My Response to Mark Blocks Smoking Ad

Political correctness is at the foundation of every single item on the far lefts agenda. It is not politically correct to:

Say a woman does not have the right to choose with her own body or to even suggest it.
Allow parents to teach their own values about homosexuality in the home.
To believe and teach that marriage is between a man and a woman.
Allow parents right to spank their children.
Fly the flag anywhere we deem fit.
To have children recite the pledge in the classroom.
For graduates to pray at their graduation.
Teach our children that there is a God.
Suggest that those who are at a lower income bracket to be a part of the investment in the system that they benefit from.
Speak out against Muslim extremist who have openly said that in the name of religion that they want to destroy us.
Allow parents to put a candy bar in their children’s lunch.
Allow parents to decide if they want McDonald’s french fries in their happy meal.
To hunt, fish, and eat meat.

This is only a small beginning to a huge list that is the basis of the socialistic agenda of the far left.

At first I myself cringed at this ad. I though, “Oh, Great! Another thing we have to defend. How tacky, how inappropriate.”

Then I listened to Mr. Block and Mr. Cain explain this ad. They both said the same thing. Basically this: Mr. Block said he would never encourage anyone to smoke, but he should be free to decide. Mr. Cain said Mr. Block never smokes around him, that he would encourage people to not smoke, but Americans should be free to decide.

Freedom to decide for ourselves is the direct ammunition to use against political correctness, which, all by itself, is the foundation that we have to kill. When we do, and only when we do, will we take this country back. When we knock the leg of political correctness out from under the table of the far left platform, it comes crashing to the ground. We get our schools back. We get our home back. We win on the abortion debate.

This ad went viral today. When I got home today I had 10 online polls in my email. All of them had over 70%+ support for this and 30%- against. The people got it. The conversation this week will be about personal freedom. It will be this. Is it wise to smoke? No. Should the government take away my freedom to chose to do it? Never.

The political correct crowd says, and they are right, that french fries are bad for our health. Is it wise to eat them? No. Should the government take away my freedom to chose to do it? Never.

But the far left does not stop there, they also say it is dangerous to teach our children that homosexuality is wrong. That it is dangerous to teach our children there is a God and that we should have moral values. That it is bad to fly the flag when it offends. That is creates a terrible situation to have our children recite the pledge of allegiance. That celebrating Christmas in our schools is bad. I could go on. I would ask that you fill in the rest. Think about all the things that the far left wants to take away from us as a right to chose.

This ad sets up Mr. Cain to have this discussion of our rights like no other ad in the history of politics.

Mr. Cain, “Do I smoke? No. Do I encourage anyone to smoke? No, just the opposite, I highly discourage it. Do I support the right of Mr. Block to do so? Most definitely.”

Mr. Cain now has the ability to argue AGAINST smoking, yet FOR personal freedom.
The way it should be. Not the government, or the far left, telling us what to do.

Over and over again, he gets to make this point. Why? Because this ad started a discussion, and the far left media fell for it. It is brilliant.

Is smoking dangerous? Yes! But…

Car Crash Stats: There were nearly 6,420,000 auto accidents in the United States in 2005. The financial cost of these crashes is more than 230 Billion dollars. 2.9 million people were injured and 42,636 people killed. About 115 people die every day in vehicle crashes in the United States — one death every 13 minutes.

About 300,000 people die each year from being obese or overweight.

In 2006, the most recent year for which we have statistics available, 158,599 people — 89,243 men and 69,356 women — died from lung cancer in the U.S. Since smoking is responsible for 85% of lung cancers, statistically lung cancer caused by smoking is responsible for nearly 135,000 U.S. deaths per year.

It is all relevant.

The far left will say that this encourages children to smoke. I ask this:

What encourages a child to smoke more. A political ad which enables the next President to repeat over and over that it is not good for you? Or a political system that takes a parents right away to teach right and wrong and moral values in the home. We say abstinence? They say you cannot teach that, children will never listen. Get what I am saying?

Now it is our job to get out and defend Mr. Blocks right to smoke, as well as say repeatedly that smoking is a bad decision. But that it is just that, a personal decision.

Again, I say that this was brilliant.
