The bottom line is that you feel that government is wasting your money. I'm sure the sprawl people also feel that way when they hear about developments like LRT. Both of you have your biases, and both of you are entitled to them.

If government spending was limited to 2-3% a year (like Prop 2 1/2 in Boston), the city would still have enough money to fund the necessities like police and sewer, etc, but new projects would need to be supported by a majority of the voters.

In this way, city government would be more democratic and less likely to be swayed by special interest groups.
