As the states receive billions of dollars from stimulus funds (our income taxes) supposedly for roads and bridges there are transponders and highway divider barriers becoming visible all over the country preparing to implement tolling many highways in America, and if that’s not enough the National Surface Transportation Infrastructure Finance Commission claims they need to raise the fuel tax 15 cents a gallon for diesel and 10 cents for gas adding to all the other taxation on fuel already by the government and state fuel taxes.
I beseach you to read on while I attempt to elucidate the malfeasance of this dastardly issue and bring to light the modus operandi.
We pay for the roads with high taxes this isn’t enough so they put tolls on the roads we built with our taxes and charge us to drive on the roads we payed for already and then in some cases they sell or lease the toll roads to private and foreign entities.
And now even though they have taxed and tolled us into oblivion this still isn’t enough they are going to implement within the next ten years a national wide VMT(Vehicle Mileage Tax) tax grid. Yes all vehicles will be equipped with a GPS monitoring system and you will be taxed by the mile. It’s not enough we are all already tagged now we will all be bagged also.
Can you say highway robbery?
What a great idea we need the money to fix our roads….Right. Once this is implemented the next thing will be receiving your speeding ticket in the mail automatically.
They will be able to track our every move, why not just get it over with and accept a microchip in our fore heads.
How much more are we willing to pay or put another way how much more can we pay in taxes?,as they peculate our taxes the average American already gives fifty percent of their income in some form of taxes, licence, fee or permit which are all a form of taxation and what about privacy I guess that has been thrown into the garbage along with our reason, outrage and Constitution.
We have already accepted big brother watching our every move, now what…. we are going to accept big brother taxing our every move?.
I declaim this is becoming shameful .
Is there even a scintilla of the American spirit left in the USA?
Like the song say’s we have to stand for something or we will fall for anything America.
Just another unconscionable act by those in power.
Now here’s the bottom line, “100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Debt … all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services taxpayers expect from government.” -Grace Commission report submitted to President Ronald Reagan – January 15, 1984
This stimulus plan as we are all aware comes from money printed and put into circulation by the Federal Reserve, we have to pay the debt back to this private institution with interest and with our income taxes, (the fed is paid solely by our income taxes.. these are federal reserve notes.. not United States Treasury Bills) the states have been paid for the roads and bridges, this is a single issue. It is a done deal, so why then are the states still whining about raising fuel taxes and trying to push this VMT program?.
There will never be enough taxes as long as there is government.
The list below shows what states and the amount they are recieving from the so called stimulus plan.
