    Washinton State recently voted to privatize liquor sales and get the state out of the liquor buisness.

    Results?

    A bottle of your favorite hooch costs 50% more.

    Availability?... Not so much. State used to stock EVERYTHING.

    Private sellers? They only stock the fast movers.

    Thanks to you assholes that think privatizing is better.

    Did I mention how much I hate you people?

    Then by all means, start your own liquor store. With your superior intellect and plan to sell products that sit on the shelf, I'm sure you'll be a smashing success.

    Silly move by the State.

    In NH all the liquor stores are run by the State.

    Loads of revenue every year.

    Dumb move by Washington State and it sounds like a real kick in the teeth for booze buyers.

    Your link makes NO mention of stocks of liquor declining at private retailers. Do you have another link or proof you'd like to provide?

    every time we privatize things will increase in price.

    It means profit has to be added to the price.

    Its common fucking sense

    Stupid idea to have the state running any kind of monopoly.

    In every state I've been to where the state runs the racket, they both take the profit then turn around and nail you for sales tax.....And the selection in places like Utah sucks ass.

    Half of your cost for a bottle of booze is tax, Mensa candidate.

    If you really want lower prices, you want the gubmint out of it alltogether.
