Government needs to educate, not limit

“My country tis of thee, SWEET land of LIBERTY?” Or is it? McDonald’s, Whataburger, Wendy’s, and other fast-food chains as well as other places that sell prepared food may not be able to sell sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces.

The government is taking it upon themselves to make even the simple decisions that we as Americans have of how much and of what we wish to consume a major issue. “Fundamentally, I don’t think we need the government to protect us from ourselves,” said Justin Wilson of the Center of Consumer Freedom (The New York Times: Up Front). This is only taking place in New York City as of now, but how long will it take before it reaches us here in Texas?

Obesity is a nationwide issue, but one that we must each take part in the blame individually. We need to make the decision of how much and to what extent we consume sugary products. The government is headed in the right direction in wanting the nation to take a look at obesity, but coming on a little too strong with making decisions for us.

Maybe what they should be doing is finding a way to educate the nation in the causes of obesity and how we can each take part in making the right decisions as far as our diets are concerned. All in all, obesity is taking over, and we need to find a reasonable way to take control and get our nation back in shape.
