The left has an unexplainable faith that government is the one and only true power on earth to provide justice and balance the scales of all they see is wrong. This faith baffles me, considering how obvious it is that any government is practically always formed of individuals that are practically always far more amoral, faulty, and easily corrupted by even the slightest bit of power, than your average citizen. The stories of government trampling their peoples, for the good of the collective practically always, abound. And this is another one of those stories:
“Red-light cameras are to prevent the very dangerous, so called ‘T-bone’ crashes, where you have the front of vehicle running into the side of another. We are in favor, in concept, of the red-light cameras, but they have to be done to certain engineering criteria,” AAA New York spokesperson Robert Sinclair told CBS 2′s Rob Morrison on Tuesday.
By federal law, drivers have to have enough time to get through a yellow light — three seconds at the typical 30 mph intersection. Back in October, engineers at AAA New York discovered a problem. At some intersections with the cameras, the yellow lights were almost a half-second too fast.
These systems are not about safety. Don’t get fooled. They are about revenue generation. Just like speeding ticket traps are about revenue generation. They pretend that it is because they care and are trying to even save lives. Bullshit! These things are all about generating more money, and power – don’t forget the power – for the forever hungry beast. Anyone stupid enough to think government does anything for our welfare, instead of for it’s own needs and wants, with whatever occasional thing that looks like it does good being accidental, is just plain outright stupid.
And before I get inundated by idiots thinking I am saying I want no government and anarchy should rule, let me cock block that dumb ass argument. I understand the need of government: I just want it as limited as possible, with everyone understanding that government should serve us, not itself, primarily. The more government does, even if you are stupid enough to think it is done for you, the more corrupt and bad it is for us citizens.
Government, contrary to what the marxist ideology – and this belief applies to every collectivist offshoot of this dark cult’s dogma about government – says, can not replace a divine being. At least religions understand that they need to sell the concept of a perfect heaven and hell where we are punished, AFTER life on this earth. The morons that brought the all knowing and just divine god to earth and promised us all heaven on earth in return, have been the ones to be the best at creating the concept of hell on earth. Think hard about that before you pretend government is the solution to anything.
