This is an interesting video of T. Boone Pickens and his ideas about our country’s dependence on foreign oil. I’ve heard alot of criticism against Picken’s push to use natural gas because he has set himself up as the one to profit the most from that idea. But if you think about it, would I rather pay the Middle East OPEC guys or would I rather pay Pickens for my energy that is coming from our own country.
Pay close attention to Pickens’ assessement of the current field of Republican presidential candidates – but then again, Pickens is right that we’ve heard alot about promises of getting off foreign oil but as of the last few decades – nobody has ever even come up with a plan to do so.
Just why do we continue to buy oil from our enemies who obviously play both sides of the fence?
