I loved the ideas of Ron Paul and everything he stood for, grass roots, back to gold and silver, the elimination of unneeded overhead in government.
The withdrawl of troops back to homeland soil. But even though I would have voted for him the country could not handle Ron Pauls ideaology.
Why do I saw such an horrendous thing? The reason I believe this is Peak oil, without oil in constant supply would lead to severe and disastrous
consequences for the county. The biggest example is the Island of Manhattan, a population of 1.6 million people, with absolutely no farm land
Imagine if there were no oil to power the tractors and farm equipment, no oil and gas to transport all of the food from farm land to the cities and
then on across to Manhattan.
Another major issue is the U.S. Superpower over the entire world. We have to remain the king of the hill or else someone else will. What if this
someone else was Iran with the politics of the gang of bloods and a crips or Hitler or Saddam. We must maintain superpower status until the end.
Imagine if our technology wasn't greater than Iraq's, what if they could have taken out our military as easily as we took out theirs with Shock and
Awe. We have to use up all of this oil until it's all gone just to prevent others from becoming king of the hill cause that could be soo much worse
If we say lets conserve energy in America, then someone else will use it in our place and possibly become a real threat. I saw use it until there is
NO MORE LEFT!!!
I got to thinking that hey, I should cut back on my fuel usage and give up some of the things that I enjoy like going out to eat all the time, but
then I came to my senses why? To wait until later when I will have NO OPTION to do these things that I love cause the gas is $7.00 a gallon and food
is well more than I can afford? Lets use it while we can and before someone else does!
And what of new scientific advances that could alleviate Peak oil. We need more time to prepare with Solar Wind, Hydrogen and every other kind of
power to remain king of the hill in the future.
Unfortunately, we need someone in government who will lie to us about bringing the troops home when what we really need is to secure as much oil as
possible!! IF WE DON'T USE THE OIL TO STAY KING OF THE HILL THEN SOMEONE ELSE WILL!!! IF WE DON'T USE IT SOMEONE ELSE WILL!!
