If we had a brain we would be using our vast reserves of coal and OIL to control China....and Russia.
We'd also form our own version of OPEC I'd call NOPEC ,North American oil producing economic countries composed of the US Canada, Mexico, GB and Norway and drive OPEC back into the stone age.
I guarentee you Iran wouldn't be producing any nuclear weapons with Oil at $25 a bbl.
That's how I see it too Billy, we will have the opportunity to dictate the rules for a change, even force china to quit playing with it's currency and level the playing field.
We have a huge advantage coming our way, if two things don't happen, one, the left doesn't block us along the way, and two, the GOP doesn't cave in and appease it away.
Both scenarios have been the track record for the last 40+ years.
That should be the GOP motto:
"We will, we will Appease You!
