You're correct, we would choose what to eat and what not to eat. The difference is that businesses can't force you to eat their food, so they'd better not poison it or they will lose their business. Whereas, the Government is force, and does force all of us to eat only what they say we can eat. This is why it is now illegal to drink raw milk.
The individual who refuses to defend his rights when called by his Government, deserves to be a slave, and must be punished as an enemy of his country and friend to her foe. - Andrew Jackson
