Our nation’s arteries are being attacked. The arteries that supply us the energy we need to heat our homes, run our cars, manufacture our plastic and fuel our powerplants.

American’s oil and natural gas pipelines supply the U.S. with affordable, American energy. As the world’s leading producer of oil and natural gas, the U.S. finally controls its own energy destiny. No longer are we under the boot of OPEC, Venezuela or Russia. Instead, fracking and our nation’s oil and gas infrastructure has given us the ability to create our own path forward.

That is all being put at risk by those trying to prevent oil and natural gas from leaving the ground. Knowing that their “renewable energy” is not affordable or widely available, radical environmentalist are openly trying to raise oil and gas prices to make their wind and solar competitive — two industries that would not exist without government subsidies.

American energy is here and now. We produce more oil and natural gas than any other country on earth. Why in the world would we want to harm our ability to control our own future by bending to the will of environmentalist that drive gas powered cars, make calls on their oil dependent plastic phones while charging their computers on natural gas powerplant created electric. We need to ignore these hypocrites and instead support the reliable, affordable energy that is here and now.
