New poll: 83% of Americans have no intent to buy an EV

How many of you are old enough to remember when we told the government to take this metric system and shove it? It was literally the one positive thing that happened during the Carter administration. I can tell you for certain that in the 1970s, nobody knew we already didn’t have a country anymore. More like 1913, if you really want to know. More on that later. For now, let’s enjoy a little polling. Be sure to click the link to get the dirty deets. I love the smell of fossil fuels in the morning.

  1. Ha! 54 years young and I totally remember the “get metric” campaign in the late 70s, coinciding with the long gas lines, inflation, “turn your thermostats down,” and the Iran hostage crisis. So long Jimmiiieee!!!

    Only a complete slave to the NWO propaganda would consider an electric car considering the probability, not possibility, of some type of an EMP attack.

    1. Other factors far more likely than EMP, but still requiring presuming propaganda over finding and following facts include (in no particular order): high upfront cost, very high insurance cost, exceedingly high maintenance cost, poor range, long charge time, poor availability of roadside chargers, unreliable winter performance, proven fire risk, proven environmental hazard, proven child exploitation in production of required materials …

      1. Throw in poor resale value, and the uncertainty of bank financing for used EVs with their original batteries. On a $100K Model S, it’s probably worth the $22K battery replacement (assuming the car’s been garage kept and accident free). On a $40K Model 3 or Model Y (the ubiquitous bubble cars you see all over the road), the $15K battery replacement isn’t nearly as likely. Those cars have only been on the road for about four years now, so the wave of battery failures and resale collapse is right around the corner.

        Every time I see one of these cars with their puffy cloud license plates getting free access to the HOV lane (the HOV lane is as big of a lie as the EVs are), it’s hard to not think of the $7500 of my money — via “tax credits” that prop up this non-viable experiment — whizzing by and not be a little irritated.

  2. I read that the US adopted the metric system at the federal level in 1866 but never enforced it.
    To me, the meter is just too long and the kilometer just too short.

  3. EV aren’t worth their hype if you ask me… Every winter you now hear about Teslas freezing up and becoming useless in the cold.

    For what it’s worth, America is actually on the metric system today, it’s just “under the surface.”

    Not only is the military on the metric system, to be in line with our allies over seas, but if you were to look it up in United States Code, all our units of measurement are defined by the metric system.

    ie: A mile is no longer “legally” defined as 5,280 feet, but as exactly 1,609.344 meters.

    Also look in any grocery store, all the “amounts” on everything includes a metric unit as well in parenthesis.

    1. The grocery store is an excellent example. This is something we are so used to that we no longer
      really notice it.
      “Dual measurements” are in some cases the result of items being sold in different countries.
      US sewing patterns have had English and metric yardage requirements on pattern envelopes for decades.
      Some include instructions in English, Spanish and French, so one printing can be sold in America, Mexico and
