I wonder sometimes if the common sense approach to any and all things is avoided because we’ve put ourselves in a world where things must be complicated.
Take our streets and road networks across the country. Nationwide we have cities and counties that are strapped for cash. We have infrastructure that is crumbling more and more each day. In addition to the existing infrastructure, we have new projects that will help the flow and better the communities…supposedly. They insist on raising taxes to fund these new projects. This new infrastructure to begin with is extremely expensive, and often just the pet-projects to those who know people who would benefit from such projects. So let’s assume we go forward with the projects, in years ahead, has anyone considered that these projects will add to the burden that the cities/counties are already experiencing—lack of cash? More roads does mean more maintenance, or atleast I would think so.
