Funny seeing how backwards people still are in North Georgia by voting down Sunday alcohol sales. If you don't want to drink on Sunday, don't. But don't make others not have that option. That isn't freedom.

Funny seeing the twisted reality that you live in crtsports. Freedom can probably best be described as the ability for any member of society to voice their opinion through a vote. The sale of alcohol on Sunday was put to a vote and was put down. Both sides had the opportunity to be represented equally so what isn't free about that? In this case or any other case it it very shallow to say the least that freedom isn't involved just because you represent the minority of the vote. Majority rules, that's freedom.

Sunday alcohol sales shouldn't even by up for a vote. It should be allowed. It only exists for religious reasons, and there should be NO religion in the laws. I saw numerous churches with signs about how to vote on Sunday alcohol sales. Every church that had a sign up about something to be voted for should lose their tax exempt status.
