It is ridiculous that our elected officials in our federal government keep talking about "reducing America's dependence on foreign oil". We have had this oil problem since 1973. Why is it that none of our elected officials have had enough vision to help move America (and the world) past this crisis?

The answer to many of our problems can be found if we use a little of one of our greatest assets, which is good old American Ingenuity. A monopoly always drives up prices, and lowers the level of service. Oil, also known as fossil fuels, currently has a (near) monopoly on our fuel and heating concerns. Why? Because we as Americans have allowed it to become such a monster. But we can put an end to that, and greatly change the world for the better. Abandon the use of fossil fuels completely.

We can create an alternative, or even the threat of an alternative, to oil, both foreign and domestic. We can take our most abundant resource, which is sea water, and convert it to fuel, for both heating and propulsion. Imagine using aircraft fuel and fuel for cars, cheaply generated from the waters of our oceans. What would happen to the cost of fossil fuels then? How would that help our economy? How many new jobs for Americans would that create, both directly and indirectly? How rich would that person become if they were the first to successfully develop the conversion process? What sort of boost would it be to our economy if America developed such cheap and abundant energy? Since America could go to the Moon in less than ten years, then an American inventor or chemist can develop a process to convert sea water to a potent fuel in less than four years, making it available to American industry.
