Funny, that those aren't new issues and even funnier is that previous Republicans and Democrats hand picked by the RNC and the DNC, not only had their
chance at fixing them but they even created them them.
Republicans haven't done anything for drilling Oil, nor going after criminals on wall street when they had the chance. They created the patriot act
and neither DNC groomed Democrats or RNC groomed Republicans will do away with it, because it benefits them (gov't) and lobbyist. The patriot act is a
great way to control and monitor the consumers.
In addition are the oil companies loosing any money by not drilling? No, they are making more money because they can charge you more for a commodity
that is in high demand but not enough of to meet the demand.
What would happen if they opened more drilling and they not only could keep up with the demand but they exceed it? Gas prices would go down, profits
would go down, gov't taxes made on the sale of gas would go down. Who pays for the cost of doing business, the consumer.
So regardless, what it cost to make the gas the consumer gets the bill and the prices are set on the demand and supply, The more supply the lesser the
demand and therefore the lesser the price they can charge.That is why Republicans AND Democrats aren't and haven't done anything of significance about
OIL drilling. They use one another to shift the blame on why gas prices are high and why more drill sites don't exist. So when Republicans are arguing
back in forth with the democrats they are laughing all the way to the bank.
IMO, It appears to me that you are a GOP loyalist who is realizing that Romney was the riskier candidate to select over Ron Paul and you are trying to
sway the RP supporters
GOP Base voters are composed of two types of voters:
(Anyone but Obama) and (Ron Paul supporters)
Romney= (Anyone but Obama)
Ron Paul = (Anyone but Obama) + (Ron Paul supporters)
Easily you can see which candidate stands to loose the most voters within its own party and hence why Obama is going to win again. The GOP knew this
as well but for them and the DNC is not about winning the election its about ensuring the RIGHT candidates are selected for the masses to pick
Therefore, I assume more and more GOP loyalist will continue to pop up and try to convert Ron Paul supporters to vote for the false slogan "Vote for
the lesser evil"
You wan't to help and fix the problem with this country then IMO this is what has to happen.
