I recently quit smoking. I’m not very happy about it. Our rino governor tacked a dollar a pack on all tobacco. I will not pay this tax. It is taxation without representation. The thing that really gets me is that they  keep saying they will not raise taxes on the poor. Who do they think smokes? In the last month in this state tobacco taxes have gone up almost two dollars. The majority of the people who smoke are poor and they will continue to smoke. They have raised taxes on the poor two dollars a day. 730 dollars a year out of a twenty thousand dollar a year income.

I can quit at will, these people can’t. They are addicted.  This is wrong. And for those of you out there saying they need it for their own good, congress is working on a fat tax for your good. And a sugar tax, a tax for breathing and a flatulence tax. You elected these people. Is this what you wanted? This country has moved so far to the left that the “conservatives” make FDR look like a staunch Republican. that’s why when you go to vote there is no choice. They are all the same. What is the least of the evils? They are all so far left that the Republican party is trying to get along with the Democrats. The Republican party is supposed to vehemently oppose the Democrat party not try to cross the isle.

I urge you to contact your representatives and let them know how you feel. At the time I thought Gingerich and the boys were lame, who would have thought I would be nostalgic for the contract with America.
