ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA. Please help spread the word against new proposed taxes on cigarettes and alcoholic drinks. The North Carolina legislature is considering ways to expand its revenue base by imposing so-called "sin taxes" on North Carolinians. We believe that people should be free to make their own personal choices, and the state should not decide which consumer goods are "sinful" and which are not. Also, the government should stop spending on wasteful programs and projects, and then it would not "need" extra revenue. We don't need new taxes, we don't want them and we don't want the state government to tell us how to live our lives. Help us spread opposition to this proposal by downloading a copy of the petition and getting your friends and family to make a strong statement against "sin taxes" in North Carolina. Thank you!
