A hundred years ago to be stopped and forced to pay cash to people who claimed to own the roads was called Highway Robbery.
Audit the gas taxes... you will have enough to build a tunnel every year for eternity. Of course you would have to build bigger prisons for politicians caught embezzling taxes. So it’s not quite a win win.
A hundred years ago being stopped and forced to pay cash to people who claimed to own the roads was called “using the turnpikes.” Go look at how American roads were built and paid for from Founding until the Interstate System was initiated. Most new roads were turnpikes which you had to pay a toll to use.
Literally turnpikes - the way was obstructed by an actual pike which would be turned away or lifted out of the way to allow access upon payment of fee.
No, not quite a win-win, but a win-win-win, in that you build the jails so that more corrupt politicians actually end up in jail, rather than getting a slap on the wrist and a fine, due to “overcrowding.”
