what I find funny is that we have 6 states that have a bigger economy than Sweden
7 bigger than Norway
14 bigger than Denmark.
17 bigger than Finland


7 states (including new jersey) are more important in the global economy than your country OP.

of course, you being desperate for nationalistic attention would cause you to try and boast about every little thing on the internet....

Yeah? And we also have a **** ton of states that are utterly pointless on the grand scheme of things, ie. Alabama. As a whole, we are a sub-par country as far as I'm concerned.

What is your point? The size or "importance" of a country or state has nothing to do with the well being of the inhabitants.

There are a **** load of oil within just the continental US that have not yet been used. We're saving them for later, so when the oil prices are high as ****, we can sell the and make a huge profit. MURICAHH!!!

when oil prices start to rise, everybody would start to use bicycles, ethanol, hydrogen and stuff like that.

Because oil and bicycles really power an entire nations energy grid.. But otherwise for transportation, that is hard to do over large portions of land. And with rising oil prices come rises in everything, because over 95% of goods are sent over land world wide, the rest is sent over sea, and a little bit by air. It all requires oil, so in the event we have reserves that we havent tapped, we will be able to sustain ourself and to sustain the other world. But we dont have the much oil left in the entire world, and eventually will need to seek out other sources of energy.

the prime oil consumers are average people with cars, the oil will be still used for heavy transportation until someone finds another clean energy source. I must accept that plenty oil derivatives are used to generate electricity and stuff, but, here comes the cool part, we could use penitenciary system to create electricity. Instead of giving penalties in years, we could start giving penalties in giga watts, and give all convicts a human-powered electricity generator so they can't leave prison until they have accomplished with they free. THIS IS THE FUTURE (and i really mean it)

think about it, according to wikipedia there are about 2,266,800 adults incarcerated in the US, they are living supported by taxpayers. Most of them never improve in any way being inside, lets make them contribute a little bit with society before releasing them.

(i know not everybody in prison is guilty, and there are guys that really improve they attitude, but most don't)

No they'll let you drill for it. It is the pipe line they oppose. Besides it really isn't that much oil in the grand scheme of things. What the US does have an ungodly ******** of is natural gas the US has the potential to be the Saudi Arabia of the natural gas and as of right now the Dem's don't seem to have a problem with it. So cheer up.

What In Alaska not really. I mean it is a sizable amount, but not enough to change oil prices or the flow of the market in anyway. Plus it doesn't really matter US already gets way more shale oil from Canada then that field will ever produce.

265 billion barrels of oil in Saudi Arabia source Energy Information DJ 4DM1Nistration, U.S. Crude Oil, Natural Gas, and Natural Gas Liquids Reserves, 2006 Annual Report,
896 million barrels of oil in Alaska reserves source United States Geological Survey estimates as of 2010 highest possible estimate for Alaskan oil reserves according to the USGS is 4.3 billion barrels.

TL;DR
Saudi Arabia 265.4 billion barrels of oil reserves
Iraq 143.1 billion barrels of oil reserves
Kuwait 101.5 billion barrels of oil reserves
Iran 151.2 billion barrels of oil reserves
United States 26.8 billion barrels of oil reserves

It's not about the amount of Oil you have, it's about which currency you sell the oil with. Before the Iraq war, Iraq was selling in euros and gold. Now Iran is refusing to sell in us dollars and America is trying to find the perfect time for another war.

Having dependent territories and legally acquiring land doesn't make you an imperialist nation. France and Norway aren't empires, and they have dependent areas.

We gave up the Phillipines, the various Islands you name are very small and don't constitute "Empire". The Louisiana purchase is mainland US and we have had it since almost the beginning of our nation, Liberia has been independent for awhile. This guy wasn't saying he wished we had conquered in the past. He's saying he wishes we still conquered things, as in taking more.

Imposing power on another state makes you an empire. There is no land qualifier involved. We still do impose power in our best interests, but it is no loner acceptable to be overt about it. America has been and still is a powerful empire

We have held those territories for so long at this point that they are now truly a part of our nation, so they do not qualify as "another state". In order to be an imperial nation we must be expanding into other lands.
