Drill Here. Drill Now. Pay Less.

I don’t think that anyone can dispute that we are in a full-fledged energy crisis. Skyrocketing oil prices are endangering our economic security and standard of living. We have seen the immediate impact at the pump, but sharply higher prices on the way with every good and service in our economy since everything is dependant upon oil in some way.

Do we need to conserve? Yes. Do we need more wind solutions? Absolutely. Do we need to look at solar energy? Of course. How about hybrid, electric, and hydrogen fuel cell cars? Duh.

We must do everything in our power to attack this energy crisis. That includes drilling for the oil we are currently sitting on in this country. We are the only country in the world prohibiting itself from further development of its own natural resources. Drilling can be done without major environmental impacts and must be done to protect our national security.

American Solutions is a non-partisan organization trying to rise above partisan politics to provide real solutions to our most significant problems. They are currently runing a petition drive demanding that our politicians remove the restrictions on domestic oil production for the sake of our economy and national security. I urge you to check them out and sign the petition if you are so inclined.

Why Do We Need A Border Fence?

A previous post, Christmas Wish List For The United States, is starting to generate some discussion on my item about building the border fence. This is a good thing. Let’s talk these things through as a people and figure out the best approach. However, I need to take a step back and make the case on why we need the fence. So after the first of the year, look for a series of posts in which I will lay out what the root problem is, why it is a problem, and one of possibly several steps we need to take to solve it. So stay tuned and do some research on your own if you have time. Let’s have an honest, intelligent discussion based on facts.
