Help with Letter to the Newspaper!Submitted by rudys_fire on Fri, 07/19/2013 - 22:41
Hello, my name is Mike and I'm a former State House candidate in North Dakota from 2012.
Nowadays, I still stay involved, haven't given up the fight, as none of us should... One of the things I like to do is vent out to the local newspaper any time the collectivists dictate their wills on all of us.
I need your help! I plan on writing an op-ed on a local issue. Namely, our town (home of University of North Dakota) is a college town that... likes to drink (surprise!). So now, college and government officials got together and want to look at impacting the culture by legislation.
Smoking anywhere by and in public buildings is already banned, now they want to crack down on alcohol.
This is the letter I'm responding to - http://www.grandforksherald.com/event/article/id/268738/
Can you guys give me some tips and ideas on how to best represent individual freedom on this matter, how the concept of individual responsibility means nothing to our... "authorities"?
Please let me know, I'd love to hear your thoughts and we can craft a laser-guided awesome answer, together!
