Who Is Arming the Mexican Drug Cartels?
by Michael Gaddy

*** begin quote ***

Wednesday, on MSNBC, in an interview by Andrea Mitchell, New York Congressional Representative, Nita Lowey stated 97% of the guns in the hands of the Mexican drug cartels originated in the US. Representative Lowey, in her support for a new Assault Weapons Ban, alleges these firearms are coming from the American gun owner. She is correct in her assertion many of the firearms being used by the cartels are coming from Americans. They are, but, from the American taxpayer, not the American gun owner!

The fact is: the Mexican authorities have refused to release the serial numbers of weapons confiscated from drug cartel members. Releasing the serial numbers would implicate the corrupt governments of the US and Mexico and their involvement in arming the drug cartels.

Considering the above, it is my belief the Mexican drug cartels are procuring a large percentage of weapons from the world’s largest supplier of these weapons: the United States government!

Certainly sounds like it.

We could eliminate this non-sense by ending the “drug war” in the US.

Imagine a country where what you put in your body was your personal business.

End welfare and then there’s no illegal immigrants.

End the drug war and let WalMart become the nation’s “drug dealer”.

Bet they do a far better job of cleaning up the problem.

Bud and Miller route salesmen don’t shoot it out.

No more drug overdose deaths from drugs cut with rat poison or not cut at all.

RANT: Obama flub or secret message?

But the traditional Miss Manners book of etiquette advises: “One does not bow or curtsy to a foreign monarch because the gesture symbolizes recognition of her power over her subjects.”

Maybe he’s just acknowledging that the Saudi’s and OPEC have “owned” the USA for a long time.

If I was Prez, we’d have atomic reactors on the express track to eliminating our dependence on foreign oil.

But, that’s not going to happen any time soon.

My Prez agenda:

  1. Convert back to gold standard. REpeal all legal tender laws. Peg the dollar to some amount of gold.
  2. End the drug war. Pardon all non-violent drug offenders.
  3. End the corporate income tax, death tax, and graduated income tax. Figure out how to convert from an income tax to a sales tax at a low rate.
  4. Privatize education! Shut down the Education Department.
  5. Privatize farming. Shut down the Ag Department. Eliminate all price controls.  

Pretty busy first day. Have to think about what I’d do on Day#2!

“Society in every state is a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.”

-Tom Paine

*** and ***

Big Government must close its doors forever — and leave nothing but small government, limited to defending our lives, liberties, and property. And the prosperity produced by a thriving, booming private enterprise system, in a swiftly-growing private sector.

*** end quote ***

As a country, we have a lot of “clutter” in the gooferment. Time to clean it out. Legitimate government has only one legitimate function to protect our rights from foreign and domestic aggression.
