There has been a lot of talk lately of all the bad things that will happen if the price on cigarettes is increased. The black market, the new taxes, etc. These are but poor excuses that people will use in order to avoid standing up for what is right. Historically, Americans have been the champions of righteousness. We stood up against English tyranny in our revolution, we fought the evils of Nazi Germany, and when we saw that fighting in Vietnam was no longer morally justified, we protested and put an end to the suffering. So, my friends, let us, in the proud tradition of American citizens, stand up for what is right. Contact your senator and support the anti-tobacco legislation.
