The Role of Government

The constitution of the United States in article 1, section 8 empowers congress to lay and collect taxes to provide for a very short list of responsibilities. That list explicitly says “To establish Post Offices and Post Roads”.

A Post Road is defined as a road over which mail is carried. Our representatives are guilty of mismanaged priorities, misallocation of funds, and violation of trust when they collect the user fee fuel taxes, fail to allocate them for the intended purpose and then attempt to impose additional user fees in the form of tolls.

We must not accept the lie that there is no money. The taxes are being paid. The question is “Where is it going?” We are like sheep being fleeced twice. This is a wakeup call to be more diligent about electing good people who will be wise responsible stewards of these resources.
