      Oil Prices Could Collapse: Certainly possible. Especially as soon as Obama gets elected as POTUS. Most likely it'll happen. Opec will have accomplished its mission and re-open up the spigot in this super-heated, global oil market. And if the U.S. tools up and starts drilling one has to know that Opec will intentionally increase production more so for the purpose of driving the price down. Just to make our U.S. domestic oil production no longer profitable. This is the brutality of the free, wide open global oil markets.

      That being said, we should drill. We must shoot for a goal of producing 75-85% of our own oil within the next 10-15 years. We'd be foolish not to pull that God given resource out of the ground and sell it while its still valuable.

      And we must recognize the hard fact of manipulation by the Opec Ministers. And the fact that this manipulation is starting to effect our economy in a much more serious way. Its gone on way too long. An economic attack can be just as devastating to a nation as a military attack. This is an attack and we must find a way to effectively combat it. Darvin Dowdy

      Obama stirred up his supporters last week with the threat of $12 per gallon gasoline if we go to war with Iran. Yet, he still refuses to allow increased domestic production. The guy plays on your fear in hopes of getting your vote but has no solution for fixing the problem other than increaseing taxes, nationalizing the oil industry, regulating and suing.

      His solution is to sit down with all terrorist and "negotiate." How the heck do you negotiate with someone who just wants to end your existance?

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
