    "Sadly our enconomy is dependent on fossil fuels and until we change that fact we are forced to hold our noses and deal with the Saudis." - Jane In January 1981, the newly elected Reagan Administration was determined to terminate all efforts at self-sufficiency, conservation, and technology to eliminate US oil dependency. This was done to reward those corporations which had funded the election of Ronald Reagan. The Republican Party, also beholden to those same corporations made it a major goal - right up to this day - of ensuring that there would be no conservation, no fuel-efficiency, nothing but utter US dependence upon Arab Oil. In simple terms Jane, the folks you have spent your life keeping in power are guilty of making the US utterly dependent upon the good will of the House of Saud. It is the neo-cons who control the Republican party who have turned America into a depraved and degenerate state Jane. They have wasted almost 30 years which we could have used to save ourselves.
