Obama has made it clear that he supports renewable energy and is against drilling to resolve our energy needs. However, according to Zogby, 74% of likely voters favor drilling and 59% favor drilling in ANWR. That's not 74% of Republicans, that's 74% of voters.
So, anyone who supports Obama and is for drilling, should not support Obama because this is the only issue in the country right now?
I support Obama (shocker)
And im all for drilling.
HOWEVER, im only for drilling because its the only thing i know of that can make my gas prices come down.
Since i dont know everything there is to know on this planet, like you obviously believe you do, then im willing to say "ya know what, maybe he'll be able to do something that i never thought of"
After all, he is going to be the president, and you would think he'd have access to things we never dreamed of.
So, your opinion is that "drilling" is the only answer?
My opinion is drilling is an answer, and one that i support. But if new evidence comes along that supports the notion of something else, then ill certainly give it a shot. I dont cling to the past, i look forward to the future
What will alternate energies be?
I have no idea.
I can guess.
Water powered car
Cars that run on french fry grease
Other cars that dont need gasoline
I mean, i found all of those in less than 1 minute from a google search. And since you're thinking of replying right now, with some ignorant response of "dude, cmon really, we'll be running our cars on grease, get real" :shk:
Will we all be filling up at McDonalds any time soon? No. But the technology is here for us to improve upon. It just takes someone who WANTS to do it.
Do your research next time. You make yourself look silly standing up on that stage telling us all that Obama will be the end of our country, because he's against "drilling for oil"

Personally, I think that if Obama is elected, he and the Democratic-controlled Congress are going to tell the environmentalists to jump in a lake. They will start drilling, and when prices go down, they get the credit.
