American Energy Initiative - Republicans Have It Right

Socialists in Congress are pushing to release oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve because they are scared to death that the American people will rise up against them in 2012, at the polls, if gas prices are over $4.00 a gallon, as is now happening. Socialists should be scared because they and their environmental wacko supporters that have hindered the development of all current energy sources in the US are the reason the United States is not energy independent today. While they may have to release oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve as a short term solution to the problem, it will do nothing to address our dependence on foreign oil for the long term.

The Republicans in Congress get it as they are introducing legislation that they call the American Energy Initiative designed to foster development of nuclear, natural gas, clean coal, oil shale and oil in the United States as a bridge to further technologies like wind, solar and bio fuels that are not economically feasible today without huge government subsidies. We need cheap energy to grow our economy and jobs in the United States. It is just that simple. The United States could be energy independent within 20 years if the Socialists and environmental wackos would just get out of the way. Current energy sources can be developed in environmentally sound ways to give us the time we need to complete research and development on the non-carbon based technologies of the future. This is just common sense.

If we don't sweep President Obama and the other Socialists in office out of office in 2012 and 2014, the United States will fall behind, all energy prices will skyrocket and Americans will experience high unemployment for years to come and a lower standard of living. Energy available at reasonable cost is the basis for economic growth and development. The Chinese get it. They are developing all current sources of energy, as well as, pursuing the technologies of the future and we must do the same if we are to remain a super power. This is actually a national security issue, as well.

We must sweep these Socialists out of office in 2012 and 2014 by electing 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. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth, jobs in our country and to maintain our super power status in the world.

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, public employee unions, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country. The American Energy Initiative is a good way to start the process. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
