Two Sides

George Orwell Would Be Proud

Can you believe the world’s leading superpower funds both sides of the war on terror? Each month the U.S. government spends BILLIONS supporting our fighting men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan, yet we spend even more money buying oil from governments that pay protection to al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.

Does this make sense?

Of course it doesn’t, particularly when we have the energy we need right here in our own backyard.

We’ve waited patiently for a year while Congress debated the stimulus package and then healthcare reform. In the meantime, discussion of our dangerous dependence on foreign oil was put on the backburner. And we continued to import nearly two-thirds of the oil we use.

We aren’t going to wait any longer.
