LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
Lawmakers in Indiana need to “loosen their grip” on the Marketplace
Columbus, Ind – Libertarians made cold beer a hot topic at the Ricker’s Gas Station Convenience Store Sunday afternoon. Indiana Laws have been restrictive with alcohol sales on Sundays in contrast to a recent poll being published that around 71% of Hoosiers support expanded cold beer sales and 65% favor Sunday carry-out sales.
Rodney Benker, Vice-Chair of the Libertarian Party in Indiana, told FOX 59 in their report of the drink-in, “They need to loosen their grip. It is time to allow fair and safe competition in the marketplace.”
It was an overall success as Libertarian Party members from several counties attended to support the cause. One anonymous local member mentioned to have made 65 new contacts over the weekend. It was a great opportunity to support a wonderful business wanting to provide many services while being able to discuss the importance of the Free-Market at the same time.
The Libertarian Party of Bartholomew County provided live video of Jay Ricker, Chairman of Ricker’s Oil Company, addressing those in attendance before leaving the event.
