It's not just Republicans and Democrats who have led us away from our Constitutional calling to be isolationists and brought us to this juncture. Even the Libertarians are completely blind to this point.
In furtherance of my opinion that all of our problems (the ones you have pointed out as well as the ones I have pointed out and many more on top of those) are ultimately somehow tied to energy matters, I offer this brief 56 minute video which could well be the best and most important 56 minutes you can spend in seeing where we are headed. The guy who created this video was formerly the Vice President of the mega conglomerate Phizer Corporation, until he had a moment of enlightenment that led to dramatic changes in his life and that of his family (for the better). The changes he made to his life are a result of the things he presents in the brief video "course" to be found on the web page I have linked here. This is the super condensed version of what was originally a much larger course that used to take about 3 and a half hours to watch (and which several times i have urged those on this forum to watch, with no feedback afirming that anyone ever actually did so).

My fault. I have never seen it posted. I will watch it for sure. Thanks.
