"I would love to see you run Newt, however I am concerned that the Republican base is moving toward Ron Paul. I'm not sure you will be able to garnish the support if Dr. Paul runs"

Newt Gingrich is Pure Evil (http://the-classic-liberal.com/newt-gingrich-pure-evil/)


Apparently, government check points, forced blood tests, drone spies, molestations, and extraction of your DNA still represents way too much freedom in America. So the tyrant Newt Gingrich, wants Singapore-style drug tests for each and every American too!

In Newt's world you see, everyone is a suspect, everyone is guilty, and everyone must submit to their Ruling Class Betters. And all this time you probably thought it was Osama bin Laden who hated your freedom. Suckers. Because it's schmucks like Newt Gingrich who, well, not only hates your freedom, but just plain hates you!

Though the right wingers will love it.

No. If you have a serious reason for thinking that based on some kind of evidence, I'd really like to see it.

They come out with polls from time to time asking voters of various political orientations what issues they think are most important. I don't ever recall seeing conservatives rate the war on drugs anywhere in the top ten. Do you?

erowe1, the war on substances and sick people marches on. Gary Johnson gets booed by conservatives every time he mentions legalizing marijuana and ending the WoD. I read RW blogs and a vast majority of them and their commenters support prohibition. Cato's Rittgers (http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/253048/obamacare-and-war-drugs-david-rittgers) recently scolded the social conservatives for using the commerce clause to wage it. They may concede it's a failure, but they don't want to end the federal WoD or legalize or even decriminalize. Please, show me some evidence that I'm wrong. It would make me very happy!

RileyE104, I'm so sorry! I went to his FB page, but I just can't bring myself to do it!

erowe1, the war on substances and sick people marches on.

But why? Is it because of conservatives? If so, I haven't noticed that. Like I said, if you have evidence for that, I'd like to see it. The biggest drug warriors I usually see are moderates. Newt's a perfect example. Rudy Giuliani and Romney are too. People far to the right of them, like Tom Tancredo, Pat Robertson, Pat Buchanan, George Will, William F. Buckley, and Ron and Rand Paul all have come out against it. Even Huckabee, who's at least conservative on social issues, if nothing else, is more ambivalent on the war on drugs than most of the more socially liberal Republicans are.

Any time I see someone on TV touting how great drug laws are, it's always some law-and-order type--a district attorney, or a cop, or something. It's never someone who's known as a conservative on the issues overall. Among pundits, the one I've heard most vocally in favor of the drug war is the centrist, Bill O'Reilly. You don't hear Limbaugh, Beck, or Hannitty getting too excited about it. If you go to the website of any avowedly conservative group and look through all the information, articles, blog posts, or whatever, and take note of what political issues they care about, I don't think you'll see the war on drugs in any of them.

That Rittgers article is directed against Republicans in Congress (and it's a stretch to call them conservative--but for the sake of argument I'll play along), not ordinary conservative people who care about issues more than campaign funds. If you were to look behind the curtain and see why those politicians (and it's not just Republicans) support the drug war, and whose approval they're trying to get, you'll find that it's not their issues-oriented constituents they're trying to curry favor with, it's other special interest groups who have particular vested interests in the drug war.

Is it possible that the reason you say conservatives love the war on drugs is because you've heard it repeated so many times that you take it for granted as conventional wisdom?

Edit: It's also worth pointing out that in the Supreme Court case Rittgers mentioned, the 5 justices who agreed most strongly with the pro-drug war position were the 5 most liberal ones (Stevens, Kennedy, Souter, Ginsberg, and Breyer). Renquist, O'Connor, and Thomas all dissented, and Scalia took a middle position. If all those conservatives out there who you think love the drug war so much responded to that by cheering on the liberal justices and chiding the conservative ones for betraying them, I missed it.

RileyE104, I'm so sorry! I went to his FB page, but I just can't bring myself to do it!

Your help would HELP! lol

Posted on Newt's 2012 wall:


I have a question: How do you expect our government's budget to be balanced and spending to be cut without reigning in the empire we have built overseas through the use of an interventionist foreign policy? I'm all for cutting entitlement and welfare spending, but it's time that we cut wasteful military and warfare spending ALSO. It distracts us from actually having a strong national defense.

erowe1, stop splitting hairs. And I gave you several examples. Of course actual sm. govt conservatives and libertarians oppose the WoD. Necons, socons and the majority of Republicans in CONgress (BIRM) support it.

RileyE104, I'll try! Great comment!

I understand why you say that about the majority of Republicans in Congress, for the reason I mentioned (which has nothing to do with any form of conservatism). But why do you add socons? For that matter, why even add neocons? As far as I can tell, support for the war on drugs is not a big part of the agenda of any non-office holding people or groups that are associated with either social conservatism or neoconservatism. Am I wrong about that?

And it seemed like when you mentioned that Newt's stance would be popular with right wingers, you meant conservative voters. Did you actually only mean moderate Republicans in Congress? If that's all you meant, then I agree.

Not as far as I can tell. It seems to me to be an issue that is not very important to conservatives, and is not really a partisan one.

Like I said, the reason it goes on is because of certain special interest groups that have nothing at all to do with conservatism. Most people from all parts of the political spectrum just go along with it because it's what they're used to.

But the conservatives who really care about it are the ones who are against the drug war.

I just don't think there are all that many "right wingers" out there who were drawn to become more supportive of Newt because of his drug warrior positions.

Or am I wrong? Again, if you have evidence that I am, I'd love to see it.

Lucille
03-04-2011, 03:39 PM
Though the right wingers Drug Warriors will love it.

Better?

And did you hear the 9/12 Tea Party booing Johnson when he said we need to legalize marijuana? Lots of Drug Warriors in the tea party evidently.

And no, I don't believe the mandatory drug testing of all Americans would draw Newt support, but I doubt they'd object.
