Something hit me this week...
Energy and the resulting industry is the "NEW FUTURE".
Like computers, cell phones or even locomotives this new frontier is going to change the world, the "market place" and fortunes.
America has always been at the forefront of new technologies since modernity.
This is a huge reason why the USA has been so prosperous and powerful for so long.
So far America has not jumped onto this band wagon in any meaningful way.
Meanwhile countries like CHINA, JAPAN, GERMANY, INDIA, AUSTRALIA and RUSSIA all have a considerable head start on US. At some point mankind is going
to move past OIL and the push has already begun. As a nation we all bitch and moan about high gas prices, yet fail to recognize the real problem.
IF THE UNITED STATES DOES NOT FUND THIS NEW INDUSTRY IN A BIG WAY, IT WILL ONLY BE A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE OUR POWER, WEALTH AND INFLUENCE
The amount of money that will be generated by this new industry will be staggering.
If you think about it everything that is currently plugged in to a wall or filled with fuel will be effected. It is possible (if not likely) the
resulting research might bring about a quantum leap in scientific understanding and mastery. The country or countries that lay claim to this, the
science, production and patents will be jettisoned to the front of the global pack...
So to rap it all up if Mccain is elected and he does not FUND the hell out of this, well I fear for our countries future.
You think about it... what if America did not lead the way in automobiles or microprocessors or nuclear devices???
Watch your TVs and I'm sure you will notice how much money is being spent on this GREEN issue with AD bucks alone. This represents companies vying
for a stake in this virgin industry - positioning if you will.
Tax cuts, wars, socialized medicine blah blah blah.
THIS IS the future and if a PRESIDENT Mccain does not realize the upmost importance of this,,, well he just can't.
Goodluck to us all!
