The war on drugs ruines millions of lives everyday, we have to find a way to end the war on drugs, before they drag us to the Fourth Reich. Do you think this is an extreme statement? Former Los Angeles Chief of Police Daryl Gates has said in deadly earnest that casual drug users should be taken out and shot, since they are traitors in the war on drugs.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A New Approach The driving force behind WARSTOP is our observation that past and current efforts to end the war have not as yet succeeded, and that in many respects, the war is being escalated. We admire and respect all the good people who have worked hard to educate people, who have put forward responsible views on the war, who have fought the battle against totalitarianism in the courts, who have protested, who have been jailed for their beliefs, who have attempted to organize grassroots political support for peace. We hope and believe that their faith and perseverance will someday be rewarded, but we think there may be other ways to hasten that day. We think it's time to get tough.
Our first project will be to target for retirement a politician whose views seem particularly cruel and inhumane: Representative Gerald B.H. Solomon (R, NY), a senior Congressman, presently chairman of the House Rules Committee. In brief, our hope is that by mobilizing a national effort to aid his political opponents in the '96 primary and, if necessary the general election, we can send a strong unambiguous message to other political drug warriors that it is no longer safe to make political capital from the sufferings of the war's victims. We believe this will prove effective in bringing peace a little closer.
Solomon is vulnerable to such an act of guerilla politics. He had the poor judgement to challenge Newt Gingrich for the Speaker's gavel last fall, and there was public speculation that Gingrich might give the chairmanship of Solomon's powerful Rules Committee to a less-senior Republican. Furthermore, as his ravings about the war on drugs become more irrational and extreme, it's probable that the people of his district will come to regard him as an embarassment. Finally, he has a penchant for telling outrageous lies and all indications are that he doesn't understand the error-checking aspects of Internet many-to-many communication, which makes it so much more difficult to get away with the Big Lie political tactic. The net can expose him for what he is.
