(Going to ignore the idea that the government must build the roads) But yeah, why wouldn't i? I don't have a problem paying for food or drink. Or my entertainment. Or my car. Not sure why you think roads would be different. In fact, I'm rather fond of tolling(some privacy concerns though). I travel on a major freeway twice a day. Why shoulnd't I pay more than someone who uses that freeway once a month?

> All the things you take for granted which are delivered by the government

Most all the things i REALLY take for granted are provided by capitalism.

Driving is the most dangerous thing we do in our daily lives. Also probably biggest direct interaction with government laws and infrastructure. It's not a coincidence.

I've had 5 separate jobs over 11 years. Of those, only 1 did not have a day to day developer, who was over 50. This sort of statement reminds me of slashdot saying, before my career even started, that there were going to be no jobs left, because everyone was outsourcing. Will my job be different in 10 years? quote possibly. But it's not much different from what it was 10 years ago. I'm not worried.
