Do you agree that our freedom & democracy is better than living in a country ruled by a dictator? Would you be happy living in the Middle East, with ALL that oil under the ground, and having your President replaced by a dictator? For example, decades ago when a democratically-elected leader of Iran was pulled out and replaced by the Shah of Iran, we got a good price on that oil from Iran. When the Shah of Iran was nearing the end of his life, he didn’t stay in his own country as most of our leaders would. Instead he traveled to America where he soon died of his illness. As another example, Saudi Arabia is No. 6 on the list of dictatorships in our world. They get most of their weapons from countries like ours and we get a low price for the oil from under their ground. Could this be provoking that sad response that we call “terrorism”? Instead of sending our boys and girls overseas in the military to get that good price on their oil, why not just switch to solar or wind power? My friend may sound like a comedian but his response was “Big Oil says we’ll have SOLAR when they can put a METER on the sun!” More from them is at pausenergy.org.
Consider the Human Renewable Energy Measure, HREM, and make it equivalent to what every one on earth needs: education, food and shelter. Don’t let the bullys and gangs continue to enslave future generations as they have done for the past thousands of years. By getting off that oil from under their ground, not only could we stop provoking such “terrorism,” this could also put an end to Climate Change on our planet.
