The collapsing bridge is only a sign of the inner rot within the nation as a whole. I for one don't justify spending trillions of forced tax payers money by comparing one sort of theft next to another.

The fact that this robbery goes on in a far deeper, across the board, is a symptom of this moral cancer. Would that government stick to the most basic, and minimalist of functions, but thats not its nature. Its nature is defined by the corrupt people who inhabit and enable it.
