We subsidize the hell outta corn, so why not also subsidize something that's at least innovative?

Like Mr. Musk or not, ya hafta agree that his creations are a sharp spur in the behind of the competitors in every category. Much like his fellow disruptor Steve Jobs and his iPhone, Elon may not have invented the electric car (or solar panels, etc., etc.) but he made them commercially viable and/or appealing.

And too, we bailed out GM (for which taxpayers shelled out $10B or more net) yet until Musk et al came along to rattle them up, they weren't making any strides on electric cars, autonomous driving, etc.

End all subsidies.
