Attention-grabbing spots have emerged featuring female candidates firing machine guns, actors playing our founding fathers, and the "dirtier" side of dairy farms. Our Jim Acosta reports.

    Hemp for victory was a federal government campaign during WW2. Yes, the American Govt. encouraged American farmers to grow Marijuana for hemp rope. Hemp also produces superior cloth, requiring far less water and zero pesticides compared to cotton. Hemp produces fire resistant building material which is much stronger than tree fibers. Hemp produces paper that is far superior to paper from tree pulp.

    Harvesting Hemp 2x a year is far more 'Green' and containing common sense than obtaining a lesser product every 20 years from clear cutting a entire forest. Leave the forests alone, grow Hemp in the massive clear cuts resulting from horrific Republican led timber corporations.

    More political garbage, is what it is. If you are a conservative, a liberal or have any other political platform leanings, then you cannot truly be representative of the people. Only an independent thinker, without a political platform, can. Everytime anyone gets elected who is not truly an independent/independent thinker, the destructive two party monster, gets fed, yet again.

    When you hear things like "the party is bigger than any person", you are hearing the truth: that political party members are out for the good of the party, and not the people.

    The American people need to wake up, and cut the democratic, republican, conservative and liberal cancers out of the governmental body.
