Talk about your fear mongering. Our future does not depend on alcohol. It is not what we need to survive

and please realise, this isn't a wet/dry vote. Anyone that has lived here over the last 50 years already knows that. It is a legal/illegal vote. Supporting either regulation or black market.

Repeal NAFTA. Use stimulus money to give to people to use to open up factories and put people back to work. We need production going again in america. and in our state and in our county. start drug testing people that are on welfare. use the money from that to go towards helping others in our community, that are really in need and not abusing it. for starters.

Man, you have a solid grasp of the situation. We lose many dollars each year just on the boater traffic. I've seen the boat owners unload pickup trucks full of beer and wine and put it on their boats. Think of what could be done for the local area with the revenue garnered from the sale of booze. If the people choose not to frequent establishments where alcohol is sold, that's their choice. Just don't take away my freedom of choice.

Burnside didn't do well because its only moist. Most of the people going to Burnside for alcohol are from Somerset. I dont get ehy people are afraid of change. Also seems like more people in somerset obviously want it wet otherwise it would not have passed and why should all the people that voted yes wich is more than the ones that voted no move this is our home just as much as it is yours....

I just bought ahouse in Burnside. I'm thrilled this passed. It's a lot better than stopping in richmond on my way down. I drink, my friends drink. Prohibition did not work, it just created al capone and organized crime. People are going to drink, so the revenue, the tax dollars, the jobs and the progress will help improve somerset and pulaski county in general. The people have spoken. Long live the people
