How to save the country

Here’s a radical idea – instead of America spending more money on defense, how about we spend it on building and upgrading our renewable resources so we don’t need oil. Solar, hydroelectric, wind power, etc. The countries we are at war with over oil will no longer have us as a customer. They will go broke. Our citizens will not have to be harmed by being soldiers. No more worries about oil leaks in water. The air will be clean. Seems simple.
