You slippery Politicians!

A close friend asked me why gas costs so much right now.

My first answer is probably the first answer of every American. Because of the turmoil in the mideast right now.

....and that is right. Gas costs so much because we accept the high gas prices...because we think they should be high because of the turmoil in the mid-east.

But put down your anger. Its not the Arab's faults that gas cost alot. They are merely following what we are selling them: freedom. Freedom to partake in supply and demand.

But our politicans are playing to our fears. They have to, it keeps them rich and in power.

I am here to use their words against them. Click here, than come back to my blog.

The MidEast produces a combined 21.76 million barrels of oil a day. wow!....don't say wow. North America produces 15.66....which is not too far off. In fact Non-Opec countries produced 33.81 million barrels a day! The U.S., Canada, and Russia produce more than all the Mid East countries combined.....and you know Russia needs money, and thus will sell it cheaply.

Arabs are not the problem.

YOU are the problem for not voting for better leaders. Americans are the problem. We are why gas prices are high. We're too stupid to realize they shouldn't be high!

Vote Independant. They don't have the power to let us continue to get raped by our elected officials.

I agree we have some slippery politicians and some of the most powerful rats do benefit when Oil companies are doing well financially. Let me throw out some more numbers here. The US consumes 20 Million barrels of oil a day (as of 2003). The US also imports 11 Million barrels of oil per day which is more than we produce. We get the highest percentage of imported oil from the Middle East which accounts for 20% of our imports. Check out a map on where else we get out oil from at

But if you do the math 20% x 11 Million barrels, that is 2.2 of 20 million or roughly 10% of oil we consume daily that we rely on from the middle east. Is that enough oil to justify price hikes based on certain OPEC nations threats or actions?

Hell, lets just rob Canada. We can trade mayonaise for oil. That's a fair trade and they're silly enough to accept that deal.

....and trade $30 a barrel with Russia.....they need the money.

I am just disgusted that our country terrorizes us, while they say they are protecting us from terrorists. They nned to get off the terror platform. I am more terrorized by my government than I am all Arabs combined.

"They nned to get off the terror platform."

The leaders of this country always need some enemy, real or imagined, to keep the citizens in line. The War on Terrorism, just like every other war before it, allows powerful people to push their own agendas. Whoever benefits the most from a crime is most likely to have committed it. Ask yourself, who benefits from high gas prices? Who ultimately benefits from the war on terrorism? Obviously, it is NOT the average American citizen. No, there are many insidous things happening to our nation and the majority of citizens are either too lazy, dumb, or scared to figure it out on their own. Take 9/11...there is ample evidence from world-renowned scholars (see if you don't believe me) that it was an inside job. Who has benefited from 9/11? I realize I have seriously digressed from the topic of your original post but we need to educate ourselves instead of listening to gov't propraganda that we are being bombarded with on a daily basis.
