Yes, they should, and have been doing so for a long time.

Sugar is death. Tax the hell out of it. :D. We already pay for some peoples healthcare, etc, why not be smarter about that.

I was told the "slippery slope" argument was invalid, and the government getting involved in healthcare would not lead them to trying to tell people how they should live.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

It is. It's lazy and means you cannot argue the point being argued.

At what point should the government just replace our bodies with robots, for us?

This right here is the problem with the government being our mommy. It's also why the government shouldn't be involved in healthcare. Conflicting interests.

Rs, Ds, men, women, black, white, Muslim, Christian, etc. are all going to have different ideas about what's bad for you and what isn't. Thus, we're going to wind up with "sin taxes" on fucking everything.

Which was exactly my point. It's fine that a "rational" person would say, "Well everyone knows where the line is." But no, in fact, they all have differing opinions about the line.

"The slippery slope argument is invalid" is exactly what everyone says when they know they're putting us at the top of a slippery slope.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

Remember when alcohol was illegal? And pot was illegal everywhere? remember the slippery slope of banning all those things?

No idea what your point is. Those things had horrible consequences.
