Ron Paul recently stated we should have the right to drink raw, whole milk. Some have mocked him for it. But his point is that government, and especially the federal government stomps on our personal liberties way too much.
Here is an example from CATO, about a case where a man was mowing his lawn in an urban community. Cops stopped to check him out, and became aggressive. They hit him, giving him a black eye, and charging him with two counts of assault on a police officer. Later, the judge chastised the police officers for trampling on basic rights of a man that was just minding his own business.
We now have the feds passing laws allowing American citizens to be stopped, imprisoned, and even killed in some instances, without proper due process of law, all in the name of the war on terrorism. Guess what? The war on drugs did not work, and the over-active actions of a war on terrorism will only eliminate more of the rights endowed upon us by our Creator.
When the government gets so far into our lives that they harass people for drinking milk or mowing a lawn, it is time to knock that government back down to an appropriate size.
