Our new Attorney General, for one thing. I'd guess it won't take long before Sessions denounces Paul as a druggie in waiting.


Anyone who actually believes in the Constitution and due process would oppose civil forfeiture

Matt Stone - I hate conservatives, but I really f'ing hate liberals

It's not a simple cut and dried thing. Not even genius prevents people from being fundamentally wrong about things outside their area of expertise.

Sometimes you say things that are unequivocally correct. 

Jeff is absolutely right, even smart people can be wrong and when they are, their intelligence usually just means they are better able to defend and maintain their delusions.

Painting our opponents as merely stupid will only leaves us at a disadvantage when fighting them and their bad ideas.

Edit, I agree, anyone who cares about liberty should oppose civil forfeiture.  Unfortunately, few of our representatives and fellow countrymen actually care about liberty.  Legislators care about maintaining their jobs and the people are far more concerned about phantom threats to safety than to actual threats to freedom.
