Our drilling for oil is hobbled in Alaska, crippled in the gulf and held hostage off California and all across the country. By law. Not that our laws are stopping other countries from drilling off our shores. Our laws enacted by liberals and little republicans, all for a warm fuzzy feeling, is now threatening what other countries have only dreamed of, crippling our economy. The economy is strong now because of conservative policy, but for how long when the price of oil is spiraling out of control.
Make no mistake about it, liberals are trying to cause our economy to falter in a controlled fashion. Once it does the liberals can control the House, the Senate, the White House and most state capitols to expand the power of government, lessen the power of states and individuals, by pointing out the bad economy (that they caused) under a Republican president. One way to make the economy to falter is to tie the hands of industry through mechanisms like oil and their crap about the environment.
I am all for animals, natural beauty and a safe environment, but we'll have none of it if our economy falls. No oil and our economy falls. Liberal control and our economy is, at the least, faltering if not worse. I know,
With the competition in the market from Communist China, our ally India and other emerging nations for oil the US has to engage in more drilling. If a snail darter loses its little life, well, I'll have a little funeral.
Will moderates and independents still love the caribou family if they can't find work and feed their moderate or independent family?
If I could get oil below $55 and have a good caribou steak I'd be happy.
Why are we being held hostage. Let's drill.
