Gas prices and my security

It's time to get a little political. I read this today and it got me thinking.


I wish to high heaven that people would let go of their knee-jerk reactions to our environment for just 2 seconds to think about what our inablility to do anything about finding new US Based energy resources is accomplishing. By not being proactive we are allowing the oil cartels the opportunity to tell us how much we will pay for our gas and oil.

If we are importing 5,000,000,000 barrels of oil each year due to our desire to preserve pretty places for reindeer that no one ever visits (ANWAR) at $129.00 a barrel-- We are paying the oil producing regimes $645,000,000,000 this year for that oil. News Flash! Some of these regimes (Iran, Venezuela) HATE Americans. We in effect are funding regimes that hate us if we refuse to tap into the natural resources we have right here.

I think it's time to make a smart decision that will provide us the stability we so desperately need to be successful in the future as a freedom loving nation. If said we will drill new oil I'm sure the price of oil would immediately drop even if we wouldn't see a drop of that oil for 10 years.

Okay I'll get off my soapbox for a little while.
