The Beast devouring our Livelihood and Liberty
How the government tells us when they are lying and when they don’t.
The dilemma, the government needs to fund highway maintenance without cutting essential programs such as welfare and bureaucracy.
The Headline: National commission wants to hike fuel taxes, impose driving fees to pay for highways
The Story: The government wants to move to a new system that taxes motorists according to how much they use roads.
The real Problem: A gas tax hike was one of the reasons Democrats lost control of the House and Senate in the 1994 elections.
So, what? They want a mileage-based revenue system. This means equipping every car and truck with a device that uses global positioning satellites and transponders to record how many miles the vehicle has been driven, the type of roads and time of day. Creation and installation of such a system would take about 10 years. This clearly means a system that knows where you are, when you are and all the Orwellian consequence. So, what the government needs to do is assure the sheeple such a system will be designed to prevent vehicles from being "tracked in some big brotherish way."
Analysis – The American Sheeple are so stupid they will wholeheartedly agree. After all, these are the same people who find high school graduate 30 year patrolman police officers making about $100,000,00 a year, retiring at age 55 at $125,000.00 per year, plus medical, to be underpaid.
