One thing I know: legalized pot and gay marriage has ZERO effect on my life and livelihood. If we sacrificed votes for opposing that, we failed. This country is at an economic abyss and I couldn’t give a damn about pot and gay issues.

These two go together. I mean, what type of man would want to marry another man unless they were high on weed?

I dunno. That’d have to be some pretty potent weed. And I mean something überhashish. A bajillion times more potent than what they sell in Amsterdam.

Good. When more gay celebrities and Kennedy’s go on their Aspen vacations they can get high and go skiing and run into more trees.

My vote helped. It's none of my business if someone wants to get high, any more than if they want to get drunk.

Being amoral is no way to either improve your country or get to heaven. Plus it makes you stick out like a sore thumb on Jim’s forum. Oh, BTW, those were not national issues and had nothing to do with the Presidential results.

I live in WA. It doesn’t matter how many times these idiots vote pot in. It is still illegal under federal law. Changing state law Does Not make it legal.

My son is a Federal Law Enforcement Officer. I would LOVE to watch one of these little collage pukes (that’s exactly what they are) fire up a joint in front of him. Without being cuffed and stuffed. And then attempt to tell him that pot is legal. Good luck with that.

The country’s decline in traditional moral values goes hand-in-hand with its economic decline. The two cannot be separated from each other. When you have a population that believes in the mantra “if it feels good, do it,” you have an entitlement society that will be all too happy to loot the treasury to line their own pockets. Unless we cultivate a population who believes in self-restraint, you will have a country whose standard of living and sense of well-being declines in every way, on every level.

History has proven that a population will not have self-restraint unless they have widespread religious conviction. It is not a quality that comes pre-packaged as a part of human nature. It must be instilled artificially one way or another. The only way that has proven successful throughout history is for people to be taught to believe in a higher power that will either offer rewards or mete out punishment for not exercising said self-restraint.

I think I have to be tolerant on alcohol and marijuana, but that doesn’t mean I have to endorse their usage in “destructive ways.”

People who are high still have to respect the property and persons of others.

I need to stay sober and sane as far as I’m concerned. I lived around a lot of “secondhand” pot smoke in my college dorm. It wasn’t attractive to me. My experiments with alcohol made me sick and I gave it up as a high a long time ago.

So I’ll wish you sobriety and sanity and get ready to sleep.

Actually, why should not be churches and non profits be taxed? If my entity is taxed half of my income, why isn’t anyone else? Churches, especially black churches, have become political organizations. I say either tax ALL churches/mosques/temples or do not tax anything at all.

That long? Take a long look at Texas my friend, Texas is now a minority-majority state, Houston elected a lesbian mayor, Dallas a lesbian sheriff, and the four largest cities all went Obama. On top of that, as you say, Texas is filling up with liberals from California and New England (the Bush clan were ahead of the curve).

2016 will be the last election Texas votes GOP for President, if 2012 isn't.

Um, what? You do realize drug cartels are the result of prohibition, don’t you? There’s no mention of shootouts amongst the cola cartels with legal companies like Coke and Pepsin (though with Bloomberg who knows?).

well of all the positions we typically associate with liberals, I personally agree that pot should be decriminalized... along with all other drugs. There is a very solid argument against the “war on drugs”... the first one being, it’s not working and it never will. It also costs us billions of dollars, it strips individual rights, paves a path for law enforcement to steal private property, execute midnight smash and grab warrant that get people killed, it’s also a good excuse to expand things like the patriot act and TSA... all in the name of prohibition that we know damn good and well doesn’t work. The drug lords love us for it. The only persons who should have the ability to prohibit drug use are private property owners.. and of course, employers who need sober employees

Wow! I voted against it in Maine.

These people don't care about marriage. It's an attack on the Church and traditional values.

Marriage in my eyes is between God and the two who get married which is man and woman. But there have been so called liberal churches that would marry same sex couples.

The had civil unions but NO, they just had to make a law for gay marriage so they can spit at the cross of our God. That's all they wanted.

Next they will be trying to force the churches to allow gay pastors, priests...etc.

That’s quite all right, unless you’re running a “family values” centered business, and you’re forced to do something for a gay wedding because you don’t fall under the exemption for religious organizations.

This country has turned its back on God, and people are not ashamed of it. Conservative Christians are mocked openly by the “tolerance” crowd, and that is ok, but you can march down the street naked in a gay parade, support abortion through 9 months, want redistribution of wealth, and smoke pot and be celebrated amongst the media and society.

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
John Adams is a signer of the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and our second President.

Benjamin Rush, Signer of the Declaration of Independence said. “[T]he only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be aid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments. Without religion, I believe that learning does real mischief to the morals and principles of mankind.”

Noah Webster, author of the first American Speller and the first Dictionary said, “[T]he Christian religion, in its purity, is the basis, or rather the source of all genuine freedom in government. . . . and I am persuaded that no civil government of a republican form can exist and be durable in which the principles of that religion have not a controlling influence.”

Gouverneur Morris, Penman and Signer of the Constitution. “[F]or avoiding the extremes of despotism or anarchy . . . the only ground of hope must be on the morals of the people. I believe that religion is the only solid base of morals and that morals are the only possible support of free governments. [T]herefore education should teach the precepts of religion and the duties of man towards God.”

Fisher Ames author of the final wording for the First Amendment wrote, “[Why] should not the Bible regain the place it once held as a school book? Its morals are pure, its examples captivating and noble. The reverence for the Sacred Book that is thus early impressed lasts long; and probably if not impressed in infancy, never takes firm hold of the mind.”

John Jay, Original Chief-Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court , “The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the word of God and teaches us the way to be happy in this world and in the next. Continue therefore to read it and to regulate your life by its precepts.”

James Wilson, Signer of the Constitution; U. S. Supreme Court Justice, “Human law must rest its authority ultimately upon the authority of that law which is divine. . . . Far from being rivals or enemies, religion and law are twin sisters, friends, and mutual assistants. Indeed, these two sciences run into each other.”

Noah Webster, author of the first American Speller and the first Dictionary stated, “The moral principles and precepts contained in the scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws. . . All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.”

Robert Winthrop, Speaker of the U. S. House, “Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled either by a power within them or by a power without them; either by the Word of God or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet.”

George Washington, General of the Revolutionary Army, president of the Constitutional Convention, First President of the United States of America, Father of our nation, “ Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society.”

Benjamin Franklin, Signer of the Declaration of Independence “[O]nly a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”

“Whereas true religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness . . . it is hereby earnestly recommended to the several States to take the most effectual measures for the encouragement thereof.” Continental Congress, 1778

I also voted for marijuana here in Washington state. People here already use it in great numbers. Now the state can make use of that to help balance our budget. Additionally this is reported to be a huge blow to the cartels in Mexico - I love that.

A short time ago here a young kid went to jail for it and died from a food allergy because at the jail they did not make sure his meal was allergy free for him.

Additionally anyone questioning this should read this link

There’s a reason why liberals want this stuff. And it’s not because they want to maximize freedom. They know that culture matters. You don’t but that is why they won.
