    Please sign this petition on ipetitions

    Call for legislation to enforce a 5 - 10 year rollover to make it completely illegal to operate and/or sell an internal combustion engine.

    Everyday people feeling they have no option pay good money to support the pollution of our air and poisoning of our seas. We must take away this choice from all people to ensure our health. After a state passes an internal combustion ban rollover plan electric car companies and transportation developers will be invited to the area and taxes will be increased for fuel and normal car sales until it is made illegal. These tax funds may support the development of low emission public transportation.

    To think, these people self-style themselves as defenders of "choice".

    Well, yeah, as long as you "choose" what they dictate.

    Red Barchetta
    Rush

    My uncle has a country place that no one knows about
    He says it used to be a farm before the Motor Law
    And on Sundays, I elude the eyes, hop the turbine freight
    To far outside the wire, where my white-haired uncle waits

    Jump to the ground as the turbo slows to cross the borderline
    Then run like the wind as excitement shivers up and down my spine
    But down in his barn, my uncle preserved for me an old machine
    For fifty odd years, to keep it as new has been his dearest dream

    I strip away the old debris that hides a shining car
    A brilliant red Barchetta from a better vanished time
    Ooh, fired up the willing engine, responding with a roar
    Tires spitting gravel, I commit my weekly crime

    Wind in my hair
    Shifting and drifting
    Mechanical music
    Adrenaline surge

    Well-weathered leather, hot metal and oil
    The scented country air
    Sunlight on chrome, the blur of the landscape
    Every nerve aware

    Suddenly ahead of me across the mountainside
    A gleaming alloy air car shoots towards me, two lanes wide
    I spin around with shrieking tires to run the deadly race
    It goes screaming through the valley as another joins the chase

    Drive like the wind, straining the limits of machine and man
    Laughing out loud with fear and hope, I've got a desperate plan
    At the one lane bridge, I leave the giants stranded at the riverside
    Race back to the farm to dream with my uncle at the fireside

    Yes... the watemellons, in their far-sighterd and deep understanding of the technology involved, want to replace the internal combustion engine with the coal-fired steam plant.

    I like the defense of personal liberty. However americans are not allowed to assualt or rape each other. Buring oil assualts my lungs and pooring it into the sea (and drilling for it) is a rape of the earth. Like that scary prison guy forcefully drilling you for his own feeling of empowerment.

    Good thing that the widespread use of the ICE-powered automobile does wither of these things, your melodrama and hyperbole not withstanding.

    Hydroelectric wave and river generated electricity, wind and solar electricity. Electric cars. Before you scoff and cock off your hard nosed dogmas and beliefs consider electric cars are getting a lot better. Do your research before you discount these ideas.
