Oil and terror
Cal Thomas has an interesting op-ed in which he describes how some of the money we spend to fill our gas tanks is being used to fund terrorists.
One of many excellent books on the subject is "Terror, Incorporated: Tracing the Dollars Behind the Terror Networks" by economist Loretta Napoleoni. Napoleoni follows the money earned from the sale of oil and shows how it ends up funding terrorism and terrorist centers. Recipients of some of the money include mosques and Islamic schools in America, at least some of which are now, or can be expected to teach, incite, train and equip jihadists to again do unto us what they did on 9/11, and what they carry out regularly in Israel and Iraq.
He then goes on to make a good argument for this country to achieve energy independence.
I can't think of a better reason.
