This is what I am referring to whether by state or nationally or not. Reminds of me the canal projects that were such boondoggles done state by state. Not to mention the Big Dig in Boston.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
