That being said, there are two government practices that I have not met opposition for. I'd like to see if I can find any via the world wide web, or if any of my friends are able to argue the other side.
1. Y'all know that I believe in a welfare system. I know that some things just can't be helped and sometimes people just need a little pick me up. I believe the current welfare system is... well, abused isn't even the word, but I believe it is a necessary evil. So why is it, if most working people have to randomly submit to drug tests, why is a drug test not required for every welfare recipient? This is an issue that seems to grate everyone's nerves, and mine especially, as a friend of the family was on welfare for dozens of years and smoked weed like the very life of her children depended on it. I was working minimum wage and could barely afford food, but she hasn't held a steady job in... ever and can afford mad ganj.
2. Drinking age - 21. Required age for enlisting in the armed forces - 18 (17 in some cases). Really? A 20-year-old coming home from Kuwait can't walk into a bar and order a beer with his head held high? I also find it absurd that the government trusted me to find my life partner at the age of 20, but I wasn't responsible enough to (legally) have a drink with my husband for nearly 5 more months.
So, who believes that welfare recipients shouldn't ever be submitted to drug tests and that a soldier isn't responsible enough to have a beer?
