For several days I have been asking myself why are all the pundits saying that we will be paying $5.00 per gallon for gasoline in the near future. There is, in my opinion, a simple answer.
Consider the proven fact that we have within the boundaries of the United States of America more oil than is reported to exist in the Middle East along our coastal shores, on the North Slope of Alaska, and massive deposits in Montana, North and South Dakota. It is a fact that the current administration has bowed to significant pressures from special interests and lobbyists. President Barack Obama has often said that we must shift our interests to alternative forms of energy immediately.
It is your Commander’s personal opinion that a shift to alternative energy is a good idea; however, we continue to support foreign governments whose interests are anti-American. We continue to buy oil from countries that take our money and then support forces that are working daily to destroy the American way of life. When we have the oil resources within our own country why don’t we develop them? This would immediately create jobs that would funnel increased revenue for our government’s treasury.
This action would have an immediate positive impact on the stock market, and more importantly would send a definitive signal to our enemies that their vital source of financial support would be taking a serious hit. Obviously the dramatic increase in the consumption of oil in developing countries such as China, India, Russia and many other countries are causing the current increased demand for oil and causing the increased price per barrel. We have the ability to counter the price increase to the American consumer, but devious myopic political interests are causing the American driving public to pay an unacceptable price for gasoline, and consequently support our enemies.
Apparently our leadership cannot see the forest for the trees, and they are complicit in supporting our enemies. SPEAK-UP AMERICA! Call your elected officials and tell them to DRILL BABY DRILL, and do it now. And while we are at it, we also need to find a few more places to build new refineries. American technology has the ability to drill responsibly, and the price per gallon of gasoline will drop dramatically and our economy will prosper in short order. We logically need to move more slowly toward alternative clean energy sources as they are developed into economically feasible options down the line.
