Eloquence on Streetsblog

Streetsblog - the inimitable New York City quality-of-life symposium, posted an entry on the transportation plans of presidential candidates [pathetic stuff, as you can imagine]. The post elicited this sparkling comment:

I'll vote for whoever plans on removing all subsidies from auto based infrastructure (including Middle Eastern wars for oil resources) and then using that money to pay back the once thriving private transit industry for 70 years of lost progress due unfair government competition. Then, let a balanced transportation system rebuild itself using market forces instead of government coercion. We'll see how many people choose to not share rides when they bear the true cost private automobile mobility. Dear U.S. government, I know you know best, but the people would rather choose their preferred mode of transportation. Thx bi.

Lol. Thanks for the post. My comment up in the lights! Check out MetroRiderLA if you're interested in a Los Angeles perspective on mass transit!
