Energy Independence - Another Obama Failure

The price of a barrel of oil has risen to $88 and as such gas is currently selling for around $3.00 a gallon. Economists are predicting that oil will jump to $120 a barrel by 2012. The last time the price of a barrel of oil hit a high of $145, a gallon of gas cost $4.11. This is happening for a few reasons. The Federal Reserve in printing money to monetize our $14 Trillion national debt, which is causing the value of the dollar to fall against other currencies. As a result, it takes more dollars to buy a barrel of oil. And, Socialist President Obama and his environmental wacko supporters will not allow drilling to resume in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico, or the East coast, for at least 7 more years and of course Anwar in Alaska is off limits entirely, which is another great reason to make Obama a one term President in 2012.

Instead of pursuing a policy that would promote energy independence, President Obama advocates CAP & TAX to raise the cost of energy for all, which ultimately will result in a lower standard of living in the United States and the loss of millions of jobs. We need a 50 year plan to develop current energy sources in the United States, including oil, oil shale, clean coal, natural gas and nuclear, while newer technologies like solar, bio fuels and wind are further developed to be economically feasible. All of this can be done in an environmentally sound way. Spain went GREEN and had to subsidize these newer technologies for 50 billion Euros a year because they cannot compete with carbon based fuels. Spain is bankrupt and may soon need a 500 billion Euro bail-out.

President Obama and the Socialists in Congress are killing the American economy. Their CAP & TAX scheme would be a disaster for the United States and another job killer. Clearly, we must elect Conservatives that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, ENERGY and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. We need cheap energy to grow our economy, not more expensive energy that will result in even more jobs going overseas. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore our economy and job growth in the United States.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 97 years, former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country in 2012 and 2014. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life and for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
