Since at least the 90's the Clintons/the Democrats have tried to bring about legislation to wean us of dependence on OIL, and reduce polution, but time and again have been held back by the conservative republicans who have wanted to stick with the status quo. Most often the republicans have stopped progressive ideas/efforts to continue backing the priorities of big oil concerns and interests. Conservatives thereby have missed probably the most important opportunity of our time, to facilitate historicly important changes and direction for our country and our world. This opportunity to effect this important new direction is now in the hands of the progressive democrats/Obama who has stated his goal to promote a project to move away from dependence on oil,in a similar level of importance as Kennedy did when he promoted the Space Program. Obama, wants to increase auto mileage, move the auto industry toward new fuels, new sources of power for autos, electric generation and improved public transportation to name a few. ( check out this subject on Obamas site) The setting of big oil interests/priorities as most prominent by the tired old/outdated, big oil greats bush/cheney have led to our country dangerously coming to a brink of disaster because of ignoring the probabilities they were warned of due to the peak oil situation we are now in. They ignored for the sake of big oil/big business profits, the need and opportunity to move away from these old priorities, to avoid economic troubles, resource wars/conflicts, global warming and many other negative results. OBAMA HAS STATED HIS INTENT TO FOSTER THESE CHANGES, along with progressives in this country and around the world. THIS COULD BE THE DEFINING MOMENT IN HISTORY TO POSITIVELY IMPROVE OUR COUNTRY's FORTUNES and the WORLDS as a whole !!!! THIS IS ONE AREA OF "CHANGE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN" Its a change that can greatly improve our lot in this country, and unlike the naysayers against change (the conservative republicans) this change can end up being a huge positive force for our economy, making these changes can only improve and stimulate growth, after an initial changeover period facilitated by government policies as proposed by Obama. THINK ABOUT THIS !!! IT MAY BE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT REASONS TO VOTE FOR OBAMA and against the conservative mindset to "STAY THE COURSE" SEND THESE TIRED OLD NEOCON OIL GOONS HOME FOR GOOD!!!
