The United States of America is sitting on a tremendous amount of oil reserves, and an unbeliveable amount of coal. However the idiots in Washington refuse to let us process and sell our own resources and force us to get resources from countries who hate America and everything America stands for. Mining for coal and drilling would employ thousands and thousands and thousands of Americans, but that does not matter to the idiots running the country. Instead they have chosen to appease environmental extremists who would prefer we live in the stone ages. The environmental dictators would rather we ride bicycles to work and live in caves with not electricity.
Other countries are allowed to build nuclear power plants. The United States even shared the technology with countries, but the we do not get to build nuclear power plants here in the United States. The liberals in Washington have made it too difficult and expensive to build nuclear power plants here in the United States. The federal and state governments also make it very difficult and expensive to build coal or natural gas power plants. China puts a new coal power plant on line every week, but new power plants are fought tooth and nail here in the United States. Instead of building new power plants, Congress chose to outlaw the incandescent light bulb.
The liberals have made the United States a laughing stock to the rest of the world. Other countries think it is absolutely ridiculous that the United States does not utilize the resources in our country. They also think it is ridiculous that our leaders have destroyed jobs, the economy, while subsidizing unprofitable experiments like electric cars.
