We still at war with Eurasia?
Quote from the committee on wanting to raise gas taxes:
"According to a draft of the financing commission's recommendations, the nation needs to move to a new system that taxes motorists according to how much they use roads. While details have not been worked out, such a system would mean equipping every car and truck with a device that uses global positioning satellites and transponders to record how many miles the vehicle has been driven, and perhaps the type of roads and time of day."
Thats newspeak for: WE ARE IN CONTROL!!! YOU ARE NOT FREE!!!
We shall never prevent the abuse of power if we are not
prepared to limit power in a way which occasionally may
prevent its use for desirable purposes.
