With cars, I don't think that's a valid argument. So long as the car is running, it's using the streets, those need to be maintained. If you're telling the government that you paid $1 for your car, then whining about potholes, you're going on my face punching spree list.

As for everything else, meh... I try not to worry about the stuff I can't change.
The only money the government "makes" is on taxes. So they're going to get it where ever they can. I'm not going to cry over the $1.07 I give to the government on my consignment store purchace. It's a losing battle.
