I believe the high gas prices are largly due to the war in Iraq. They spend more money than any person in this country with their tanks and hummers
and every vehicle they employ in the service. War is nothing more then something to make money with the blood of soldiers and innocents alike. The
more they spend there, the more we have to spend here. If there is a shortage, where are the "No gas here" signs. In the 1970's when there was a
shortage/embargo, many stations actually ran out. Today the average person drives more, there are more people and many more cars on the road. Why do
the gas shipments keep coming in if there is a supply shortage?
To me it makes no sense.
I am a dishwasher, I have been for almost ten years. When people run out of knives and forks, there is no question, you either wash more, or you get
lots of complaints. But one will always happen. The point is, not one single place I have seen anywhere, has run out of gas anywhere. The supply has
not changed and the demand has no place to go but down, most people can't afford these prices, but the shipments keep coming right on schedule. Does
this not strike anybody else as odd, at all.
The war on terror is a perfect reason to keep fuel prices high. Instead of going to war to "Protect our way of life" We went to war to destroy it,
and we were all told after 9/11 to go shopping, spend our money and completely ignore the facts of the matter, the government, Democrats and
Republicans alike talk a big game, but in the end they are the different sides of the same coin of tyrannical oppression against us all.
I ask people, when will you stand up for yourselves. The economy of fear is killing us all slowly, you keep the mind weak and scared. We are all
broke, we all suffer equally each time we put gas in our cars, we can change and adapt all we like but no matter how much we do, it won't change the
people with the power over us all. How far will they push us, how much will we take.
For example. Way, way back in the colonial times, does anybody remember why the people got so upset. It was because the British taxed everything and
forced people to pay. Taxation without representation was one of the key issues. Independence was the result of that. The country is shattered, the
founding laws are almost erased with fine print and endless words that, in short, can make you the bad guy for any reason.
Gas prices are an important issue, but largely a selfish one. They are designed to make people think "Why me." and not "How can I fix this for the
good of the people." I believe the only way to make oil prices go down is not going to be found in personal change, but in the over all will of the
people. Instead of complaining and discussing economics and wasting time like that, start organizations, get like minded people together and stand up
against the prices.
It does not say I the person...it says We the people. Together we can do anything, change anything and fix our country. But to do that we have to wake
up, there are no easy ways about this. We cannot trust our "Elected" leaders to save us. We must save ourselves, there is no other way to fix this
problem. We have to find our free will and stop thinking of the current situation as "Temporary" There is no more time to be wasted. The Enviroment
is fine, the Terrorists...if there ever were any to begin with is debated...are beaten.
America has a policy not to enforce the laws it already has, but to add new ones constantly to every aspect of our lives. They do the same thing with
situations. If something isnt broken, fix it until it is. In short.
The change in gas prices will not start with "You" It will begin with the collective "Us" This is our country, lets take it back from the people
who have stolen our very freedoms right from under us.
The right to life, liberty and the persuit of happiness...I would persue happiness, but the gas costs too much. Save yourself, save each other.
