In My Own Best Interest
Rather than purchasing an automobile, take the upcoming election. An election really gets down to the nitty gritty of "in my own best interest". People we elect will carve out public policy for endless years to come and only through your vote can you anticipate you voice being heard. If female, voting for someone who has supported women exclusionary policies in the past may indicate these same reactionary policies will follow that politician, if elected. Similar tests are being bandied about in debate atmosphere over : race, ethnicity, gender, gayness, young, old, sick, poor,..., etc.
Truly, "I my own best interest" is seated most importantly in elections. Choose those you vote for with full knowledge that they will hold in their hands the rise or fall of future generations. Steady is the hand which steers the ship through torrid storms so chose wisely.
