I am a registered Republican. The GOP can call me once this is over. A key Democratic congressman has a step-by-step plan to enact the end of federal marijuana prohibition in 2019. This beautiful free country I call home is not free to everyone, and the injustice of imprisoning ordinary people and ruining their lives because they medicate themselves with a plant breaks my heart. I fought for this country in Iraq 2004-05 as a US Army dismounted infantryman. I lost 3 of the best friends a man could ever know, one of whom was like a father to me. The fact that we fought for freedom and rights for our country, yet our country continues to put people in prison for something that is a God given right, is the most important issue today. Tax breaks are great, if you are not in prison. Manufacturing jobs are great, if you are not in prison. Gun ownership is awesome, if you are not in prison. Gay marriage is no problem, if you are not in prison. Everything we take for granted about the beautiful free country is great, as long as you are not in prison. I fought for freedom in Iraq, and I will continue to fight for freedom here in the US. Until we are free, I fight. I will be voting Democrat down the line on November 6th. Join me in freeing our fellow Americans who have been wrongly imprisoned for something that is a natural right, to take care of your own mind and body without permission from the government. Free our friends and family!
