I think it is wise and clever that 'merca chooses to consume the cheap foreign oil first. Once it is all gone the arabs can go back to stealing each other`s wives and goats.
I'd happily vote for a Republican as long as they left the religion at home and were intelligent and articulate. I like the republican platform (minus the "morality" police and environmental neglect). We just haven`t had anyone actually lead by it in a long time.
I get pissed off when republicans run on fiscal responsibility and then jack up the debt without reprisals, but as soon as a democrat does it the people that were silent a couple years ago lose their mind. (Tea Party)
"Well @HG and @markust: THEN you have to extrapolate Obama's debt up to the NEXT fiscal year-end"
I`m perfectly fine with that. Totally. As long as you say "By the end of Obama`s fiscal leadership the national debt will be...." I`m cool. It will be a metric s.hit ton of cash. I could sit on here and b.itch about what obama has done all day. But I get caught up having to correct right wing spin the whole time. You probably think I`m partisan as hell, but I`m not. I disagree with a lot of what Obama has done.
"Well, it's more important to "win" as a political party then to "fix" something as a political party." Well said @HalfPintRoo! That`s the truth of the matter. "Angilion- From the television, we`re told we have enough of our own oil for many years!!!!" Y`all do, it`s true! BUT it`s more expensive overall, so it makes less profits for the Oil Companies to do so. And like @HG said: use "their" oil while it`s cheap, then "our oil" when it`s worth a lot more!
