It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

this is exactly what the liberals have done with anything they don't like. consider tobacco.

for centuries, it was a sign of opulence and power. it was a habit that only the wealthy could afford. this country was founded and kept alive by it. remember the cash crops that kept the colonies alive and saved them when they were so poor, they were eating their shoes?

but, in my eyes, in an effort to demonise this product and all it represented, the libs killed it slowly over time. first they started raising questions on the health aspects of it. then they started throwing the "your rights end where my begin" argument and started controlling where the substances were imbibed. then, they started killing it, state by state, with things like the vinyl acetate fire standard compliance rings that made a good bit of the smokers sick instantly.

now, the industry is in it's death throes, being regulated and taxed heavily on the state level. it's already been killed in the minds of the general population. look at how many ex-smokers are even on this board that are proud of quitting.

now that healthcare is nationalised, a smoker, on public health insurance, is a public cost that is very real. it's only a matter of time before it's completely illegal.

btw, the tactic of switching to easily controlled and bought local and state governments is one the liberals used on tobacco too with respect to public space bans and the fsc compliance.

now, imagine if that's how we feel about guns in a couple of years.

I'm surprised they haven't regulated that packs be designed to only hold 10 rounds...I mean cigarettes!

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
Paying for welfare is slavery.
