  •  No cut the military in half (4+ / 0-)

    first. They are they biggest consumers of fuel in the US. We can eliminate our overseas bases, and cut our military in half, and still spend ten times what anybody else spends on their military.

    But for those who like 55, I suggest a drive over to Nevada, then up to Montana at 55, and see how you like it...

    55 is an outdated benchmark- cars are now much more aerodynamic and do almost as well at 65 as they do at 55. My car has a real time mpg readout on it, and there is scant difference between the two speeds, and in some cases, like mild hills or extended flats, 65 is better, due to momentum.

    Nothing in the world is more dangerous than a sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.--- Martin Luther King, Jr
