On New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s comment that the purpose of government is to improve the health and longevity of its citizens…
Science has been politicized, and it’s dominated by people on the left, and Doomberg’s a leftist, and so, whatever they say is unchallengeable. It’s always true. Okay so he says “If government’s purpose isn’t to improve the health and longevity of its citizens, I don’t know what its purpose is. We certainly have an obligation to tell them..” Okay tell us. Tell us, fine. But don’t IMPOSE on us. If you want to tell us that large sugary drinks are dangerous, let us make the decision. If you want to tell us that big vats of popcorn you think are unhealthy – fine! Let us make the decision. Put a label on it if you want to! You know, put a picture of a clogged artery on the popcorn bowl – we don’t care. Just let us buy it if we want it… Folks – this is classic liberalism. This is classic statism. This is right in front of our eyes the vast, rapid erosion of personal liberty and freedom. Now you might think this is a minor thing, but these things never stop. Once they start, they never are satisfied.
