MatCatastrophe, the journalism sudo-name fits well. This piece really is a catastrophe.
How many members of the North Charleston City Council are Libertarians? How many members of the North Charleston City Council voted yea or nay and what are the political parties that they are affiliated with?
This is like saying that every Republican agrees with more senseless prolonged war in the Middle East, and every Democrat agrees with the NDAA and the ability to indefinitely detain American citizens without due process. It is wrong to generalize and lump peoples in to one mindset no matter what party they prescribe to.
I was a smoker for ten years and I applauded the smoking ban in the City of Charleston, and at the time still smoked.
From most Libertarians that I have talked with (which is the party I mostly ascribe to), it's not about local Governments passing legislation, especially when it is for the betterment of peoples health, it is the Federal Government and it's over-reaching position within our country.
This article gets a thumbs down!
