"however when it comes to tax dollars i do think it is best to keep it in the US"

Govt procurement can be made on the basis of cost benefit only. Favoring US companies is protectionism. The rationale (employment) if it makes sense for govt procurement, makes the same amount of sense for anything else. National security issues aside.

And you keep saying that Alta is being subsidized. Its not. Users of bikeshare are being subsidized - Alta had to compete with other vendors of the same technology. I mean if I think a particular highway is subsidized, it does not mean the contractor is subsidized.

Your failure to admit even ONE disadvantage of the tech you support, your use of even protectionist arguments for it, your repetition of talking points, makes you sound very much like someone doing sales and marketing.

have you ever been to this blog before to talk about any other issues?
