I smoke a pipe and say this to you guys who agree with controlling others by taxation.
You're just like the gun control advocates. There's something you don't agree with, and because you don't like it you think it's OK for government to take oppressive measures. I wonder if you understand the principles of freedom upon which this country was founded?
I don't like to see all of the fat people walking around, and it sure isn't healthy for them. So let's add a few dollars tax to french fries, soft drinks, beer and bacon. Also, I think artificial sweeteners are an abomination. Let's tax them out of existence. Pick-up trucks for personal transportation? Well, they burn too much gas and are bad for the environment. Add $1,000.00 to every pick-up. Hey, let's include any vehicle over four cylinders.
Deer and rabbits are really cute. And ducks are beautiful. People shouldn't be shooting them. Let's do something about hunting. And fish? Doesn't it hurt when they're hooked? Let's put a stop to that too.
Government is out of control. We're losing more and more personal freedom every year. And you guys who support this sort of thing don't even seem to notice.
