    wholeheartedly agree.

    Big fan. Replace all fossil-fuel plants with nukes.

    Never mind that we're energy independent when it comes to generating electricity.

    Obama and his communist far lst leaning followers, defenders, and republicans who are in office only to further their own agendas are domestic enemies as described in the in most oaths of office, including the one I took. I point out to you regardless of the party you claim as your own that if you tool an oath it has nothing in it that says it's limited to to the time you are either in office or in the military. It's for life.
    The War in Afghanistan at the outset had a noble goal at it's core to route out and destroy Al Qaeda and bring Osama Bin Laden to justice. Now at the risk of being attacked again by people claiming to be Patriotic Americans I think it's typical of most politicians to take what they can to further their appearance back home so they can stay in office another term and continue to sit back and allow good Americans to be killed trying to do the job they take seriously.
    It's up to us to see that right now a Communist has taken over the White House and is doing everything possible to destroy this Nation. I give a damn how much you think you have the right to get even for the mistakes of the Bush era stop and use you brain and read the history of this Nation and what it is supposed to stand for and not let dreams of Neo National Socialists take everything form everyone. A short study of history will show you that what sounds good to people at the outset always ends in failure and destruction not only of the Nation involved but in the lives of people who help to bring these Leftists to power in the end. Today so many young idealistic uneducated who believe in the redistribution of of wealth have no idea what they are doing or that what they are wishing for will eliminate their ability to protest and have ideas as they do and most all other rights they enjoy.
    I agree with much of your post, but you are preaching to deaf ears or the choir.

    In attaining energy independence which will take some time according to even the most optimistic of green advocates, shouldn't we exploit everything at our disposal to attain independence quickly?
