Dear Congressman and Senators;
Just a note to remind you that the escalating price of oil will negatively impact your constituents greater to a power of ten thanks to the Federal Government. If we were drilling for oil off shore and in Alaska as any sane people would do, the impact would be less.
If the Federal Government actually wanted to make this country energy self-sufficient it could be done. Instead of pie in the sky solar and electric cars we could switch to natural gas. We have it in abundance. It is cleaner than what we are using now. But, that's just people who actually care about our country. Ever heard of T. Boone Pickens?
In the future, as historians study the fall of the United States, one of their questions will have to be what makes a nation so powerful fall so fast that it would not even develop its own resources and instead send money to people who wished to destroy them.
Think unemployment is bad now? Wait until gasoline is $10 a gallon. One final note: we borrowed 4 billion dollars today. What did you do to keep that from happening?
