The US imports oil that comes at a high cost and is dependent on foreign governments to meet energy needs.  Do you think it is worth the political, economic, and environmental risks to use the USA's domestic resources in Alaska & off shore? Why?

It is most definitely worth the risk of political, economic, and environmental concerns as this would, if successful, create a self reliant nation. Technologies have created a more efficient process on extracting deposits, thus, minimal risk with increased profitability  stays within and contributes to the US GDP as well as providing the US population with a more cost effective solution as pricing will not be passed as it currently is when importing.
