    This email is being sent individually to my Senators and Congressman, hope you do the same.
    CC: Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Glen Beck, Neil Cavuto

    Dear:
    Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio)
    Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio)
    Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich (D-Ohio)

    With all the danger we in the USA face resulting from the constant conflict in the energy rich mid east, why oh why don’t you propose drilling in our own country. It is long overdue that we become self sufficient with our own oil.

    The question is: Will you take action to allow drilling in the US?

    Here's an astonishing read. Important and verifiable information. (See Link at bottom):

    About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program on oil and one of the Forbes Bros. was the guest. The host said to Forbes, "I am going to ask you a direct question and I would like a direct answer; how much oil does the U.S. have in the ground?" Forbes did not miss a beat, he said, "more than all the Middle East put together." Please read below.

    The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April 2008 that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since 1995) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota, western South Dakota, and extreme eastern Montana ..... check THIS out:

    The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska 's Prudhoe Bay , and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... at $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5...3 trillion.


    "When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea.." says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature's financial analyst.

    "This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years," reportsThe Pittsburgh Post Gazette. It's a formation known as the Williston Basin , but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.' It stretches from Northern Montana , through North Dakota and into Canada . For years, U. S. oil exploration has been considered a dead end. Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken's massive reserves..... and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels. And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!

    That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years straight. And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should - because it's from 2006!

    U.. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006

    Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world. It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction. In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted. With this motherload of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore drilling?

    They reported this stunning news: We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth.. Here are the official estimates:

    - 8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia

    - 18-times as much oil as Iraq
    - 21-times as much oil as Kuwait
    - 22-times as much oil as Iran

    - 500-times as much oil as Yemen
    - and it's all right here in the Western United States .


    HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this? Because the environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil! Again, we are letting a small group of people dictate our lives and our economy.....WHY?

    James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels untapped. That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post.
    Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price - even with this find? Think again! It's all about the competitive marketplace, - it has to. Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists?

    Got your attention yet? Now, while you're thinking about it, do this:

    Pass this along. If you don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the next time you complain about gas prices - by doing NOTHING, you forfeit your right to complain.

    Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you sent this to every one in your address book.

    By the way...this is all true. Check it out at the link below!!!
    GOOGLE it, or follow this link. It will blow your mind.

    Perhaps the environmentalists and their lib political buddies should walk to work (those that do actually work). We should be drilling anywhere we can. The procedures and current regulations on drilling make it safe and efficient.

    Simply changing our policy will bring down the price of oil, and scare the crap out of the middle east countries and oil dealers.

    Drill here and drill now!

    Although the thought of being independent of foreign oil is enticing going back to 19th century technology in not the forward thinking the United States needs to keep us a world power.

    I think our political leaders have sold us out. Why, after the oil "shortage" of 1970's, have we not had leadership from Washington to move our country from dependance on oil to new technology for transportation and powering our homes and factories?

    I do not see this as a Republican or Democratic issue. We have had leaders from both parties in the last 40 years, but very little leadership in this field.

    If America would make this a priority this would put Americans back to work in a new expanding area. This would create jobs in the manufacturing and the design side of the work force.

    One of Americas strenghts has been the invention of new technology then the implementation of that technology for the workers of America and the people of the world.

    Just my opinion. doug hubbart

    When the comander and chief ingnored the federal courts and is in contempet and nothing happens I don't see any reason why any oil company needs to abide by Obama's rules. Hia authority is nolonger good. The only reason he has control is becaue you are told he has control. In reality that is not so. Oil companies don't need his ok any longer unless the don't want to drill to keep the cost going up.
    If Obams can ingnor federal judges then he does not go by the constitution. His power is no longer. He willingly gave it up.

    When you consider the oil the United States uses on a given day, and also consider the amount we extract and process, it is a serious matter. Both economically and militarily.

    We are not prepared to switch to an alternate fuel at this time, nor will we be in the near future.

    There are multiple areas that we can open up to drilling. It's not just the Western fields.

    If you do not recognize that we must do whatever is possible to secur those needs domestically, especially if they are indeed available, then you are the crazy.

    You mean the Federal Government, since most "leases" are on Government property?
