Could you imagine if they only used electric cars up north when their grid failed? It's been a great concern in the U.S. over the last 20 years. Maggie and I lived through Hurrican Hugo and was without power for 17 days. Glad we had gas vehicles (and gas chainsaws).
I'm not saying I'm against electric vehicles, some of the Tesla's look so cool, and I would have no problem owning one, but I don't think I'd own two. I'd want a back-up should power go out for an extended period of time.
When Dems talk about ending the consumption of oil, we'd better keep in mind that so goes our leverage and our safety net. We absolutely could not control our own destiny. Just another bright idea by the Democratic Party.
Side note: Did you hear that the crazies in the Democratic Party are pushing for federal prisons to be emptied within 10 years. They think we need to handle criminals as basically mental cases which I definitely believe a large amount suffer from various mental illnesses but their legislation is a blanket release, not just non-violent offenders.
As I've stated before, I'm more worried about their constituents than even them (i.e. AOC, Talib, etc.), Who are these people? Where did they learn this non-sensical philosophy? It would be entertaining watching a Netflix documentary on the day in the life of their constituents; the genre of course would be Documentary/Horrors.
The Squad is a group of six Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives. It was initially composed of four women elected in the 2018 United States House of Representatives elections: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. They have since been joined by Jamaal Bowman of New York and Cori Bush of Missouri following the 2020 United States House of Representatives elections. The group is well known for being among the most progressive and left-wing members of the United States Congress.
