I heard there were lots of cars that were close to the crossovers that were using them and going back..

There aren't as many of those crossovers as there were years ago.  Apparently when they're rebuilt 75 a couple of times over the years they've taken some out.  That often means emergency responders have to take the longer way around or wait until the road is actually closed down and then approach going the opposite way.  I don't remember if there are concrete barriers along the center in that stretch or not.  There are stretches along there that are built so close to the surface of Lake Erie that even a good 4 wheel drive vehicle might have trouble getting across the median without a turnaround.

I can almost handle meddling within the parties and governments, that's probably the norm nowadays whether anyone wants to admit it.  But foreign interference.....to me, that is a different story where that is totally wrong and a violation of what a free country is to be.  It should be a matter of mutual respect, but then again I realize that is naive. 

We've meddled in so many elections of other countries over the years...   latest was the Palestinians when they split and let Hezbollah in charge of part of their territory...     They don't even count the miltary coupes we've helped...  and the count is 81 times we've interfered with a success rate of nearly 60%

It's been going on since this country was founded, and long before.

Heck - didn't Royal families try to arrange marriages among each other - hoping to influence them through blood?

This is nothing new.

I know it's nothing new, but still don't think it is right.  We shouldn't meddle, nor should we be meddled with.  It is the one voice we still have in a democracy, free elections.

I wouldn't say they are "free."

Plenty of people are paying lots of money to buy them.
