Sounded fine to me. He didn't call all Ron Paul supporters potheads, he simply said that one of the things that attracts the 30 and under crowd is ron pauls stance on legalizing marijuana.

He didn't say it in a demeaning way, and he certainly didn't use the word pothead.

You guys over reacting over every little thing do more harm than good.

The problem is that is the picture he is painting.

Phil is a great guy, super nice. He even had a communist on his show (who he completely disagrees with) and was still nice to them.

Essentially he is, either on purpose or unknowingly, spreading an idea that all RP supporters who are under 30 are voting because they like to smoke up. This needs to be corrected.

His audience is very conservative middle America, and that segment about the younger crowd supporting him because of pot was VERY bad PR for Ron, not to mention inaccurate. If we all send a gentle e-mail to Phil telling him he is wrong and why he is wrong, we have a chance to change his opinion and perhaps curb some of this negative spin.

I was listening to your radio program and noticed that you were talking about Ron Paul's Nashville event and I want to thank you for that coverage. However, I don't believe your statement about his appeal to the 30 and under crowd is correct. I am 17 (I'll be able to vote in the primaries) and I have communicated with a lot of the Ron Paul supporters throughout the past few months. We never talk about how great it will be when he would delegalizes federal drug laws, it's not an issue for us. Though I must admit, we have been talking about Romney's video where he turns his back on an MS patient who uses medical marijuana (you can watch the video here).

But overall, it's just not what makes him appealing. The young people (for the most part) don't support the war, so that's easy and attributes to his appeal as you said on the show. But we also like his views on strictly adhering to the constitution. We see the inefficiencies of centralized planning and bureaucratic government. I'm a child of "No Child Left Behind", and it's an absolute mess. We also like his ideas on taxes, we don't want to pay for taxes that pay for federalized institution like the Department of Education or undeclared wars like the one in Iraq. We want personal responsibility, which means financial responsibility. We don't trust the Social Security system and we want to opt out of it to invest in our own future.

But there is also a lot of appeal because he speaks to the people so well. He is a straight-shooter, doesn't back down, clearly states his positions on issues. He's been voting the same in Congress for 30 years and we like that, how many honest politicians are there now-a-days? A lot of friends who don't support anyone and don't follow politics give me the same answer when I ask them "Why don't you follow politics?". It's boring, they're liars, it won't change anything. When the young are exposed to Dr. Paul they do a total 180* and end up more politically active than their parents! They are untapped minds with unbiased opinions for the most part, so they know what they like. There isn't some past alliances to any party or person these young people need to adhere to.

So thanks for the coverage again, but I don't think the best way to analyze his support is to use generalizations.

We, the people, are the rightful masters of both congress and the courts - not to overthrow the constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert the constitution. - Abe Lincoln

"The War on Drugs is a price support system for terrorists and drug pushers. It turns ordinary, cheap plants like marijuana and poppies into fantastically lucrative black market products. Without the War on Drugs, the financial engine that fuels terrorist organizations would sputter to a halt.”
~Ron Crickenberger, Libertarian Party Political Director 2/4/02


That's enough reason to consider legalizing drugs a main issue. Of course, Ron Paul wouldn't legalize drugs--he would just end the federal war on drugs, and basically leave the rest to the states.

And besides, what's wrong with being a pothead?
Personally, I don't buy in to the propaganda, the stereotypes, or the misinformation.
Cannabis is very likely the greatest plant on earth.
Not only was it America's first billion-dollar crop, but it's also wonderful--sometimes lifesaving--medicine, and it could also be part of the solution to "global climate change/warming" since it is perhaps the best source of bio-fuel, has the potential to put an end to rampant deforestation, not to mention the fact that these green, luscious plants breathe in CO2 like "potheads" hit the pipe (;)).


But anyway, as far as the dude trying to smear Dr. Paul, he's obviously an ignorant prick.
Sometimes (and I'm not really talking about this thread as much as others) I think that we make too big of a deal over insults and negative comments from small, insignificant people, newspapers, radio shows, etc. You know?

And to be honest, I've heard a few potheads come up to me and go OMG HE WANTS TO DELEGALIZE DRUGS! WOOO! But they don't vote, they don't go to rallies, and they are in High School.

I think 18+ have more common sense than that, right? right!? :P

Ron Paul does not want to legalize drugs. can we please stop taking things out of context.
He stated that he wants to remove the federal government from interfering with laws concerning the states rights to allow medicinal marijuana.

Further more war on drugs and the illegalization of drugs only makes it easier and more profitable for drug pushers to make money.
Also it gives the incentive just as does allowing illegal aliens the right to heathcare.
Take the incentive away (get rid of the war on drugs) and the drug pushers would fade away a bit.
They will never go away completely. but i think it will take the price down and thus taking some incentive away.

As an example with war on drugs:your 15 year old son is getting ready for the bus to school, a man selling drugs approaches him (since drugs are expensive they are profitable so this is a likely scenario)
Example 2 without war on drugs: The same man that would have approached your son might be working a job or doing something more productive since their isn't an incentive to sell drugs (drugs are either not profitable enough or very cheap, Thus no incentive to sell them).

Maybe i'm missing something in my point here correct me if i'm wrong

However i don't see anything wrong with legalizing marijuana. it's much less dangerous than alcohol.
And in fact has many many positive uses that outweigh the intoxicating feature that most people use it for.

2 of them were actually registered republicans (they registered as a joke last election) and most of them say they will vote for him in the primaries. Seriously though a lot of people label potheads lethargic non-voting broke adolescents. At leased where i'm from though there are a lot of businessmen, intellectuals, and other wise upstanding citizens.

There are an estimated 10 million regular marijuana users in this country don't count them out as legitimate support. A large percentage of them view ending the drug war as an extremely important issue. Plus the old hippies are known for their grassroots type of support for things.

My letter to Phil:


Mr. Valentine first off I would like to thank you for giving Dr. Paul some time to speak on your show. I listened to the interview and felt you were quite fair to him. Given the reception he has been given at, of all places, the neo-con stronghold of Fox News and the like, it is refreshing to listen to a non-hostile interview.

I am writing this letter in regards to the comment that most 30 year-old and under supporters are passionate about Dr. Paul due to the possibility of legalizing Marijuana. I wish to inform you that I am 29.

Naturally I can't speak for all people but as a meet-up organizer for Ron Paul 2008 I get a chance to interact with a good variety of supporters and must say that this issue is never spoken of as a primary concern, never once. If it is mentioned, it is as a passing thought. To deny this as a spoke in the wheel would be foolish but to call it the hub would be even more foolish.

The question of "how is he getting this support" comes up quite often in articles, broadcasts and blogs. I am amused when I read the question as it is a very simple answer. Perhaps it is human nature to over-analyze and over-complicate what is otherwise a basic response; those that ask the question and receive an answer do not seem to come away satisfied.

One part of the answer is Liberty.

Liberty speaks to the very soul of man. It's roots are deep within the primal being and reinforced by our proud American heritage. Freedom, my friend, is the most basic and most powerful motivating factor after love and survival. Kings, tyrants and madmen have tried for centuries to squelch the voice of freedom only to learn time and again that no hand is so great as to cup the mouth of lady liberty. They may succeed for a while to distract, divide and deceive the masses only to be undone by one courageous human shouting freedom at the top of their lungs.

I am not simply referring to the freedom of consumption but liberty in general from the freedom of speech to assembly to economics. Free speech zones, self written warrants, loss of privacy and a burgeoning police state have contributed to a mounting storm of malcontent citizens.

Another part of the answer that has lead to a lot of support is the abolition of the IRS and income tax as well as the end of the Federal Reserve Bank; the legalization of gold and silver as legal tender; being that the Constitution states that only gold and silver shall be legal tender. Inflation effects a massive portion of the voting block and we the people have had enough of this madness.

Illegal immigration, the war, and the Constitution are also motivating factors.

Yet another factor is the voting record that Dr. Paul has. His honesty and integrity is a refreshing change from the lesser of two evils.

Some have looked at the rEVOLution, or grassroots campaign, and laughed, insulted and dismissed it as nonsense. People of this sort are making a mistake by underestimating the strength of our numbers and of our conviction. They can go ahead and describe us as pot smoking hippies and by doing so they are making a strategic mistake.

"He who lacks foresight and underestimates his enemy will surely be captured by him." Sun Tzu, The Art of War.

Unless the topic was red pickup trucks, I really don't know what Fred has shown any inspiring expertise on. "Let's keep doing the things that work and stop doing the things that don't work."

Phil Valentine, a nationally syndicated radio show host, thinks that Ron Paul supporters are all pot heads.

Listen to his 2 minute statement about this:

http://gm-diesel.com/Phil_Valentine_on_Ron_Paul_in_Nashville.mp3


We should all e-mail and call him and let him know that he is wrong and why he is wrong.

I work at his station, and I am friends with him (he gave Ron a 15 minute interview last Thursday on my request). Phil Valentine is a nice guy, kind of good ole' boy, and even if he disagrees with you, he still wants to be your friend. SO DON'T RIP HIM APART.

But please contact him and let him know that HE IS WRONG! (listen to the short clip first so you can hear it for yourself)

phil@philvalentine.com
(and yes he checks his own e-mail)

Or call into his show
800-618-PHIL
(call between 2pm-6pm CST, the ealier the better the chances of getting on the air)






FYI - segment 1 and 2 of Phil's interview of RP last week:

Actually, he does in a way. He wants to decriminalize them at the federal level and leave it up to the states to decide. That's defacto legalization since most states would NOT have the funds to fight a war on (some) drugs if they weren't getting HUGE kickbacks from the federal government to do so.

10-09-2007, 10:57 AM
The last post is the most correct in this entire thread.

Ron wants to end the federal war on drugs, which is unconstitutional, counterproductive to its goals, and basically functions as a price support for murderous banana republics around the world.

Ron opposes the federal war on drugs because it is unconstitutional, wasteful, and unjust to the poor and minorities, not because he views the consumption of drugs as a right.

Ron believes the regulation of drugs not sold across state lines, without a constitutional amendment, is a power reserved to the states, contrary to Gonzales v. Raich (2005).

Ron would not support the notion that there exists a fundamental right to consume drugs in private, for the same reason he disavows the right to privacy that was constructed in Roe v. Wade. Therefore, there would be no grounds in his opinion for federal courts to overturn state drug laws.

I doubt Ron would support a drug prohibition amendment to the Constitution as a matter of practicality; he points out alcohol prohibition as a policy failure.

Ron promised last month to pardon nonviolent drug offenders, but I would assume it would be those convicted under federal law, not state law.

Ron sponsored bills in support of state medical marijuana laws and industrial hemp. I do believe he is aware of all of the benefits of the cannabis plant in terms of medical self-sufficiency, energy independence, and environmental preservation.

The discussion is far, far more complicated than just saying "he's a legalizer".

Phil,

I didn't hear the radio spot in question personally, but I read on the Ron Paul forums that you said something to the effect that most young Ron Paul supporters were pot heads. If that's what you believe, I think you're really missing the boat.

I am 45 years young, and I have voted in most elections that I could vote in since I came of voting age. I have NEVER been as excited before as I am now that Ron Paul is running for President. He is the only candidate who offers any hope for a departure from more of the same business-as-usual politics that have been running this country into the ground for decades.

The young people of this country finally have some hope of a better future.

You don't have to be a pot head to see that the War On Drugs ruins many innocent lives, subverts our freedoms and turns police into thieves with the asset forfeiture laws.

I request you reconsider, and do better homework before spouting off another insulting generalization.

Me

Not a pothead.
As a Farmer (farm owner) I have looked into hemp farming. From both the historical record in the US and watching what is happened in Canada. It looks like it would be a viable crop, if it were legalized.
There are also numerous related industries that would grow around it. It would be good for the whole area. We have high unemployment (20%) and NO industry.
I am watching this.

Yeah, I wish we all could too, but you have to admit, a guy who is rude and impolite to ALL RP supporters by generalizing and judging them on public radio deserves a little rudeness. Politics is a dirty game.I think we can disagree without being rude though.

I agree. I think there are better ways to go about winning hearts and minds, for sure.

I just spoke to Phil Valentine about this today. He said he got a bunch of very rude e-mails and wasn't very pleased about it.
