Six Reasons To Say NO To Proposal 1

Six Liberty Reasons to Vote Against Recreational Marijuana

A raft of myths props up Proposal 18-1, the Michigan ballot initiative for recreational marijuana. Freedom thrives when truth is spoken, so from a health policy nurse, here are the facts about the most common myths in the mitten.

Myth #1: Prop 1 will improve access to medical marijuana and help sick people.

Fact: The most common argument is also the least supported by fact. Proposal language specifically excludes any impact upon medical marijuana, which Michigan legalized in 2008. Informed voters will discount medical arguments as irrelevant to the MI Nov 6, 2018 ballot.

Myth 2: Liberty means doing whatever we want, whenever we want.

Fact: The libertine argument in no way supports liberty. Lacking medical purpose, only escapism and substance abuse remain as reasons for recreational drugs. Freedom to become a pothead is not freedom at all, but self-destruction.

Myth 3: Legalizing marijuana is about liberty.

RightMi.com Nov 6 Voter Guide

Our (probably not surprising) picks for tomorrow's big vote.

This ought to be simple enough.

Starting off with the premise that the Democrat Party has gone off the deep end, I will save a lot of you the time by recommending that none of those from the D brand are worthy of anyone’s vote.  The #PartyOfCrime has earned it’s hashtag, as well as a few more derogatory labels.

From the top to the bottom, it has defamed honorable persons on the national stage, to those locally deciding to not even show up.  Brett Kavanaugh was publicly abused in a frenetic way that has never before been seen. And locally, we have a Democrat county commission candidate who forgot to let folks know she was moving 80 miles away before the election.

Ya know, while I don’t like to get too serious about some things, I believe that when selecting those who represent us in our Republic, it means something.  Elections have consequences, and civil discourse is somewhat tough when dealing with those who cannot respect process or even take a leadership role seriously.

In any event, we start at the Governor’s race.
