What Are All the Geniuses Doing?

I’m curious, why do we have a dependency on gas?

Other countries have cars that get massive gas mileage or its metric counterpart, why don’t we? Other countries have affordable electric cars, why don’t we? Where are all those geniuses that we supposedly have in the US? I know they can make a car that gets good gas mileage, doesn’t pollute and is affordable. Why can’t they do it with all their brain power, but do the car companies and other businesses that use all the gas, make parts and all the other things that go into making a car and maintaining it want it?

The answer is a big NO! We are fighting big business, companies that just got bailed out while the average person has debt flowing out their ears. Maybe if the government had wanted us to get out of a recession and back on our feet they would have given the money straight to the American public and paid off our debt. Instead they pay off businesses that are giving their people large bonuses while the company losses money. Is there something wrong with this picture?

Where are all the geniuses? Where is the government to protect us from those businesses?
