    As most cigar smokers are aware the Obama administration signed into law the "Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act" which led to the FDA's recent decision to regulate premium cigars. This highly intrusive and expensive regulation will likely kill-off 75% of the premium cigar business.

    Yet premium cigars are not the only target of this administration. Craft beer is also in the cross-hairs.

    It all stems from a provision in Obamacare that will require breweries to create a detailed calorie count on every beer they produce. Creating such a calorie calculation is estimated to cost upwards of $80,000 per product. Obviously this would dramatically hurt the smaller breweries and likely cause them to create fewer innovative beers since this new cost would not be viable for small batch releases.

    So folks... it's time to throw these bums out office. Local or nationally... please vote for candidates that support small government and personal liberty.
