Im an automation engineer and pretty much know it all. So you can imagine all the people that get mad at me. For all you bible thumpers, Im atheist which is shocking to even more people. Then I jumped with glee when my hero Trump finally decided to save our country. Boy do I have a legion of haters now. I been to 6 of Trumps rallies and go to bars now just to get into bar fights. Its great exorcise. About the only people that love me any more are the ones I save with my engineering skills. Those folks cant get enough of me and beg me to not talk about anything else. Being an engineer, Im a black and white kind of person. Either it works or it dont. And thats how I see things. I heard about this Elio years ago and was highly unimpressed. After all, I can mix up fiberglass over a foam shape that looks like Elio and stick a Geo motor in it. But I kept watching and over the years they have made considerable revisions. Now I look at it from my engineering perspective and I really like what he has done. I can no longer build something like this in my garage any cheaper than he is selling it. But I have been seeing the haters everywhere. They are vicious like the Elio went and stole all their babies. Its as senseless as all the Trump hate. In fact I wouldnt be surprised if the disappointed Trump haters are trying to find vindication by trying to hate Elio into failure. Now normally you would say "who cares about haters". But the reality is that the noise that haters make can scare away the very thing Elio needs. Investors. They dont know if Elio is to be the next big hit. They have to look around and see what people are saying. So if the hate is as loud as the internet has been making it, investors could hear the haters more than they hear the fans. I have been in enough argument with the haters to know that they really dont need much of a reason to hate. You can debunk their reasons completely and they will still hate. So its just war and Elio has to find a way to win the war. So Elio has a very nice car design but he could still fail to find the funding he needs. And thats unfair and a shame. but thats life in America. Trump found a way to win despite unbelievable hate. So Elio can too. But if he does win, then we fans will get a pretty nice little car for dirt cheap. Hopefully the momentum builds up from there and lots of other folk will go crazy to keep sales rolling in. Then the haters will be buying them too. So there you go. Me in a nutshell. Its a great car idea, but I only plucked down $100 because the hate is just so loud and cant be ignored. Even the Louisiana Sheriff was spewing a ton of totally ignorant hate on this car.
