Perhaps the Citroen Picasso is the most unique.


The only two cars that list that appeal to me in the least are the 370Z
and E-Class coupe. The majority of the those are tin-can-on-wheels FWD
econoboxes that the Europeans are basically legislated into buying due
to absurd fuel taxation.


I'm assuming you are an American, right? Because the Europeans would
think you are driven into ridiculous SUVs by your also ridiculous
gasoline prices.

The country is broke and you can't raise the gasoline taxes, at least
to pay for the last wars?


Are you joking. If we had to actually pay up front for these wars via
taxes there would be even less public support for them.

Any politician that proposed raising taxes to pay for wars would be
thrown out of office.

Despite the lies of the tea baggers, even Obama cut taxes significantly,
though in this case the cuts did not go to the super-wealthy.

I'd assume you need a Hitler to force the people to fight a war and
pay for it.

People nowadays has gotten too comfortable about the war.

SNIP after here

It appears to me that FDR presided over a tax increase that took effect
for 1940, and got re-elected to preside over further tax increases.

Then again, the tax increase was before Pearl Harbor...
