The Federal government should not be able to tell us how to live our life or develop a system of social engineering through taxation that subverts the will of the people. Quite literally, a tax on cigarettes is the Federal Government interfering into our every day lives even if it so for our good. No product or good deserves to be unfairly singled out or tax at an arbitrary rate that the government decides on. We, the American people, should be free to make choices for ourselves and the Constitution quite clearly leaves this right to the discretion of the States and there is where it should reside. There should be no taxes on cigarettes above and beyond what there is upon any other product unless the state decides differently.
