Patriotic Americans Choose Flex-Fuel Vehicles

Oh By The Way #1: The U.S. Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. Time to do your job Mr. Chu, or save the American taxpayer $24 billion.

Oh By The Way #2: In 2010 52% of the much dreaded and opined about Trade Deficit was caused by America importing oil*. We think its time to go into the streets and protest how OPEC is ruling (ruining) our country.

After learning and understanding the facts, The Auto Channel along with scientists, politicians and intelligent Americans believe that replacing gasoline with Ethanol as the primary fuel for American mobility will result in a win-win-win-win for our country, our people and our economy. Yet despite overwhelming logic and factual proof of flex fuels validity, the forces of evil and their ignorant (or owned) minions continue to obstruct flex fuel's ubiquitous adoption through well planned and payed-for mis-information and “divide and conquer” tactics.

The only entity to get hurt from the ubiquitous adoption of flex fuel is the foreign oil cartel, the OPEC nations.

Just imagine the positive effects that production, distribution and use of sustainable, domestic Bio-Ethanol fuels will have on the United States and the world.

American Farmers will immediately benefit (and why shouldn’t they). Their income will grow by adding additional non-food crops to their harvest, and the remnants from grain used to make ethanol can be used as high grade feed for their own livestock. The remainder can be exported for sale internationally. (It's already happening, last year American farmers exported $1 billion dollars worth, even with the tiny number of current ethanol users…just imagine 1000 times the volume - wow!)

American Car Makers will immediately benefit because they'll have a short term competitive advantage over the off-shore car companies in designing, building and selling flex-fuel vehicles. (Almost 10 million flex fuel cars and trucks have already been sold here in the U.S. and more promised - U.S. carmakers are already doing their part – thanks! And as the imported brands see how serious the American drivers are about ethanol, I'll bet that every car maker will finally add flex fuel vehicles to their North American offerings.)

American Labor will immediately benefit from the additional demand for more of the flex fuel vehicles they are already building at GM, Ford and Chrysler. And when the other brands wake up their workers will get busier as well.

North American Car Dealers at first, the domestic brand car dealers will sell more cars, hire more people and sponsor more local events and organizations, like your kids soccer or little league, your hospital auxiliary, local library and arts…you know, the things they have historically contributed to their local communities. And as soon the foreign Marques see that Americans are serious about getting off of oil, they will also offer flex-fuel models…giving fence sitters another good reason to buy a new car.

American Entrepreneurs and Employees; will immediately benefit, it is estimated that an ethanol society here in the U.S. will support many hundreds of thousands of new small businesses and millions of additional good paying jobs. Who is more creative than American business people… new ways to make and monetize the new manna will explode on the economy giving it a boost never seen before.

U.S. and Canadian Government will benefit foreign policy can concentrate on the good guys not the bad guys and on what’s right, not just on what’s expedient to keep our stash of oil coming.

U.S. and Canadian Military; no more need to waste another patriot’s life protecting our source of black poison, and we can save tax money too.

North America's Economy; will immediately benefit, as we get off of expensive petroleum based fuels and replace them with cheaper domestic renewable bio-ethanol, the cost of domestic transportation, farming and manufacturing will go down, making local domestic manufacturing more competitive, and don’t we really need that? Plus the demand for an additional 50 billion gallons of ethanol will generate almost 1 million new jobs here, and the reintroduction of the $365 Billon now going to OPEC for imported oil will boost our whole economy

Our Planet; whether you believe in man-made climate change or not, eliminating tail pipe poison can only help our environment, and because we can reduce our carbon footprint we can take the high road and become the example to other countries.

Food Vs. Fuel Another Diversion From the Fine Folks In OPEC and Their Fellow Travelers
