Is buying booze a constitutionally protected right?

There is no federal constitutional right to vote either.

You ever take a gander at the 14th Amendment?

Ever notice there is a pretty significant percentage of people who talk about the US Constitution quite a bit and know very little about what's in it?

You mean a case that the Supreme Court said is to NEVER be used for precedent?

Ever hear of the 19th amendment?

Only says you cant deny a vote on the basis of sex.

You do know that your state legislature at any moment could take away your ability to vote for president?

Try again f, that still does not grant any rights only prohibits the denial of the ability to vote under certain circumstances.

Their right to buy it certainly is.  And to buy it they may be forced to show ID.  But as usual, you have entirely missed the point.  ID's are ubiquitous.  What's the problem?

You are the type of nimrod who thinks just because the constitution doesn't say anything explicitly, it isn't in there.  Or because there are exceptions, the general rule is invalidated.

Look at Harper v Virginia State Board which declared poll taxes unconstitutional.  In addition to the 14th, 19th, and 24th amendments which explicitly prohibit denial of a vote on specific grounds.

Under what basis can my state legislature take away my vote?  If it is upon a general ground there is a good liklihood that it will be declared unconstitutional under the citations that I just outlined above.  If it is on a personal ground, I'll probably have a pretty knock out due process claim.

1. Please provide a citation that outlines where the US constitution guarentees the right to purchase booze.

2. The problem is that in your opinion, or in your life IDs are ubiquitous.  That isn't the case for every us citizen.  This is the weakest argument possible.  The I have an ID so everyone should be forced to show their ID.

3. You appear to be a conservative leaning person, which would lead me to think you are against state regulations.  Why are you in favor of imposing more regulations upon the citizerny?

1.  Interstate Commerce Clause
2.  They are and there is no reason to believe that this is a barrier to anything
3.  As a Conservative, I believe in State's Rights.
