Why Conservatives Don’t Like Public Transportation

posted by Donna Calvin

By Tim Dunkin

Ask most conservatives what they think about public transportation, and they’d probably tell you that they don’t like it. And it’s not just because of the smell and the gum stuck to the seats. Most of us conservatives, deep down inside, at least in some subconscious way, feel that mass public transportation is just a little bit communist. After all, we conservatives like our freedom. That’s probably a lot of the reason why we’re in love with the automobile….

The reason I like my car is, it’s in my garage when I want to use it.
I don’t have to travel to a station,airport or whatever I don’t have to be there at a certain time. I can travel to where I want to go. And last but not least I don’t have to deal with the TSA pat downs.

This is rather a gross generalization. As a conservative, I believe in the free market, which means, when public transportation makes sense from an economic standpoint, I am all for it, but I think it ought to pay for itself. If it’s nothing but a money loser, then it isn’t worthwhile. Americans of all stripes will take public transport when it is well-priced and if it goes where they want to go, doesn’t take too long, and has a reasonable schedule. If doing so is highly impractical, they won’t use public transport, whether they are liberals or conservatives.

Public transportation is a really great thing in places with high population density, and not such a great thing in suburban life. This is simply reality. Wasting money on public transportation that is not supported by public usage accomplishes nothing except…wasting money, and making liberals feel good. Light rail has proved to be a boondoggle everywhere it has been built. My state is broke over it, can’t finish the one we started, and are already taxing ourselves to death for the next one. A tiny percentage of the population wants to use this particular route, but we’re all paying a ton for it. Not only is this not fair, it’s insane. Furthermore, as soon as population and buildings move to other areas, the train is still stuck where it is, and you have to go through all of this garbage again. It’s completely wasteful use of money and resources.
