When Kennedy was elected, he challenged the country to put a man on the moon and return him safely to Earth. This created the new world, It was a hinge moment in the history of mankind that connected and divided everything that came before with everything that followed. Why not do it again? We as a county should commit to end the importation of any kind of energy from any foreign sources by the year 2022. Drill our own oil, mine our own coal, gasify coal, harvest Natural gas, use solar, nuclear, wind batteries and all the rest. This would remove us from the world market of energy consumption and undermine the importance of the Middle East in our planning and economy. It would create hundreds of thousands of jobs and create an industrial expansion like the dot com revolution of the 90's. With our demand removed from the world's demand, the price of oil would drop everywhere to prices low enough to spur the economies and open the markets of countries world wide. Our drive to achieve this would catapult us into the front of the energy research fields and we would have the products to manufacture and export to the rest of the world. Just a thought.
