While we sit on undeveloped resources greater than the total reserves of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Iraq and Venezuela combined, congress has seen fit to put our national security and our financial well-being as a nation into the hands of some of the most volatile and unstable regions of the world.
This lunacy has to stop. In addition to concentrating on developing alternative energy resources for tomorrow, we must meet the needs of OUR citizens today. Our food supply, our housing industry and our job market are all heavily and deleteriously impacted by the skyrocketing energy costs - and proposals to further tax windfall profits of our domestic producers, who supply a pittance of our overall oil, are simply asinine and made for grabbing headlines rather than addressing the real problem.
I urge all members of ActiveRain to join me and over 1,000,000 other Americans who are fed up with politics as usual and are not going to continue to bear the brunt of Congressional inactivity and counter-productivity. Please log onto either or both of the website links below to sign petitions and email your congressional representatives regarding this issue. It's an election year - the will of the people will be heard and it starts with YOU.
