Soon Canadian oil can be shipped across American sovereign soil so that Canadians can realize more profit when selling their oil on the world market. How else can we open our borders and use our resources to aid the economies of other nations?

This is a positive development. It is very much in the interest of the US to have ready access to this energy source in a geopolitically unstable world. Oil is going to power the world for decades to come. And, unlike developments elsewhere in the world, the pipeline, and the oil sands, will and do have a real positive economic benefit to the US. That's the advantage of getting energy from an ally, instead of someone who funds terrorists. You see it all the time driving up and down the I15, convoys of flatbeds hauling American made components that will assemble into a giant truck or some other machine, all destined for Alberta. That's real economic benefit to us right there.

Moderate, it sounds like you are in favor of more American going on welfare. Why do anything to increase American jobs? This country imports far more that it should; spends far more on welfare and subsidies than it can afford. If the United States had no use for oil and its byproducts, you would be correct in your thinking. Most likely, you are not above using and oil byproducts and you are most certainly wrong in your comment.
