Liquor & free enterprise

Daily Photo Galleries

Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

The framework for private liquor sales is within the very fiber of the American promise — free enterprise.

Here's the deal: Anyone with a simple retail business license can buy liquor in bulk and sell it at retail for whatever price the market will bear. No special deals for beer distributors. No more special deal for state employees. No big fees for licenses, no buddy-buddy arrangements. Just straight business. Sell to minors, go to jail. The market will determine which stores will prosper and which will not.

Let's stop the delays, let's stop the lies and let's stop protecting the sacred cows. Free enterprise works to serve the public.

Every politician clings to the flag and proclaims his love and respect for it. OK. Start living it, today.
