Barney Frank for President

Any politician who says:

"The vast amount of human activity ought to be none of the government's business. I don't think it is the government's business to tell you how to spend your leisure time."

might actually be worth the effort to vote for! Where's a pen to write him in?

Better yet, it was in the context of his introducing"a proposal to end federal penalties for Americans carrying fewer than 100 grams, almost a quarter-pound, of the substance."

Is it too much to hope for that Rep. Frank includes economic activity other than drug purchases in the things that are in that"vast amount of human activity" that are none of government's business?
