But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system, flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.
This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.
Not merely the asinine war on Cannabis that denies a useful medicine and alternative to alcohol.
Not merely the asinine war on Opium and Coca leaves that not only denies useful medicines and alternatives to alcohol, nicotine and caffeine, but perverts these useful substances into infinitely more potentially dangerous ultra-concentrated drug forms.
But as well the broader FDA war on natural substances, favoring synthetic patent monopoly medicines that are generally infinitely more toxic and expensive- driving up health care costs like crazy, by denying 1st Amendment Rights to Natural Substances sold as medicines.
Let's not pretend that the problem with health care simply started with Obamacare.
Or, simply continue the carnage by continuing the same policies.
Could have the 45th U.S. President been referring to the "gangs" and drugs of big pharma?
