When did we ever stop tarring and feathering politicians? And why?

That been floating around for a year or so, I seriously doubt it will go anywhere. There are just too many easier ways to tax than installing GPS milage trackers on every vehicle in the US and readers at many gas stations, like for example taxing gas. This will never even be brought up in congress, there are many other more dangerous things the Government does that we should focus on.

Those are probably the most profound and salient questions I've heard in a very long time. Bravo!

It's never too late to fix a mistake...

They already do. The tax is called a license.

you know this is one reason our founding fathers fought for back in the revolution, why do we sit here and stand for this?

I think this sums up the reason rather nicely. "America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system and too soon to shoot the bastards." ...Claire Wolf

I don't think we're quite ready to shoot the bastards while there's still hope that we can change things by peaceful means, such as voting those selfsame bastards out.

I believe that there are more than enough patriots who will stand if and when it becomes necessary.

If the gummint wanted to tax based on miles traveled it would be much easier to do that at the tag office when you buy your yearly license plate sticker. Since its already a felony to monkey with an odometer it would be a fairly good gauge of your taxable mileage.
But that would make way too much sense and take away the big bruvva real time tracking ability that this whole idea is really based on. It's not about taxes and revenue. It's about control.

Soon we will have tracking chips embedded in our necks and will be taxed for every mile waked on public property.
