The president can only SIGN bills into law.

He can't create law.

I see this as the "Obama-fication" of Sanders.


So often we try to make quick and witty comments when typing to the internet, often if one would take a little extra time and text others might know what point was being made.

ie Your post was a waste of space!

What part of my post is incorrect?

This is pandering to a base.

Bernie can't create laws.

Or do you want to do away with congress.

Depending upon what sort of mandate the President has, he can get many things passed by a Congress, at least temporarily, cowed by that mandate.

But, yeah, Congress only can put forward the bills. But to say he/she doesn't have a profound amount of influence would be wrong.

It's up to us, and I know I've said this many, many, many times, to help where we can.

A majority in the House and senate of GOP, and you think they'll put forward a bill to President Sanders on pot legalization?

That's about as likely as Pelosi writing an anti-abortion bill.


That's a very valid point.

It's sad that the GOP doesn't believe in freedom.


Well, maybe with Bernies magic wand, killing all people who believe differently than you can be made legal.

Many citizens of this country want to do away with ALL of those currently sitting on Congress. That's been the case for at least 20 years.

Did I miss a memo?

Since when did congress listen to the people they supposedly represent?

At least with Bernie, what you see is what you get.

He may be a "socialist democrat" -- but at least he's upfront about it and willing to work with others. He also has a consistent track record and not one of flip-flopping.

You have to respect that, even if you disagree with this ideals.

Why would I want to kill people that believe differently, and how is that relevant to my comment about the GOP not liking freedom?

Before too many get their panties in a wad, I'm for the legalization.

So don't start peeing all over the thread about me being an evil conservative.

I'm just providing a dose of reality.

I'm harshing your buzz kids.

Sorry

From what I've heard from Bernie all of those issues are on his mind and he desperately wants to tackle. The over crowding of prisons isn't a state problem, it's a federal problem because it's the federal mandatory minimums that each state must follow. These ridiculous mandatory minimums all began in the 80s to fight the so called war on drugs. That's why our prisons are overcrowded. The good news is right now politicians are finally looking at doing something about these BS mandatory minimum laws but legalizing marihuana will definitely help curb the problem of over crowded prisons. In fact, legalizing all drugs will stop it in its tracks. Let's take a lesson from Portugal.

If you're going to respond with hyperbole, so will I.

How many do you want dead, by the way?

Saying things like Bernie waving a wand so we can kill those we disagree with is not a "does of reality".

It's a statement out of touch with reality.

But it's already happening and "evil conservatives" are already working on it and lots of the conservative voting base (as evidenced herein by you and MBTM for local hand-raisers) is already cool with it.

And that, my dear beez, is a GOOD THING.

And saying the GOP hates freedom is what?

Insight?

Bullspit.

Dish it out and expect the same.

Saying the GOP does not stand for freedom is not hyperbole. It's the truth.

It's a sad truth, but true just the same.

Wasn't it the GOP that fought against gay marriage? Isn't it the GOP that demonized and stands against legalization?

What part of their party platform is based on the principle of freedom?
