Economists predict $5.00 gasoline by the end of the year. With the ongoing turmoil in the Mid-East and the OPEC cartel continuing to gouge the United States--making ONE TRILLION DOLLARS this year alone--$5.00 per gallon gasoline will most likely be here by the Memorial Day holiday. Investing in new energy development, oil, natural gas, coal, biomass, and renewables, would unleash a wave of new employment and economic expansion. By focusing on cutting energy imports from OPEC, that is cutting our dependency of imports on the 30% of the energy we import from OPEC, we would not only become energy secure, but we would reduce military and foreign policy threats from Islamic terrorism and shore our economic muscle.
What could you do for ONE TRILLION DOLLARS...become energy secure? I think so. We should demand it from our leaders and expect no less. If they fail to respond, we should vote out the current leaders with elect individuals to office who will do what needs to be done--make America energy secure and break the back of the OPEC cartel.
