    Like it or not, the Constitution is not the end-all, be-all of everything I wish people would stop pretending that it is.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    The worst thing to happen to green energy was that it was politicized by a ideology that doesn't regard honesty as a character trait of any value.

    I have, time now for my government to do its part. Middle East wars to keep the oil flowing is no longer an acceptable US energy policy.

    issues of national security are not best addressed solely by the private sector. i'm more than willing to pay more taxes in order to fund research, though.

    This isn't a national security issue in the pure sense of the term. However, the fact that the private sector won't take the ball and run with it goes to show big a waste of time it is to persue the technology.

    That's why we should exploit our own natural resources. You want to stop using Middle Eastern oil? Let's start using ours. Not only is available now, but it's actually a viable option and doesn't require the government to permanently propr up the industry.

    energy is the lifeblood of the economy, and we've spent significant national resources maintaining our access to it.

    no, it just goes to show that replacing oil isn't immediately profitable.

    Which is all the more reason that it shouldn't be under total government control.

    Hence the reason it's a waste of taxpayer dollars to actively persue it.
