Drill Here. Drill Now. Pay Less.

By May 28, 2008Energy

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.

    It’s about time to drill here , now and pay less!

  • Hi, I’m the owner of the Conservative Principles blog. My blog, yours, and a number of others are listed on the American Solutions site as supporting the Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less campaign.

    I am going to create a blogroll (in HTML so the search engines will read it) of the sites listed and distribute it to interested sites. You’ll be able to just copy and paste it into a widget or blogger element.

    If you would like to be included in the blogroll, just email me at pzannucci@gmail.com. By creating this roll, we not only support each other’s sites, but we add strength to the Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less cause. When/if that program comes to an end, we can either move to supporting American Solutions in general, find another conservative cause, disband, or whatever.

    Thanks, and don’t forget to let me know if you’d like to be included. Sites listed on American Solutions that do not email me will not be included.

    Paul Zannucci
