    Something to consider

    Usually I would keep something like this to myself, but after thinking it kinda scary. I just simply want to discuss this topic. This is my opinion and forgive me if I am making a fool out of myself.

    As you may know of what happened in Egypt, same thing is happening in Libya. The neighbor country of Egypt. Now this got me thinking, what if lets say a domino effect occurs and this happens, affecting other countries, such as Arabia, Nigeria etc. This would eventually erupt war. That would mean the production of fuel and oil would slow down. By that happening gas prices in the USA would skyrocket to 4-7 dollars a gallon, leaving a lot of people without cars. Maybe even Bus Routes would go out of business.

    If you are still following me keep reading.

    As you already know China is the most powerful country in the world. Eventually Americas economy would collapse making China even more powerful and wealthier. If I am right I would pack your bags tonight and take the first flight to China ( sarcasm ). But you get the point

    I dont think there would ever really be just ONE superpower, ruling over the world. It would take a collapse of more than just America for that to happen. But alas, politics are of no concern to me.

    The major producer of Oil is Venezuela, so if China gets a Internal Civil War or maybe more.
    USA could Just WIN!

    Albertan oil sands can provide a lot of oil. Just takes a lot of money to refine it.

    America has a shit ton of oil too..
    the problem is getting it the fuck out of the ground.
    costs loads of money that we don't have,
    Environmental fags would QQ, and then we got Wallstreet.
    If we hit a mother load, Gas prices drop, oil prices drop and the greedy fat cats lose out.
