Here’s NY Gov. David Paterson trying to ram through a tax on soft drinks by saying it’s “for the children.” Do Democrats have any other move in their playbook? What ever happened to offering evidence and the making of a case? Is everything they propose now so weak that they can defend it only with maudlin appeals? Do they have any respect at all anymore for the autonomy of the individual, self-control, and keeping one’s nose out of other people’s business?
Ya know, a large part of freedom is tolerating other people’s choices, even when you don’t like those choices. If libs can’t even abide people’s choice to drink soda pop, well, they’ve pretty much lost touch with why the nation was founded in the first place.
