This is a ploy to force us all into tin cans like the Smart car so that the administration can fight the farcical global warming. Maybe the gov't can also pay my hospital bills when I'm injured in a collision in one of these "economy" cars. Or pay for my funeral.
I'm not in favor of giving anyone my money (where do you think that gov't money comes from? It's us!!) so they can buy a car. Nor was I in favor of the gov't handing out $40 coupons for digital converters so that everyone can sit on their lazy asses and watch TV. That was my money!!!
A GOVERNMENT THAT ROBS PETER TO PAY PAUL CAN ALWAYS DEPEND UPON THE SUPPORT OF PAUL.
George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)
Don't support gov't handouts like this; they might benefit you for a while, but at the cost of your ability to determine your own destiny.
If you favor this type of program, remember:
THAT GOVERNMENT IS BEST WHICH GOVERNS LEAST.
Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) - Civil Disobedience, 1849
THE NATURAL PROGRESS OF THINGS IS FOR LIBERTY TO YIELD AND GOVERNMENT TO GAIN GROUND.
Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)
GOVERNMENT IS LIKE A BABY. AN ALIMENTARY CANAL WITH A BIG APPETITE AT ONE END AND NO SENSE OF RESPONSIBILITY AT THE OTHER.
Ronald Reagan , Former U.S. President - Saturday Evening Post, 1965
