Short term thinkers will always be at the mercy of long term thinkers.
Many corporate powers seek to influence our lives, what THEY want and what is good for you and your family might be very different.
A few examples…
Your Mortgage company wants you to pay them over the next 30 years, if you pay off your home NOW you’ll save over $100,000 in insurance payments.
ExxonMobil does not want you to buy a plug-in or hybrid car. They want you to get a huge SUV with a big V-8 engine. THEY know that if you buy a gas guzzler you’ll spend over $15,000 in fill ups over the life of that vehicle.
A hybrid car will use about $5,000 in gas, a plug-in vehicle even less. I spend $15 per WEEK to gas up my Volt, I used to spent $60 a week when I drove a V-6 Avalon.
The electric company doesn’t want you to find out the numbers on rooftop solar for your home, THEY do not want you to know that your electric bill could be less than $10 per month. They want you to think there is a huge upfront cost, when there is NOT!
Duke energy wants you to fear solar, even though the technology is proven.
Your credit card company wants you to use plastic for everything, and carry a balance forever. And if you’re late on a payment? They’ll jack up your interest rate to 20%. It’s all there, in the microscopic print on your contract.
Your cable company want you to keep paying $70 or $100 per month for 500 channels that you’ll never watch. They don’t want you to get Netflix for $8 a month.
You don’t have to participate in what THEY want. You can chop up your credit cards and pay off the balances forever. You can get more efficient, there are many inexpensive used hybrid and plug-in vehicles for sale in the used car market.
I get over 100 miles per gallon in my Volt…
You can go solar, get your electric bill down to peanuts and pay off your panels in the next 5 or 6 years!
You CAN pay off your home while you are still young! I’m 43 and on the path to pay off my home before I turn 45 years old, WHILE I have 2 kids in college!
You can take control, THEY can go to hell.
