The question asked was "Should we as consumers decrease the demand for oil in order to bring the supply up and hopefully bring prices down?"
I have a much better way to bring gas prices down. Deport the 30-plus million illegal aliens living here in America, bring our troops home and put them on the Mexican border and let them actually protect our borders.
You get rid of 30 million people, that's 30 million people who aren't using gas or buying petroleum products. You would also cut down on other ailments that America suffers from.
We cannot continue to let everybody who wants to come here, come here. It is already projected that whites will be a minority in the country their forefathers fought and bled to build by 2042. If our leaders in government would actually stay true to their oath of office to "Protect our country from foreign invaders," America would probably not be in this situation right now.
Do you notice that neither "candidate" is discussing probably the most important issue of our generation (immigration)? I blame the government. If there was any justice in this country, all our representatives would be tried and punished for their treason to this country.
Thomas Jefferson said "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." As far as I'm concerned, that's all we have in government is tyrants. We need common sense solutions to real problems like this gas shortage and immigration.
Too bad no matter how you vote you'll just get four more years of the same old crud.
