Live the way you want to. Just don’t hurt me. Live the way you want to. Let’s be free. – The Grouch

January 16, 1919 the 18th amendment was added to the Constitution. It outlawed the manufacture, buying, selling, import or export of alcohol in, into, or out of, the land of the free, The United States of America. It wasn’t illegal to drink it, but if you wanted it; from where would you get it?

Many unattractive women withheld sex from their husbands, coercing them to vote for prohibition. Women’s suffrage was a year away.

It worked for 14 years

Lucky for you alcohol loving readers; the 18th amendment was repealed in 1933. Dire luck for you sinful, hedonistic heathens; the Prohibition Party is alive and well. The party is against gun control, public sector unions, Obamacare, illegal aliens, gay marriage, federal control of education, gambling, pornography, drugs, tobacco, and of course – alcohol.The_Drunkard's_Progress_-_Color

Sounds good, but I don’t believe the Government should be involved in some moral issues.

I long for a Conservative/Libertarian Utopia. I agree with the Prohibition Party’s views, but I fear they would outlaw some things that should be left to the States and Individuals to decide for themselves. 579005_344529788978984_727918538_n

The Government has no business forcing us to be good people.

And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them. – Luke 9:5

Why do we ban substances? 399233_201664429958600_439800389_n

And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. – Genesis 1:12

If an adult cannot decide for himself, what substances he will put on or inside his own body; can he truly be considered free?

Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand: There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man. If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. – Mark 7:14-16

Why don’t we ban some things that really matter; the things that really do hurt innocent people? 604031_465949183443323_2020353357_n 67635_378356135585606_975750502_n 16678_436296599753523_293993308_n 598500_346711192094177_1715473303_n 419772_312647508772757_1452513110_n gun free zone 61201_346744398757523_1516536003_n 68479_532675816761338_1864923120_n 460152_454323544602746_474123894_o 399286_10151256026763459_1879985305_n 189662_10151237279943459_944858537_n 424804_470175579687350_1477829898_n 532233_10151245739413459_380612311_n

It almost doesn't matter who you vote for.

Do not murder your children because of poverty

While you are celebrating the anniversary of the repeal of prohibition today; don’t forget that we still can’t use cash in Louisiana, raw milk and cheese are illegal, chickens are illegal in Phoenix, gardens are illegal in Tulsa, the U.N. is working on controlling the internets, confiscating our guns, and taxing the very air we breathe. Many schools won’t allow you to pack your children’s lunches, and many states disallow giving birth to children at home.

It’s a good thing alcohol is legal because thinking about all this tyranny could drive a man to drink.
