The Messiah is offering to use my money to guarantee GM's warranties to justify his propping the company up. Outside of the fact that I'm not responsible for the bad choices others make, the Constitution doesn't allow him to do this.
Then there's the fact that I'm not responsible for paying out on GM's warranties. Did you miss that part? If someone bought a GM vehicle, without asking my permission, and GM sinks without a trace, like the Titanic, I don't owe that boy anything. He made the bad choice, it's up to him to suffer the consequences.
That's it. It IS NOT the taxpayers' job to stop every little boy from getting boo-boos when they play on the swings. The government isn't the little boy's mommy, and if the little boy loses some money now and then, too bad. I can't even say I feel sorry for him, cuz I don't. It's bad goverment, not to mention illegal government, to intervene in that matter, and it's immoral as hell, too.
Guess what? There's millions and millions of Americans who voted to deny GM their money. How was that vote made? They didn't buy the over priced crap GM was selling. It's totally wrong to make those people financially responsible for the well being of GM now.
If you say otherwise, you're supporting corporate welfare. That's it. That's all there is to it.
You support it, so don't be shy, you're supporting corporate welfare, be proud and put it on your left bumper.
Toyota cars are "made in America".
So are some BMW's, aren't they?
And Ford...that's "American", ain't it?
The only real reasons they should use in buying cars is the best value for the price their paying and suitability to the task they're putting the vehicle to.
If they choose some other reason, there's no reason they shouldn't bear the costs of being stupid and therefore carrying their own warranty expenses if GM goes belly up, like it should be allowed to.
