Ok, the problem with that poll, from what i see in the page http://reason.com/poll/2012/09/26/reaso ... l-typology" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; is that they divide the political spectrum in 4 quarters, and the central area for "centrists" is not accounted for as such. With this division, someone who ended up as "communitarian" could become "libertarian" with only a couple of answers changed, if he was very near the geometrical center of the chart. If you could find a chart that included the "centrist" division, i'm fairly sure that's where most people would be.3rd parties are only left the ideological fringes.
It's a shame that asking a battery of questions to identify an ideology then they just settle for 4 tags. They could at least plot a chart showing with dots each individual result!
I see... well i guess that the only way to get rid of that expense would be to actually legalize it... but how complex would be the legalization of drug to make it work? Because i know that theoretically is a good solution, but the transition might be complicated, and it would necessary to be prepared for a short-term spike of the number of addicts.Federal spending on drug control policies. (There's more at the state level.) It includes a ton of stuff. Prevention programs, international investigations of cartels, trafficking interruption, etc. But the biggest share goes to domestic law enforcement. Investigating people, arresting them, trying them, and putting them in prison. (This also includes doing SWAT raids on dispensaries that (a) reduce the market shares of dangerous cartels and (b) are authorized by state law to operate.)The drug control spending... what does it include?
Another thing... swat raids on the dispensaries? aren't they legal? what's the point then?
