War on Drugs

I think that I’ve come a long way on this issue.  For ever I have been the guy that says all drugs should be illegal and remain illegal.  When I was  asked about marijuana I remained adamant; “No way”!

Over the years I think that I’ve developed a new attitude, one more consistent with my Libertarian views and perhaps older age.  I find myself in changing existing laws to allow the use of certain drugs and to decriminalize the use of others.

Senate Race 2010: V

Tonight looks like a good night to update some of the races.

Let’s look at the first group; Retiring Democrats

State Inc Party R-Candidate D-Candidate Leader Spread
CT D McMahon Blumenthol D 22
DE D Castle Open R 20
IL D Kirk Giannoulias R 5
ND D Hoevan Open R 24
IN D Coats Ellsworth R 12

I have moved the Indiana race to retiring Democrats; Mr. Bayh retired.  Not much has changed since last time I posted except that McMahon has slipped and Castle has surged.

Based on this and restarting the count we have the Republicans gaining 4 seats.

Score:  Democrats 55 Republicans 45

Not bad.
