    What needs doing is to open up all the energy this country has. Mostly exporting it.
    OIL, natgas. We have more oil in the baccen then in saudi arabia. Exporting this comodity alone
    would put us as the major exporter of the world and this country would reap the benefits, as do the middle east countries . Right now its estimated that we will be there in 2020.
