, is due to the freedoms the government provides. It's not a perfect system, and it doesn't always do right by its citizens, but there are people who try to do just that every day.

Just because they can't always provide for everyone, does not also equal an inability to provide. If you hate it so much, try a pure libertarian society...such as Somalia.

I have to ask are the people arguing to legalize weed forgetting the whole being stoned part? And the complete and total idiocy that comes as a result? And the stink!! my god it's awful, you either get the stank of peat moss or this rancid dirty rear end stench. As for the government, the politicians have become to entrenched in their ideals and the status quo. Of course many citizens fail to realize that the only purpose for a government is to pass laws to tell people how the should live and act (within reason). It makes no money of its own, it produces no goods, and in the truest sense offers no services. If people want to complain about how the government is acting or the laws that are being passed they really should read up on what is being voted on. As citizens we can request a copy of anything that is being voted on in congress (it may be different now so don't quote me on that). It just requires awareness and the ability to read on our part to affect any changed.

I think I've started rambling sorry if the post seems a bit disjointed.

The U.S. government's purpose is not to tell people how they should live and act. The U.S. federal government is a limited government with enumerated powers and whose purposes is

...to establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity...

I'm not American but it seems the general population like complaining about their government with no real education on how it works or why things happen.

The Government's job is to regulate it's citizens. The politician's job is to represent the needs and ideals of the people.

However...

The Government regulates your freedoms. The politicians work for big business.

It's still a better place to live than most.
