If everybody in this country quit smoking cigarettes today, the government tills would really shrink. They are the ones playing with fire—where would they make up all the tax money that smokers bring in?

Alcohol but they wouldn't attempt to demonize it as they did with tobacco.......

Alcohol has destroyed more lives, more families than tobacco could ever do in a thousand years but it's left alone because too many people enjoy it.

Believe me, they have so many ideas on how to rape the populace it would make your head spin.

Tax more on sugar, fast foods, liquor, walking, talking, sh!tting, shaving, you name it.
