Liberty vs. Leviathan

Chronicling Liberty's battle against Leviathan

Declining property rights

Property rights and property owners are under assault once again.  And the assault weapon is the law.  The Michigan House this week voted 73 – 31 to prohibit business owners (with some regulated exceptions) from allowing smokers in their establishments.  Restaurants and bars are not included in the exceptions.  Seventeen of the 73 were Republicans, the limited government [sic] party.  Included in the seventeen was my own representative, Marty Knollenberg, who on his website tells voters, “If you know of a regulation that interferes with your life or your business, my office will investigate it and look at logical ways to reform it.

Maybe the first step to reform would be to refrain from adding more laws that restrict an owner’s right to make his own decisions about his property and business.

    LOL @ you representative’s website quote about regulations. This type of legislation would best be addressed at the local level rather than the state or federal level.
