MA 4pm driving ban anti-liberty?Submitted by TwelveOhOne on Fri, 02/08/2013 - 17:08
The governor of MA has instituted a driving ban after 4 pm today. My stance on this is it is anti-liberty. A state should not have the ability to restrict travel of its citizens.
The news (Fox) is discussing fines and jail time, while showing Revere Beach and the oddity that nobody is there to watch the storm.
An argument for it is if they don't do it, businesses will force their employees to come in. But what business would want to risk their employees' lives? Before the governor made this unconstitutional proclamation, my CEO told us all to stay home.
