    Like Clinton, it appears Huckabee had it out for us smokers:

    I didn't like this guy before. Can't stand him now. :mad:

    I didn't nickname Huckabee "Governor Busybody" for nothing.

    At least a tax on tobacco is a voluntary tax. If we are going to raise taxes, that is the way to do it.

    A tobacco tax are a lousy way to fund government. The more government tax something the less of it will be produced. Therefore, it decreases government revenue over time - which I am fine with if spending is cut to correspond with the drop in revenue but, unfortunately, government spending continues to rise regardless of what happens to the revenue stream.

    Using the same standard that Huckabee uses to claim 94 tax cuts, Clinton cut taxes over 100 times.

    Yes, a lifestyle is voluntary: smoking, church attendance, driving, etc. In fact, living itself is voluntary. Your point? Undermining the rights of adults to live freely is no excuse to do anything.
