Washington State Votes to Privatize Liquor SalesSubmitted by pawnstorm12 on Wed, 11/09/2011 - 05:08
In a big-government defying move, the good voters of Washington State (including me), voted to take liquor sales out of the hands of the state.
For decades, only state-sponsored liquor stores could sell hard liquor.
Beer and wine can be bought anywhere.
Finally the state has been taken out of the liquor distribution business.
The state's only job should be to uphold liquor laws - not distribute it.
This will put several hundred state employees out of work, but I'll bet the private sector will need to employ a lot more than the number of those who lose their jobs at the state level.
