We have gas prices going through the roof and speculators making millions off regular Americans.
With all the extra money that must be spent on gas for daily living, there is little left toward achieving the American dream. The obvious impact is that the economy suffers, resulting in fewer jobs and fewer taxes collected, and the deficit continues to grow exponentially. What was President Obama thinking when he fanned the flames of revolution in the Middle East? Lower gas prices, perhaps? We have gotten just the opposite.
We seem to have some of the thickest-headed people ever in positions of leadership. They occupy both the White House and Congress. We Americans are poorly served by those who we elected. We need change to survive.
