Americans are waking up to the fact that gasoline prices, diesel prices, utility bills, and as a trickle down effect, the cost of all goods and services are soaring because Democrats are hell-bent on outlawing any type of oil-drilling or nuclear power plant construction to adequately supply the needs of this country. It’s as if they hate us. They can’t help seeing how the public is clamoring for lower prices and demanding that our government do something beneficial toward that end, but the stubborn blue donkeys won’t budge.

Why?!, you scream at the television, after every video clip of another blue donkey calmly, as if programmed into some kind of brain-dead trance, posits the notion that drilling will take years and it will only reduce the cost of gasoline by about one cent per gallon. “Hogwash!”, you yell. Start drilling today and at the very least, we can look forward to the day when we will get some relief. Experts in the oil industry, which does not include Democrat politicians, know that once new oil wells come online, the price will drop significantly. Competition always has that effect.

Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and other nations we buy from have us “over a barrel” – an oil barrel – and they know it. There’s no incentive for them to reduce their price. Have you seen how rich they’ve gotten? Why would anyone in their right mind give that up if they didn’t have to? But as soon as they see that we aren’t buying it anymore, they have to drop their price to stay in the game.

The definition of “insanity” is to continue doing the same thing over and over again expecting to get a different result. It’s hard not to suspect that the blue donkeys have a different agenda than the citizens suffering under the strain on their pocketbooks. I wonder what it could be.

Although, Maxine’s fellow Congresspersons were laughing behind her back, there are plenty others with the same mindset.

Vladimir Putin in Russia and Hugo Chavez in Venezuela took over the privately owned oil companies and nationalized them, kicking out the people whose blood, sweat and tears built those companies from scratch, and did not compensate them fairly for their property (which was stolen from them by their own government). So the crazies on the left don’t give a hoot about freedom for citizens or a free market. What’s yours is theirs if they want it.

Not only do Democrats want a government take-over of oil companies and refineries, they also want to take over the health care industry, the drug manufacturers and the insurance industry. They already control the largest portion of the education system and your retirment programSocial Security. Their report card is less than stellar. On handling the school system, they get an “F”. On handling Social Security, they get an “F-“, if there is such a thing.

Do we really want the government to take over anything else? I say ABSOLUTELY NOT. How about you?

And whatever happened to the Constitution? Democracy? Freedom? Capitalism? Free Markets?

“…that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Abraham Lincoln, The Gettysburg Address, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, November 19, 1863

There is no more time to do nothing.
