Dedicated To Restoring Our Government to Citizens' Control

Cagle Post: America Needs An Energy Solution

President Obama and his liberal allies in Congress have no solutions to America’s energy crisis. Gas prices are out of control and hurting the pockets of hard-working Americans. In California, gas prices are over $5 in some areas; in Florida, some people are paying nearly $6 a gallon! America needs energy solutions now or the situation will only get worse.

Back in 2008 Citizens United Productions produced “We Have The Power,” hosted by Newt and Callista Gingrich. We dive into a myriad of energy solutions to help inform Americans about the possibilities that we have right here at home. We need to explore the vast amount of oil and gas in the Outer Continental Shelf, Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), as well as our other vital energy resources including hydroelectric power, wind power, oil shale, natural gas, gas hydrates, hydrogen, biofuels, solar power, clean coal and nuclear power.

“We Have The Power” highlights America’s need to readopt our World War II mentality of “Do it all, do it now” by tapping into all of our abundant energy resources. However, “Do it all, do it now” does not mean handing out pork projects and subsidies to favored liberal constituencies through a $38.6 billion green jobs loan program. “Do it all” does not include Chicago-style, pay-to-play schemes using taxpayer funds to reward campaign contributors – like George Kaiser, the largest shareholder of the now-bankrupt Solyndra. Nor does it mean the government picking our energy winners and losers instead of the free market, where bad ideas can fail without leaving taxpayers on the hook.
