The Stogie Guys say &#8220;Vote for Cigar Rights&#8221; by supporting Bob Barr:

There are, of course, many issues at stake in the election, and we probably wont be voting solely on cigar-related policies. But that doesnt mean cigar issues arent an important factor in who gets our vote. So heres our take on who we think cigar smokers can trust to defend their rights.

As detailed in Mondays article on Obama and McCain, neither candidate offers a particularly impressive agenda. When push comes to shove, we suppose McCain is marginally better on cigar issues as a whole, but not in a particularly meaningful way.

Not to mention that his record suggests he is likely to flip-flop on tobacco issues (after all, he spent a decade trying to jack up taxes on cigarettes before only recently opposing such a hike). So while the pragmatist in us says a begrudging vote for McCain, the idealist says there must be a better choice. And there is.

Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr agrees with us on every important issue: taxes, regulation, smoking bans, trade, and Cuban sanctions. His position can be summed up with this quote: Washington should leave smokers and other tobacco users alone. Here, here!

Smoke &#8216;em if you got &#8216;em.
