Thorpe AND Democrats Don’t Get The Irony

By Elisha Dorfsmith

Arizona Dems are calling Bob Thorpe a hypocrite (and rightly so) for his support for a ballot measure that would require future ballot measures to pass by 75% if they conflict with Federal Law.

The irony there, of course, is that this law would have destroyed Prop 122 which Bob Thorpe was a big supporter of.

Where the Dems fail miserably and show their own hypocrisy is when they call people who support nullification of unjust federal laws “Neo-Confederates”.  After all, they are supporting the nullification of federal marijuana laws in the State of Arizona and elsewhere.

The irony works both ways. They would never call a supporter of Colorado’s marijuana legalization a Neo-Confederate. A little consistency on both sides would be nice once in a while.

I was going to contact Bob Thorpe on Twitter and let him know my thoughts on his proposed ballot measure but he has blocked me once again (click photo to enlarge).

    Anything Bob Thorpe does is an irony by default. If you ever read his silly little book. “Reclaim Liberty: 3-Step Plan for Restoring Our Constitutional Government” you’d know what I mean. Which by the way is maybe, at best, at a seventh grade level. I being very generous here.

    What’s sad is I actually campaigned for this clown several years ago because I couldn’t stand the idea of one of his opponents, Doug Ballard, whom I know personally, going to the state house. But you know what? The lesser of two evils is still evil. Or maybe I should say dumb or dumber is still dumb. That’s why I’m now a registered Libertarian. Screw the status quo and the morons that they put up for public office. Choice is an illusion in American politics and will continue to be so until enough of us awaken to the dry-rot of the two party system. Damn, I need a drink now.
