The Energy Crisis: The Potential Impact on the GOP

With the rising costs of fuel across the United States, one would think the politicians in Washington would realize that this is becoming a crisis. People are having a difficult time financially due to the rising costs of filling up, and it is starting to affect food prices, etc. Right now, the price of crude oil is sitting at $136.50 per barrel* (Source: Bloomberg, June 11, 2008), and prices keep rising by the day.

However, the Liberals in Congress are more concerned about sucking up to the environmentalist lobby and standing in the way of anything that would provide some relief for the high prices of fuel. They are standing in the way of drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), which has been uninhabited by wildlife for many years, and they are standing in the way of offshore drilling (look at the Gulf Coast...an oil goldmine).

However, some Dems are looking at the offshore drilling issue as a measure of relief. According to The Rocky Mountain News, Sen. Ken Salazar (D-CO) is recognizing that offshore drilling will aid in addressing the energy crisis while ensuring that conservation is addressed. Well, this is all great and good, but Colorado has the resources available for drilling...so why stand in the way???

The GOP needs to address this issue or there will be some serious losses in November. It is an issue that concerns every American. Of course, you could offer a repeal of the gasoline tax. This is not going to address the issue. The GOP should stand up to the environmentalist lobby by passing measures for offshore and ANWR drilling. This will provide relief and end our dependency on foreign oil.

In regards to the 2008 candidates, U.S. Senate hopeful Jim Gilmore realizes that we need to get off of the foreign oil dependency bandwagon. If elected, you can bet Gilmore will stand up to the liberals in Congress and the environmental lobby by pushing through legislation to drill in ANWR and utilize offshore drilling. This is an important issue that the GOP needs to address before November, because the "tax and spend" liberals are going to do everything to stand in the way of addressing the rising costs of fuel.

Today on june 9th 2008-I was deleted by wecansolveit.org-

the organization looking for alternative energy for america has deleted me- the man who solved the energy crisis-

why- because i say I am a messenger of god

you want your cake and eat it too- you want life exactly the way you want it and not told by another

you dont pick your messengers- they are chosen-

i had enough- i have now endured 13 months on this net being deleted by every arrogant organization run by humans and just regular folk like you who have always ignored my messages since my time upon the net-

well i am done with your stupidity-

let your oil prices go up- let your food prices go up- watch your economies crumble- see your jobs lost- get rid of all your pet animals as you cannot feed your family and pet dog as so many are giving them to the pound-

I have come openly with a solution 13 months ago only to be ignored-

now a gluttonous world playing on the internet shall all learn how primitive man is and must be civil to one another- instead of shunning someone bringing forth a solution- in the months to follow- you will learn there is no alternative fuel- panic mode will set in very soon-

when you understand clearly how important energy is- i guess your arragance will stop and just implement my scientific deeds - as for my messenger duties- it will make sense in time- all is well- but it will only get better after your destruction- i am sorry i have to say this- but it is I who has now watched you completely ignore and ridicule a man of god- as always you will learn the hard way-

time will tell
