A good idea, a punchy slogan, and the right idea on energy from Newt Gingrich’s outfit, American Solutions.
The website for the “Drill Here. Drill Now. Pay Less.” campaign includes a video of Gingrich making the case for domestic energy production, arguments we certainly share here at the NAM.
You know that Brazil has found two large oil fields in the Atlantic Ocean.
You know that the Brazilians are now independent of Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Russia…that the Brazilians are free of the Middle East and free of OPEC.
And you know that today, it is illegal to look for oil in the Atlantic, in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, in the Pacific, in northern Alaska, in the shale oil that’s available in the Rocky Mountains. Every one of those has been locked up by our politicians , and you know that it’s time that Americans had a chance to produce more oil and gas, to have refineries here and not be dependent on foreign dictators.
And stop the Warner-Lieberman bill, too.
The site includes an online petition in support of legislation, which Gingrich expects to be introduced in June. So go ahead and sign…$4.00 a gallon gas has a way of focusing one’s thinking, even Congress, and action is indeed possible to increase domestic supply.
