Voting with Tires

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberty_pole Very interesting. I don't think I had ever heard of it, or if I did, I don't remember. One was even errecting in 1945 for the Netherland liberation from the Nazis.

The Liberty Pole was even on 19th century American coinage!

Maybe the Daily Paul is a modern Liberty Pole as people meet to talk ... "When an ensign was raised (usually red) on a liberty pole, it would be a calling for the Sons of Liberty or townspeople to meet and vent or express their views regarding British rule"

You know, most all states have state income tax. Texas doesn't. Not everyone moves to Texas. Voting with one's feet can be a hardship as one uproots themselves and puts forth an expense to move to an unfamiliar place.

We went to Houston, Texas, for Christmas. When we were in a hurry we traveled the Beltway. It was a toll road. It would cost us $7.50 and multiple stops to get from point A to point B. Lots of newer, nicer cars traveled that road. When we were not in a hurry we traveled the 610 Loop. Older cars traveled that road. The reason I noticed was the new Texas license plate was not seen much on the 610 loop, but most of the cars on the Beltway had the new license plate because the cars were new. So we voted with our tires and traveled the 610 most of the time. I wonder, maybe all the people without money would end up voting with their feet and then where they went the roads would be crummy? Are roads a form of socialism? i.e., The pooling of money and spreading the wealth to all in the form of a cooperative?

“Some mistakes ought not be passed onto the children.”

Yes...

Romans 5:6 KJV
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

...because some costs ought not be passed onto the children.
