After our Nov. 3 elections, the next day the White House said it would
ignore the overwhelmingly passed medical marijuana initiatives in five
states and Washington, D.C. Wow! I hear now on the propaganda
networks, and have since the first grade in public school, that we
live in a democracy.

I am afraid that's a big lie. The truth is we live in a hypocrisy.
After voting Nov. 3, then hearing this news Nov. 4, I questioned my
own participation in this fraud of a democracy.

Now I understand why less than half of registered voters
