It's Not a War on Cars

First thing's first. It's not a war at all. Can't we come up with a better rhetorical flourish than declaring war on something? George Carlin called us out on that 20 years ago and we're still doing it.

But it's not about taking your cars away from you. Honestly, it isn't.
It's about this:
And this:
And about this:
And this:
And also this:
And this, too:
Even more importantly, it's about giving the people like this:
And like this:
And like this:
The ability to do things like this:
And go do this:
And maybe even once in a while do this:
Just like you do. And, hey, there's something in it for you, too, y'know.
You. (Probably.)
You see, the real goal here is to give everyone - everyone - choice. When you walk out your front door, to go do whatever it is you're going to do, you should have the choice to get there like this:
Or using this:
Or taking this:
Or riding this:
Or, yes, even getting in this:
That's all it's about. Now what's so wrong with that?
