You are making a common mistake of melding local, or community issues with Federal government mandates....It is dishonest.
Plus, do you think that all places do the things done where you live? That is rather limited thinking is it not?
See, I think you have our system backwards. The federal government derives their power from the consent of the people, which means the states, not the other way around.
You could probably show some of what you claim to be true in a convoluted way, but just because our Federal government has overstepped their constitutional bounds and bought power with taxpayer money, to turn the system on its head, is of no concern....That is NOT the way is was founded to be.The funding is still federal, and permits are as far as I know usualy also federal.
False and False. Federal funding for roads go towards the interstate highway system, not surface roads that you use most of the time.The funding is still federal, and permits are as far as I know usualy also federal.
