Watch Ron Paul’s entire speech in San Francisco here:

This is one of his most impressive speeches that I have heard.

I agree with his points about holding politicians to the fire, and not let them double-talk their way through an election.

A lot of politicians speak a good game, but they don’t play by the rules that they themselves define.

I pointed out the issues surrounding the drug war.

Some activists will support anything that is popular.
Some activists will support anything having anything to do with cannabis.
Real freedom loving activists are very particular about what they support.

There are 4 pieces of legislation that I mentioned:

HR 1983:

HR 2306
http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h112-2306

I-502

I-505

In those examples you can see a similar topic (Cannabis law reform) being addressed.
The differences are great though.   They are as different as night and day, and this is why I can’t grasp how some activists can support all of these.   I certainly can’t understand how anyone who cares about liberty could possibly support  HR 1983, or I-502.

Ron Paul discusses the need to hold politicians feet to the fire, and call them on their double talk.

I am one freedom lover who doesn’t care what is popular, I care about freedom and liberty above all other social notions.
