Obama - No Silver Bullet To Deal With Gas Prices

Socialist President Obama recently told us that there is "no silver bullet" related to rising gas prices that will soon reach $5 a gallon.   Of course, what he failed to tell us is that raising the cost of carbon based energy has always been part of his plan to make "green" technologies economically feasible.  When running for the Presidency he said in no uncertain terms that his energy plan required that the cost of carbon based fuels needed to rise dramatically so that wind and solar power could compete with carbon based fuels.  And of course, Obama's administration is doing everything possible to destroy the oil and coal industries and to prevent the development of nuclear energy.

So while China is opening up a new coal powered energy plant a week and has plans to build 10 new nuclear plants each year, Obama is chasing wind mills that cannot possibly power the American economy for years to come.   Instead of proposing a common sense 50 year energy plan, that will lead to energy independence for the United States, Obama is spending billions of dollars to subsidize "green" technologies that are not economically feasible today.   And, the federal government is spending 50 cents a gallon to subsidize ethanol made from corn, the production of which actually results in more green house gas emissions than it saves in addition to raising food prices.   All of this is just plain goofy.

The President is right.   Obama has no silver bullet to deal with rising gas prices because his administration has made it almost impossible to drill for oil in the United States and has further delayed the development of nuclear, coal and natural gas energy sources.   Instead Obama continues to demonize the oil companies because they are profitable.   Of course, they are profitable.   They sell something that we all need.   However, oil companies pay among the highest corporate income taxes of all companies at about 40% of income, as opposed to GE, Obama's pals that paid none.  So, Obama should be thrilled that oil companies are profitable because that tax revenue helps fund all his Socialist Schemes. 

President Obama talks a good game and is great at smiling; but actions speak much louder than words.   The Environmental Protection Agency, Obama's Gestapo Agency is preventing or delaying the development of most carbon based and nuclear energy sources.   The end result will be slower economic growth in our country, higher unemployment for years to come, higher energy cost and a lower standard of living for all Americans.   These Socialists are destroying the American economy. 

It is very nice that President Obama finally produced his actual birth certificate to prove that he was born in the United States.  This blogger has never really questioned Obama's place of birth; but I have questioned whether Obama is an American mostly because Obama often acts in ways that are contrary to the interests of the American people.   President Obama does not think like an American perhaps because he spent his formative years outside our country.   Obama wants to "transform" our country into a European style Socialist nation when that economic model has failed miserably time and again.   We can't let that happen. 

The fact is that WE THE PEOPLE have a silver bullet to deal with higher gas prices.   We must use that magic bullet at the ballot box in 2012 and 2014 to sweep these Socialists, including President Obama, out of office by electing common sense Conservatives that will represent the interests of the American people.   We must finish the job we began in 2010 and take back our country.   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.   We have to make Obama a one term President to prevent the bankruptcy of the United States.
