The oil from ANWR is useless right now and 10-15 years down the road.
Don't put words into my mouth either, no where did I say that since the republicans are in office that everything that happened after 2002 is their fault.
What is their fault is the fact that they are doing NOTHING to fix these problems.
Its all politicians but you see it the most in the party that is in control. No new legislation to allow the building of new refineries, no nothing at all.
I agree 100% with what V6stang007 said, we are a reactive nation. We wait till the problem is already happened and then act. We waited till the problem was in our home terroritory in WWII, we waited till we lost 3k people on 9/11 and now we have waited to long in NO and cost the lives of thousands of people and billions upon billions of dollars WE DO NOT HAVE.
We are headed straight for a recession and a bad one unless the government gets their **** together.
