How is that possible, you ask? Well, that is what is exciting, and that is one of thereasons Im running for president.I know that science, technology, entrepreneurship have made tremendous progress. And I know that the politicians in Washington, the old-time establishment, the elitenews media, the bureaucrats dont have a clue whats possible, or in some cases, theyhave a clue and they are opposed to it. And I want to cover both of those in the next few minutes.But lets start with a historic fact that I think is going to change our understanding of Americas future and our understanding of the energy possibilities.That fact is called North Dakota. In North Dakota, there is a formation called theBakken formation. It has a tremendous amount of oil. It has much more oil than the USgeological survey used to think.In fact, based on one US geological survey study, there is now 25 times as much oil asthere was back when they first estimated it, not 25 percent more, 2500 percent more.Now, the reason we know this is, I think, very illustrative of what is wrong with America. We know the Bakken formation exist in North Dakota because it is on privateland, and liberals werent able to block us from developing it.So the people, the entrepreneurs, the business leaders who went in and developed that formation, they began to produce more and more oil. As one of them said, They nowfind that almost everywhere they look, there is more oil.Whats the result? Well, the official unemployment rate in North Dakota is 3.5 percent,but that may actually be misleading because most of that 3.5 percent dont have theright training. It turns out that North Dakotas booming to such an extent that there is16 to 18,000 new job, good jobs, 60,000 to 80,000 dollar-a-year jobs that arent filledbecause the folks who need a job arent trained, and the folks, the jobs they need,dont have people filling them.Think about that. What would that be like in your hometown if the boom was so bigthat there were 16 to 18,000 unfilled jobs? How much better off would we be? And guess what? When you have that kind of economic growth, you have an increasein revenue to the government. So the State government of North Dakota has had sevenconsecutive tax cuts, and it now has a rainy day fund of several billion dollars, eventhough the entire state budget is only about $2 billion.So energy can lead to a bigger economy, more revenue for the government, better jobsfor people. Now lets step all the way back and look at the other 49 states and look at the ocean around the United States.
