Students for Liberty push back against government overreach with “Nanny State Store”

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if the government controlled absolutely everything in our lives?

The government is involved in more of our decision making than you might realize when, for example, they impose protectionist measures on trade which then limit consumer choice.

Another example of the government trying to make choices for us comes in the form of warning labels on products.

Earlier this week, I spoke with David Clement at the Nanny State Store run by Students For Liberty. This is a store where goods like chips, pop and chocolate bars are covered in labels to give people an idea of what it would be like if the government mandated putting a label on all things it deemed bad for us.

David’s message? Nobody needs the government holding their hand in order to make choices.

Don’t forget we should put a warning on the evil, lying, left winged MSM before you watch any of their so-called news. Everytime these so-called journalists spews about a news story, it’s slanted towards their left-winged agenda. Ctv and welfare cbc is really bad and global is no different. Thank goodness I don’t listen to them much at all anymore, they can’t even get the weather right.

The centrally planned Nanny State economy looks like Venezuela. The store shelves would be empty.

Interesting concept to spread the gospel of civil liberty.

As long as we’re putting warning labels on “dangerous things” we should mandate warning labels on ALL government employees, publications, property and edicts – warning people that government is hazardous to their health as it has killed 60 billion of us in its wars, genocides and political pogroms in the last century.
