A topic on another website forum is going like "gang-busters", and it started with this poster posing this statement. He or she said that we should just raise gas taxes even higher in the U.S. to force people to change their driving habits, and gas guzzling vehicles. Well, the replies started flying in. Here are some examples of responses. Pro-Gas Tax 1. Will repair pot-holed city streets in America. 2. Is a positive form of behavioral modification for all Americans. 3. Those that are educated and "enlightened" know whats best for the common good of the U.S. 4. After-all the EU pays much higher prices for gasoline, why shouldn't America do the same. 5. America is the greatest gross polluter in the world and should pay more taxes on gasoline. 6. This tax could build more refineries. Anti-Tax 1. Who are the enlightened ones, and what makes them more qualified dictate enviromental policies. 2. This tax is just a covert way of pushing a Neo-socialistic agenda on America through the liberal-left. 3. Should Americans be paying for new refineries via gas-taxation? Aren't these oil companies making some big wind-fall profits? If they build new refineries, would they be increasing productivity, and thusly forcing their own profits down? 4. The liberals agenda is to basically force Americans into mass transit, and eventual communal living. It's a utopian idea at best. 5. Higher gas taxes hurts the very ones the liberal claim to be "for". The poor, and lower income folks in America will be hurt, while the wealthier will be able to still afford their gas guzzling SUV's, and P.U.'s. This is hypocritical! Ok, thats a sampling of some of the replies......... What's your, "take" on this.
