Lamar Smith is a big-government Republican. He repeatedly blocks any attempts to reform the war on cannabis, possibly due to his ties to the Alcohol and Tobacco lobbies. As a person who prefers less government intervention, I fully oppose Lamar Smith. His sponsoring of the notorious SOPA (internet censorship) bill should mark him as a prime target for small-government conservatives in Texas looking to change the status quo.
