House Approves Drilling In Alaska Story dated 21 April 2005
Finally, our Congress is showing some intelligence. We need to be energy independent. All you people who don't like us fighting in the Middle East? We probably wouldn't be there if the oil supply lines weren't so important. The solution is to simply drill in our own country. That way, no one gets hurt, and we can stop funding tyrannical regimes in the Middle East with oil revenues.
And with no due respect, the opponents of this bill are idiots and should not be reelected. "Opponents say that oil wouldn't be available for a decade and even then at levels that would not significantly affect oil prices or imports." That's not an argument. It has no bearing on this issue. For one thing, we need to think further in the future. Half the trouble we are in is because the parasites in Congress can't see past the next election, much less six to ten years in the future. It's like saying you shouldn't waste your money on a gym membership because you wouldn't see real benefits for a year or so. And so what if it wouldn't significantly affect oil prices or imports. It would affect them. Any effect is felt by the consumer (you and me). That statements by opponents means that they don't care about you and you should let them know of your displeasure in the next election.
Keep in mind, though, that additional oil exploration is not enough. Realm of Sovereigns has long been a proponent of the concept of a Solar Energy Production Satellite. _____________________________________________
