I personally think what tesla is doing is so important to the country and the world as a whole. Here is a list why: 1. No more oil money going to mid-east therefore they will have to modernize in order to stay rich(I'm talking about the princes and leaders over there) 2. Less influence to oil industry. 3. Less money to fund terrorist groups. 4. Less pollution in cities and for the world. 5. Slow down global warming. 6. Cheaper energy Think about all the wasted energy in a Internal combustion car that can be used for other things now. If tesla takes off, and thats up to us, a lot of huge problems will be helped imho. What do you think?
