Taking Away Our Freedoms & Property Rights
Most of the Antismoking crusaders desire is to make society in their image.
Smoking is but the tip of the iceberg and it is an easy target. Most
of us don't like cigarettes and therefore we don't care too much about
smoking bans. But these bans take away our freedom. Just because
we don't use a particular freedom doesn't mean that we should allow it to be
taken away. It started with nonsmoking sections in airplanes, then a
simple ban in public government buildings and hospitals which ostracized
smokers to small isolated areas. Then nonsmoking areas were extended
to restaurants which were required to install new and often expensive
ventilation systems. Now virtually everything including stadiums,
beaches, an other outdoor venues are included. Large and small
cities from Chicago to Oshkosh are have or are trying to institute total bans the likes
of New York City or worse.
People are now even being banned from smoking in their own homes.
Our Rights are endowed from our Creator only to be taken away by our government.
The government does not give us any freedoms, that is done by our Creator as
acknowledged by our founding documents. In fact, every time the
government gets involved in our lives, it takes away some of our freedom.
Wouldn't we be better off if Congress was only in session a few months of
each year? Limited government and laws are needed to prevent anarchy
but there is a point (which we have already crossed over) where too many
freedoms have been taken away and government becomes totalitarian.
Unfortunately, most people because they are too busy, don't realize the
significance of what is happening, or it doesn't affect them, don't do
anything until freedoms have been lost and it is too late. So please get
involved before it is too late.
