[ASI] Drugs, Guns and Madness in the Ron Paul Revolution

Dear Friend of America's Survival, Inc.:

I have a very important report on my www.usasurvival.org website.

Drugs, Guns and Madness in the Ron Paul Revolution

It is about Ron Paul's strange drug-crazed supporters in New Hampshire, where the next Republican presidential primary will be held. These are people who believe in "guns and weed (marijuana)" as constituting the "road to freedom." Read my report and watch the hyper-linked videos. One of Ron Paul's official campaign operatives has been involved in what is called "PorcFest."  It is a national tragedy to see so many young people being drawn into these "counter-cultural" activities that are destructive and damaging to their lives and our society.

I did this report in part because I was contacted by a distraught mother whose lost her daughter to the Ron Paul movement after being exposed to dangerous drugs and being brainwashed. "I just wonder if the voters know what kind of political groups are backing Ron Paul's campaign," she told me.

Guns and Weed

Many years ago I participated with Rep. Paul in an anti-U.N. news conference. I appreciated his stand in a favor of a complete U.S. withdrawal from that corrupt body. I also appreciate his pro-life stand and participation in the annual March for Life against abortion in the nation's capital.

But I am troubled by his campaign's "outreach" to alienated youth, caught up in the use of illegal mind-altering drugs. Paul should denounce these activities, not embrace them.

This is an image from the "Guns and Weed" film shown at PorcFest:

It shows somebody with a gun in his pants doing a "rap" song in front of a big marijuana leaf. This is offensive and disgusting.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse recently reported, based on a national survey, that:

Daily Marijuana use increased among 8th, 10th, and 12th graders from 2009 to 2010. Among 12th graders it was at its highest point since the early 1980s at 6.1%. This year, perceived risk of regular marijuana use also declined among 10th and 12th graders suggesting future trends in use may continue upward.

As the following graph shows, marijuana use is now ahead of cigarette smoking on some measures.

Part of the reason is that we have a president who talked about smoking dope and even using cocaine and came into office promising to go easy on drug users. Another reason is the "medical marijuana" phenomenon that leads some to think the drug is not as bad as people think.

As I point out in my article about the Ron Paul supporters, the mixture of drugs and guns with an anti-government philosophy that borders on paranoia can have disastrous consequences.

One only has to recall that John Patrick Bedell, a 36-year-old marijuana addict, had used "medical marijuana" cards to get legal dope in California, before he drove to Washington, D.C. in March of 2010 to murder people at the Pentagon. Bedell, who injured two security guards before getting killed in the crossfire, was a libertarian who thought the government was out to get him. He was devoted to legal marijuana, believed in the 9/11 "inside job" theory, and accused the U.S. Government of murdering a Marine Corps colonel, James Sabow, in California in 1991.

The influence of marijuana also figured  in the sensational murder case of Colin Roger Cotting, a 16-year-old who raped his stepmother, beat her to death, and stuffed her in a freezer. Cotting said he was too stoned to remember what happened.

Ron Paul favors the legalization of drugs. He leads people to think this would somehow solve the illegal drug problem. But that's just not true. So-called "drug policy reform," as they call it, is a fancy way of saying that drugs should be legalized so that the government can regulate, tax, and distribute them. This would increase government involvement in the drug business. We would have a new government bureaucracy in charge of distributing heroin, cocaine, marijuana and so forth. Law enforcement would still be needed to address the problems of illegal diversions and black market operations, and to prevent the drugs from falling into the hands of children. The problem would get worse.

Do you want the U.S. Government approving the sale of such drugs as LSD, heroin, cocaine, and marijuana at the local drug store?

I do not favor or oppose candidates; I only provide information about them.

In that regard, let me provide some information I received from DeForest Rathbone, Chairman of the National Institute of Citizen Anti-drug Policy (NICAP). He says Newt Gingrich has a strong position against drug traffickers and drug use. He favors the death penalty for drug smugglers and opposes the "medical marijuana" scam, saying, "I think the California experience is that medical marijuana becomes a joke. It becomes marijuana for any use. You find local doctors who will prescribe it for anybody that walks in."

Gingrich is right. But the dopers at PorcFest in New Hampshire didn't even pretend they were smoking marijuana for medical reasons. They did it to get high, brandishing firearms and "slam dancing" as they did so. Will this stoned generation be tough enough to save America? I don't think so. I fear for the future when I watch the videos from PorcFest. Take a look yourself.

Drugs, Guns and Madness in the Ron Paul Revolution

Am I alone in raising concern about this? Don't we need to raise a morally-straight generation of youth with clear heads and a sense of purpose for themselves?
