For state's rural voters, energy is the issue

Full story: The Morning Call

Voters in this rugged slice of small-town Pennsylvania , where even going for groceries can mean a 10-mile trip, fall into two camps: those who want the government to find more oil and those who don't. Put ...

The biggest concern I have with any of this is expecting Mommy Government to actually come up with a viable efficient plan. How many of you really like what you see out of the Federal government on these types of issues?

It's a mad scramble before the election to promise, promise, promise. They get elected, then screw around until the last year of their term, then promise, promise, promise again.

Have we not HAD enough?

The best government is the one that governs least.

''All that more drilling will do is let people use more gasoline. And we don't even know what's out there,'' argued Michael Finelli, a Bethlehem violinist".

No, no, no. You have got it all wrong people. You have got to know what drives oil prices/oil futures. IT IS THE SPECULUATION itself that drives the ultimate price you pay at the pump! The idea to drill IS THE ANSWER because just the mere idea turned into the spoken word drives the prices down and will drastically reduce the price once the physical, tangible act of actually drilling occurs! Don't you all get it? The answer is here and now right in our very ears and to come to our eyes! OBama's "go green" strategy is just another Carter style way of handling the problem just as we had in the 70's with the gas embargo! Remember those times people?? Do you really want to go there again with promises of making it better some time in the distant future or here and now? That is all OBama is serving up to you on the "warm and fuzzy" platter regarding energy. You have a better chance of staying warm this winter by going to bed with a "warm and fuzzy" tedybear than you do affording heating oil or just hang out and wait until 2020 when "go green" has actually become affordable !!!!! You OBama voters are digging your very own grave!
