Not My President
I'm curious - do those who promote the right of owners in businesses to discriminate and choose who they'll accept as customers differentiate between a business where an owner is simply selling a product as opposed to one where the owner is selling him/herself? Is there a difference in your minds between a coffee shop owner selling coffee and muffins and a catering service preparing and serving food at an event?
The reason I ask is because I see a large difference and if we're talking strictly about the sale of a product "off the self" then I would say that no discrimination of any kind should ever be allowed. However, if we are talking about the sale of oneself - in effect, contracting the owner as an individual to perform a particular task unique to the particular customer, then I would personally be more receptive to declining the contract. But still I would personally be opposed to being allowed to decline the contract based on the client's person rather than on the terms of the contract.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
I think it's wrong when it rains when I planned on doing something outdoors that required nice weather, but it rains anyway. That's how the weather works.
And in a constitutional democracy, you can get the govt to do anything, but only if you get enough people to agree with you. That's how our govt works.
And if you think that people should not be able to have the govt they want to have, but only be allowed to have the govt you think they should be allowed to have, then you are just as coercive and dismissive of "liberty" as anyone else.
