This video is propaganda for a failed ideology. Oil and the value of the dollar come at the price of our military. Going back to a free market won't change that. Keeping our energy sources oil based will cripple us.
You can look forward to a war we can't afford with Iran as they have recently started selling their oil in currencies other than the U.S. dollar.

As far as oil goes, we can sustain ourselves but choose not to - therefore we choose to lean on other countries, which then may involve the military.

It's not a free market issue - it's a choice issue.

What it comes down to is Americans can't or won't trust other Americans to drill and develop oil products and not kill everyone environmentally based on lies about global warming. The technology is always improving and it can be done without doing major damage.

Oil is the ONLY viable source of energy that can be used to support the country.

How about that - No wonder Obama refuses to let the U.S. explore and develop our own supply of Oil

Shale oil, not crude oil. It takes enormous amounts of water and energy to process.

"The production of shale oil has been hindered because of technical difficulties and costs.[42] In March 2011, the United States Bureau of Land Management called into question proposals in the U.S. for commercial operations, stating that "There are no economically viable ways yet known to extract and process oil shale for commercial purposes."

You want to know what will cause America to fail? The destruction of our rights and turning U.S. citizens against fellow U.S. citizens. End the lies. End the divisiveness. Or stand back and let America fail.
