Re: The 2012 Election Thread
The real problem with this is that the oil companies pretty much have us by the balls. If we take anything away from them, Americans will feel the pain at the pump. But if we give something to the oil compaines, nobody will see a price drop. It's a one way street and it works like this because we need oil, and if gas costed $25/gallon, people would still buy it.
I know reducing our dependance on oil is easier said than done, bit it is what needs to be done.
As another election draws near; the G.O.P. are yet again filled with a stupid confidence that the they will win the White House. What they don't realize about people like Trump, Carson, and Cruz is that their rhetoric only resonates within an echo chamber, but not the American people. They live in an illusion of falsehood and distorted truth and only seek information and opinions that confirm these beliefs and instantly reject anything that contradicts them because only their opinions matter. Their notion of freedom is freedom for themselves and those alike to them, but not the rest of the country which has changed.
These are the reasons why the G.O.P is set to lose in 2016. And when that happens, rest assured that they will have myriad of conspiracy theories blaming everyone and everything from the liberal media, to Oprah, to welfare moms, and pretty much everyone but their own disgusting selves.
