Shock Therapy

Do we really want to break our dependency on fossil fuels?  Here's how:
  • !00% tax on gas guzzling cars, trucks, and SUVs with exemptions only for those who can show legitimate business reasons for using them (construction workers, not stock brokers);
  • 50% tax on gasoline;
  • 50% of all monies now going to roads and highways transferred to public transit;
  • Rescind all subsidies to oil, coal, and gas and transfer them to wind, solar, and other alternate forms of energy
Let the rest of the status quo fall into line to accommodate these things, and watch how fast things change.
