The Oligarchy Times, Volume 2, Issue 2
In the past, I have made suggestions for the President that he was highly unlikely to act upon. I have a few very realistic actions that President Obama could take that will take care of several issues and truly change the world:
1) His dropping pole results
2) Fuel costs in the US
3) The loss of the US’s position as a true super power
5) Our impotent threats against Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine
If he would drive getting rid of ridiculous EPA prohibitions against fracking and northern drilling and push for the passing of the XL pipeline, we could take a large portion of that oil, sell it to European nations dependent on Russian oil at a rate far lower than Russia’s, and bankrupt the Russian economy by removing that income stream. We could win that “war” without deploying a single soldier or firing a single bullet. Fuel costs in the US would drop, we’d have a viable economic weapon to diplomiatically impact the world for good, tens of thousands of jobs would be created, and Russia would be forced to stop these invasions that are based on its stabilizing its major income stream. It could happen.
