On U.S. energy policy…

What we’re doing now – our energy policy now – is frankly absurd. Killing off our own energy sector. Shutting down our own production. Shutting down our own discovery. Shutting down our own drilling. For a host of reasons, chief among them a hoax. Global warming, and pollution. Making ourselves vulnerable to world supplies, political circumstances, price variations, all of these things. We’re not acting like a super-power. We’re acting like a needy, defensive, no-confidence little child. Because we don’t have the right strategies. We don’t think enough of ourselves as a country, at the highest levels.
