I am informed on the matter and considered the issues and my priorities are:

  1. What we need most is to keep big brother out of our business in this matter.

  2. What we need most is to promote an attitude of the need for change in the matter.

  3. Makes no difference, this isn’t the government’s business to meddle in the affairs of its people!

    Concerning addressing issues of supply and demand in our society which has led to an out-of-control extremely unhealthful epidemic of obesity which threatens our society’s productivity, health system, economics and general wellbeing and the fact that a law is being passed to regulate supply how would you vote?

    Before answering, are not similar laws passed to regulate the use of tobacco products including: sin taxes, age restrictions, advertising, warning labels, un-researched additives added to prevent fires, restrictions on college campuses and public places including parking lots, and multiple other campaigns exist to accelerate agendas to combat this un-healthful habit?

    We make laws against recreational drugs and all kinds of other substances because they are harmful. Why should un-healthful food be an exception?

    Please read the article and become informed of the need to get on board with an agenda to “change the tide” in the rising supply and demand that are plaguing our choices of food and have little to no restrictions in place to combat this un-healthful epidemic before placing your vote on which ethics are more important to you. The author asks the all -important question about getting on track to combat rising obesity: Can we share a taste for change?

    Or, the Government could just stop subsidizing junk food.
