I agree that taxation is theft. Well, more like robbery, really.
Forget about a sin tax on sugar. The government needs to stop subsidizing the corn industry and get rid of the sugar quota. Ever wonder why the U.S. is the only country that puts high fructose corn syrup in everything? Corn subsidies + sugar quota. Imported and fancy domestic chocolate/candy contain sugar. Regular domestic chocolate/candy/soda contain HFCS. Bleh!
I had some HFCS last night in a cookie. Screw that, felt bad. Remembered why I quit.
