I don’t know about you, but with the now-ubiquitous attempts to deprive us of our natural rights to assemble, access the Internet (or tax it – a vote TODAY! Call D.C.!), speak freely, worship (or choose not to), keep the constabulary from our homes without benefit of warrant, eat unhealthy food and of course, deprive us of the right to keep and bear arms, there seems to be more and more of a movement on the part of the Fourth Estate to POLL US with these concerns:
- Should we ban (insert offensive machine here)?
- Should we prohibit (insert offensive content) from the Internet?
- Should the government monitor all our Internet accesses and emails?
- Should free enterprise and marketplace be disallowed with regard to commerce in firearms?
I’m sick of seeing such polls. I don’t care if the entire population of New York votes en masse to prohibit me from having a soft drink larger than 16 oz., or a firearm magazine greater then 7 round capacity, or a poll in USA Today (the primary coloring book of newspapers) supports such a vote.
My rights are my individual rights. Period. Guaranteed. And no attempt at ‘democracy’ (tyranny of the majority) will convince me otherwise.
Take your polls elsewhere, about other things. Like a preference for apple or cherry pie.
