roadbikeRob saidWhy 21But if you are 18 or older, it is strictly your own personal business if you want to poison your body with nicotine. It is none of government's damned business.
So is suicide is one's own personal business...So, does it mean that one can end their life if they want to?
If you try to stop a person who is about to commit suicide and if that person replies "It's none of your business...it's my life and I'll end when I want to" will you let him/her die or will you continue persuading the person to stop? what if that person is one of your close friends or family?
The govt. is just doing the same as what you would do to a person who is about to commit suicide.
If you are old enough to fight in a war, to hold down a fulltime job, go to college, get your own place of residence than dammit all you are old enough to smoke and you are old enough to drink. Some of these facist control freak politicians that keep pushing for the legally arbitrary age of 21 need to be permanently kicked out of office. The government is getting totally out of control and becoming too dictatorial. America is a land of free choice, not a land of facist dictatorship. This is ridiculous.
Yes, govt. is out of control...but still you can appreciate good things that can benefit everyone.
and another thing is, your explanation is not appealing to me. It means to me like, just because I achieve something in life, I have a right to do or I deserve something. But that's not morally right.
If I work hard and earned a million dollars, I can do what I like...but which is more appealing to you...buying an expensive car with that money to satisfy my desires or using it for greater good like donating to an orphanage or animal safety or planting trees, etc. whatever ?
