State Prop 207. “The Smart and Safe Act”  Legalize Marijuana

-- VOTE YES -- If you want pot more available and less criminalized than it already is, plus retail sales stores.

-- VOTE NO -- If you want to leave things as they are with medical marijuana dispensaries widely available.

-- AND -- A “yes” vote also introduces 19 pages of new state bureaucracy, regulations, taxation, crimes, licensing, permanent government and private sector jobs, a new billion-dollar industry, speech regulations, tracking, penalties, fines and fees, and competition for the underground marijuana industry run by foreign and domestic drug cartels.

The Real Threat to Your Guns Is Not Just Rust and Politicians

The biggest threat to your fundamental right – your right to keep and bear arms – may not be what you’ve always feared. It may not be new laws. The risk may not even be from the two main political parties, though they both need constant watching, as Thomas Jefferson and the Founding Fathers warned.

No, the threat may be coming from something we were keenly alerted to back in the 1950s and 1960s, which we’ve grown inured to, bored with, discarded onto history’s trash heap. We may have forgotten it as a guns-and-ammo threat, but it’s still there. As alive as ever, active as ever, working its nefarious magic, seeking to take every gun you own, every round of ammunition you possess, either by direct force or through subversive covert action. That enemy is our old friendly villain, Marxism and communism, now in control of fully one third of the world’s population and making inroads here. Mass media, infected with that scourge, is not alerting us. They hide it, disguise it, aiding and abetting a mortal enemy of our Republic.

Thomas Jefferson warned, “Be eternally vigilant” to preserve freedom. He could never have imagined an enemy like Karl Marx. The rioting, looting, arson and upheaval we have witnessed on our televisions every night, is being run by dedicated Marxists with announced plans, signage, upraised fists. They make no secret of it. Class warfare. Call it “racism” if you want, but that’s not it, we are as free from racism as any nation you can name, which is why American immigration is basically a one-way street – inbound. No one is breaking into Cuba, China, Africa or lining roadways escaping here. These nightly mobs have communist influences and international provocateurs at their heart. Leaving you armed to resist is not their plan.
