Newspapers headlines show us that once again political dissidents are being
"rounded up" to stifle their political dissent. Once again, this is
occurring without the objection, and perhaps with the assistance, of the
Clinton administration.

Gray Davis and Bill Lockyer stand idly by.

I am not talking about China, but about California, where Steve Kubby
(recent Libertarian Party candidate for governor) has been arrested by
rogue law enforcement agencies acting in direct violation of Proposition
215, the law of California.

The International Convention on Drugs, an international law, specifically
calls for member nations to suppress free speech on drug issues and
prevents member nations from legalizing drugs. In signing the convention,
the United States essentially agreed of the First Amendment and to thwart
democratic review of drug policy.

Kubby's arrest is a wakeup call. Are we going to listen?
