Are Voters this Stupid when it Comes to Bernie Sanders?

The legislators on the Left are always voting for laws that protect us from ourselves, taking away independent thought and decisions. It is a double edge sword for sure, some people need others to make decisions for them.

Laws where an individual’s behavior hurts others in all forms does have some merit…but c’mon Bernie and the same goes for Vermont and Iowa or any Bernie voters across the nation.

Bernie Sanders raises $3.3 million in first 10 hours after ...

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) in his first-ever campaign for the Senate made the legalization of all drug use one of the cornerstones of his policy platform.

Recruited in a 1972 special election as the Senate candidate for Vermont’s Liberty Union Party, Sanders promised that if elected, “All laws relating to prohibition of abortion, birth control, homosexual relations, and the use of drugs would be done away with,” the Rutland Daily Herald reported in December 1971.

“In a free society, individuals and not government have the right to decide what is best for their own lives, as long as their actions do not harm others,” Sanders said during the campaign for the seat he would eventually win in 2006. (source)


As the DEA explained in its 2019 National Drug Threat Assessment, also released Thursday, most synthetic opioids are produced in China and Mexico; methamphetamine and heroin are primarily Mexican, and much cocaine is produced in Colombia. All of the drugs are routinely smuggled over the porous southwestern border or, in the case of Chinese goods, sent in using the U.S. mail.

“We’re pleased that in 2018, drug overdose deaths declined over 4 percent overall, with even greater decreases—over 13 percent—in overdoses from controlled prescription opioids,” DEA acting administrator Uttam Dhillon said Thursday. “Many challenges remain, however, including the spread of fentanyl and methamphetamine across the country. DEA and its partners will continue to work diligently to combat the drug trafficking organizations that bring these deadly substances into our country and endanger the American people.”

As the drug crisis changes shape, lawmakers continue to struggle over how best to combat it. On Wednesday evening, the House of Representatives finally passed an extension of the DEA’s temporary scheduling of fentanyl’s synthetic analogs, giving law enforcement another year to prosecute traffickers in substances like acetyl fentanyl and carfentanil under the strictest section of the Controlled Substances Act. Eighty-six House Democrats, however, objected, with several taking to the floor to argue that a “public health” approach is preferable to the incarceration of drug dealers. (source)


Since fentanyl and carfentinil can be absorbed through the skin, eyes, or respiratory system, there is a very real danger for secondary exposures for firefighters and EMS personnel from drug residue on a patient’s clothing, furniture, and even carpeting. There have been numerous documented cases in the United States of firefighters and EMS personnel experiencing respiratory distress and other overdose symptoms after coming into incidental contact with fentanyl and carfentinil residue in the course of providing patient care. The lethality and ease of coming into contact with the drug underscores the need for firefighters and EMS personnel to exercise extreme caution when responding to suspected opioid-related calls. All responders should be careful to appropriately don and doff any personal protective equipment selected for use when responding to these calls.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration recently published a handbook and roll call video to educate first responders on the dangers presented by fentanyl and carfentinil. Fire chiefs should work closely with their medical directors to review this information and design protocols to protect firefighters and EMS personnel from exposures to these dangerous narcotics. Fire chiefs also should maintain regular contact with their law enforcement partners to understand which narcotics may be most prevalent in their communities. (source)

*** Has Bernie explained any of that? Not so much. Consider the real destruction of the thousands and thousands of the narcotic generation and the labor output competition with other nations.

Bernie sees the “War on Drugs” as a costly, destructive, and ineffective policy. Current drug laws have not worked. After spending billions of dollars and destroying millions of lives, there has been no real decrease in drug accessibility or use, as evidenced by the opioid epidemic, the rising rates of heroin use, and the scourge of meth. Bernie believes treatment, not punishment, is the answer, and he’s repeatedly introduced legislation to extensively reform the criminal justice system along these lines.

War on Drugs: The fifty year war on drugs is a failed policy that has led to mass incarceration of nonviolent offenders and has unfairly targeted people of color.

Treatment for Drug Offenders: Nonviolent drug offenders should not be incarcerated. Instead, they should have access to affordable treatment to address their drug dependencies.

Legalize Marijuana: Marijuana ought to be legalized.

Addressing the Heroin and Opioid Epidemics : Heroin and opioid abuse is at epidemic levels, and the U.S. is not addressing the crisis with the urgency and seriousness that is required. We must address this crisis by providing resources, proper treatment and healthcare professionals to the communities struggling with this epidemic.

Here’s a link to Bernie’s plan to legalize marijuana and his comprehensive plan, Justice and Safety for All,  to reform the criminal justice system.

  1. Here’s the best analysis of what’s happening in the USA!!!
    We are in a Civil War and the Democrats are committing TREASON!!!!


    This is fascinating as it’s one of the best descriptions of USA current Political situation today!.

    Dr. Jack Devere Minzey, born 6th October 1928, died 8 April 2018, was the Department Head of Education at Eastern Michigan University as well as a prolific Author of numerous Books, most of which were on the topic of Education, the Government role therein.

    Editor’s note:This was the last of Dr. Minzey’s works:
    Civil War: ‘How Do Civil Wars Happen?’ By Dr. Jack Devere Minzey
    Two or more sides disagree on who runs the Country as they cannot settle the question through Elections because they don’t even agree that Elections are how you decide who’s in charge. That’s the basic Issue here! Who decides, as to who runs the Country? When you hate each other but accept the Election results, you have a Country. When you stop accepting Election results, you have a ‘countdown’ to a Civil War!

    The Mueller Investigation was about removing President Trump from Office thus over turning the results of an Election. We all know that. But it’s not the 1st time they’ve done this. The 1st time a Republican President was elected this Century, they said he didn’t really win. The Supreme Court gave him the Election.There’s a pattern here!

    What sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican President really mean? It means they don’t accept the results of any Election that they don’t win. It means they don’t believe that transfers of power in this Country are determined by Elections. That’s a Civil War.

    There’s no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a Charity Baseball Game practice. But the Democrats have rejected America’s System of Government. This isn’t dissent. It’s not disagreement. You can hate the other Party. You can think they’re the worst thing that ever happened to the Country. But then you work harder to win the next Election. When you consistently reject the results of Elections that you don’t win, what you want is a Dictatorship. Your very own Democratic Dictatorship.

    The only legitimate exercise of power in this Country, America, according to Democrats, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it’s inherently illegitimate. The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the Country through Federal Judges & Bureaucrats. Every time that a Federal Judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can’t scratch his own back without his say so, that’s the Civil War.

    America’s System of Government is based on the Constitution, but that’s not the System that runs this Country. The Democrat’s System is that any part of Government that it runs gets Total, Unlimited Power over the Country.

    If the Democrats are in the White House, then the President can do anything! I mean anything. He can have his own ‘Amnesty for illegal Aliens’. He can Fine those People, for not having Health Insurance. He can use the IRS as his own Police Force imprisoning Citizens who speak against him. He can provide guns, $dollars,’fast & furious, ‘Iran Nuclear Deal’ to other Countries to support his own Agenda, watching while one of America’s Ambassador’s is dragged through the Streets murdered doing nothing to aid American Citizens. His power is unlimited. He’s a Dictator.

    But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can’t do anything. He isn’t even allowed to undo the ‘Illegal Alien Amnesty’ that his Predecessor illegally invented. A Democrat in the White House has ‘discretion’ to completely decide every aspect of Immigration Policy. A Republican doesn’t even have the ‘discretion’ to reverse him. That’s how the game is played. That’s how America, U.S.A.this Country is run. Sad but true, although the ‘Left’ hasn’t yet won that particular fight.

    When a Democrat is in the White House, States aren’t even allowed to enforce Immigration Law. But when a Republican is in the White House, States can create their own Immigration Laws.

    Under Obama, a State wasn’t allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission. But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an Independent Republic, sign Treaties with other Countries The Constitution has something to say about that. Whether it’s Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, Democratic Left moves power around to run the Country. If it controls an Institution, then that Institution is suddenly the supreme power in the Country. This is what is ‘moving’ Dictatorship.

    Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding: Professional Government is a Guild. Like Medieval Guilds. You can’t serve in it if you’re not a Member. If you haven’t been indoctrinated into its ‘arcane rituals’. If you aren’t in the ‘Club’. Trump isn’t in the ‘Club’. He brought in a bunch of People who aren’t in the ‘Club’ with him.

    Now we’re seeing what the Pros do when ‘Amateurs’ try to walk in on them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down. That’s not a ‘Free’ Country! It’s not a ‘Free’ Country when FBI Agents who support Hillary take out an ‘Insurance Policy’ against Trump winning the Election. It’s not a ‘Free’ Country when Obama Officials engage in massive unmasking of the Opposition. It’s not a ‘Free’ Country when the Media responds to the other Person winning by trying to ban the Conservative Media that supported Trump from the Social Media. It’s not a ‘Free’ Country when all of the above collude together to overturn an Election because the Person who wasn’t supposed to Win did.

    Have no doubt, Americans are in a Civil War between ‘Conservative Volunteer’ Government with a ‘Leftist, Socialist, Democrat Professional’ Government.

    Well now Pilgrims & Patriots, having read the above, There are 2 things: Forward this very ‘Timely’, very ‘Important Analysis’ to those whom you believe think like you do & those that don’t. Also make sure you Vote on every Election Day!………..Oh, and exactly how do you define Treason?
