It's funny how libs tout personal freedom and shite but if they carried their statist bull shite philosophy to its logical conclusion the central government would restrict all sorts of behaviors
This is a valid and important point. The liberal philosophy of "federal investment in the populace", namely in healthcare, education, housing etc, opens the door for restriction of liberty. Once the government invests in you, it can control you in the name of "saving money". We see this today with the New York soda ban. Bloomberg came up with this law because he said it would save the city money on healthcare in the future.
Hayek observed this as well. From The Road to Serfdom
: socialism puts governments in a position where to support themselves they are obliged to be oppressive and tyrannical.
