Hillary Clinton, tough on smoke......not on terrorists

Senator Clinton's comments regarding a nationwide smoking ban exemplify a general ignorance by politicians about businesses and individuals financially impacted by smoking ban laws.

August 28, 2007 -- WASHINGTON - Hillary Clinton lavished praise on New York City's tough anti-smoking laws yesterday - and said she supports smoking bans in public places across the country....Clinton noted that when New York's smoking ban was being considered, critics claimed, "Oh, that's the end of, you know, the bars and restaurants in New York City." ......But she boasted, "We are now having more business than ever before......

She is of course, uninformed about the facts:

In Minneapolis more than 120 hospitality establishments closed due to a downturn in business after local smoking bans. (In a typical year before the ban only 15 closed)

Furthermore, even the World Health Organization confirmed secondhand smoke does not cause cancer:

Who then is pushing the smoking ban agenda, and why?

Hillary's pro-smoking ban agenda is not the only reason to vote against her for President......the Democratic party's pacifist, liberal, ideology is the foremost reason not to entrust the safety of our nation to a weak, anti-military candidate......but her anti- free market stance does help solidify our resolve.

Update: Vote here against Hillary's nationwide smoking ban agenda, and send the anti-free market politicians a clear message.
