Let the free market decide which restaurants keep their liquor license

November 09, 2011

There would be little reason for the existence of a liquor lobby (or any other lobby for that matter) if it weren't for the countless unnecessary laws, rules and regulations emanating from the over-inflated egos of petty bureaucrats.

Why can't we simply let every restaurant that wants a liquor license have one — for a reasonable fee — until it proves itself unworthy of the privilege?

If only we let them, competition and the free market would weed out the bad apples.
