The government does not have the right to invade private property rights and force its will on the private businesses of our great state. The smoking ban is not about people’s health. It’s about who decides what you can and can not do on your own private property!
Not only is this an extreme violation of your private property rights it is extremely damaging to the economy because it drives some people to stay home instead of go out. The people who wanted the ban have not increased their traffic to these bars to make up for lost business. As a result many bars around the state are going out of business.
A truly free society allows diversity of choice, diversity of lifestyle and opinion. The greater threat to health, to liberty and happiness is a government that knows no bounds. There can be no denying that the smoking ban is a step in the direction of tyranny. Not only that, but the ban diverts law enforcement resources away from serious crimes, like rape, robbery and murder.
