We need to continue to drill for oil so that we can become "Independent"
We need build pipelines to distribute this oil to various locations through the country so that we can become "Independent"
We need to build more oil refineries throughout various stratetgic locations in the US to process this oil so that we can become "Independent" and drastically reduce consumer prices.
We need to build more "nuclear plants" throughout various strategic in the US so that we can become "Independent"
Now there will be those of you who claim - we don't need no stinking oil drilling and need to get off using oil.
Well I say to you - get rid of all your consumer products and walk around naked because everything you own has a "oil tag" associated with the process of either producing or delivering it.
Now once we do this - we can cut all relations with any oil producing company and tell them to "go to hell".
We can then focus on working towards refining green energy and within the next 30 years we should be completely energy independent.
Now, for those of you who say why not do it now, I say to you - we are but its slow in making the transformation.
By doing what I have suggested will give this country "independence" which is what this country was founded on and we shall no longer be a "slave" to high consumer prices because we are shackeled to whatever the market dictates.
Also we definietly need to "raise the energy margin requirements" to stop artifically inflating oil prices - and that can be done with oil that is produced within our borders by regulation.
