There is only one party that has historically and continually blocked America’s energy independence, and that is the Democratic Party. Over the past 30 years:
Democrats have blocked the development of new sources of petroleum.
Democrats have blocked drilling in ANWR.
Democrats have blocked drilling off the coast of Florida.
Democrats have blocked drilling off of the east coast.
Democrats have blocked drilling off of the west coast.
Democrats have blocked drilling off the Alaskan coast.
Democrats have blocked building oil refineries.
Democrats have blocked clean nuclear energy production.
Democrats have blocked clean coal production.
Were are the new jobs and our Energy Independence going to come from if we don’t actively pursue the resources we have here in our own back yard.
