    This should be the day when every governmental body, from the smallest town council to the mighty federal government, is required to identify & repeal at least one (or maybe 1% of) useless/harmful law from it’s books.

    Governments could find the laws themselves, or (even better) ask the effected citizenry to suggest & vote on the laws during the year.Report

    Prohibition by Frank P. Adams:

    Prohibition is an awful flop.
    We like it.
    It can’t stop what it’s meant to stop.
    We like it.
    It’s left a trail of graft and slime,
    It won’t prohibit worth a dime,
    It’s filled our land with vice and crime.
    Nevertheless, we’re for it.Report

    The actual repeal of Prohibition wasn’t that big of a celebration. The photos of happy drinkers that are used to show the end of Prohibition are actually celebrating a law that allowed the drinking of beer and light wines after FDR was inaugerating.

    The Drys attempted to defeat the beer law but were silenced by all the Wets in Congress chanting “Vote, vote, vote. We want beer.” Best end of debate in Congress ever.Report

    Indeed it would be a new birth of freedom if all the “No shooting sperm whales from your Conestoga on Sunday in Nebraska” type laws were repealed.Report
