And a P.P.S.

Talking about the Hispanic vote, has anybody wondered if it might be just a tad frustrating for somebody from, say, Mexico to see Liberals gleefully consume drug wars in the form of entertainment but banish them entirely from their political discourse? Like in never even saying the words and substituting them with “war on drugs”, as if these were interchangeable terms? How should it feel to see the entire complex and tragic issue reduced to the supremely important concerns of American consumers?

The only thing that Liberals are offering on the subject is “just legalize it” because they are convinced that as soon as the whim of a bunch of Americans to smoke a joint on weekend is satisfied, the entire economic, political and cultural reality that feeds drug cartels will magically disappear. Because, once again, there is nothing in existence aside from the wishes and consumer choices of isolated individuals.
