In Pittsburgh Pennsylvania they were trying to pass a smoking ban in all public places and privately own businesses. This is proof that big government is going beyond it’s propose. If this was allowed to pass, that would mean the government would be able to tell business owners how to run there business. If that seems ok to you then you ARE NOT some one who values your freedoms.
If everyone would just look around they would see that Capitalism (Free Market) is taking care of the situation for us and we have no need for government to step it. The businesses (bars and pubs) in the area are now offering smoke free nights and some also offer rooms that are smoke free. So if you don’t want to be around second hand smoke you have a choice. And if that is still not enough for you, open your own smoke free bar.
The main reason some of these options were not offerd sooner was the people didn’t let the businesses know that there was demand for smoke free nights and/or accommodations. So before you go crying to big government, try doing something yourself. Ask your favorite bar to try having a smoke free night. If you get enough people behind you no business will say no.
In free economy the customers rules!
