I honestly feel like I can run for president. All politics are just smoke and mirrors. We vote for people who tell us what they will try to do when elected. Presidency means you can communicate with all types of people because all types of people are the ones electing the president. A president can stand in front of millions of people and feel natural about it. The president is someone who has completely over come stage fright. We also expect our president to be the answer to all of America’s problems. I feel like we need to keep in mind that in the end it’s the people who vote for everyone in politics so we as a nation pick these people to run this country, crazy I know. We as the people even pick our supreme court leaders and the great interpreters of our constitution. (It’s the job of the president to elect the justices, and who votes for the president, people) We even vote locally and for our states senators. So in conclusion when we get mad at government we are actually trying not to point fingers back at the people who elected those people in office.
Here is another thought. Ever wonder why our Capitol decided to make weed illegal? I have this thought that government wants to keep the people from realizing how dysfunctional our government truly is, and there slowly loosing the battle. In the past six months there has been history in the making shit with all this legalize weed campaign. We have learned through our past that getting together and campaigning and sharing ideas and thoughts truly works (women’s rights, racism, gay rights) in persuading government; because government is afraid to change because change means only two things, good or bad results.
We have realized that when government bans something it becomes extremely popular (prohibition). So when weed becomes completely legal we are all going to get along and smoke and then in great numbers could potentially, stick with me, change how our country operates and functions. Then people will flock to America to freely smoke, once again stick with me, and in greater numbers could take over the world and force countries to live like the American people.
The constitution is a piece of paper but has ultimately created the best country in the world. Once more people discover you can freely smoke in some places of the United states they will come from miles and miles. Increasing revenue in the fees the governement puts on becoming a citizen, increasing population, stimulating the economy (to the booming point), diminishing ignorance with wide variety of people and more. The government is ultimately afraid of the money weed can bring in (meaning they could fund medical advancements leading to cures for cancer and potentially living forever or raise social security so maybe old people can enjoy life just a little more, have health care for everyone, advancements in technology leading to flying cars and maybe fund shit that doesn’t allow people to feel the harsh punch hunger throws at you). I completely understand why my government is being cautios about weed because politicians are the only ones who take into consideration what could happen if weed becomes legal (it is not possible to predict the future but not a bad idea to contemplate on what could actually happen. The American people are under a false belief that weed is the cure to everything. Government is taking their time to make a decision because even our politicians are afraid of what could happen when everyone in our nation can legally smoke.
Will we become a stupid nation? Will we all get bored of smoking then ultimately sparking the drug market to satisfy our sense of wonder? Will our empire fall because we were just so sure weed is the answer? Will other countries judge us for our laws, (Amersterdam is a country with lenient laws for pot use; oh that’s cool I guess, I hear nothing else of their country besides the fact that you can smoke their. They don’t have a great economy, it’s the size of vermont, and their is nothing interesting their except the fact that you can smoke their)? Will we regret the decision then have to learn about our nations mistake in class like slavery ( I am really ready to live in a country where our history is nothing but achievements and breakthroughs)? Or is it truly a wonder plant?
