So Democrats are the Party of the working man and woman, right?
And the working man and woman are hardest-hit by high energy prices, right?
And so Congress is doing everything it can to rein-in oil prices, and Sen Obama has an energy program ready to go to help the working men and women, right?
A political party that cared about the citizens of this country would take the time to understand that energy – like everything else in the world, whether or not they like it – is about supply and demand.
India and China are increasing their energy needs tremendously, but we aren’t allowed to increase our supply.
China is drilling off the outer continental shelf in Florida – but American companies aren’t allowed to drill in our own waters (where there are over 15B barrels of oil) or on our own land (there are over 4.3B barrels under North Dakota and Montana).
The last gasoline refinery permitted by the Democrats and built in the US was in 1976. We drove 1.03 miles in 1976; we drove 1.7B miles in 2005, a 40% increase. But no increase in gasoline supply since 1976 thanks to the Democrats – and they wonder why prices are higher.
The future is not about returning to less transportation and communication and less energy and electricity, whether Democrats understand these basics or not.
Supply is not increasing. Demand is going through the roof.
And Democrats are the obstacle to solving high energy prices. Democrats are the obstacle to energy independence. Democrats are the obstacle to economic growth.
And it is Democrats ensuring our oil dollars flow to terrorist countries rather than keeping American wealth in America, producing jobs and economic progress.
Democrats are the obstacle to the American working man and woman achieving the American Dream.
The voters need to understand that Democrats work against Americans’ better interests every single chance they get.
You want to know who is causing high oil prices? Who is ensuring the ruination of our public education? Who is putting fads over science (the earth cooled faster last year than any time in recorded history, and has been cooling since 1998)?
It is Democrats destroying our future. It is Democrats trying to make America into the failed demi-continent of Europe. It is Democrats trying to destroy the best health care system on the planet.
Democrats – Baby Boomer whiners against technology, the future, progress.
And the sole reason energy prices are as high as they are.
