Okay, I’m just thinking out loud here. But go with me. The next presidential election, let’s elect some oil man from Texas. You know, a guy who is cozy with the Saudis. Then––just to be on the safe side––we’ll invade some oil-rich, middle eastern country. Some sort of preemptive strike. Are you with me so far? We’ll throw our weight around as the last remaining Superpower… and badda bing, badda boom: a record drop in the price of oil. Sound like a plan? Right? A no-brainer.

    The story here is about the fall of the dollar. Notice the same day the price of oil goes up the value of the dollar goes down. We don’t have just too little oil or too much demand from China. We have too many dollars worth less and less every day. Its a Demupublican problem that neither wants to fix.
