I have taken some time to look at all the candidates' energy policies and I just have to do it: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz BORING! Like another student's blog claims - they all say the same darn thing. Sprinkle some important key words here and there; confuse Americans into voting for you.
You may have heard of the rEVOLution surrounding Ron Paul for President in 2008! If you cannot tell, I have freely joined the LOVE parade. The above title is linked to his stance on energy and the environment. Basically he highlights cheaper, cleaner, FREE MARKET energy.
Remember Dr. Webber's venn diagram that is involved with energy, technology, and policy? The three conflicting goals are national security, the economy, and the environment. I think it is true that it is hard to please all three of these. Ron Paul has the right idea in removing big government from the equation. Like editorial writer David Boaz said about the Libertarian view on government, "The challenge is to keep government constrained and limited so that individuals can prosper and solve problems in a free and civil society."
Again, I think I might be dreaming...
