Fed up residents repair road in 8 days

From CNN.com:

Fed up residents repair road in 8 days — for free: Tired of waiting for government help, business owners and residents on the Hawaiian island of Kauai pulled together and completed a $4 million road repair job — for free. “We can wait around for the state or federal government to make this move, or we can go out and do our part,” said local businessman Ivan Slack.

This is a libertarian’s dream… citizens, when empowered, can solve problems better than the government can, and do it for less. In this case, they accomplished a civil engineering job that the government estimated would cost $4 million, and take 2 years, in just 8 days, and at a total cost to the tax payers of $0!!!!.
