It’s time for us to have a real Energy Plan for theUnited States of America.
There’s more money made by big oil from importing and not drilling than if we’d allow drilling and encourage small businesses to do the work that big oil doesn’t seem to want to do.
Former President Jimmy Carter, who set up the Energy Department to free us from Foreign Oil Dependency, took us from importing roughly 27%to importing over 70% of our oil. How’s that working forAmerica?
Let’s begin by dissolving the Department of Energy and calling together our leaders in the energy fields of oil, coal, natural gas, wind, solar, and nuclear, as well as manufacturing sectors, to come up with both the ideas and plans for a REAL energy plan. They are the ones who will ultimately produce the jobs to restoreAmerica.
We must develop and carry out this plan to begin within weeks of the next legislative session. Then pass the legislation that hasAmerica’s Companies implementing these plans that will begin our climb out of the energy hole we have gotten into over the last 40+ years.
We can take oil from many undeveloped areas, as many sources say we have over a 250-year supply of oil, and we need to use it.
We need to cut the time of processing applications for new drilling, to no more than 120 days from the date of applying for a permit to drill, to the issuance of permits.
We need to open up ANWAR inAlaska, the Gulf and oil shale to American companies and put Americans back to work, instead of sending our money to countries that promote terrorism.
Natural gas must also be used, in producing power, in more vehicles throughout the country – especially in fleet services, and for building more efficient homes. We’ll also give NO SUBSIDIES to any industry. Try to remember, we’re supposed to have Free Enterprise.
We must dissolve the EPA and other regulatory agencies. Then turn over all regulation and enforcement to constitutionally allowed Branches of Government. Congress is the only constitutionally allowed law making body. We must rescind all regulations/laws that have been written by the former agencies.
If we follow these few simple recommendations, we can be out of the hole we’ve dug in less than 1 decade. Cheaper energy will create American jobs not just in oil related fields but throughout the economy, as the prices for all our goods and services will drop as a result of low priced energy. This, along with tax policy changes, will bring manufacturing back toAmericaand makeAmericastrong again.
The low price of energy will also give us real security as we will no longer be transferring our wealth over to our enemies, thus enabling them to finance their war against us, by flying planes in to our buildings.
We’ll be able to bring all of this about with one simple – to Restore the Constitution as the REAL GUIDE TO OUR REPUBLIC, and thereby remove the Federal Government from having the control it was never meant to have over the States and our lives.
