The effort to reduce American dependence on foreign imported oil is perhaps one of the most highly-discussed topics of the energy industry. Various solutions have been proposed by a host of politicians, policymakers and executives. But even when electric vehicles are proposed as an alternative to oil-powered cars, the issue of batteries and minerals is raised. Although

Yes we can if we get some smart people in washington, but not with the current powers.

No...because the 'powers that be' prefer to keep the American people as well as the entire world...off balance. Because we all know for a fact we can drill offshore for our own oil. But the 'system' uses 'environmental watchdogs' to prevent that from ever happening. Plus, to prove they are right...every once in a while they put a drunk captain at the helm of an oil tanker, and dump some oil in the Gulf. So now they can say- "See? ...We told you so!"...This is all done to ensure we are entangled in Middle East problems...and to make us all pay high prices at the pump!!

 

What?....Who?...Me?... .....What'd I do?..... Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of crap by the clean end.

There is no question that America must get off the resources of our enemies.  There was a book written by one Anderson called "Fiasco" that was written some time ago concerning the entire situation of our beginning to depend on foreign oil via Nixon to the creation of OPEC and its' consequences on America also the agreements made with the Middle East that tied the hands of presidents after Nixon.

Prophetic to say the least and horrifying to say the most.  We must break the chain and I believe they know it.

The lines are drawn in the sand, the American people are alive and awake, well most anyway. Kick it and call names, Let the Freedom Ring

We have the capacity to do it as there is plenty  of wind for wind turbine energy,we are now making OPEC nervous with our "fracking" of oil as it is usually a cleaner oil thus quicker to refine. We need to clean out the idiots in Wa. that stop the growth of the afore mentioned. They tied our hands to other countries by borrowing too much money to cover their sorry choices and business blunders,so we are being held hostage to our borrowers thanks to that. Big govt. is bad business for America's growth.
