While I do think Gbaji makes a relatively decent point about the high expense of your vehicle, you are absolutely correct that cars in this day and age are pretty much a necessity. If you live somewhere without public transportation anyways
Having a car means you're making poor choices with your money since you could sell it and live off the profits and savings.
On the other hand, public transportation is a tool of liberal indoctrination and social engineering and true freedom only comes from living in communities where you need a car to get anywhere.
Damned if ya do, damned if ya don't. At least the liberals let you get groceries, I guess be it via food stamps or bus routes.
