You just gotta love a liberal. It seems that with many Americans now buying smaller, more energy efficient cars, hybrids and electric vehicles … the Gas-Tax money is starting to dry up. Let’s get this straight. The Obama Administration has been advocating fuel efficiency for going on 3 years … and now that the American public is starting to begrudgingly comply … the folks in DC are upset because gas-tax revenues are down.

Senator Kent Conrad (D-ND), the head of the Senate Budget Committee is calling for a tax on the number of miles driven, instead of on gasoline. Conrad noted that soon the tax receipts on gasoline will not cover federal highway spending. The gap is supposed to reach $18 billion a year by 2021. Senator Conrad lamented that the change in American driving habits has created a disparity between the funds needed and the way that we pay for them.

Maybe the Senator doesn’t realize that all people who drive cars DO NOT make over $250,000.00 a year. Can he remember back to 2007? All the promises about no new federal taxes “of any kind” … but then again, nobody ever expected the Democrats to keep those promises.

Just wait till people stop smoking ... What are they going to do when all that tobacco tax money runs out?

Ultimately what they want is for all of you to be living in one of those cramped European-type cities, shuffling into filth trains like sardines and heading to work and back. And your only mode of transportation is a Venezuelan-made bicycle.

The democrat pieces of crap hate the motor car, they hate the freedom and choice it gives you and they'll do everything they can to take it away from you.

"What This Nation Needs..."

Well, what we really need is
Energy Independence from OPEC!

If we stop pussyfooting around with democrat/republican debate on "debt ceilings" and 'lost revenues', and focus on exploiting our own natural assets here in North America, we can end the 9.2 unemployment quickly, by letting the big corporate oil giants & big capital investors do what they do best, i.e. Create Wealth; get us back to full employment again.

Fourteen million people are out of work (HELLO!)

We have vast, untapped Oil Reserves
in Shale Deposits.. in Utah, Upper New York, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma &
W, Virginia and West Texas, and we
have new technologies for vertical and slant drilling techniques called "fracking" to unlock the Oil and Natural Gas Underground Deposits...right now!

Fact: We can replace Saudi Arabia as the world's leading exporter, believe it or not. Compressed Nat.
Gas (CNG) can fuel our Truck & Bus Fleets right now; The U.S. Post Office is converting, so is UPS.

Big Fleet Owners Are Waking Up...to the profit potentials.

Research it.

Get the government off the corporate back-side, and we can become Exporters of LPG & CNG
instead of 500 Billion Dollars per year wasted on Saudi Arabian OIL at 100 bucks per barrel.

Put 12 million people back to work
and we'll have the revenue, incoming... to afford decent healthcare for the people, and social security for our senior citizens. - reb
