American Ideals and Values
Revamping America’s marijuana laws is a Tea Party cause made in heaven. With conservatives trying to get ahead of liberal public opinion and election season, legal weed is an issue compatible with even the most extreme right-wing principles. We just need to get over one nagging detail.
I have two ideas to explain why progressives in high places rarely deliver what they promise. The cynic in me likes to think they are out for themselves. They back liberal causes because they believe they are the path to fame and fortune.
It is astounding how quickly the stupidity over “religious freedom” laws became a rallying cry for both sides of the LGBT divide.
