Create jobs, decrease foreign dependency
There already is a pipeline in the US. Our society requires oil to run. The program hasn’t been approved, which makes one wonder why since we can decrease our need of foreign oil while bringing jobs to the U.S. Would that be a good thing to bring jobs to the U.S., lower our requirements of foreign oil and increase the tax base, employee revenue that can help many local economies?
One thing to look at: If we’re in worse condition than we were in four years ago, people voted for the change and they have it. Maybe we the people need to look at our role in the change in reference to how this country became great.
Change should equal the opportunity to work hard, have the American dream of free enterprise and the responsibility to remember the our government is of the people, by the people and for the people. This country was built on building something, and maybe it’s time to bring change that has we the people involved in the process and hold those we elect accountable.
