Left vs. Right Doesn't Work With Fluoride
I've been following the fluoridation debate down in Sonoma County. The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors seems hell bent on spending millions to fluoridate the county water system. This, despite what seems to be a majority opposed to it. At least that's the impression I get from reading comments to news articles.
I found it interesting to see some regular commentators to the Press- Democrat I've considered the small government conservatives come out supporting fluoridation- my individual choice argument falling on deaf ears. What I deem the normally big government progressive types, who you'd think would support any public health measure, strongly oppose it.
Fluoridation makes for some interesting political bedfellows. More than anything shows the political spectrum shouldn't be confined to a Left vs. Right plane. The Nolan Chart makes more sense than just limiting ourselves to Left or Right.
