What happened to popular sovereignty?

Cigarettes have chemicals like rat poison, piss, nail polish remover, and antifreeze.
Alcohol destroys the liver and gets you *WAY* worse when you're wasted than when you're high.
Cannabis is a natural plant with disease fighting qualities, yet it's illegal?

I love that. I just about puke when I hear old cliches like, "The Freest Nation on Earth."
Money my brethren. People are simply being payed by those who make money from us for it being illegal. America kind of has this 'illusion of freedom' thing going on at the moment, but maybe it has been going on farther then I or you realize?
While that may be true, that doesn't mean we aren't still royally FUCKED. Being "better than China" isn't exactly something to hang your hat on.
I also take issue with the military industrialists and other industrialists waging war and placing the blanket statement on it that they are "protecting our freedoms." BARF.
Looking back at our nation's short history, the laws have been written to advance certain groups and hold back others all along. Nothing has changed there really. It's just the "how and what" that has changed. More and more, very important decisions are being made by factions like NATO/The UN which are outside of the purview of our Constitution and are without representation of the people. Globalism is the new "sovereignty."

The Social Contract happened. Back when the United States were just starting out, the people of a nation agreed to a social contract. An agreement whereby citizens of a nation give up some of their powers, in return for protection and security. After so many years of it being incorporated into this nation and other societies, there's not much we can do about it. We are simply born, or coerced if you will, into this agreement.
