Take a look at ANY country, more debt is more problems. So why do we
allow our governments more debt? Selfishness, greed, denial, ignorance?

"San Franciscos tight streets, high parking rates and expensive gasoline dont lend themselves well to the kind of large vehicles that make up the bulk of sales for the Big Three, so the appeal of smaller imports is not surprising. Still, the departure of the American brands comes at a time when Ford, GM and Chrysler are in the process of reinventing themselves with more of the compact, fuel-efficient offerings that are popular in dense urban centers. California is the nations largest market for automobiles, and San Francisco is its fourth largest city, with a population of over 800,000 residents."
California is usually ahead of the rest of the US so this may show what is about to happen slowly all over the US.
This kind of trend has been in process in most of the rest of the world for many years.
