Are you frustrated by $4-$5/gallon gas? Are you confused as to why many our elected leaders are still resisting more domestic gas and oil exploration
and production? Are you worried about our ever growing dependency of foreign oil and the billions of US dolllars that leave this country every year,
and end up in countries that harbor and support enemies of our way of life?
1) Make it clear to your state and federal representatives that you will not cast a vote for ANYONE who is not 100 percent behind more domestic oil
and gas production.
2) Check out this site
The Pickens Plan
When I first heard about it I was skeptical, but what he is saying makes sense.
This could be the begining of a sea change in the way our country uses it's energy resources. A way that will provide all the energy we need and are
accustomed to, a way that reduces our dependancy of foriegn oil, and protects our national and economic interests.
Check out the website. If you agree w/ what Mr. Pickens is saying, join the movement and urge 4-5 others to do the same.
Now, I'm not naive enough to think he's being completely altruistic. I realize he's getting into the wind business in a big way, but if he can help
the country and make a few (billion) bucks at the same time, more power to him...I mean after all, that's the American way.... right?
