    I just came across the following. The part I put in boldface was what struck me: the author got it right and said it right.

    Darn. Just as I was getting used to being part of "The Gun Lobby" because I became an NRA member years ago, this clearsighted person blew the whole thing for me. No more status.

    I am also a member of the AAA, though, so maybe I can be considered part of "The Car Lobby." Maybe I can get status again by arguing for the rights of car owners?

    Nah, not as classy and not nearly as important for my country. Besides, there's no Constitutional guarantee that the rights of car owners shall not be infringed.

    Oh, yeah? That's why billions of dollars annually, in the form of gasoline taxes, are transferred from road and highway projects we, the people actually use to so-called "public transportation" projects we neither use nor want. That's why government, federal, state, and local alike, keeps increasing gasoline taxes. That's why government, federal, state, and local alike, keeps fighting the very idea of American energy independence. That's why government, federal and state alike, keeps meddling in the automobile market to make fuel-inefficient vehicles artificially expensive.

    Government has embraced so-called "green thinking" as a means of extending its power and reach into the lives of ordinary citizens. The object of the game isn't to eliminate private ownership of automobiles, but regulate, tax, regulate some more, tax some more, et cetera, and eventually, turn privately owned cars back into luxury items for the very few.

    Well if we're truly the ones in charge, we shouldn't squander this golden opportunity. Everybody! Over to the Activism forum!
