Be a voter!|
um, yeah. no need to restrict the number of liquor licenses, in my opinion. On the other hand, I found myself voting against a constitutional amendment to allow for casinos in Ohio. A) I realized I'm actually against casinos. People gambling against each other? fine. People gambling with machines where the house always comes out ahead in the end? I'm agin it, even if the taxes do support good causes. There are positive, constructive things people could do with their time, that are social and not addictive.
B) that sort of thing really doesn't belong in the state constitution.
Locally we have a measure to allow for the purchase of liquor in the village on Sundays during the same hours as other days of the week. I voted for it. If there had been a measure to allow people to buy liquor 24-7, I'd have voted for that. I know enough people who work the swing shift to find it oddly solar-normative that we restrict the hours when people can purchase alcohol.

If that constitutional amendment is the one my sister told me about, you were entirely right to vote against it. It was written so as to give exclusive rights to one business, which is certainly not something that should be enshrined in the constitution.
