Stronger liquor points

January 29, 2013 Letters to the Editor

If Gov. Tom Corbett actually was sending strong signals to end the state’s socialist liquor store monopoly, he would not make the case based on wonkish arguments.

The state’s coercive liquor monopoly is a complete perversion of the function of government and, as such, should be dismantled. By what right does the state dictate how many cans of beer can be sold in what types of stores?

It is the philosophy of statism, in which the individual rights of citizens are usurped by an all-powerful government that created this corruption-laden, rights-destroying system, and it is only the philosophy of capitalism that can annihilate it entirely.
