Liberalism Run Amuck: Gasoline Tops $4 Per Gallon!

By John W. Lillpop

America’s inability to free itself from dependence on oil from the Middle East may go down as one of the greatest failures in U.S. political history. Even the most generous historian will find it difficult to justify our continued reliance on a region of the world that has been in constant turmoil for 50 years.

History, if chronciled honestly, will note that the Democrat Party adamantly opposed measures that would increase the supply of oil.

Why is that the case?

Because arrogant elitists like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Al Gore have one priority when it comes to gasoline: Get Americans out of their automobiles!

Warped liberals believe that the unwashed masses can damn well walk, skateboard, bike, hike, or preferably, not navigate at all.

Except when headed to the polls to vote for Democrats, of course.

Liberals have created the current energy crisis in order to save cross-eyed mosquitoes, a rare species which is apparently more important than energy independence and the well being of middle class citizens!

Mind you, arrogant elitists like Al Gore, the Clintons, Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama will always drive, or be chauffeured around, in gas guzzling limousines, SUVs, and Hummers, regardless of prices at the pump or gasoline supply.

It is your car or SUV that Nancy Pelosi and Al Gore want off the road!

In advancing their "no-combustion engine for the middle class" agenda, liberals obviously exacerbate the energy crisis by toiling 24/7 to do the following:

* Obstruct all oil drilling

* Obstruct added refinery capacity via extreme environmental regulations

* Obstruct nuclear energy and other reasonable alternative energy sources

* Tax “windfall profits,” and implement other anti-business steps that stifle efforts to increase oil supply

What about the demand side? Liberals are just as mindless there, by opting to add federal and state taxes to the cost of gasoline at every opportunity.

Clearly, $4 per gallon gasoline is the product of liberalism run amok.

So, the question voters will have to answer this November is:

Are you ready to wait in long lines just to pay $5 for a gallon of gasoline?

If so, vote for ‘’obstruct and tax’’ Democrats!
