Other than reformatting after grabbing this from here

Here's the game. Can you figure out why this guy is not getting my vote? (Hint: it has nothing to do with the issue he's talking about, and nothing to do with his party affiliation.)Find alternatives to paying toll
No to toll roads. Toll roads are not the answer. If toll roads are implemented the public will suffer, as usual. For instance, we already pay federal and state taxes on every gallon of gas and diesel. Add toll roads that's double taxation. Even if you don't drive, everything we consume is delivered by truck. Thus the cost of transporting goods will be passed on to the consumer. That's triple taxation. Some possible remedies are:
1. Do a better job of fighting for federal gas tax dollars.
2. Stop using transportation dollars for new buildings and vehicles. Work with what you have like non-government entities have to do.
3. Look into turning lesser county roads back to cheaper gravel roads which work just as good. We can fund our highways and roads without toll roads.Teddy Fleck, Libertarian candidate for Lt. Governor, Springfield
