Really? Having crude oil transported on trucks is safer? It creates jobs? Man you guys had to stretch to justify supporting Obama on this one. Let's look at the issue:
1. Canceling the Keystone pipeline is all about driving up fuel prices and forcing the upper classes to buy expensive electric cars and the proletariat to ride public transportation so our movements are easier to keep track of and we have to move to "sustainable" cities to get people out of the country and save the planet.
2. Trucks? We're talking about big tanks of flammable liquid rolling through towns and cities and along high-speed Interstate Highways. We're talking about the risk of large quantities of environmentally damaging materials crossing paths with trucks and cars and bicycles and kids vs a pipeline that transports oil without directly crossing paths with moving vehicles.
3. Rail? Aside from the cancellation being payback for Warren Buffet's railroad company for his statements of support for Obama's soak the rich tax agenda, the problem with rail is the same as with trucks. The risk is much greater when you are moving fuel along public highways than through fixed pipelines.
4. Moving fuel via trucks and rail reduces the amount of fuel that can be moved and drives up the cost of fuel, doing damage to the economy in the process. The big corporate boys aren't going to be hurt by high fuel prices. It will be the poor and middle class that will pay higher prices at the pump, inflated prices at the grocery store and pretty much increasing costs across the board for the little guys you claim to be "helping".
I'd dismiss the whole thing as some wild conspiracy theory, but you guys absolutely keep saying this stuff out loud. You openly talk among yourselves about why you want to increase gas prices, collapse the economy and abolish capitalism. You openly advocate for a socialist America with a big powerful government that feeds us, decides on where we live, what we do for a living and even whether or not our lives are worth preserving. It's all there. You are telling us what you believe. Sadly most of us would rather not believe it. It's that unwillingness to believe that will bring down America as we know it and turn it into a platform that is ripe for the next Joe Stalin, Mao Tse Tung or Hitler. I will never agree with that. I believe what you are telling me and I believe you are wrong for what you are doing.
