you are right its on the world market, we will with the Canadians will increase supply.....then what will happen??? OPEC will decrease supply and keep prices up. Do not be naive and think oil is sold on the free market, there can never be a free market when cartels like OPEC can price fix....
Sorry, but it has nothing to do with it....go to other countries, where ever there are poor uneducated people there is a drug problem which leads to violence.....check out eastern europe, the slums of Indian and China....race has nothing to do with it....

i agree there will be some job creation, not sure how many permanent jobs will be created to maintain the pipeline. The pipeline was introduced as a way for us to reduce the cost of energy and become energy independent. It will do very little of either. I still believe the only reason to build this pipeline is to keep Russia in check, if other positive outcomes happen that is great, but I wouldn't expect much.
Race has very little to do with it. blacks just happen to be poor and living in areas where there is a higher drug rate. Usually selling drugs is an easy way to make money, its very appealing to poor, uneducated youths. The best thing to do is to make drugs unprofitable, most of the other issues will fix themselves.
legalizing all drugs are the best thing to do. If someone is dumb enough to inject H into themselves let them, they can deal with the consequences. This will drastically reduce drug related violence.
agreed, gun violence is only a symptom of a larger drug problem. They need to find a better way to deal with drugs that will automatically solve the gun issue.

The pipeline will not significantly reduce the price of oil, the only thing that would do that is to bust up the price fixers OPEC. The only reason we should build it is to keep Europe supplied if things get worst with Russia. Building this pipeline is a MUST to keep Russia in check.
Gun laws will never work as long as there is a demand and a lot of this demand comes from drug related criminals. Most of the violence that is caused by guns in Chicago are probably caused by drugs. The only way to reduce gun violence is to look at the cause and that cause is drugs. Adding more laws that restrict guns are pointless....
it will take time to recover from something like that. it would be at least 12-16 years for the parties to be able to really compete in a national election....
I don't know about extinct, but there will be a lot of changes....There is a good chance that the party might get split into 2, one side would be the traditional GOP and the other would be the tea party...
