There are many things wrong with America today, but foremost among those things are the abhorrently low speed limits on our streets and highways. You want to speed up the economy? Speed up its arteries! Vote for Prop 130, a new national speed limit of 130 mph.

Yeah. That's why we have video games. Need For Speed Most Wanted hits stores tomorrow.
