Fuel of the past? Dont you mean present? Mr .President, fuel of the past, really? I think you are confused, the Jetson-mobiles are the future, maybe, but for now, gasoline gets us to work, diesel powers the delivery of our goods to the stores and runs the farm equipment that produces our food! Stop campaigning and do your job!
This means oil, not batteries, or fairy dust is the fuel of our past, present, and future, at least until the “alternatives” become viable options.
Causing the prices to “necessarily skyrocket” is just stupid! America needs to get to work, eat, and live in the present, the future will take care of itself, as must we take care of the here and now! Stealing our ability to do so, to force the future to happen the way and when YOU and your progressive buddies want is at best reckless, at worst treasonous!
America is hurting, paying $20 for $5 worth of gas is killing us! Is that your goal? Do you really want to destroy us by making it cost more to get to work than we get paid, thus forcing us on the government tit just to stay alive?
History shows us that when a country needs something that another has, wars start, then, winner takes all, but, in this “Progressive” era, you are trying to force the world to play nice and share, by spreading our wealth around. The problem is that only the USA, Germany, and maybe a few other western countries have anything to share, the rest of the world is either our enemy, or is only taking, and the progressives tell us they are entitled because we stole “it” from them. Is that the plan?
What would be the outcome if we take all the goodies in the western (Free) world and divide it up equally? America is now ruined and broke, our enemies are even stronger, that’s what! Did this fantasy actually help bring the others up? No! Look at how we have been “nation building” instead of ass-kicking, is the world any safer? No, they just have new stuff to turn back into rubble!
Back to the topic, and to tie it all together. By spreading OUR wealth, destroying OUR ability to grow, and causing oil prices to go up, to pay for your utopian dreams of fairy-dust powered cars, free solar electricity, and wind farms etc., will only turn us into a broke third world country, at best, and dependent on the government at worst, because only a “one-world” government could provide for us all, right? Is this not the long-term plan, because we all know fairy-dust is not real!
