is it possible that by some mean of subliminal messaging the govn't has been telling us to smoke through the not smoking commericals. i mean what better way to collect more money for the govn't. if more people buy cigs then the more tax $$ they collect on it. wouldn't the best way to stop people from smoking would be just to not advertise it at all on the tv and educate kids in school about it based on the study and research. i don't think it goes well to show the kids how many people smoke though. i really think the govn't is telling people to smoke in some subliminal way.

I believe the government would make more money from people not smoking.

When people live long healthy lives they can earn more money and be taxed more.
When a 40 year old dies of lung cancer they can not send the government anymore income tax. If a person is suffering from a smoke related illness they might need to stay at home and collect welfare or whatever from the government.
IMO the government has more to lose then to gain from cigarettes.
