If you don’t have an understanding about what is going on with oil and prices, you need to get in tune. It is important to make a reasonable evaluation on where you stand on this issue and how you will act accordingly. Here is a very good article to cover most bases.
I find this a golden opportunity to start re-organizing some of these “unfriendly” nations. When you look at what compromises OPEC, you will see that they aren’t “friends” of democracy. It also greatly affects Russia, who has been doing some heinous crimes against a sovereign nation. It is a very complex issue when it concerns trades and investments among nations. I look at what outcomes can come to pass for North America. Here is some of what I see:
–becoming energy independent
–ridding ourselves of the ethanol boondoggle
–bringing about cheaper and better goods thru more in-house
–further strengthening of our economy
–nations forced to move to a freer economy
–socialism crumbling under its own, unsustained weight
–reducing the risk for others to make war
This is just quick and brief. I see so many good outcomes from this. Much of this has to come about in conjunction with stopping ALL immigration, which at this time shows no need and necessity, as well as securing the borders (yes, even the one with Canada). Cheaper goods is not the answer when quality is required. Funding war and terrorism is not the answer when we can enhance pay scale and quality of life. Too many win-win scenarios here but I’m sure there will be rain on my parade from not thinking too far out. All that can be resolved without much pain. Energy fuels a society. Energy also prompts and promotes invention and ingenuity. The problem here is getting those in charge to take initiative and make it happen. Some corporations need to be forced in-line rather than being coddled and catered to. One government institution needs to be reigned in to make it work……that would be the EPA. The one organization that hurts our economy.
