Utilize our natural resources

Some experts say that the BP oil spill is the result of militant environmentalists and their lackeys in Congress who have forced the oil companies to drill for oil miles offshore, in water that’s a mile deep. They explain that there is no reason to drill in such risky waters when the largest oil reserve on the planet lies beneath federally owned land in the Rockies.

Leasing the public land to American oil companies would help reduce our national debt.

However, instead of exploration and development of our own natural resources in our own Western states, our politicians have given in to the environmentalists and have placed that public land off-limits.

Earlier this month, the Obama administration pulled 77 oil-lease contracts granted by the Bush administration after seven full years of rigorous study and debate. Instead, they want to impose confusing, controversial and costly cap-and-trade legislation that many feel will decimate our already hobbled economy.
