The Case For Cheap Energy

It is virtually impossible for the United States to experience economic growth, job creation, or a higher standard of living for our people without cheap energy.   Contrary to what you hear from Socialist President Obama, the "green" economy is a bust.   In fact, today only 3.6% of electricity in the US is generated from wind, solar, or bio fuels because none of them are economically feasible.  Further, those technologies would not exist at all without major government subsidies, which is a sure indicator that this is a losing proposition, at least for years to come.   The "green" economy, presumably dependent on unpredictable weather, is a throw back to the 13th century and not suitable for a modern industrial society.   Wind mills are nothing new.   They existed in places like Holland for hundreds of years until they were replaced by more predictable and efficient carbon based fuels.

And, when Socialists advocate these green technologies they do not consider the negative impact.  For example, the land mass of the entire state of Connecticut would be needed for wind and solar facilities to power New York City alone.   If land that would normally be used for housing is used for energy production, the price of housing will go up.  In addition, if farm land is used for wind and solar facilities, the price of food will necessarily sky rocket as result of scarcity.   So unless, we want to go back to the Dark Ages,  it is clear that both fossil based fuels, natural gas and nuclear energy must be part of a 50 year energy plan to make the United States energy independent.   It cannot happen any other way.

Socialist President Obama has said that under his energy plan, as though he has one, the cost of energy would necessarily have to go up significantly.  If Obama gets his way, we will see minimal economic growth, high unemployment for years to come and a much lower standard of living for all Americans.   We can't let that happen.   Instead, we need to vote for Conservative candidates that understand that cheap energy is the key to economic growth and job creation in our country.   The only way to get there is to develop all sources of energy in the United States, including more oil drilling, oil shale, natural gas, clean coal and nuclear energy, along with implementing far more research on renewables.   In doing so, millions of jobs will be created in the United States.

Think about it.  Electric cars are great assuming we have cheap electric power generated from existing carbon based, or nuclear energy sources because electricity is not going to come from renewables for years to come.   And, why not develop cars that are powered by natural gas.   Most states have natural gas coming right into our homes so every home could be a natural gas station.   The infrastructure is already in place.  We have a hundred year supply of natural gas and it is relatively cheap.  So rather than push the development of electric cars, we should be developing cars and trucks that run on natural gas. 

We need cheap energy in the United States to restore economic growth and job creation in our country.   It will never happen as long as Socialist President Obama remains in office, which is a major reason we must make Obama a one term President in 2012.   We have to sweep these environmental wacko Socialists, that are destroying our economy and bankrupting our country out of office in 2012 and 2014 by electing Conservatives that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, real energy, education 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 and job creation in the United States.  

We must take back our country in 2012 and 2014 to make the United States energy independent.   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.  Unless we want to go back to the Dark Ages, we must make Obama a one term President.
