No matter how disparaging the drawing depicts the three commissioners, no matter how they were belittled in the cartoon or the article, I still believe they had the "financial health" as well as the welfare of the citizens of Newton County in mind. Consider this fact from Mothers Against Drunk Driving: "In the year 2000, Alcohol-related crashes in the United States cost the public $51.1 billion in monetary costs." Do the math. Do you really think "tax money" is a good argument for legalizing alcoholic drink like this? Just admit the facts. You are the one who wants to drink. You want it legalized and any excuse you can make sounds good to you. But please, don’t use the "tax revenue" as an argument to push this agenda.
Here is another fact from MADD: "A first time drunk driving offender on average has driven drunk 87 times prior to being arrested."
