    Indeed. What the U.S. economy needs instead is other forms of stable energy supply besides oil. Especially when the U.S. military is the largest purchaser and consumer of oil in the world.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Most of our oil comes from domestic production or Canada.

    1. oil is fungible
    2. the United States economy is built to be dependent upon a global supply / trade chain.

Hopefully, that would give those nations the impetus to improve the working conditions for their labor force.
    Arbitrary, and easily bypassed and propaganda is easily bought out.

    "Human rights" is a leftist buzzphrase. Someone could say that throwing Tariffs up reduces "Human rights", creates victims, and you bleeding hearts would relent, basically nothing would change if it were up to you types.

    The two sides need to be eradicated from power in their current form. The GOP no longer stands for anything conservative, the democrats are the same for liberalism. I am not saying the two parties are exactly the same, but it is two sides of the same coin. The coin needs replacing, not merely flipping it from heads to tails.

    Natural Gas---and we are sitting on one of the world's largest natural supplies of it. Order I believe is Russia, Canada, US.
    Its cleaner, but its a hell of lot more expensive to transport---you have to get it to subzero temps to turn it to a liquid then change it back and keep it at pressure for use in vehicles.

    Work out the safety issues and it may change how a lot of things are done, who knows. It already passed Coal in domestic energy production, an important milestone.
