  • The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

Oil Independence Voted Down by Dems Again!!!

Posted by rightwinger on May 19, 2008

What!!!??? The Dems vote down drilling again while Americans are hurting and losing jobs!!! I guess they see it as a plus. See how evil Bush is, and he doesn’t care. Give me a break. I want clean air and water as much as the next person. I recycle. I don’t drive an SUV. If hybrids come down in price enough, I’ll buy one. We need oil until the next new energy breakthrough comes about. We need oil now and for the next 50 years. We should drill in America and help ourselves and not the Middle East.

Liberal political leaders, including two who happen to be running for President, constantly claim to seek American oil independence. Invariably, however, they turn around and thwart measures to achieve precisely that.

This week, a bill introduced by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R – Kentucky) once again illustrated liberals’ duplicity on this subject.

Senator McConnell, along with twenty other Republican Senators, had introduced the Domestic Energy Production Act, which sought to allow domestic oil exploration and production in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and the deepwater Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). This would result in production of more barrels of oil here at home, creating well-paying American jobs in the process, as opposed to further increasing dependence upon oft-hostile foreign sources.

Unfortunately, the liberals who now dominate the Senate defeated this prudent measure, and once again said “no” to greater American oil independence.
