preferred methodology for achieving his goals, then I shudder to think of what may be next.
The fact that he can say things such as this and still be popular says two things to me. It illustrates how poorly the American people are educated on

2) Are desperate because their oil sells for much less than what they wished for.
3) They have to turn to the people and convince them to lower consumption, recruit the average consumer to fight for their war.
4) When time is right and competition gets eliminated or pushed aside prices will hit the ceiling again and being GREEN will be once more out of
