Romney wants it. Screw us. He is in bed with gas and oil. If elected see the mess more money for Big gas and oil. Our area will be decimated with gas wells.

With the high cost of living and taxes, itís tough to hold on to land that has been in the family for decades or even hundreds of years. Thereís a lot of love for the land, especially if you and your ancestors have walked it, worked it, planted it,cultivated it, lived on it and plan to die on it. Thatís a human life invested that can be taken away just because the taxes go unpaid. Blood, sweat and tears are on that land. I know. My family have lived here since before this was the USA and we are struggling. So I can understand why many would want to get money to help them pay their taxes and are looking toward leasing their land for fracking as a way to do that. But no amount of money is worth ruining our most precious resource,water, forever. You canít drink money. The Catskill Mountains of NY State- such a beautiful rural and wilderness area in upstate New York, with reservoirs that supply NY City with water. We have some of the purest freshwater in the world and want to keep it that way. This is what we are doing: http://www.sovereignpeople.net ... We have drafted a law to criminalize fracking in NY State because fracking should be viewed as a crime. Check out the entire website and documents. Originally starting in the heart of the Catskills, this is now the fastest growing anti- fracking movement across NY state. We need long term solutions to our energy policy with renewable resources, not short term profits with long term consequences of polluted land and water.
