Our association with Saudi Arabia is scandalous, and has tainted our claims about supporting democracy in the world. It is a black spot on the nation that we not only support a monarchy, but one of the most vicious and primitive ones on the planet, as well as the source of most of the world's terrorism.
Of course, Jimmy Carter understood the problem and started a program 40 years ago to wean us off imported oil (including fracking, a research project he started). If we had followed through with that, we would be free of that ugly dictatorship in SA today.
But of course the idiot Reagan ended all that. What a boob.
