When I bought this house, I had a minivan. Kids, etc. There was zero stuff in the single car garage, besides the water heater, washer, dryer. Which is where that stuff lives in this market.
Day 1, I opened the garage door, pulled the minivan in..."OK, this isn't going to work well"

lawnmower, bikes, tools....or the car. One or the other. The cars, being hardshelled devices, survive outside much better than all the other things.

The main problem with all electric cars, so far, is needing to have a personal garage to park it in to recharge. If I live in apartment, I can't charge it. If the garage of my single family home is otherwise taken up with 'stuff', I can't plug it in.

Eventually that issue will change. But for today, how can I buy an all electric if I have no where to plug it in?
Even if it were sold for $300, I still cannot plug it in!

I didn't say we did it worse, the GP did.

Every problem that exists, anywhere in the world, someone will be along quite early in here to proclaim the US did/does it worse.
The OP having to reach back 200+ years to how things were handled during the American Revolution for a comparison simply shows this stupidity in its full glory.

There could be an article here about the nutritional comparisons of boiling grass or tree bark for soup among North Koreans, and some asshat will proudly proclaim conditions in the US are worse.

Often statistics are used as a drunken man uses lampposts -- for support rather than illumination.
