- The Washington Times - Wednesday, July 1, 2009


Your interesting article “Americans voting with their wheels, study finds” (Page 1, Tuesday) confirmed my suspicions regarding conservatives favoring domestic cars and liberals preferring imports. The first two cars I bought, in the early 1970s, were German imports. Since 1978, I have purchased only domestic cars, primarily because at the time I knew no one who bought American cars and I felt someone should.

Those days are over. I will not buy an Obamamobile. This new enterprise is nothing more than political payback, and I, as a conservative, will not support it. I will only consider Ford (provided it stays private) or non-unionized, American-built Honda and Toyota. It is time for those who brought us into this situation to step up and buy the automobiles they have rejected in the past. Happy motoring.
