Jonathan, >> Why didn't east mountain homebuilders organize and fund the expressway themselves?

Because voters allow politicians to spend their hard earned dollars for them. If people told the politicians to cap tax rates at .5% of assessments, at least government would be limited in the amount of stupid things it could do. That 0.5% figure would still give politicians enough money to take care of the basics, so any new projects would need to be funded by the individuals involved.

It simply isn't a good idea to give people who don't earn money, the ability to spend it. They don't feel the need to spend it wisely, as every person who works for his/her own money does.
