Free choice is not the same as getting to do whatever you damn well please!

Interesting comment that keeps coming up in the global warming debate:

Sen. Jerome Delvin, R-Richland, the Senate Republican’s point person on global warming, says he’s against any attempt to push people out of their cars.

“Their goal goes back to taking our choices away as consumers and forcing what they perceive as the way things ought to run and work in our society,” he said.

I agree that we should not take away free choice, if someone wants to drive 60 miles each way to work let them.  But, I’m not going to pay for it.  I want my tax money to pay for the greater good, not the longer, farther, bigger good.
