Tell Congress: Open Offshore Drilling, Support the XL Pipeline

Every oil-producing country in the world is drilling in the Florida Keys, Gulf of Mexico, and along the California coast -- except the United States!

We have more oil in America than in the entire Middle East.

North Dakota and Montana have an estimated 3 to 4.3 billion barrels of recoverable oil available, and it could be extracted at an approximate cost to Americans of only $16 a barrel.


Studies indicate there may be more than one trillion barrels of oil in oil shale, a type of sedimentary rock found in Wyoming, Utah and Colorado's Western Slope.
THAT'S NEARLY THREE TIMES THE RESERVES IN SAUDI ARABIA. The USGS also predicts that there are up-to 16 billion barrels of oil in Alaska's ANWR region.

We could, and SHOULD, be back to drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.


We
SHOULD be drilling off of our other coasts (since China and Russia already are).

We
SHOULD be drilling in Alaska.

We
SHOULD be converting shale oil from the mountains in Colorado.

We
SHOULD be supporting the Keystone XL pipeline.

But environmentalists claim that
ALL these actions would damage the environment, and simply won't allow this to happen. Instead of trying to find a minimal impact solution, they simply say no. And because of this, Americans are paying the price at the pump. And Obama does NOTHING...except talk about how we should be drilling, and we should be creating jobs, and we should be less dependent on foreign oil.

With unrest in the Middle East and a President who refuses to drill here, our future is clearly $5 per gallon and higher. HOW HIGH WILL IT GO? $8 per gallon? $10 per gallon?Or...higher?

The U.S. domestic oil industry has pretty much been shut out of its own country by the President who claims he wants to create jobs and ease our dependence on foreign oil.


Every oil-producing country in the world is drilling in the Florida Keys, Gulf of Mexico, and along the California coast---EXCEPT THE UNITED STATES!!

Obama won't issue permits for American drilling, but he has promised Brazil a $3 BILLION grant to drill for their OWN oil... off of our coasts!

Opening up drilling off the coasts, in the mountains of North Dakota and Montana as well as Alaska could
immediately reduce the price of oil.

America could have a sufficient oil supply for the next 400 years. 

Your lawmakers need to hear from you on this issue: please take action with Conservative Action Alerts and your fellow Americans and DEMAND that Congress vote for legislation that would open domestic offshore oil drilling and allow for the Keystone XL Pipeline to end our dependence of foreign oil! Please sign, send, and share this petition!

We need to use our own natural energy resources to lower the cost of living and produce more jobs. i know that it will reduce the amount of foreign oil that we buy, but I hate giving profit to others that don't like us.

Now's the time to put Americans back to work and divest ourselves, as an autonomous nation, from the longstanding stranglehold foreign nations have had on us. I look forward to you joining with me in advocating FOR the Keystone Pipeline as well as opening up drilling in other areas within our borders. I AM in favor of tying this legislation to the short-term extension of the Transportaion Funding Bill. President Obama talks of working togethers in a bi-partisan way. It's is now time to "put up" or "shut up".

The Keystone Pipeline is a vital link to our energy future. It would not be in our national interest to provide this energy source to China, since that country does not act in our best interests and seeks world domination at the expense of the peace and freedom America is founded upon.
