    Well, you would apparently prefer a law preventing you from doing something than a tax that makes it slightly more expensive to do it. So, maybe you hate freedom? Maybe you are so idealistically against taxes that you would cut off your nose to spite your face? It's hard to know, because your debating skills are about as good as Costanza's dating skills.

    It took me a while to quit. During that time, I wished cigarettes cost $20/pack. I made them more expensive by promising to myself that every time I bought a pack, I'd smoke 2 cigarettes and give away the rest. That made it more expensive, and prevented the smoke 'em cause you have 'em thinking after the first two. Plus, if cigarettes were $20/pack, people would be less likely to give them away, making it harder to get hooked.

    with just taxing cigarettes..tax all the bad behavior to save the lives of people that make

    I already gave a calm and logical answer to this and asked you to elaborate your beliefs. Since you cannot respond to that more intellectual line of thinking, here is a response more fitting of your rhetorical nature:

    Are you so stupid that you can't comprehend the analogous argument? If you oppose a tax on cigarettes, why not get rid of all laws designed to enhance safety?

    Why not get rid of all rules regarding automobile safety and speed limits. Why not get rid of OSHA rules for work safety? Why not let all drugs and all medicines be legal over the counter? Why not allow people to commit suicide? Why not let people buy whatever weapon they want and take it wherever they like?

    ^That's a stupid argument, but it is the same argument that you are making.
