Do we in the US really want to be independent of foreign oil, or is that just one of the ubiquitous talking points politicians always use?
Politicians always seem to talk, talk, and talk more about getting off foreign oil, and cutting back on the use of oil all together. They never make a wholehearted effort to do so. If the government put as much effort into it as they did for the Apollo program to reach the moon, do you think we would not have a viable, affordable, working electric car by 2013? The feet dragging, finger pointing, and all but sandbagging approach the government seem to use suggest they don’t really care to be free of foreign oil. Are they saying so because they are trying to bamboozle and bull shit the people, so they can stay in office, or get a higher one?
