If you don't like what we're doing, stay away.
If you don't like what we're saying, quit listening.
If you don't like what you see, quit looking.
If you have a VALID argument, state it.
If what we're doing is so wrong, then eventually it will get defeated and you and your ilk can sit back and gloat and say "I told you so".
[ But you and I both know that's not going to happen]
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Being a lover of freedom, when the revolution came in Germany, I looked to the universities to defend it, knowing that they had always boasted of their devotion to the cause of truth; but, no, the universities immediately were silenced.
Then I looked to the great editors of the newspapers whose flaming editorials in days gone by had proclaimed their love of freedom; but they, like the universities, were silenced in a few short weeks... Only the Church stood squarely across the path of Hitler's campaign for suppressing truth. I never had any special interest in the Church before, but now I feel a grea
t affection and admiration because the Church alone has had the courage and persistence to stand for intellectual truth and moral freedom. I am forced thus to confess that what I once despised I now praise unreservedly.
Quoted by Albert Einstein in Time magazine (23 December 1940) page 38

Ok...here is what I do not understand. How is this bill going to even put a dent into drug smuggler rings and organized drug wars? Illegal smugglers will continue to do what they do all the time regardless of laws. The real solution starts with a "L" and it would cut the border violence by cutting the profits of these violent gangs.
