Ahem...

Due to fracking the U.S. is now almost completely energy independent and is projected to reach full independence in the coming years. What would this mean for world? Essentially the U.S. would be left off a leash.

Corrected...

Longtime, safe energy independence will come with core power, and even for the much longer time, windpower and sunpower.

But if it saves some OPEC countries from being bombed, so be it, I'm for fracking.

Economic isolationism is the best way to implode your own economy, and the world's as a consequence. There is no more place for mercantilism or barrier creations in the world. The last nation that does these kind of policies is North Korea, go see how well they're doing.

Even though we can say that an isolationist US would be a good thing, we don't need to go that far, we just need a non-screwed up US. Stop invading other countries and putting your noses into others internal affairs, and that's good enough.


That being said, energetic independence is good, but maybe try and be 100 percent clean energies, that'd be even better. No long term dependence and the world as a hole won't be destroyed bc of ppl burning fuel.

Cut off foreign trade with the rest of the world? Hah, Hoover and FDR did that, and that aggravated the Great Depression while being a big cause of the Second World War.

Unless you mean not attacking China in the China sea, and not attacking Somali Coast Militias. Then you won't have much of a problem.

YES! Spend billions on safe energy resources when millions of Americans live in poverty and can't eat a real meal! AMAZING! While we're at it, remove Veteran funding too! They're gonna die soon anyway right! Increase welfare with the new money because that always works!

Veterans should be honored whether drafted or not. They performed a service to their nation like none other. God bless them.

If you're gonna spend hundreds of billions of dollars in something, it's better to spend it in clean energies/healthcare/education than wasting it in the military. That's a fact.

Americans don't live like folk in Syria or the Congo. They aren't poor.

Military veterans did a disservice to Americans by serving the government.

of course americans who live in poverty aren't "poor" when you compare them to uncivilized third world shitholes...

that doesnt mean that they aren't living shitty lives... they still starve and live in slummy conditions and often get sick

they are poor in relation to other well-off people in first world countries

I heard a good phrase to say what happens when Americans say they're poor: it's rich folk who don't have any problems, so they make up their own (f-ing) problems. There will always be someone in Poverty, but in Kinshasa, there are folk starving to death, and in New York, there are not. That's the big difference, right there.

To people who say the least us should stop their empire and military spending, the importan parts of the military are the ones that don't fight which literally keep world trade going if the U.S. Went out of its military bases and stopped patrolling the seas there would be a depression

The US doesn't improve trade by having it's empire. It diminishes it. There's no place where America frees up trade.

Without the USA, China and Russia would conquer Asia and the Americas with their pseudocommunism and totalitarianism. Europe could fill in the USA but they'd be in another damn cold war with Unsoviet Russia

The Persian gulf would run regardless of the US being there, Iran isn't going to block off all trade their including for themselves. Russia attacking Kyiv is not a potential in a situation where America doesn't support a anti-Russian regime pointed straight at Russia's gut.
