    SO MR. MC CAIN, WANT'S TO END OUR OIL DEPENDENCE. THIS SHOULD MEAN WE FIND DIFFERENT FUEL SOURCES, NOT TO DRILL FOR MORE OIL.
    The government of Japan is lending strong support to the fuel cell technology. In fact, it is already pledged $309 million per year for research into fuel cell development. It also plans that are least, 25% of all Japanese homes will be hydrogen powered by 2020.
    SO WHAT IS YOUR PLAN MR. MC CAIN ????

    Energy independence should NEVER be the goal. ECON LITERATE people should have MAXIMIZING US GROWTH as a goal instead.
    IN ADDITION, US energy independence is unachieveble EVEN at a huge cost today.

    McCain is the only way to go.
    With two [2] wars on going ,
    All of Africa practicing some form or another of war profiteering
    REPUBLICANS have and are an `INTRINSIC Mind Set `OF ~~WAR' : they have always been HAWKISH!..
    OIL and Fuel Economy, a "" SMOKE" screen in one sense, a diversion of another sense.
    The!! : Nineteen Thirty Nine {1939} WORLDS-FAIR promised the WORLD : FIFTY [50] and One Hundred[100] Mile per gallon cars to My Parents , Grand-Parents and Uncles..
    FALSE HOPE PIPE DREAMLIESSUBTERFUGE `WE` {oil-business etc} JUST want to jack the price as high as we like for as long as we like.
    Than there is always the= NEFARIOUS = Illegal aspect of all business that are in todays terminology: == ""EMBEDDED"" !!.
    They are not going away any time soon. Least of all with BILLIONS upon BILLIONS being BLINDLY THROWN AT TWO[2] WAR!.
    YA! think That after nearly Seventy[70] years of {PROMISING} high mile per gallon cars that they would deliver : ????; I seriously doubt they ever will.
    Alas: The manure has a NEW and IMPROVED high TECH. delivery,Internet, TV, Radio[wait radio was availabel-tv was new ].
    The AUTO industry, Big Oil, any thing to do with there money,
    Are not going to deliver any thing that is not acceptable mileage, base on there bottom line.,
    Asking for Battery MONEY: well I could hear the MOANING and GROANING while off line and the power out{internet off}.
    Keep dream[ing] : welcome to Americas the LAND of dreams and how fast they can be diminished and wiped off the face of the earth if it[dream]!: is not of the PREVAILING MONETARY MINDSETS!.

    Politics as usual. I'm in the early 40's and i've heard that many times. During the first campaign of Bill Clinton, cars werw suposed to get 80 miles per gallon in 2002 !!! To be independant, we must use energy wisely like the japanese do.
