First they are going against the constitution That says no tax between states.
Now the bootleggers will move in just like Canada ,new york.The bootleggers are funding the terrorists Its been in the news.Bans promote,hate,loss of jobs,loss of business And you IDIOTS that support the bans are helping the government take away every ones rights,yours too.
With the laws Bush has in place he becomes a dictator with the next terrorist attack.Why do you think he sent our border guards over seas and left out borders open.This also has been in the news.You IDIOTS need get off the fluoride.
