Well said Stuart !
Maybe it's time for JL Reese to retire this blog. Since the election is over.... and we DO all know that today's politicians wouldn't own a smart. Heck, they don't even pay for their own gas.

This is about Smart car not the election. Can we all just be happy. My opinion is both of them would ask the Big 3 to make smart cars!!!!

I guess I can't read. Because "official forum for smart owners and enthusiasts to discuss their cars and the overall smart experience" means that we focus on our cars rather than attack people whom you disagree with.

JL Reese is a fine guy and his post is relevant to smart cars. Popping off and blaming Republicans is both off topic and inane.

If you understood the source of the mortgage meltdown you would realize it was not the rich and greedy but the insane idea of forcing banks to lend money to people who could not afford loans (Community Reinvestment Act pushed by liberals in the 1970's) and then exacerbated by more regulations of congress and the folks at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac who got paid incentives to issue more bad loans. Sure there were Rebpublicans and greedy rich people involved as well.

But this is not the place to have that conversation - take it to a board that deals with such topics please.

The US has now one of the highest business tax rates in the world. The economic studies show that higher taxes drive businesses away from a country as they lessen global competitive advantage.

For a source of information see this post in particular.

Of course taxling local businesses is also folly since businesses just pass those taxes on to consumers. Consider it a 'stealth' tax.

Get a few facts straight...

3% is not what the US has for reserves but represents the known reserves in the areas that exploration was not banned. If our oil companies were allowed to explore for oil in and around the US we would discover much greater reserves.

And forget about Obama owning a smart car - he is the one demonizing overseas work, wants protectionism of American jobs, and wants to tax American businesses - his campaign slogan will soon change to "see our jobs and businesses run overseas, baby"

(1 House) OBAMA Would be seen driving in a SMART Car Long Before.... (7 Houses) Mc Cain....Betcha ! & Obama will push for Green Technology as Mc Cain would want to Drill baby Drill for the 3% of the worlds oil that the U.S. has and also build nuke power plants.
