Remember when democrats used to always say oil companies were the reason America wasn't energy independent? Turn out dems were the reason?

and are campaigning on making us dependent on terrorist oil again.

Update:

skeptic- from the 1960's until President Trump made us energy independent.

Update 2:

Skeptic- you can research it if you need to.

    No, it does not turn out that the "dems" were the reason. Economics are the reason. Our oil got expensive compared to foreign sources, so we bought cheaper oil from there rather than pump it out here, because we could. Sort of like why we buy many things made in China. It isn't because the products are better. They just cost less.

    As long as you don't give a **** about the environment the US could have been energy independent long ago

    But unlike good Republicans of the past today's Republicans do everything they can to make a buck doesn't matter how many people it kills

    CDC says the regulations Trump had already cut will kill approximately 1400 a year, any more cuts to environmental regulations will only increase that number

    I just had a scary feeling that we don't know all the lies that the demonic-rats are telling. Even now.

    Yep! Lift regulations on oil, like Trump did, and we became oil independent in, what was it, two years? AMAZING! Something politicians said would take decades happened in two years thanks to Trump limiting the government's power!

    When did democrats used to "always say" that?

    -----------

    I'm afraid I'm going to need a source for that. Because to anyone not living inside your head, the statement is nonsensical.

    -----------

    So no source, then.

    Just to clarify - "Democrats" have criticized oil companies for a number of things for quite a while. Somehow preventing energy independence isn't really one of them.

      That's nice.
      What part of that mentions "energy independence" AT ALL?
      Or even remotely brings up the 1960s, or any other time in the past?

      Seriously, the claim is pathetically nonsensical.

    I liked obama all of the above energy policy. It’s because of republicans why we are not number one in green energy. China is now.
