Congressman Newt Gingrich proposed legislation that would impose the death penalty for people caught carrying as little as 2 ounces of marijuana.
Newt Gingrich has had a pretty rough couple of weeks, and things just got worse today when most of his top staff resigned. I hate to hit a man when he is down (actually in this case I don’t mind too much, Newt is as slimy a politician as his name suggests), but last night I was reading Illegal Drugs: A Complete Guide (don’t worry mom, it is for school), when I came across this on page IX:


Congressman Newt Gingrich, the Speaker of the House, proposed legislation that would impose the death penalty for people caught carrying as little as 2 ounces of marijuana. (1996′s HR 4170). He excused his own past marijuana use by explaining that pot smoking ‘was a sign that we were alive and in graduate school in that era.’”

Now that takes a set, to propose the death penalty for something that you did in the past.

But like any nanny state politician, he is doing it for the children:



“it is because you have made the personal decision that you are prepared to get rich by destroying our children. I have made the decision that I love our children enough that we will kill you if you do this.”

He goes on to propose mass public executions to make a statement that we are hard on crime:


“The first time we execute 27 or 30 or 35 people at one time, and they go around Colombia and France and Thailand and Mexico, and they say, ‘Hi, would you like to carry some drugs into the U.S.?’ the price of carrying drugs will have gone up dramatically.”

Newt further justified his change in opinion with this statement that is so incoherent it is difficult to believe he was sober at the time:


When I smoked pot it was illegal but not immoral. Now it is illegal and immoral the law didn’t change, only the morality. That is why you get to go to jail and I don’t.

Nana Nana Bo Bo, Stick Your Head In Doo Doo.

When it comes to medical marijuana, he has also had a significant change of position over the years. In 1982 then congressman Gingrich wrote a letter to the editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association supporting medical marijuana stating in part:


This outdated federal prohibition is corrupting the intent of the state laws and depriving thousands of glaucoma and cancer patients of the medical care promised them by their state legislatures.

WTF!!!

SEC. 2. INCREASED PENALTIES FOR INTERNATIONAL DRUG TRAFFICKING.
Section 1010 of the Controlled Substances Import and Export Act (21 U.S.C. 960) is amended by adding at the end the following:

(e)(1) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the court shall sentence a person convicted of a violation of subsection (a), consisting of bringing into the United States a mixture or substance— which is described in subsection (b)(1); and (B) in an amount the Attorney General by rule has determined is equal to 100 usual dosage amounts of such mixture or substance; to imprisonment for life without possibility of release. If the defendant has violated this subsection on more than one occasion and the requirements of chapter 228 of title, United States Code, are satisfied, the court shall sentence the defendant to death.

With this prick leading the polls in Florida I have no choice but to vote for Romney in the primary.
I'd rather vote for Ron Paul, even if it is just throwing away my vote, but this fucking prick wants to kill pot smokers?
Fuck him.
You know I think wife cheaters should get the death penalty.

If you ask me it's time to start building gallows and oiling up the guillotines for these insane bastards. Bastille day, free every person imprisoned where due process of law was not followed and convictions were obtained unconstitutionally or without proving guilt beyond reasonable doubt, and replace them with the real criminals.

The government has become the enemy of the people.
They force deadly vaccines and all form of mind altering and destroying drugs including methamphetamine on children while in the same breath propose killing people who traffic in harmless drugs.
There is a reason why the governments are so hard on marijuana, and it has nothing to do with the harm it does to society but more with the harm it does to their perceived legitimacy in the minds of the people.

I remember back in the 70's we had the bastards on the run, the government feared the people. WTF happened? People live in fear of getting their doors kicked down and shot up in the middle of the night, it makes Hitler's germany look like a girl scout cookout.

When the people fear the government we have tyranny.
When the government fears the people we have freedom.
Which do you prefer??

Didn't realize you had death penatly in UK, its barbaric. And a sin, retaliation or vengeance. Its not ours to take. And most crimes are not crimes, and most politicans and bankers need a good spot of jail time for crimes against humanity, but most of the people they're holding need: freedom from banks and realtors, equality, happiness and a loving team work family that looks out for others, except for sociopaths who are extreme cases.
