hydro electricity to separate water into oxygen and hydrogen.  Most missiles are a dry-hydro fuel cell. Free electricity to produce and explosive compound.  Oxygen can be bottled and saved for after we ruin the environment even more.

Likely trolling but just in case, yes electrically separating H and O will work just fine for rocket fuel.  Don't bottle that O just yet as we are going to need it to burn the H -- that's what makes the rocket ship go forward.

Also you could use alcohol and oxygen or fuels made from vegetable oils and oxygen.

But don't worry about running out of oxygen we never will.  Earth is pretty much made out of oxygen and silicon.

We'll call Barry Bonds out of retirement and he can hit them into orbit.

Tesla discovered wireless, free energy.  US government murdered him and stole his research, in order to protect profits of oil barons.  So, use that free energy.

Corned beef sammiches could probably be made to launch a rocket if you made it into a Manhattan-project style national priority.  Free energy can not and never will.  Arthur Eddington put it best:

If someone points out to you that your pet theory of the universe is in disagreement with Maxwell's equations - then so much the worse for Maxwell's equations. If it is found to be contradicted by observation - well, these experimentalists do bungle things sometimes. But if your theory is found to be against the Second Law of Thermodynamics I can give you no hope; there is nothing for it to collapse in deepest humiliation.

­The same dude that murdered GHWB, I would think.  Tesla lived to be 86.
