Here, here, I am totally with you on that, Karlsweldt, but I do not think enough people are.
I think the vast majority of people here know where you and I stand but I just do not think that enough people, especially on the left, quite realize how important oil is in this modern age. Oil is not just used for "fuels", meaning what makes a machine operate but oil is actually used for sooooo many other things that I do not think this world will be able to be without it for a very long time. So many things such as plastic are made from byproducts of oil that even if all cars and machines were converted to solar power, we still would rely on oil for major things such as plastics. Think about how many things are made from plastics such as the keyboards that people type on, the cell phones that so many people cannot seem to live without to the bottles our babies drink out of and sooo much more.
On top of that, if the US starts letting even one person/nation push us around it will start a landslide that Americans have never experienced.
So, Democrats/Obama, do we stand up for ourselves or not? This is going to be one of the biggest times of being close to major war since the 1950's.
