Tuesday's Daily Brief: Shadow Conventions 2012 Discuss What Candidates Don't

Tuesday, August 28, 2012
Arianna Huffington: HuffPost Live is bringing you Shadow Conventions 2012 with the goal of sparking a national conversation on three issues that neither party is seriously addressing: the corrupting influence of money on our politics, the persistence of poverty in America, and the disastrous war on drugs. Our new streaming network will devote a day during each of the national conventions to focusing on one of those three issues. Today, HuffPost Live's team of host/producers will be joined by a broad range of politicians, thought leaders, activists, and celebrities for in-depth interviews and panel discussions on various aspects of the drug war. And we want you to be a central part of these discussions. That's what HuffPost Live is all about -- sparking real conversations about issues that impact our lives. The Shadow Conventions are your conventions. Join us and be part of a convention that's unscripted, surprising, and a lot more interesting than the over-produced political commercials in Tampa and Charlotte.

Opposing the war on drugs is often portrayed as a liberal issue. But it is also a conservative issue for anyone who champions classic "republican" values.
Kevin A. Sabet, Ph.D.: Legalization Is Not the Answer
It makes sense to devote our time and resources now to stopping drug use before it starts, intervening on early use, treating addiction, and enforcing our laws justly and smartly.
Harry Shearer: In Praise of Waste, Fraud and Abuse
As we wait to see what effect Isaac will have on the Army Corps of Engineers $10 billion-plus "hurricane risk reduction system" in New Orleans, I can't help thinking about last week's news from levees.org. When government adopts efficiency as its top priority, decisions like the Corps' get made. And people die.
