U.S. drilling only viable option




Our economy and standard of living are being destroyed by high taxes, over-regulation and extreme energy costs. Presidential candidate Representative Ron Paul has an energy plan. He introduced The Affordable Gas Price Act (H.R. 2415) on May 21, 2007. This bill would suspend federal gas taxes when gas prices rise over $3.00 per gallon and allow drilling offshore and ANWR and speed refinery building.

The 1950ís Congressional Reese Committee discovered that elite socialists were working to reduce our standard of living so we could merge into a world government. In 1966, The Hudson Instituteís ďReport from Iron MountainĒ revealed that globalists planned to use the cents per gallon.

The Environmental Protection Agency regulations (created by Presidential Executive Order) along with environmental extremists have largely stopped oil exploration, nuclear power plants and refinery building. The result is $4.00 gas despite the fact we have a 300-year supply of crude oil and coal gasification and liquefaction technology that could make us energy independent.

Wind and solar power will not solve our energy needs and both require a 24/7 backup. Despite United Nationís propaganda, carbon energy is not causing global warming, but is controlled by the sunís cycles.

We must drill here, drill now and pass H.R. 2415 to unlock our energy supplies and stop the socialists plan to merge us into a global government.

When was this bill created?
It's been over $4 for a while.
I don't think the "elite socialists", whatever that means, are trying to do anything as bad as that commision says.
Calling glowing warming a fact, well really a false fact, doesn't mean it didn't happen.

Personally I am for offshore drilling, nuclear, and coal.
I am against ANWR though.

I would like some evidence, no "look it up" doesn't count, that the evil socialists, like the ones in Erupoe(sic) are trying to merge anything.

Why is it alright to drill offshore, in a beautiful arid wildernes, etc, but not in a frozen waste land?

yeah, god forbid we have an oil spill on land which could be pretty much contained in one locality when we could have one in the water where the oil could spread out all over the place in the oceanic tides....:rolleyes:

Ron Paul Introduces Affordable Gas Price Act H.R.2631

summary


reform government policies that artificially inflate the price of gas.


repeals the federal moratorium on offshore drilling and allows oil exploration in the ANWR reserve in Alaska.


ensure that the National Environmental Policy Act’s environmental impact statement requirement will no longer be used as a tool to force refiners to waste valuable time and capital on nuisance litigation.


Affordable Gas Price Act also provides tax incentives to encourage investment in new refineries.


Affordable Gas Price Act suspends the federal gasoline tax any time the average gas prices exceeds $3.00 per gallon. During the suspension, the federal government will have a legal responsibility to ensure the federal highway trust fund remains funded.


raises the amount of mileage reimbursement not subject to taxes, and, during times of high oil prices, provides the same mileage reimbursement benefit to charity and medical organizations as provided to businesses.


terminates the application of title IV of the Trade Act of 1974 to Russia and Khazaskin, allowing Americans to enjoy the benefits of free trade with these oil-producing nations.


Finally, the Affordable Gas Price Act creates a federal study on how the abandonment of the gold standard and the adoption of freely floating currencies are affecting the price of oil.

I found a letter written by me about 6 years ago yesterday, and I was talking about gas prices going up. I seriously LOLed.

I love this act.

Gingrich covers this topic nicely in his book 'Drill here, Drill now, Pay less". Ron Paul being a sponsor makes it that much sweeter.

But since Ron Paul "is not the leader of this party", I'm sure this bill will get overlooked and (at best) end up in committee, while we're paying $6 / gal for regular unleaded.

When (not if) gas prices hit that high, it just gives the C4L that much more of a talking point if the Act hasn't been enacted, to show that Congress could have helped the American people, but didn't.

Give us the liberty to help ourselves find substitutes.

Stop illegalizing the home distilling of ethanol.

Stop illegalizing the growing of hemp.

Stop EPA and IRS regulations that punish people using unregistered/untaxed fuels.

Stop the cartel protectionist regulations that make startup autocompanies like Tesla Motors unable to compete against the big corporate manufacturers.
