Can we continue to afford to Ignore common sense?
Palin: “American environmentalists are preventing responsible development here at home while supporting irresponsible development overseas.”
She continues “Building an energy-independent America will mean a real economic stimulus. It will mean American jobs that can never be shipped overseas. Think about how much of our trade deficit is fueled by the oil we import — sometimes as much as half of the total. Through this massive transfer of wealth, we lose hundreds of billions of dollars a year that could be invested in our economy. Instead it goes to foreign countries, including some repressive regimes that use it to fund activities that threaten our security.”
That line says it all. There is no doubt that if Palin were president tomorrow, this economic slump would disappear and REAL hope would be in the air.
