The President, Oil and Gas, and America
President Barack Obama continues to hurt oil and gas industry by eliminating oil & gas incentives and preferences with a fiscal 2012 federal budget request increasing direct taxes on industry by an estimated $3.472 billion next year and $43.612 billion over 10 years. US producers and refineries operating internationally would pay an additional $532 million in fiscal 2012 and $10.758 billion during 2012-21 under modified rules for dual-capacity taxpayers under the foreign tax credit.
There is a wave of instability engulfing the Middle Eastern Countries. America buys much of their oil and gas from these countries. So, let me get this straight…. We have a President crippling the oil and gas production in our country at a time when our other sources may be soon “off-limit”?
There is no other way to interpret the increasing anti-American methods used by this President to dismantle America and “transform” it to a leftist third world country. He and all of his henchmen should be found guilty of treason on many counts. For one thing, each time Congress stops them, they turn to the EPA and the Department of Justice to ignore the Congressional mandates. These two government groups have become the henchmen for this Administration. The second reason they are guilty of treason is that they are picking and choosing which laws to enforce and which laws they declare unconstitutional without any verdict by the courts. The third and most important reason is that the President involves himself on a regular basis in matters that are not the purvue of the President of the United States. We have seen everything from a beer summit which interfered with local authorities, to many secret meetings with union officials.
And lest we forget, for whatever reason, this President has refused to show a birth certificate. In my mind, the most significant part of this action, is that he has defied what has been required for every President – proof of natural citizenshp. Why should he be allowed to defy the Constitutional laws of this country?
If anyone doubts the peril this country is in, please have a look at a few of the headlines in the Wall Street Journal or the Telegraph News Paper in London. There have been hundreds of reports about this President and his administration ignoring the laws of the land and blazing new leftist trails using their own people such as the EPA, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, and the Department of Justice. These people have picked up the pace and it is increasingly difficult to keep up with all of the regulations and stripping away of laws that they are doing. There are over 157,000 regulations in this country now. The Departments, like EPA, have been given authority by the President to make regulations that are binding for the public. These are non-elected officials who are making law. Congress makes laws. This is a direct violation of our American system of law.
What to do? It is imperative we place more conservatives in the House, the Senate, and in the White House in 2012. By this, I mean no Marxists, no Socialists, and no experimental third party. The left is moving fast. Conservatives need to unite and stay focused. Watch for divisive efforts by the left. Question everything. America’s future is in our hands.
Our country is in danger, but not to be despaired of. Our enemies are numerous and powerful; but we have many friends, determining to be free, and heaven and earth will aid the resolution. On you depend the fortunes of America. You are to decide the important question, on which rest the happiness and liberty of millions yet unborn. Act worthy of yourselves.
