The one thing about my vote that I'm going to express here.

I'm voting no on 50. "But it's for the children!" maybe so, but that doesn't make it any less stupid.

Taxing something the government would like us all to stop doing is stupid, especially when those taxes are supposed to go for something like healthcare. Excuse me, isn't this the law of diminishing returns? As more people quit, there will be less money from the tax coming in. If the nannies all get their way, and no one in Oregon smokes anymore, where will the healthcare money come from?

But since it's for the kids, maybe we should all start smoking. I'll smoke more! Yeah. Genius.
