John McCain wants to "drill,drill,drill". That is what his experience tells him to do. McCain's whole life it has been "drilled,drilled,drilled" into McCain's head that oil is important as water to the life of this country. That oil is worth killing over.
Barack Obama realizes with his experience that crude oil is exactly that ..CRUDE. Barack believes that our children will look back on oil as a fuel that is no longer used. They will look back on the last 100 years with regret over the wars that were fought and the pollution created over a fuel that is no longer used. McCain and Palin with their close ties to big oil want to prevent that. They are holding back progress. They just don't get it.
The world has met McCain and Palins before. Hundreds of years ago the McCain's and Palins of the world told us that the sun revolved around the earth. They told us that if you sailed west your ship would eventually fall off the earth. If they were listened to, they would have prevented the great American dream of today. If we listen to the McCains and the Palins of the world today, we will allow them to prevent the great American dream of tomorrow.
