Stop giving money to the terrorists!

Isn't it ironic that the very regions of the world where there are strong anti-U.S. feelings are the very areas where we get our oil from? People wonder where organizations such Hamas and Hezbollah get their funding. They get most of their money directly from Iran, which happens to be a major supplier of oil to the U.S. So, logically, it would seem that we supply the funds that the terrorists that want to wage jihad on our own people.
It seems that we have the best means to fight terrorism right down on the corners of our streets. 98% of the oil that we use every day comes from overseas and from countries not friendly with the United States. We have been so short-sighted that we do not seen that the money we pay for oil is the same funding used to make the weapons that are killing our soldiers.
Most people cannot see beyond what they pay at the pump. If they realized who that money is going to, would they buy those huge SUVs that they really don't need? Or think they have to race everyone else that happens to be on the road? I don't think they would. Of course, most people don't see beyond their own pocketbooks. Imagine what they would save there.
Then you have the people that just don't care. They blame Iran for destabilizing the Middle East, but they don't think about where that regime gets it's money. They get most of their money from the American people.
