Why it would be the lesser evil if Randolph County were a wet county

To start with, drinkers are going to drink if they have to go out of the county to get their beverages. It's also more likely they will get impatient and have a drink coming home if they have to drive miles back home. If their house is just less than 2 miles, they'll be more likely to get home with their beverages before drinking. I believe this won't increase the amount of drinkers, liquor stores will create jobs and we'll keep more revenue in the county. Again, you can't stop the drinkers. The national government would have to pass prohibition to even make them feel like it's not worth the effort. You know prohibition won't pass.

I'm sure if everyone who responsibly drinks a beer now and then voted on a wet county bill, we'd get it passed easily. Let them whine. The Catholics would love it, too. We have a lot of Catholics in this county.

I've got a good idea. We could create a petition for a bill making the entire state wet. It would be signed like crazy. We could use the same processes the people used for the marijuana bill that made it on the ballot but didn't pass.
