Dilbert Creator Scott Adams Endorses Mitt Romney Because "Romney Might Legalize Weed"

    Dilbert Creator Scott Adams Endorses Mitt Romney For the Stupidest Possible Reason

    Dilbert creator Scott Adams is a rich white man who has turned his allegiance to Mitt Romney — I'll give you a moment to regain your composure. Okay. On Wednesday, Adams wrote a mildly coherent blog post explaining why he will be voting for Mitt Romney in November, one that starts with a hypothetical situation that includes the phrase, "For the record, President Obama did not technically kill anyone to get elected."

    After clearing that up, Adams says that he will not be voting for Barack Obama because of how the president has dealt with legal marijuana dispensaries in California. He goes onto cite the case of Aaron Sandusky (no relation, hopefully), the owner of a dispensary in Southern California who was sentenced to 10 years to life in prison in October. Adams calls this a "fireable offense," which, hey, fair enough. There are many legitimate reasons to not vote for Obama, and his continuation of the War on Drugs is certainly among them.

    But then Adams goes onto explain why he is also endorsing Mitt Romney, instead of, I don't know, hitting "publish" and going to run errands:

    Romney is likely to continue the same drug policies as the Obama administration. But he's enough of a chameleon and a pragmatist that one can't be sure.

    So, there you have it: vote for Mitt Romney because you're not sure what he will do, even if he is, for example, an outspoken opponent of medical marijuana. Personally, I've taken Adams' reasoning to heart and will also be voting for Mitt Romney as well, because he may erase my student loans and, let's see, personally fund the Party Down movie? That's real change.

    I've wondered similar things....One thing that we know about Mittens is that he simply DOES NOT CARE. Now, that *could* turn out to be a good thing for folks like us. He'll say whatever the greatest number of people want to hear. Last poll I heard, 50% of people in the US are pro legalizing Cannabis. Since Romney doesn't care one way or the other, he'll say whatever the masses want to hear, and if a mere 51% wants to legalize, he'll legalize just by virtue of him wanting the people to get their breads and circuses -- and nothing more -- from his admin. Sooo....yeah well he's a jerk....but at least we can kind-of manipulate his jerkiness to our advantage somewhat. I'm still voting Obama......but if Romney's whats-I-gots....well, he don't care about me and I don't care about him. But I do care about pot. Therefore, be it resolved, the 51% push drive will be on, and if it works? Who knows? Maybe we might get real legislation passed in some sort of backwards, indirect-direct-democracy kinda way. His hand signs the legislation that the MOST people in America want....did somebody say "National Bacon-Cheesburger Day????" Ohhh! The next day could be something like "Antacids strike back-day" (I bet that'll involve not only antacids, but anti-diarrheals, laxatives, anti-hyperlipidemics, a slap in the face to devout Jews and Muslims and Hindus and Buddhists, Vegetarians, Vegans, some forms of Hippie)

    I doubt that he "does not care." It's more like, he hasn't said anything about it because it hasn't come up. Drug legalization would go against Mitt-shit's religious principles as a Mormon, for one thing, and secondly, there is a lot of money in keeping marijuana illegal, and if Romney is anything, it's a capitalist. Finally, Republicans are generally more pro-prohibition despite their claims to want limited government interference in daily life. Neither candidate would legalize weed, because ultimately presidents have to support the status quo in order to maintain popular support. Decriminalization and medical usage will probably remain a state-level thing until almost every state has passed some law to that effect, and then the federal government will go along with it.
