Who brought up road taxes? Was not me. What even fueled the road tax idea?

" No kidding, that's nothing more than theft of public services." Theft is not illigal? Is there a legal theft I am not aware of?

2012 F250 4x4 LWB 4dr averages 6.8 mpg 12 months I had it.
2012 F350 4x4 LWB 4dr with 6000lbs plus wench and off road tires NON-E85 8mpg according to the EOD guys that drive it everyday.

I ran the truck on regular fuel one tank full and averaged 2.2mpg better. Same off/on road duties.

Why is it you assume I don't pay my fair share of taxes? Because I shop on base and at the commissary? I buy my fuel on base where it is cheaper? I'm sure I have been paying taxes longer than you have, and I have to pay taxes on my wife's income from another country here in the US. That means we get taxed on her income at 62%, your paying what percent on yours, 23%? You might want to go back and rethink your perspective on my personal finances. I have been paying taxes since 1985, how about you?

Diesel-electric has been powering factories and locomotives for more than 100 years. Still power locomotives today.
