I do. I hope he finds peace some day. I hope that his understanding will come soon that he is not going to win. We are not against America. We are Americans. And people of all other countries too, are eager to be friends with us, the leadership of this country is lying to us.
They do not hate our “freedom” they hate our government. The government defines itself as freedom. It defines war as peace making. It is making peace in the Middle East — the peace of the grave.

So all you Republicans who are reading this and think that I hate you, I do not. I despise the things that are being done in your name. I am asking you to withdraw your consent. I am saying that you should take some responsibility to find out what is going on and pull your own head out and say you won’t be party to it. You won’t be party and that means you won’t be in the same party. Do you understand?
You always have a choice to belong to any organization. You never have to sign away your right to disagree, and to express your disagreement through disassociation. If you have a member that behaves in ways unacceptable, then you have a choice of either removing that member from the organization or removing yourself. You can stay and negotiate if you are making progress and if the organization has not descended to the point of committing crimes. When the organization commits crimes it is a criminal organization. You are a member of a criminal organization if you are a Republican today.
Please come out of there. Let this be reduced to the smallest number of evil actors and we can deal with them peacefully. There is no need for you to fight us, and we will care about you and take as much time as it requires to help. We love you all.
Will you please accept that your friends and your loved ones use cannabis? Will you please stop condemning us? Will you love us and care for us, as we will for you? That is the base of this conflict, today.
