I'm currently putting my hopes in the legal weed market. It is making good strides and as the money pull builds soon the tide will be inevitable. Especially once the banks get tired of being squeezed out of their profits thanks to issues that the plant being illegal create between the legal dispensaries and their banking institutions. The way I see it, money can be used to our benefit too.
In a nutshell: Low-info liberal-minded rabbits exist to ensure the survivability and dominance of conservative-minded lions

The danger of anti-partisan politics is that its proponents always tends towards the center for purely dogmatic reasons, even when the scales are unbalanced. Those who poo-poo partisanship will be caught in a perpetual cycle of poo-pooing partisanship, because that is all that their politics amounts to.
WHAT IS THE LIBERTARIAN PARTY? The Libertarian Party (LP) is your representative in American politics. It is the only political organization which respects you as a unique and responsible individual. Our slogan is that we are “The Party of Principle”, because we stand firmly on our principles. Libertarians strongly oppose any government interference into their personal, family, and business decisions. Essentially, we believe all Americans should be free to live their lives and pursue their interests as they see fit as long as they do no harm to another. Founded in 1971, we run many hundred of candidates every election cycle. These candidates seek positions ranging from City Council to President of the United States. Each of these candidates helps to give liberty a voice. THE LIBERTARIAN OPTION Consider voting Libertarian or joining the Libertarian Party because… We seek to substantially reduce the size and intrusiveness of government and cut and eliminate taxes at every opportunity. We believe that peaceful, honest people should be able to offer their goods and services to willing consumers without inappropriate interference from government. We believe that peaceful, honest people should decide for themselves how to live their lives, without fear of criminal or civil penalties. We believe that government’s only responsibility, if any, should be protecting people from force and fraud.
Start working together and become a loud voice to represent Americans against Special interest instead of fighting with each other.
I laugh at all this political crap.
I am a libertarian and voted as such.
Maybe next go around we could get people on the right track and screw dems and republicans.

You are asking for rational thinking among people prone to irrational thought.
Politics is more about group think and mutual acceptance. It has nothing to do with thinking something through rationally. If it did, fear wouldn't work so well.

LOL Agreed, and that is why I have labeled the hard core republican and democrats political cheerleaders. Its become a team sport and a religion in a way.
However, its frustrating sometimes to watch these chickens running around with their heads cut off and chasing their tails year after year ,especially when it impacts our children life and their children life.
Its such a simple concept to not expect a person with conflict of interest to do right by you . The Majority does get and understand this concept , but for some reason completely overlooks it when it comes to politics?
Its ,tragic,mind boggling and fascinating all at the same time as to how people think focusing on healthcare and the typical issues will get resolved by the same people that created the issues to begin with , which are surrounded with conflict of interest and benefiting .
Its like they get a paper cut and are focused on fixing that cut with the their favorite bandaid brand , while asking the robber stabbing them in their backs to help them stop the paper cut bleeding. Its crazy.
I also find it interesting that most of the hard core Left or Right members around here have ignored this thread or have completely ignored my replies to them in other POST in regards if they would temporarily put their political ideals to the side and join forces.
