5 Fascist Cabals Working To Wage Drug War Forever

The fact is that whether you're a Neo-Con, Pseudo-Con, Liberal, Socialist, Communist or any other label you identify with, you live under a heterogeneous system of tyranny.

The thugs who own this place don't care what you call yourself.

They let you believe that you have choices. Democrat, Republican..etc. It doesn't matter.

That's the key to keeping you permanently anesthetized.

But, the fact is, you have just enough choices to keep the Fascist Monolith out of conspicuous sight.

It's a devious ploy.

They know that, when it comes down to it, Americans are feckless puzzies.

Americans will never resist or transcend being shackled to the Government Machine.

The average serf is terrified that if he steps out of line, the levers which allow a few crumbs to trickle down to him can be shut down at any moment.

And the Phony War On Drugs is a main apparatus by which the Operators of The Fascist Monolith behind the US Federal Government keep their boots on your neck.

Whether you make the sovereign personal choice to indulge in drugs or not, in this country, The Drug War serves a larger purpose.

It serves to remind us and demonstrate that there really is NO Freedom.

There really is NO Constitution.

And there really is NO alternative to The Police State.

This is why The Drug War is so important to these monsters.

It sends the RIGHT message: Get out of line and you'll become a political prisoner too.

War On Drugs:

War on Peaceful Americans Who Voluntarily Choose To Use Intoxicants Not Currently Approved of by the Government, Who Will Put Users in Cages if Caught, and have no interest in declaring a "cease fire."



The Top Five Special Interest Groups Lobbying To Keep Marijuana Illegal


http://www.republicreport.org/2012/m...lobby-illegal/

Last year, over 850,000 people in America were arrested for marijuana-related crimes. Despite public opinion, the medical community, and human rights experts all moving in favor of relaxing marijuana prohibition laws, little has changed in terms of policy.

There have been many great books and articles detailing the history of the drug war. Part of America’s fixation with keeping the leafy green plant illegal is rooted in cultural and political clashes from the past.

However, we at Republic Report think it’s worth showing that there are entrenched interest groups that are spending large sums of money to keep our broken drug laws on the books:

1.) Police Unions: Police departments across the country have become dependent on federal drug war grants to finance their budget. In March, we published a story revealing that a police union lobbyist in California coordinated the effort to defeat Prop 19, a ballot measure in 2010 to legalize marijuana, while helping his police department clients collect tens of millions in federal marijuana-eradication grants. And it’s not just in California. Federal lobbying disclosures show that other police union lobbyists have pushed for stiffer penalties for marijuana-related crimes nationwide.

2.) Private Prisons Corporations: Private prison corporations make millions by incarcerating people who have been imprisoned for drug crimes, including marijuana. As Republic Report’s Matt Stoller noted last year, Corrections Corporation of America, one of the largest for-profit prison companies, revealed in a regulatory filing that continuing the drug war is part in parcel to their business strategy. Prison companies have spent millions bankrolling pro-drug war politicians and have used secretive front groups, like the American Legislative Exchange Council, to pass harsh sentencing requirements for drug crimes.

3.) Alcohol and Beer Companies: Fearing competition for the dollars Americans spend on leisure, alcohol and tobacco interests have lobbied to keep marijuana out of reach. For instance, the California Beer & Beverage Distributors contributed campaign contributions to a committee set up to prevent marijuana from being legalized and taxed.

4.) Pharmaceutical Corporations: Like the sin industries listed above, pharmaceutical interests would like to keep marijuana illegal so American don’t have the option of cheap medical alternatives to their products. Howard Wooldridge, a retired police officer who now lobbies the government to relax marijuana prohibition laws, told Republic Report that next to police unions, the “second biggest opponent on Capitol Hill is big PhRMA” because marijuana can replace “everything from Advil to Vicodin and other expensive pills.”

5.) Prison Guard Unions: Prison guard unions have a vested interest in keeping people behind bars just like for-profit prison companies. In 2008, the California Correctional Peace Officers Association spent a whopping $1 million to defeat a measure that would have “reduced sentences and parole times for nonviolent drug offenders while emphasizing drug treatment over prison.”
