Do you support to domestic oil drilling?
To become independent of foreign oil forever, and to reduce gas prices?
Absolutely. Allow drilling here in an environmentally-friendly way, and continue to look for alternatives to fossil fuels as we do so. I had read recently that the U.S. has oil and natural gas reserves available equal to a supply that would provide us with enough fuel, at current usage, to last two hundred years. We are hostages to oil-producers that are not our friends and who could shut off our supplies at a moment's notice to 'punish' us. I am old enough to remember the 1973 Oil Embargo by OPEC which caused shortages in America and gas lines at the stations. Drill, baby, drill.
I agree with you. I really don't understand why shouldn't we. I guess threre is too much political game going on, and the democrats try to appease to their typical electorat.
We would drill in the Africans........
We would drill in the Alaskans...............
If , we would do this thing, in the name of another................
why not in the name of "ourselves:"

How do we make sure this doesn't happen again you ask? Deregulate further and open more of the gulf to drilling. That could only makes sense to those in the oil companies back pockets.
