Canadian import, Gov. Granholm, has ruined and bankrupted Michigan to the point where counties have to revert paved primary roads to gravel roads to save money. http://www.wwmt.com/articles/roads-1363526-mich-counties.html
I don't know if you have ever driven a gravel road year 'round, but they are hard on cars, prone to potholes and washouts, and hard to keep clear in winter.
If anything bespeaks failure of Liberal policies, it is America's car capital reverting to gravel roads.
