I’m still looking for our next president. I’m not satisfied with the current crop of candidates. They have no vision, they haven’t offered any new ideas for getting us to energy independence within less than 20 years, or for reducing the reach of government into our lives in the myriad negative ways that I touch upon in the third Nonpartisan Presidential Debate.
The question isn’t whether we can drill enough to get more oil from our own land, to get gas prices to come down. It’s this: do you trust the oil cartels to set the price lower even if we have more oil? The amount we consume, the amount we have on our own soil, isn’t going to make a dent.
