    Take away government; take away competent regulation; stop collecting taxes; stop building roads and bridges; cut back on education at all levels; stymy healthcare for everyone but the rich; Come on; make America a land of opportunity again…

    Why, that is a recipe for disaster. The brilliant part of it is that returning America to a land of limited government and individual freedom and opportunity actually would be a disaster to the current power structures and monetary structures. They would be considered illegitimate under an unabridged Constitution.

    I’m afraid you’re in a bad mood. The correct English is declarative mood past tense: ‘They took away … and so made …’


    Not only are not nearly enough new roads and bridges being built, the old ones are being allowed to fall apart. (One can argue that this would be great if they put in public transportation instead, but instead they’re saying, ‘If you don’t work hard and so can’t afford your own private helicopter and instead drive your jalopy over one of our bridges and it collapses, it’s all your own fault.’)


    Making America GREAT again!

    You do understand that roads,bridges, and education are all items that traditionally are funded by local/state governments? The feds only contribution to roads and bridges is a gas tax that is collected and divided between the states. They contribute to education ONLY if you abide by whatever silly rule they think up.

    Shouldn’t Mom and Dad be invested in their child? Shouldn’t YOU repair that hole in the street outside your house?

    Or will you wait for the bureaucratic wheels to turn in DC to fund your road? If you do then you will have to wait for Rangle, Reid, Pelosi, Bohner, McConnel and Ryan to get THEIR cut of the pie first.

    Here we go with the “you didn’t build that” rants.

    I like your sarcasm…. this is exactly what the Republicans seem to want…. Read Howard Zinn’s A Peoples History of the United states ‘Merika is and has always been of/for and by the money’d few upon the backs of the rest’uvus

    “You do understand that roads,bridges, and education are all items that traditionally are funded by local/state governments?”

    Much of wm’s comment applies to state & local governments as much as Washington. Nobody wants to pay for what they see as other peoples’ problems.

    Interesting historical footnote:

    A young Lt. Col. Dwight D. Eisenhower was part of a 1919 military convoy that traveled from Washington to San Francisco. Their heavy trucks struggled on the unpaved roads, and 88 bridges had to be rebuilt before the convoy could cross. The trip took 2 months & must have made an impression on Ike, who championed Federal funding of the Interstate Highway System.

    Well, at least they got that one guy who was messing everything up for everybody else. I hope they get that small handful of rogue agents of the IRS who were interfering in the rights of the TEA Party to participate in an election. It’s always just one guy or a small bunch of malcontents who ruin it for everyone, isn’t it? Now everything will be perfect!

    @ahab

    Really? That’s it? The Koch brothers? The Koch brothers are telling people that the government is spending too much money and needs to be fiscally responsible to achieve solvency? Did you just grab the first object that could be wielded as an offensive weapon and start blindly flailing at the wind?

    It was the German autobahn that really impressed him with how quickly they could be used to shift personnel an materiel.

    Remember, the official name of the Interstates is “Interstate Highways for Defense and Transportation”.

    Bill Maher suggests that liberals should buy states the way that rich guy bought North Carolina and imposed his laws on NC.

    Bruce…do YOU know how to repair/build a road,
    or a bridge or a hydroelectric system? The
    government has the knowledge and the resources for that

    In the spring of 1945 the Allies under Eisenhower battled their way to Germany’s western border. Eisenhower envisioned months of painful slogging across a shattered countryside. Then his forward commanders reported an amazing discovery; a broad ribbon of highway, the best road system anyone had ever seen, a four-lane highway built in the 1930’s with overpasses, ramped interchanges to avoid intersections; and rest areas every 100 miles or so. Once the troop carriers got on the German Autobahn they moved much faster than anticipated and the war was over in weeks, not months.
    .
    In 1953 President Eisenhower thought of those roads when he rejected a rather timid two-lane highway network across America in favor of the four lane Autobahn model built to a single national standard. Its one of the finest highway networks in the world and nobody seems to care the basic idea was copied from the Nazis. (Eisenhower’s Memoirs)

    I don’t see Goldman Sachs building any roads.
