Taxed by Mileage -- Rural Route's money to support urban dweller's deficits....

This particular proposition is the continuation of the population centers of the US being propped up by the taxes of those of us who choose to live in the country.

Gas WILL be going up.

The problem is that outside of the non-acceptable intrusion into our privacy, the money collected will not go to the roads YOU drive on. It will go where the central government decides - after the general budget takes a 90% cut. Like all of these rip-offs, the money never ends up where the government says it will....

We're outvoted, folks. We already spend more to drive, and we'll be disproportionately taxed to support those less self-sufficient....


Those of us who want nothing to do with the government dole and it's inevitable control will soon be considered insurgents in what used to be our own land.

That has been going on for decades. Country folk have been getting taxed to pay for boondogle urban projects like metro transportation systems, social program after social program that only makes worse in urban America problems rural America don't have.
