And enabled to cops to lock up tons of violent criminals on unrelated charges. Which is a plus.

War on Drugs haven't accompished nothing. They have gutted the inner cities and created the perfect environment for Cultural Marxism and Race War to move forward. They have created the 2nd largest imprisoned population per capita in the entire world. They have poured Trillions of dollars into Law Enforcement and Privatized Prison Industrial Complex hands.

It's accomplished none of its stated goals - but then again so has Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen....

Gun laws are just tip of the iceberg.

US political power has been hijacked by greed and corruption.

Politicians don't make laws that benefit the people. Cause that doesn't create any political donations which are needed to stay in power. Extremely difficult to get anything passed even with political donations. Politicians have no long term accountability to their decisions. Knowingly pass a horrible laws. Channel funds to foreign powers when deficit spend on unsurpassed rate. No analysis on return on dollar spent analysis. Borrow from other budgets/the future with no plan on repayment.

People will continue to get screwed royally until the politicians aren't allowed to take any donations or benefits directly (except being any assets they held prior to election) from the laws/policies they pass. Absolutely no formal review process the validate whether the laws are working as intended. No accountability to the impact on the public of their new/amended laws or policies. Undoubtedly, the political system is broken.

You're right. The big money needs to be taken out of politics. Congress critters spend about 2/3 of their time fund-raising. Political contributions should be from individual donors only, with the standard maximum. And term limits. 2 terms and GTFO. Citizen legislators only. Politics should not be a career. No more retirement benefits. Go back to work and get those.

It isn't just money, the endgame is power and control. Money isn't important when you have all the power. You don't need money, if so they can just take it. There is no way they can get total control of the populace without taking the arms of those people. Look at the history of every country that has fallen to the powers that be throughout and you'll see what had to happen first. They had to control the arms. People tell me the military and police could clean us up in no time if bullets started flying. But that has never worked throughout history. There's a reason for that, the people who give orders to the military and police making then attack the people, live among us the people. Their families have to eat, go to doctors, etc they are targets for us. Unless they moved every politician, judge, cop and their families into a defended compound with enough medicine and supplies to last indefinitely it would be impossible to keep them safe from the people.

I know bleeding hearts will say "we wouldn't shoot their wives or kids", bullshit! When they are trying to destroy you and kill your family if you won't take theirs out you need to shoot yourself because you have failed as a man. The Old Testament "eye for and eye" comes into play then. That first kid or wife would be hard on you, sure. That just means your human. But there's an old acronym that answers that question. "ATFOTRAF" it has a double meaning, if it's a murder they can only put you death one time, the ones you murder after the first one are freebees . If it's said about something unpleasant the first one takes the most emotional toil on you, but "After The First One The Rest Are Free".

Remember this from Orwell's '1984'?

“Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.”

Funny how our taxpayer dollars fund both the Afghan poppy fields and the War on Drugs at home.

The war on drugs is an ideological war. It will last decades

If they want a war on guns, it will be a physical war. expect it to end swiftly.
