Why is it that no one in either of the two major political parties will advocate the only sane and responsible way to lessen and eventually end our dependence on foreign oil?
The answer is that both political parties have sold out to the oil monopolies!
The quickest and surest way to end our dependence on world oil, is to build nation wide "mass transit systems" that will lure americans away from their environment damaging car driving habit!
All other proposals will cause food prices to rise, damage our environment , take too long, and will cause more problems than it will solve.
What is drastically needed that the major political parties wont and are not talking about is "PUBLIC HOUSING" so as to house the rapidly growing population that are homeless and find it impossible to afford the low supply of rental units that are priced so high that it is becoming impossible for the increasing dispossessed to find shelter.
