To the editor:
Let’s ask ourselves: How did Wisconsin get in this mess?
The current administration in Washington put taxpayer money out for job stimulus. The mistake in Washington was to specify and target specific types of projects.
The types of projects were determined by anti-fossil fuel, anti-car social thinking, not what is best for our country, like high-paying construction jobs on our roads and bridges most in need of maintenance and safety upgrades.
High-speed rail is only successful where there is density. We don’t have density.
If high-speed rail was cost effective, commercial enterprise would be running rail now. Instead, rail went out of vogue because there was no money being made transporting passengers.
Why? Because we want to be in cars. And if we want to be in cars, who is the arrogant, socialist current federal administration to tell me, “Get out of your car and get on a train”?
This is yet another outrageous controlling and manipulating power grab by the federal government to take away our rights and liberties and control and direct our lives. And they are using our Federal Treasury to do it to us. Well, Mr. President, tell Congress, “We are not your ATM.”
Enough is enough. Take a stand, and meet me at the next Tea Party rally. We can avoid a second revolution in this country if we make our voices heard.
