"...Freedom is never Free."
And never lasts much longer than just enough time for the politicians to pass laws against it.
BUT without laws, there is no society or civilization, then it become the law of the jungle and survival of the fittest. Darwin's Rules
Well, there are some laws that make sense but a lot more that don't. I think we could be just as civilized with a thousandth as many laws as there are on the books. Of course some of us could be civil if there were no laws on the books.
For every law, a freedom dies. So at what point do we say enough with the laws because you are killing our freedoms. I personally know of several people that use certain "illegal" substances and are causing no harm to anyone other than themselves. I also know several people that are abusing legal substances and making everyone's life miserable. Which is preferable?
Let's do away with the idiotic laws, whether it is for drugs, cars, habitations, etc. I once looked into moving closer to a job I held, but when I heard the ridiculous laws the small town had in effect, I decided I would rather drive a half an hour each way. You basically had no control over your property. The city had ordinances on what type of trees you could plant, how high you fence could be, what sort of decorations you could have in your yard and windows. I told the person selling the house that I could not live there, because I like my freedom and my right to express myself.
I live in a state that is suing to keep the Affordable Healthcare Act from being enacted, the State Attorney states that the government cannot mandate people have to have insurance. Meanwhile they are stepping up on car insurance enforcement. Talk about being two faced. Either you can't mandate insurance or you can. If you can tell people they have to have one type of insurance, then you can mandate all types of insurance.
