    While the Obama Administration continues to set policy intended at redistributing wealth, not only in America - but worldwide, conservatives in both the public and private sectors continue to be as innovative as possible to keep the nation from falling into the type of collapse many of the Democrats are looking for. It's interesting to note that the solution mentioned here by T. Boone Pickens regarding our energy crisis is what is Constitutionally required anyway (ie the harvesting is taking place at the state level):

    The development of new sources of energy – at the state level – will be the big idea for 2013.

    Whether there is a grand bargain, a petite bargain, or no bargain at all on ways to decrease the national debt and avoid the fiscal cliff, one thing is clear: The American spirit will not be dampened by the inability of elected and appointed officials in Washington to get the economy moving.

    Power, in the form of innovation and ideas, will shift from the nation’s capital to the capitals of the 50 states. Governors do not have the authority to print money and 43 states have laws that require Governors to submit budgets that are in balance, so states are looking for ways to generate revenue without raising taxes which would only serve to drive businesses out.

    The 21st century gold rush is shale containing oil or natural gas. Huge deposits have been discovered around the nation, instantly adding jobs – not just at the wellhead, but in the towns that surround the field where downtowns long abandoned are sprouting new stores to sell shoes, cut hair, and supply groceries to the oil and gas community.
