Thank you for the rant. "There is much evidence that smoking cigarettes is beneficial to you health" with much less risk than the Big Pharma alternatives.

If they are worried about "conflict of interest", then they should truly be concerned about people who get the majority of their income from the government being allowed to vote.

Ever since this man started running, every plan or idea to stop him has been shot down as being detrimental to the Republican party. So how deep into the crapper does he take this country before he is stopped? And do you really think there is going to be drastic changes with different people in power? It's just like all my life I've been preached to that we need to vote for the lesser of two evils which has just resulted in more evil.

I agree. We started to get into trouble when someone declared that voting is a right. Anyone who receives more than 50% of their income from government should not be allowed to vote, excluding military but including contractors and their employees.

I refer to them as "Zoo People". Those who envision living in a zoo with a benevolent keeper and caretakers versus those of us who wish to roam the open range (which even PETA says is more humane).

I DON"T CARE!! The only argument is and should be about our individual rights as our highest value. Stop falling into the trap of arguing with liberals that it's all about the pocket-book and safety. And do you really think you are going to convince the 50% of the population that gets a government check that they would be better off without it? Until you can convince the people that our liberty is more valuable, I feel we are doomed.

In the Milgram experiments ( Obedience to authority) there was no fear involved. All participants were volunteers that could quit at any time with no repercussions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milgram_experiment

The horrendous evils in the world are not carried out by tyrants but by millions of normally good people "just doing their job". "Ordinary people, simply doing their jobs, and without any particular hostility on their part, can become agents in a terrible destructive process. Moreover, even when the destructive effects of their work become patently clear, and they are asked to carry out actions incompatible with fundamental standards of morality, relatively few people have the resources needed to resist authority." — Stanley Milgram (Obedience to Authority) I recommend everyone read and understand this: http://www.hitler.org/writings/Mein_Kampf/mkv1ch06.html
Smoking is the only issue that has more junk science associated with it than global warming. Smoking doesn't cause any disease. It might increase your risk. Studies show that people will believe anything if you put "studies show" in front of it. When someone says “studies show”, the first words out of your mouth should be “show me the studies”. Do some research on risk verses benefits and you will learn that smoking is closer to a miracle drug than aspirin. That’s why people smoke. You can follow all the big anti-smoking money right back to the big drug companies.
