    If we're both paying, why would you be able to say I can't use them?

    Your point if I have it right is the old progressive saw, "I didn't build that"...So, if you want to say that my usage should be based on taxation paid, as a truck driver, I pay far more than you do for them...So, I should get more say right?

    I don't think we're arguing the same point anymore.

    You may pay more than one individual car owner but you do far more damage to that piece of asphalt than he does too. One 18 wheeler does as much damage to the roads as 9600 cars.

    Well, simple...Take all the cars off my interstate.

    That sounds like you're looking for a private interstate system that you can build entirely on your own finances.

    Let me know how that goes.

    I have one, it's called the interstate system...Maybe you should look into why exactly it was built in the first place...That would be for interstate commerce...That is what I do....

    So we'll need checkpoints at every offramp to ensure that drivers are:

    A) traveling between states

    B) engaging in commerce while traveling to another state

    Purposely divisive leftist perpetuatjions to push an agenda built on envy, and the false narrative of " disparity ".

    All because they have absolutely nothing substantial to run on. Their policies can't stand on their own merits so they invent these class struggles.

    Trying to rope in the useful idiots who actually think Government should be the final arbiter of whats " fair " and " equitable ".

    You are right....just like Romney said, why don't they just go ask their parents for a loan?
