    Agree. I wouldn't vote to support a ban but ironically, I enjoy the ban. Now I can visit a tavern after work or whatever without having to get my jacket to a dry cleaner ASAFP afterwards.

    In terms of the results, I do like going into bars without smoke. I don't smoke and I don't like the way it smells or clings to my cloths. It was inconvenient. But I don't think, still do not think, that I can press my inconvenience upon the rights of others to force them into my way. The ends do not always justify the means.

    No, this was a case of doing what the majority desired.

    I agree with you 100%! I'm just admitting my guilty pleasure in the ban. I would absolutely vote against the ban if I was given the opportunity.

    You can hang your hat on "majority rule" on this one specific issue but the government has big time dollars invested in harassing cigarette smokers.

    The majority does indeed like oppressing the minority. Thanks for reminding me.

    Not only that, but the majority should not always rule. They can rule so long as they remain within the rights and liberties of the minority. But once they cross that line, they should no longer be given what they want. It's a good example of why pure democracy is a bad idea.
