Please read this column by Republican Senator John Cornyn. The other day I heard about a speech he gave on the Senate floor and was impressed, but didn't get around to finding a link to it. Lo and behold I received a link to his article by email today.
He writes "Senate Republicans have introduced...The Amercian Enrgery Production Act" which would "allow access (to) 24 billion barrels of oil, enough to supply America for 5 years with no foreign imports. It would also provide for authorization to explore for American oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS)."
Finally, a US Senator who is rational, logical and actually makes sense. If all Republicans made this much sense they wouldn't be in so much trouble. I have no doubt the Democrats and RINO's will do everything in their power to block this legislation; but maybe, just maybe, if Americans hear about this brilliant plan they may start demanding the sort of action from our elected officials that makes sense.
Thank you, Senator Cornyn.
