Civil Liberties

From the Daily Wipe, we get this little vignette. It seems that City Coucilman Myron Lawson wants to ban smoking in privately owned vehicles.

Coucilman Lawson isn't interested that private vehicles are just that.... private, and that this is just an extension of the power of the government over people. The most telling quote comes when he admits that he is against civil liberties.
"I'm about to have all the civil liberties people on me," Lawson said. "I don't care."

Never mind that Lawson took an oath when he was sworn in as City Councilman to uphold the constitution. He's not interested in that. I wounder if his constituents know they are represented by a man who admits openly that he is against civil liberties?
