Has anyone here decided that he is fed up with liberal, do-gooder politicians who want to control everyone's lives and behavior, and would dearly love to even ban smoking in our own homes. I used to a "split ticket" conservative, who would cross over almost every election, but I have had it with control freaks. Mayor Bloomberg banning smoking on golf courses; in the open and putting warning labels on salt shakers; making restaurants put calories on menus. The nanny state is getting out of hand. We are slowly loosing our freedoms. By the way, I am an only occasional smoker, so the bans don't effect me very much, but I am sick and tired of politicians who get off controlling our lives. I am now a Libertarian. Ich habe genug!
