Penn Jillette is not only an excellent illusionist, he’s a well spoken advocate of libertarianism. Unlike many libertarians (including myself) Penn seems to have a knack for explaining concepts in very clear language, which he did when addressing Obama’s hypocrisy regarding the war on drugs:
Do we believe, even for a second, that if Obama had been busted for marijuana — under the laws that he condones — would his life have been better? If Obama had been caught with the marijuana that he says he uses, and ‘maybe a little blow’… if he had been busted under his laws, he would have done hard f*cking time. And if he had done time in prison, time in federal prison, time for his ‘weed’ and ‘a little blow,’ he would not be President of the United States of America. He would not have gone to his fancy-a** college, he would not have sold books that sold millions and millions of copies and made millions and millions of dollars, he would not have a beautiful, smart wife, he would not have a great job. He would have been in f*cking prison, and it’s not a god damn joke. People who smoke marijuana must be set free. It is insane to lock people up.
The Obama administration has been cracking down on medical marijuana facilities even though Obama himself has admitted to using marijuana and cocaine. Had Obama been caught he would be suffering the fan of so many victims of victimless “crimes” instead of sitting in the Oval Office ordering the murder of American citizens.
I’m guessing Obama never wonders what would have happened to him under many of the laws he pushes to adamantly to enforce. Does he stop to consider the fact that under his current war on drugs he’s be sitting in prison? Probably not, psychopaths generally don’t stop to consider others.
