    My car is paid off and it would be a mistake to buy another car, but I do dream about owning a Leaf.

    Every time I fill my tank I feel guilty and hypocritical.

    But I don't have a garage so any infrastructure for recharging would either have to be outside or require I build a shelter for it.  I'd also have to get a curb cut so I could pull my car onto my property.

    And I have to go further into debt.

    I still think about it.  A cute little ladybug of a car, because it's green and clean.

    So that being beyond my means, I can't come close to this one.  But it is about 50% of the cost of previous Tesla models, isn't it?  Or 33%?

    So maybe the next model will actually be affordable.  Maybe if enough well-to-do liberals go for it, the price will continue to fall.

    If I buy another car, it will likely be the last car I buy, so I'd like it to be as earth-friendly as possible.  And this is a beautiful car.  And I'm not a complete douchebag . . .

    Why is it that a 3% tax increase for the wealthy is considered "socialism" and an 8% wage cut for the middle class is "doing your part"? MartyM
