Your socialist newspaper is again proposing more socialism by punishing those who work and have to get to work using our highways.

A couple of years ago we had more than $100 million overtaxed surplus in the state. Those we elected couldn't wait to find ways to squander it on pork rather than give it back to the taxpayers. Now our intelligent leaders say we have to charge to use the express lanes. Where are the alternate highways? What sane individual would get on the freeway if he didn't have to?

There is also a proposal to put a computer chip in our cars so we can be monitored wherever we go.

Sounds more like Russia and China every day.
