Outlawing Common Sense

Lemonade stands, restrictions on restaurants, raw milk bans, and rare meat: these are just some of the choices that the government wants to take away from the American consumer. Common sense tells us that people can make their own food decisions. They can decide for themselves if they want to purchase a cup of lemonade from a child’s stand. They can take the risk to eat a hamburger cooked the right way. And they can order a perfectly healthy meal for their children at fast food restaurants… or they can choose to say no to their children’s demands for less healthy food. Americans simply don’t need a nanny state to help them choose the food that’s best for them and their families.
