Don't Drive for Democracy 

An idea has been rattling around in my head: if Americans really want to stick it to the terrorists, the dictators, the extremist regimes around the world, we need to use less oil. What would happen if, for just one day, as many people as could didn't drive their cars? How much less oil would we use?

I think a Don't Drive for Democracy Day would make people realize that they don't need to use their cars to get everywhere. It would strike fear into the hearts of corrupt regimes that use oil money to intimidate. And it would be good for the environment to boot.
