"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance.
It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes
beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control
a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things
that are not crimes.
A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon
which our government was founded."
Abraham Lincoln (1809-65), U.S. President
Speech, 18 Dec. 1840,
Illinois House of Representatives
