Uncle dave, this was all so avoidable. A hefty increase in domestic production and refining capacity would have seen us safely through the crisis and the intervening years toward the development of some viable alternatives.

No policy. No progress. No WH Leadership. We have had an oil man in the WH for 7 years+ ... so where's the oil policy? We gotta get the basics straight. Domestic Oil, Nuclear and Coal are the energy tripod we need in place now ... and we don't have. Now it will take another 5-10 years. Hopefully by the time a sane program is in place, our GNP will not be the same as Liberia's.

The reason we went to to foreign oil in the frst place was cost ... not domestic shortages ... and then because of the cheapness of the foreign stuff, we didn't develop new sources here.

We need a leader who will shoot a Democrat a day until domestic production and refining are at a point where we can use them to at least temper world oil prices. A FIVE_YEAR PLAN.
