A Rally Cry Against the Global Elite

Recommended Posts

I don't mean to attack companies, but it gets personal when the "elite 1%" helps to finance these "wars for oil" and refrain from hiring the 99% that need their weekly paychecks to pay for groceries, bills, and transportation-related expenses.

In recent years, the United States has actually been importing more crude oil from Canada than anywhere else, around 200 million barrels annually followed second by Saudi Arabia at around 160 million barrels annually. About 60% of the oil products consumed in the US come from foreign sources and, believe me, I dislike that as much as you. But what's the realistic alternative here, go cold turkey and let entire country grind to a literal halt? The entire country would collapse. I'm all in favor of increased funding and research into the development of oil-free renewable energy sources, but it's going to take decades, if not longer, to develop and transition to something sustainable.
