AMERICA HOLDS KEY TO UNLOCKING SHACKLES IMPOSED BY FOREIGN OIL DEPENDENCE, REFUSES TO USE IT
By Michael Wurl
Everyone complains about the rising gas prices, but nobody does anything about it.
It seems that our leaders do not know how to lead us anymore, except to lead us straight to Hell in a handbasket. The world as we know it, life as we have known it, is disappearing. It is being engulfed in flaming tide of unrest that is sweeping through the Middle East and shows no signs of ending. All the while our President sits indifferent in his ivory tower, content to make calculated soundbites contrived in a way so that he offends nobody and says, in effect, nothing, and does, in reality, nothing.
Meanwhile, as Obama and his cabinet determine the best way to do nothing and to not offend his Muslim constituency without doing anything that may make him look at all like his predecessor Bush, the rest of us, you and me, we're stuck out here trying to put gas in our cars without spending our entire paychecks at the gas-pump in one sitting.
The USA has waited too long to renew drilling for oil at home. We have to do everything in our power to end our dependency on foreign oil NOW!! We cannot waste any more time, we have to act decisively RIGHT NOW!!
It seems apparent that radical Muslim elements throughout the Middle East are not about to stop the unrest and increasingly violent protests that began in Tunisia and continued like so many falling dominoes throughout Egypt, Bahrain, Morocco, Algeria, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Oman, Yemen, and now Libya. Saudi Arabia is now scrambling in fear of growing Shiite protests expected this week, and when the oil supply in Saudi Arabia is threatened, you and I are the losers...gas prices will sky-rocket to unbelievable heights!
Speculators are now saying that the $5.00 or more a gallon gas prices we were expecting later this year are now being predicted to arrive much sooner because of the protests and the dangerous disruption of stability in the Middle East regions.
America, we need to wake up! Our leaders are doing nothing to prevent the inevitable inflation of our imported oil prices that threatens to destroy our way of life! We need oil to operate in our modern world, but we have to do something fast to alleviate the financial stranglehold that essentially leaves us at the mercy of foreign oil! As it exists today, the general population of the USA are slaves to these foreign oil billionaires...we cannot continue our daily lives without oil, and if they continue to raise the price of a barrel of oil every time somebody in the Middle East sneezes, where does that leave us? It leaves us at their mercy. And they have yet to show us any mercy.
I am joining with those who say here in the United States of America, NOW IS THE TIME to end our slavish dependency on imported foreign oil, and one of the first steps we can do is to end all moratoriums on drilling in the United States so we can start drilling NOW! Prices at the gas-pump are determined by oil futures speculators, and the moment we begin to drill, the prices here will drop, to put it simply. If we don't start drilling now, where will we get our oil tomorrow? How can we afford not to drill now?
To those who say it will be 'too little, too late', I say that doing something is better than doing nothing. To do nothing is ridiculous. We have to once again take control over our own future, over our own lives. If we don't do something immediately, we are risking our entire existence.
We need to raise our voices now! I am asking every one of you to write letters, send emails, call your congressmen, your senators, your governors! Do it today! Don't be like our President, hiding from responsibility, waiting for the looming doom to all to somehow magically go away...we have waited too long already! If they don't know what to do next, then we need to tell them,
LOUD AND CLEAR!!
Start Drilling Today!
