                       why the drug war won't end 

 

 

SOCIETY IS A REFLECTION OF IT'S LEADERSHIP.  FDR BROUGHT US OUT OF DEPRESSION... PROHIBITION...  AND LED US TO VICTORY IN A WORLD WAR.... NIXON BROUGHT US INTO A HOPELESS WAR THAT NO ONE HAS YET FIGURED OUT HOW TO END... REAGAN, BUSH, CLINTON, BUSH... WHAT WE NEED IS ANOTHER ROOSEVELT!  

                                                          

 

 

The original purpose of the drug war was to stop the trafficking of illicit substance and project our citizens,  The objective was to get  Americans to consume only approved drugs.  But as the war wears on, we have to wonder what its purposes really are.  The war on drugs has now made it impossible for US citizens to get even approved medications.  It is outrageous to think that today we have become a paralyzed nation that chooses to discriminate.  The reason why our political leaders no longer mention the war on drugs is because enough has been said about it to bury the war 3 million times over.  The public doesn't want it; our healthcare industry doesn't want it; political experts don't want it.  http://www.nationalreview.com/12feb96/drug.html

So why are we still continuing to battle this war? 

The answer is buried deep in our political infrastructure.  Democracy's weakest point  is that it takes only a few people to develop enough power to ensure that they are represented.  Designed for the good of minorities, it defends the rights of those constituent groups.  The laws that drive the drug war are formidable to change.   For that reason, organizations like Drug Policy Alliance work to change one law at a time.   However, it's like chipping away at a rock that keeps growing.   As a result, we are sprouting new laws as fast as others are taken down.  So now only is the drug war failing, but the movement to end the drug war is failing as well.  There's only one solution that is going to end the war on drugs and that is the minds of many people changing at  the same time.  There are numerous ways this can be accomplished, but it would probably take a national calamity much larger than we've ever experienced.   Some of us believe that the weakening of the healthcare system in the US is dismal enough.  Apparently not.  Others have felt that the war on terrorism would have brought about change.  It didn't.  In fact, it has energized the war on drugs as has the war in Iraq.  

What does all this mean?   

When Ronald Reagan came into office, the drug war took a totally different turn.  Instead of inducing Americans to consume only approved drugs, the idea was to draw Americans away from using ANY drugs.   That strategy has failed to work because once the doctors were incarcerated and people no longer could get drugs, they turned to illicit drugs.  

Today, drug dealing has become one of the most lucrative industries, a courtesy of the war on drugs.   The era of the cartel may be over but drug money is making many very wealthy, particular racial minorities which have always been lured by the promise of the drug war, only now, the feeling is that what it will all come down to is a violent war between the drug mavens and the US government.  Local law enforcement have expressed various feelings about this, but in cities like Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Miami, Detroit and now New York, local law enforcement has resigned from the forthcoming war.  The US government would be foolish to engage such a war with its people because no one would ever win.  It is impossible for a nation to fight itself.  On the other hand, the US government really has no intention of such altercation.  It's already known this cannot be achieved.  One of the reasons for the war on drugs as it exists to camouflage  protection for the drug user community.  

But take a close look at the constituents that support the drug war.  One would guess that they are all well-meaning citizens of the US who want to protect society from drug abuse.  Think again!  These organizations that support the war on drugs doso for one very good reason:  The drug war is what keeps the drug dealers going strong.   They make money within the constraints of the government.  In a sense, the drug suppliers and dealers work for the government.  If they get out of control, the government hauls them in.  This is why our healthcare system now sends some patients of our clinics to drug dealers.   It's just a dirty way of doing business because now the consumer spends their money on illicit drugs rather than getting them from the pharmaceutical firms.  

 There are no words to say anymore.  We have failed and we keep failing and will keep on failing until the US is either taken down or falls under it's own weight of corruption.  Above all, we should not be promoting a political system around the world that doesn't work.  If US politicians were honest and all that great, they would be inventing a political system that does work.  As they mezmerize audiences with their words, one might wonder if they are running for public office or attempting to win a sixth grade political science essay.  The next thing we know, Mrs. Clinton will be doing the inaugural on how she spent her summer vacation. 

We don't need weak, maladjusted presidents.  We have had enough of that during the last half of the 20th century.  We don't need presidents who can't pronounce the word "AIDS" or haven't the foggiest clue about modern technology.  What we need is someone who fearlessly builds the highway to world peace not one that lays claim to inventing the Internet.  We need someone who is going to tackle all the issues, not just the ones they want.  The bottom line is that we need education so that our youth can live with this madness.  

The World Health Organization dubbed the US Healthcare system as number 37 in their rank of the world's best healthcare.  That was during the 1990s.  Today our healthcare has fallen back considerably more.    Well, Gee, when you can't get a prescription from your doctor, what do we expect... #1? 

    If we want to eliminate corruption, the drug war is the place to start.  Until then, citizens are just pawns on a chessboard.
