We are witnessing the largest government takeover of our personal lives

Absolutely, the US arrests 600,000 people every year for Marijuana. Why?

Because It is a multi billion dollar industry.

The most ridiculous part of the farce that is the "Drug War" is that the CIA traffics most the cocaine and heroin worldwide.

Not too informed on the whole marijuana debate but do agree that we are seeing a lot of governments (including here in the U.S.) use this global recession of sorts as an excuse to regulate our lives and pocketbooks more and more. The Libertarian Party as a whole I would say is quite active but the problem in the U.S is that the party has to compete with the monied interests and dominance of the two party system. The media gives the two parties all of the coverage and access needed to control the debate on issues. Therefore most Americans feel pressured to back candidates from those two parties. Although there was a glimpse of the activism that lies beneath the surface when Ron Paul entered the race. I think the libertarian voter would fully support and be energized by more person such as him.

Heavily agreed. Unfortunately, Ron Paul's campaign topics and policies are a little too radical and idealistic for most Americans to accept so suddenly. If some revolutionary force can take control of one of the main media outlets and educate the masses on the true identity of the Federal Reserve, then there would be an uproar the next day with Ron Paul on the front lines.

It makes me sad how Constitutionalism is now considered "radical"? Ron Paul has NEVER voted on anything that would be unConstitutional, yet people call him a "kook" for his policies. I am glad he has raised so much awareness among the youth of the nation. The cartel of banksters that are hijacking this nation are his number one concern. End the Fed.
