Is Green Energy the Only Solution to High Gas Prices?

Obama is clearly off his rocker. He is so out of touch with reality that it should be a concern that he is still in office. The fact that someone can think this is absurd. Yesterday, at a speech in Virginia yesterday, said that the only solution to gas prices in the long term is green energy. Wow. He needs to get a clue. I know that he will do anything that progressives want, but as the president of this country, he needs to look for the facts rather than the ramblings about utopia that the progressives are feeding him.

Why is this so disconcerting to me? Just look at the example. Spain during the last decade invested heavily in all things environmental. They built high speed trains across the country and invested in local transit systems. They also bet a lot of money that the green energy market would take off. This is the model that Obama and his henchmen want to follow so that one day we will all live in a world free of pollution. The problem is, Spain is bankrupt now. Green energy did not take off and the transit systems were not profitable. Obama, though, still has faith in this plan, but he does not realize why Spain failed. Green energy is still not cheap enough. The only way that this method of producing energy gets taken up by the private sector is with subsidies. Right there is your sign that it is not going to work. Maybe some day in the future, but today is not that day.

Furthermore, Obama is completely clueless as to how his policies are driving up gas prices. No, the Middle East is not the only reason that gas prices are rising right now. With an offshore drilling ban, we know that gas prices will have to be higher in the future. We cannot increase supply as we thought we once could. So speculators now will purchase a lot of oil to sell for a profit in the future, and who can blame them? They are basically conserving fuel so that we will have some in the future. Obama is completely ignorant that his own policy is driving this trend. If offshore drilling was allowed again then overnight there would be a precipitous drop in oil prices. It is not greed, it is government, once again, that is causing the problem.

Yet we go along with this man at the helm. We do not think twice about it. This man, who is so out of touch with reality, wields a profusion of power. We the people have power over this office, and we need to put the pressure on him to face the facts. The media glosses over this issue, but we know the truth. Obama is in denial, and it is time we make him realize it.


  1. You may be right Tony but I think Obama and whoever he works for (Soros) know exactly what they are doing. They want to destroy America so they can create their New Wold Order. I really do believe that. So, am I crazy?

  2. I wouldn't say you're crazy, but I look at it a different way. It's almost as if they intentionally try to make freedom and the economic order that goes along with it look bad in order to promote their true world view. I don't know if it's one of those One World Government New World Order Illuminati conspiracies, but I think it is all about advancing their view upon the world.
