And of course, the same party of dinosaurs would most lkely put a tariff on foreign made ones too.

As opposed to the current administration which restricts these tax credits to only American made cars?

FFS give up this hope your ideals might prevail over everyone else's and don't buy one if you don't want to. Maybe your Pontiac Sunfire will be a collector icon and sell at Barret Jackson for $100K in 20 years,

Your habit of deciding that everyone has to be on one of the extremes - either yours or Donald Trump's - is childish.

I have NO ideological issue with electric vehicles. My issue is economic and logistical. Not to mention the fact that, as I pointed out, they use enormous amounts of rare ores which are extremely dirty to mine and refine.

Good. As for rare earth mining, barely prospected in civilized countries. And how much dirtier than relying on oil sand production?

I mean because there's such a thing as blood diamonds, it won't spare a punch in the face if you use that as an excuse for not buying the wife one.

The son in law shelled out $60K for a used F150. To get to work in town, go shopping, etc. Made maybe 3 trips out of town last year.
