Thread: Reasons To Not Buy Electric Cars

    Reasons To Not Buy Electric Cars

    I put this in the politics forum because the cowardly democrats are pushing America to buy electric cars.
    My reason to NOT buy and electric car? FREEDOM. This is yet another totalitarian move to control people...you and I.
    Freedom? Yes. How are you going to travel state to state? With several long recharges. Want to take kids and pets while you wait for your vehicle to recharge?

    That's my main reason.

    Electric cars are NOT green. The power generated to charge an electric car is coming off a grid that is either nuclear-powered or fossil fuel powered. Solar and wind power is a very small part of the overall grid.

    On the other hand - hybrids (gas/electric) are great! I went to the far western U.P., a trip of over 550 miles on about 10-11 gallons of gas. These cars aren't plugged in - but generate power to a battery which powers the car in specific circumstances.

    Another hidden feature of the Tesla is that it is controlled by the mothership. They can watch you (in car cameras), listen to you (in car microphones), track you, turn off your car, lock your car, etc., oh by the way, they are the only ones who can fix your car if it breaks. It's really a nightmare.

    They want everyone and everything on the grid, smart meters, carbon tracking, ability to monitor and turn off and on at their behest.

    Yep, this the WEF agenda in motion. Klaus Schwab is trying to control us with his puppets in government.

    I do like the concept of hybrid, better yet are hydrogen powered, super clean, no tracking.

    If you have an iphone, google can reveal everywhere you have been. Quite a history they have on us.

    Yeah, the buy here, pay here guys have that tool. The biggest reason for repos, non-payment is lack of cash to repair vehicle, most can handle the payment but if the car breaks ... nope.
