ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the seventh energy policy proposal made by U.S. President George W. Bush stating the need for energy independence. The author contends that during his six years as president, Bush administration has failed to enact any ideas to reduce the country's crippling and dangerous dependence on foreign oil. Furthermore, he states that the country has ways and means and brains to reduce its foreign oil consumption, however, the country does not have the political will.
