in response to reader comment: Islam should be outlawed in the USA

Hi There;

the only reason I can see for people in the Western countries to practice tolerance and political correctness toward the Muslim religion is their dependence on Mid-Eastern oil to keep their industrial machinery going.

I know that in the past other religions have been outlawed for far less than what they do. The only reason that these government have put up with it is that (For the time being) they have us over an oil barrel.

That's why the sooner that we to develop alternative sources of fuel and energy independence. Then some outsider that we didn't vote for - or elect can't come into our country and tell our leaders what to do or dictate policy to us.

I think that along with energy dependence would come an end to the stupid idea of being politically correct and tolerant to a religious cult and people that obviously hate us with every fiber of their beings.

Along with energy independence you can just tell them that they can either start to assimilate or get out and take their so-called Religion of Peace with them.

Well - I hope I haven't teed off too many people,
