many of the libertarians I know are lower-middle class,
and travel typically by bike or bus. Personally, I think
the issue of bus vs. rail depends entirely on what kind
of bus lines and what kind of rail.

proposed for Austin until its advocates figure out where
Austin is. Being opposed to the subsidization of sprawl,
I'm against yet another way of subsidizing it. We need
to end the existing subsidies for living in the suburbs,
not create new ones.
