Auto Alternatives: There are smaller, more efficient auto manufacturers that can replace the Big-3. For every $1 Billion dollars the federal government gives or guarantees for the Big-2 (soon to be 3), BG Automotive Group, could build 40 assembly plants (located in 40 separate cities where employment is needed), hiring 12,000 employees, and producing 600,000- 100% electric vehicles. We can save the jobs and save us from our dependence on foreign oil. The latter figures are for EACH $1 Billion dollar allocation. We would also be requiring more batteries/battery packs than the North American battery industry could produce. We would also require 600,000 U.S. made motors, computer systems, etc. to operate the vehicles. 100% of our components under the hood, including the power system, is made in America and assembled by Americans.

We have a huge demand, domestic and foreign for our electric vehicles, but do not have the funds required to meet the overall demand.

The system sucks

Name another country in the world than hands out free money to moochers and illegals?

Youre better off living in an apartment these days.

Have a heart attack w/o insurance and they take your house that you worked for your whole life.

If youre a deadbeat and have a heartattack they wont take anything because theres nothing to take.

Kinda defeats the purpose of working.
