The current President vetoed the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline and yesterday, the Senate failed to get enough votes to override that veto. That was expected and while I was certainly hoping that five additional Democrats would come over to our side, it didn’t happen. Will the GOP be able to get it passed while this President is still in office? We’ll have to see.
Of course, liberals are rejoicing over the GOPs failure to get enough votes to override the veto. I guess they don’t want jobs, even if many of them are temporary created for working class Americans. I guess they don’t want our ports to prosper by transporting the oil to other countries. I guess they don’t want to take steps and be a part of allowing freedom loving countries to be independent of Middle Eastern oil.
I’m about to take up a new mantra: If you’re against fossil fuels, you hate the middle class and you hate the poor. I could also say that you’re racist bigots, but I don’t think I could make that stand, even though liberals hurl that at conservatives whenever they please because they have put themselves in charge of defining racism. And it sometimes changes hourly.
I’m not against developing new sources of energy, not in the least. In fact, our nation’s oil companies are doing that even as I write this. But we can’t afford to eliminate fossil fuels. Energy produced from fossil fuels is cheaper. The so-called green energy that the liberals advocate, including the current President, is expensive. Most of us can’t afford to totally go green.
I recently took a vacation, yes a vacation, to the northern Gulf Coast. I drove my SUV and purchased about 2-1/2 tanks of gasoline that I would not have purchased if I had stayed home. I also ate out every meal. In other words, I pumped extra money into the economy down there, including generous tipping of servers. I stayed at a nice hotel where I had complete control of the temperature in my room. I benefitted because I really needed to get away and my destination benefited because I was able to pump some money into their economy.
If the price of gas was what the liberals and the current President want it to be, I might have stayed at home. If it was costing a fortune to heat my house, like the liberals want, I might also have stayed at home. Due to the current President and the liberals, I’m already having to pay a fortune for health insurance and getting less than what I had. But because I have worked hard in the past and continue to work hard, I was able to afford a modest vacation to the northern Gulf Coast, about a half days drive from my home in the Birmingham, Alabama area.
So, with liberals, including the current President hating fossil fuels and wanting to do away with them before a viable, cost-effective alternative is developed should indicate to even those who operate with only one brain cell, that the current President and his henchmen are anti-middle class. They want us to drive cars that can barely go above 50 miles per hour. They want us to be uncomfortable in our homes because the price to heat and cool our homes to our comfort level is unaffordable.
To those of you who think that liberals/democrats/progressives are champions of the middle class, you are horribly misinformed. They’re not your friends. They want you to suffer in your own home. They want you to pay more for health insurance while getting less. They hate you, they hate you, and they hate you. They think you’re too stupid to make your own decisions. They want to control every aspect of your life.
The purpose of this post is to demonstrate how liberals are anti-middle class due to their energy policies. Of course, I could go on and on, demonstrating how the liberals are anti-middle class. That will be for future posts and won’t stop until I have convinced everyone that liberals/Democrats/progressives and anything but pro-middle class.
