Prius owner since March 15, 2004. Traded in my Lexus LS400. I'm not a tree-hugger. I just believe that our addiction to oil threatens our freedom and way of life. Our petro-dollars are directly funding some of the most dangerous governments in the world, many of whom support terrorists. It is our patriotic duty to eliminate our dependence on foreign oil, and until our leaders begin behaving like they really have our interests at heart, we each need to make small sacrifices for the greater good. It turns out my Prius is roomy, quiet, fast, nimble, and requires very little feeding (averaging 43 miles-per-gallon) and I drive with a lead foot! Stop procrastinating and start demonstrating your true patriotism.
