    Oil infrastructure is not free either. Replacing the oil infrastructure would 1) put far more than tens of thousands of Americans to work and 2) generate hundreds of billion in revenue (because you aren't spending the hundreds of billions for "foreign oil").

    To be honest, we'll have to do both anyhow. Continue drilling for "domestic oil" (because we'll need it for other things besides burning it) and also replacing oil burning energy plants with alternative energy plants.

    Both create jobs and revenue for the US. Sound like a good plan?

    new domestic energy R&D and infrastructure construction would do both. we would have the long term cost savings of avoiding wars over increasingly scarce resources. and we would no longer be beholden to foreign powers which happen to be sitting on fossil fuels.

    it's a matter of national security, and developing our long term energy strategy should be a top national priority.
