I just saw this clip of Pat Robertson supporting pot decriminalization and thought I'd share it with you all in case you felt the need for a little hope this time of year. Even a hardened, well-payed rightwinger can, if exposed to the negative effects of a bourgeois policy, see the error of the state's ways.
It's easy to forget that most people are able to change their opinion of something if they're presented with facts, clear arguments, and sometimes the human toll of their beliefs. If even Pat Robertson, who has made his fortune conning little old ladies into sending him their life savings, can support marijuana decriminalization after visiting prisons and seeing what the War on Drugs really means, then there's something human in each of us.
Happy holidays, folks.
