You obviously have no idea how the viting system works in the US. Its a democratic REPUBLIC, that means electoral votes actually decide the presidency. Since you dont even know how the voting system works, you have no credibility in any political discussion.
BTW, to "cure" the dependency on crude oil, we should switch to biodiesel. Diesel is a $1 trillion a year industry in the US. If the oil companies didnt have that demand, they would have to lower their prices, theoretically.
