National Mileage Tax Means Big Brother is Coming

For the past few weeks since Obama’s Inauguration, I’ve felt like I’ve been living in George Orwell’s novel, 1984.  With the proposed restrictions on Speech with the Fairness Doctrine, the Orwellian rephrasing of language, and the possible civilian army.  Now, with a government proposal for a national mileage tax to replace the gas tax, utilizing a GPS device in every car in the nation, Big Brother will soon be watching.

The system would require all cars and trucks be equipped with global satellite positioning technology, a transponder, a clock and other equipment to record how many miles a vehicle was driven, whether it was driven on highways or secondary roads, and even whether it was driven during peak traffic periods or off-peak hours.

The idea of taxing mileage has come as people are buying more fuel efficient cars, mostly because of government scare tactics over global warming.  Because of this, people are spending less money on gas, decreasing government revenues from the gas tax.  It is apparent that this administration means to tax us to death.  They will stop at nothing to come up with new ways to rob our hard earned money.  But be careful not to say anything or do anything that they don’t want you to do.  Big Brother is watching.
