14. I believe in the personal freedom to choose for one's self

The problem I have is that the laws in each state overlap, meaning, each state has some laws you like and some laws you disagree with. So, what do you do, pick the least offensive state?
(Then bringing in Dragon's original arguement that you can't pick up and move to the state that you want because you can't get a job with equal pay. One way is to go to college in the state you want to live in and start your career there.)

I believe that either fewer laws need to be written that restrict people's freedom to choose their own lifestyle. When people get to say thet "you" can't live the life you want because "my beliefs" don't allow it - I think that's wrong. My belief is that pro-choice is best way to design laws. You get to choose your life and I get to choose mine.

What's the difference between one group saying the rest of our society needs to follow their rules and a dictatorship. We need to allow for differing beliefs under the law.
