Republican U.S. Senate candidate, Pat Flynn, said today “It is pathetic the way America’s attitude and lack of action are regarding our energy situation today. America’s oil resources are so abundant that there is absolutely no way Americans should buy into the garble when President Obama says ‘there is no simple or easy solution out of the energy situation.’ This is absolute nonsense and that our energy problems are from bad policy, not lack of resources.
Gas at the pump was $1.82 per gallon when Obama took office and today regular was $3.94. Newt Gingrich’s plan to get gasoline down to $2.50 per gallon is accurate and very easily done. In fact, it could be accomplished almost overnight if our President and elected representatives had the desire and gumption to do it. Since America’s market is no longer created by market demand but by speculation, all America would have to do is tell the world that we are going to become energy independent starting today and lift the moratorium on drilling of our domestic resources – both land and sea. If President Obama actually wanted to do this, which he does not, this action alone would decrease the price of gasoline at the pump by 40% or more. World leaders understand well when America speaks from strength and honesty; and the market reacts accordingly.
Unfortunately, none of this is going to happen. President Obama has said repeatedly that he wants America’s price at the pump to be like Europe’s which is anywhere from $8-$10 per gallon. He has said repeatedly he wants to remake America and that capitalism is the problem. America, President Obama is not for US and we need to take the common sense action our Constitution gives us and vote him out!
We declared independence from tyranny in 1776 and we need to do it again in 2012 and that road starts here in Nebraska May 15th.
