Support For Exploration Increases Among Democrats and Liberals

The American people are speaking heading into the election, they favor more exploration and drilling.

Pew Research has posted the following results.
It seems like liberals are leading the way in the change of mood in the country!
Partisan Gap over Energy Exploration Disappears
Much of the increase in support for energy exploration has come among groups that previously viewed this as a less important priority than energy conservation - young people, liberals, independents, Democrats, women and people who have attended college.

"The public's changing energy priorities are most evident in the growing percentage that views increased energy exploration - including mining and drilling, as well as the construction of new power plants - as a more important priority for energy policy than increased conservation and regulation. Nearly half (47%) now rates energy exploration as the more important priority, up from 35% in February. The proportion saying it is more important to increase energy conservation and regulation has declined by 10 points (from 55% to 45%)."

Wow! How exciting! The oil companies, who already do a lot of exploring, are setting you up for more subsidies paid from your pocket, and you fall for it.

Hey Scott! Remember when The Republicans were bad mouthing Saddam and his oil-for-foods corruption? Well it turns out that the only people to be convicted in the scam so far were good old Texas Republicans. You were sucked in once more by the lies of Rush, Hannity and Co., and Faux News.

While you continue to repeat this crap claiming liberals are to blame for high gas prices, your own party continues to screw you.

While big oil makes 8 to 9 cents a gallon for gas profit, the US government gets 25 percent right off the top on all oil leases in the US then they tax gasoline, the the state taxes it then the locals tax it. It seems to me that big government has the most to gain off drill here drill now. And before you Libs write that I am wrong, do the research it all can be found at GOOGLE.com.
