  • 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

Go Republican NC Representative Sue Myrick!!!

Posted by rightwinger on July 3, 2008

Drill, drill, drill !!! This can be done in an environmentally sensitive way. This will create jobs and spur our NC economy. Sue Myrick points out that China is drilling 50 miles off the US coast for oil.

Rep. Sue Myrick is sponsoring a bill to search for oil and natural gas. So far, it has generated both support and opposition. “[The bill] very simply says we will use our own oil and natural gas by drilling off the outer continental shelf,” said Myrick.

A Department of Interior study shows billions of barrels of oil and trillions of cubic feet of natural gas are off the N.C. coast. Under the Deep Ocean Energy Resource Act proposed by Myrick, states could determine whether to allow drilling between 50-200 miles off their coasts.

‘We are the only developed country in the world that does not drill off our coast,” said Myrick, who feels the situation is even worse since China already drills 50 miles away from the Florida coastline. “We can’t do it. China is. China already has our jobs, are we going to give them our oil too?”
