The government has done what with this healthy eating thing? Some public service announcements? Changed the food pyramid to a plate?
The fact that people support the war on drugs but think that this eating healthy thing is some extreme government assault on individual liberties is a total joke. There's no reasoning behind it other than "oogy boogy democrats baddd"
Thanks for clearing it up for everyone.
The difference is Nancy Reagan's campaign was part of an ACTUAL, really existing government program designed to dictate to adults what they can and cannot put in their bodies using the police force.
Michelle Obama's healthy lifestyle is part of a made-up, imaginary narrative about the big bad government telling you what to do.
If you really cared about the government telling adults what they can do with their bodies, then you'd oppose the war on drugs. Otherwise, it's just partisan cheerleading and nothing more.
Kids should be educated about healthy lifestyles and nutrition, just like they should be educated about the risks of drug use. The parents are perfectly able to educate children about drug use, so why don't you oppose "just say no" and DARE overstepping parental authority?
