With Obama getting elected to a 2nd term in office, we have to believe that the wars in the Middle East will continue. Not that Romney would have helped that situation either… This so called “War on Terror” is a complete sham. These wars are for resources. Our government wants what the Middle East has. Fossil fuels and heroin/opiates.
Our economy is so dependent on oil that we can’t imagine a world without it. This dependency is sickening and morally depraved. The auto industry continues to roll out new oil-guzzling autos by the day, while it’s obvious that there are far more efficient and environmentally designs available. With all of the environmental issues we are having, it’s unbelievable that we are not working toward an alternative at a faster rate! The oil companies are in bed with our political system!
We have been trafficking drugs from the Middle East for decades, yet we are fighting “a war on drugs”. A “war for drugs” is more like it. The C.I.A. is knee deep in this.
Why do we have to let a catastrophe be the thing that wakes us from this deep sleep? Obama claims that he wants to work on reducing carbon emissions, but not at the cost of the economy. What good does an economy do for us if our planet is dying? We are going to find out all to soon if we don’t act now.
