Middle East Instability Is Dangerous

As we see popular uprisings in the Middle East, we should be very concerned. Hopefully, some of these Arab countries will end up as democracies, or there is a pretty good chance that they could end up as evil regimes as occurred in Iran after their revolution. There is no tradition of Western democracy in the Arab world since all of these countries have been ruled by dictators for centuries. Iraq is a democracy only because the United States made it so. However, that story is not yet over. Time will tell if democracy in Iraq will prevail. Our country needs to plan for the worst and hope for the best for two very important reasons, Israel and Oil.

The United States has been a staunch supporter of Israel since its founding in 1948. In fact, it is fair to say that without our support and tacit protection, there probably would not be an Israel today. That said, the Israeli people have built a truly beautiful and remarkable first world country despite being surrounded by enemies and the need to fight several wars since their founding to protect their nation. There is poverty, misery and a lack of freedom all over the Middle East throughout the Arab and Persian world, yet Israel is a stable democracy with a relatively high standard of living based on free market capitalism. And, the entire country really should be a World Heritage Site since the foundation for three major religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, is in Israel.

The United States can never falter in our support of Israel because they are our only stable ally in the region that shares our values based on Judeo Christian traditions. As such, if Israel decides to become a nuclear power, which is justifiable to maintain the balance of power in the region, we should be there to help. And or, the United States should make it clear that the US nuclear umbrella shields Israel too in order to make it very clear to Iran that an attack upon Israel is an attack upon the United States.

Though Socialist President Obama lives in an energy dream world filled with wind mills, the fact is that since the environmental wackos in the United States have to date prevented our country from becoming energy independent, we will be dependent on Oil from the Middle East for years to come. As such, we must do what is necessary to protect those supply lines no matter who comes to power in the Middle East. However, it should be clear by the uprising in the Middle East that the instability there is dangerous to our country and our economy. We are likely to see gas at $5 a gallon in the next few years and the cost of all energy will go up because President Obama and the other Socialists in our government refuse to allow the United States to fully develop all the energy sources in our country.

What we are seeing in the Middle East today should be a wake up call to all Americans. It is time for a 50 year plan to make the United States fully energy independent, which means developing nuclear, natural gas, clean coal, oil shale, drilling for more oil in the US and finally working on wind, solar and bio fuels that are not economically feasible today. We have to do it all to insure our standard of living and economic security. President Obama and the other Socialists in office refuse to do any of this, which is another reason we must sweep these characters out of office in 2012 and 2014. Socialists are simply a clear and present danger to our national security.

As such, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real ENERGY, education and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only was to restore economic growth and job creation in our country.

Most important, we must take back our country in 2012 and 2014 by electing Conservatives who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, public employee unions, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country, which includes pursuing real energy independence to maintain our standard of living and great nation status. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
