The turnpike authority is a wastefull duplication of government. The state already has the DOT. Do a little research, Last year Wsoc did a report about 559 Million dollars of money ear marked for transportation that was diverted elsewhere. The by pass couldn't be built on that amount alone but it would be a start. Isn't it funny how the more yankees we get, the more things they think we need to make OUR HOME more like the one they left?? IE a turnpike authority and toll roads, collective bargaining,(organized Crime) maybe they should all just go back home!!!!!

I am so sick of this yankee stuff, get over it. Last time I checked this was a free country, we are not quit a communist country yet. Maybe after the next 4 years, but not right now.

America became a communist country when Lyndon Johnson and the Democrats regulated freedom of association with the Civil Rights Act.
