Buy A Ford

Not only because they're better than GM, but because they seem to be able to stay afloat without the government's bailout money. And they're doing it by being smart. Don't spend more than you can afford. Weird concept, I know. But this does make one wonder something. Why hasn't the government forced auto manufactures to take federal bailout money, whether the need it or not, like they did the banks? You'd think they'd want to control them as well.

Perhaps that the auto industry isn't compelled to take money/controlled is an indicator that you are mistaken if you think the gov's main desire is to impose a bizarre quasi-socialist structure on the US economy. Maybe (just a guess) the gov is interested in supporting the auto industry with the minimum of intervention. By 'minimum of intervention' I mean what the gov thinks will work based on available info and basic principles they subscribe to... Maybe, just maybe the government isn't as 'red' as you fear they are?
