The current anti-smoking campaign
not about children or public health ...
It is all about
YOUR MONEY... They want it!
Today's Anti-Smoking Hysteria is no haphazard accidental
development. In fact, it has been deliberately engineered, funded, and
promoted by powerful economic interests that stand to make $tillions by
making you and other smokers suffer hugely unfair punitive
taxation and higher insurance premiums.
The interests behind the
recent hysteria are known today as the
Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex. They are the most
powerful economic force on earth after the Military Industrial Complex and,
perhaps, Big Oil. It includes the drug manufactures, chemical manufacturers,
insurance industry, and health care industry.
This fascist profit
driven force has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into bogus
manipulative advertising, and
international anti-smoking campaigns. They're doing this, of course, because
they stand to make huge profits and even larger
amounts in the lucrative smoking cessation business, regulatory, compliance and
enforcement activities, and health care costs.
And, they have a willing
partner with the many bought off representatives in Congress (many who are
ex-pharmaceutical industrial complex executives) who stand to extract higher
taxes and fees to support their big government programs.
Have we been
had by them? You bet we have!
Deception #1: PUBLIC HEALTH.
Central to any socialist movement is the
politics of division and the idea that
whatever a bureaucracy does is for the "public good." Hence, we have seen the
rise of phrases like, "health care crisis," "pediatric crisis,"
and some of their most persuasive rhetoric, "it's for the children," and
"it's the right thing to do."
"The great masses of
people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one.
Especially if it is repeated over and over." - Adolph Hitler
tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to
believe it." - Joseph Goebbels
Today, a growing number of dumbed down, uninformed and
simple minded Americans have bought into the lies.
There may be a health care crisis, but not
the kind these Fascists are wanting you to believe.
- Rising health care costs and the drain on
Medicare is not caused by smokers... it's caused by the explosion of an AIDS
epidemic among the homosexual and intravenous drug user community. In the US,
AIDS is the number one killer of African American men ages 25 and 44 and the
second leading cause of death for black women of that age group.
(US Department of Health and Human Services 10/28/98)
- Insurance rates aren't skyrocketing because of
health care costs for smokers... it's caused by out of control health care
costs of homosexual domestic partners with AIDS. Major corporation after
corporation has begun extending health care coverage to homosexual couples in
the battle against AIDS.
With a contrived crisis as its
centerpiece, government and social propagandists have sprung into action with
elaborate public relations (propaganda)
campaigns whipping the public into a frightened frenzy where they willingly and
blindly submit themselves to a money and power hungry cadre of statists.
Both Democrats and Republicans
in Congress have passed sham legislation that does nothing for public health,
does not address their stated goals of reducing teen smoking, but rather
nationalizes health care, raises
taxes on the middle-class and extends the size and authority of government over
What's been their rationale supporting their grab for
money and power?
Fear, fear, and more distorted fear!
It's the same process the govenment used in an earlier time with
their "Reefer Madness" propaganda campaign. Like then, nearly all the recent
tobacco legislation has been based on bogus and discredited
In the '60's they told us
that taking a toke off that marijuana cigarette turned people into sex crazed
murderers. Today they tell us that people who light up in public and puff on
their cigarettes not only put themselves at risk but also is causing cancer in
those non-smokers around them.
Well, the fact is that marijuana smokers
were not transformed into sex crazed killers in the 1960's and passive or
secondhand smoke is not causing cancer in anybody today.
So, why are we being told these lies?
on and I'll try to explain it to you.
The current propaganda campaign being waged against the
tobacco industry amounts to extortion by the U.S. government,
lawyers, insurance companies, and many others
in the health related professions. They are simply coercing your money from you
through the spreading of fear and in some cases lying to you in exchange for
higher taxes, huge legal fees, higher insurance premiums, and higher medical
tax-and-spend statists who want to control you and take more of your money are
absorbed in convincing you that because of a contrived health problem associated with cigarette smoking and
second hand smoke you should willingly give
them your money.
To bolster their tax-and-spend motives, they
fabricated yet another "crisis" in America -- a "health care crisis" and say
tax increases are necessary "to protect the children."
What money they don't get from tax increases and fees, they plan to get through
Anti-smoking liberals have for
years siphoned billions of tax dollars, via Federal and State Grant Money, the
ASSIST and IMPACT programs are a primary source, and diverted charitable
contribution dollars to their coffers under the guise of improving health and
Government funding for anti-smoking groups with
taxpayer funds, or any other social group with "an ax to grind", is nothing
more than politicians buying votes and a way to circumvent the laws that
prohibit Government employees from using public funds to promote their own
Folks, it has nothing to
do with children or health

Remember the saying, "Follow the Money"? The
anti smoking industry is a multi-billion dollar a year industry, a real money
maker. I ask you, would these people lie in order to make more money? I think
the answer is obvious.
