    Look at the war on drugs and what it has done to the black population...
    Very good points.

    I understand that culture and race aren't the same thing, but we're talking about black culture in the United States. Sure, there are foreign cultures that are blended in to the black American culture, just as there are foreign cultures blended into the white, Asian, etc American cultures. The economic issues in some black communities is probably at least part of the factor, but there are plenty of poor people of all races.

    Being poor doesn't cause a guy to pick up a gun and shoot someone from a different block of the neighborhood.

    Being black/white/whatever doesn't cause a guy to pick up a gun and shoot someone from a different block of the neighborhood.

    That's why I think it's a cultural thing. Money plays a part, but attitudes play a larger part. We can't always control our circumstances, but we always can control how we react to them.

    agree with what you say in part....
    here is a good article...http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig7/wicks3.html


    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    I don't think Obama would touch this issue for fear of losing votes. It's that touchy.

    I'd vote for anyone be wherever they're on the political spectrum if they'd actually do stuff regardless of what happens "politically" and is for betterment of society as a whole-to hell with votes/popularity, etc etc.

    Had me until the last paragraph, particularly:
    Eliminate the exceptions to freedom.

    As suspicious as I am of government, the void created by a lack of government would be filled by the most vile, malicious, heinous people imaginable. The drug dealers would not be chased out of the street, they would end up owning them.
