Energy Policy Lunacy

Dear Editor:

The price of oil is over $100 a barrel and the price of gas is $3.25 a gallon.  The idiots in Washington want to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to build a wind farm in Whitley County to generate electricity that costs 3 to 4 times more than what it costs with traditional generating plants.

Such lunacy is the result of a national energy policy based on voodoo science that climate change is man made.

It is this same energy policy that has killed 600,000 jobs in the proposed oil pipeline from Canada and oil production in America.  Add to that all the jobs lost by Obama’s off-shore drilling moratorium and the lunacy becomes down right scary.  Democrats don’t give a rat’s petunia about jobs in America unless they are make-work jobs like building wind mills that are too expensive to operate and solar panels that nobody will buy.

We need to defeat these Democrats who continue this onslaught of our country and our way of life and those Republicans who stand idly by while it happens. Wasteful spending pursuing a failed energy policy is the path to the demise of America.

Patriotism is as much a virtue as justice, and is as necessary for the support of societies as natural affection is for the support of families. — Benjamin Rush, letter to His Fellow Countrymen: On Patriotism, October 20, 1773
