Some people think Obama is bright, intelligent and an enlightened visionary. He is taking us in a direction that will achieve his dream and vision, which is to transform America into a European-style system.
What does Europe have that we do not? Government-controlled national health care, $8 per gallon gas, an immigration policy where people of Muslim faith have flooded their region, and France embracing Sharia law as acceptable. Europe is sophisticated, modern and enlightened. Obama wants to rid our country of that image of independent thinkers and doers and embrace central government control.
It should come as no surprise that Secretary Chu was selected to shape America's energy policy. Obama's dream is closer to reality then some might think: On March 21, 2011, Secretary Steven Chu said, "... the price of gasoline over the long haul should be expected to go up just because ... we must give up much of what makes our lives American."
In 2008, Steven Chu stated that the United States needed to increase the price of gas to that of Europe — or higher. He stated he personally preferred gas to be around $10 per gallon.
Mr. Chu has called for gradually ramping up gasoline taxes over 15 years to coax consumers into buying more efficient cars and living in neighborhoods closer to work.
