From an interview with The Ticket:
In 1996, you introduced a bill that would have given the death penalty to drug smugglers. Do you still stand by that?Why not execute anyone found with drugs? Wouldn't that be even more "successful?" Also, why stop with illegal drugs? Lets execute people found with prescription medicine which could be abused, not to mention alcohol users!
Why are you being so soft on these "un-American" drug users, Newt?
Hell, let's just execute everyone for everything the government says is a crime, just like Draco himself!
Boy, this "governing" thing sure is easy!
Meanwhile, Ron Paul didn't endorse heroin use like this would-be-dictator would have people believe, he called for the end of drug prohibition the same as ending alcohol prohibition in the 30's.
What Newt conveniently ignores is the level of violence the state uses against non-violent, non-criminals under the pretense of "enforcing drug laws."
How many innocent people have been abused and killed in botched drug raids?
Here's a few recent examples:
- SWAT Team Flash-bangs Grandmother During Botched Drug Raid, Gives Her Heart Attack
- 68-year-old grandfather of 12 called “nicest guy in the world” killed in drug raid
- Drug cops smash into wrong house, terrorize elderly couple: "My parents are refugees from the Soviet Union. They are naturalized citizens. They have relatives there who were abused for political reasons. You might expect it there, but not here..."
How is this not considered horrible violence? Oh that's right, because the people in state issued costumes with shiny badges are above the laws and moral codes which apply to us little people.
