This is about survival.
Enjoying the lower gas prices? Hoping to watch them edge lower? Thinking maybe, just maybe you might be able to take that Christmas trip??? Think again, Opec, our masters are planning to cut production, why, because they can and they like to see us squirm. It is not because they desperately need another new palace, it is not because they suddenly have decided they are going to feed their people, nope, it is because they really liked seeing those prices and they really liked watching the people of America suffer and they really want to see it again. Now don’t start looking for the democrats to save us, remember, when things get tough the democrats go on vacation. Including one who is running for president, as a matter of fact when the people were calling and demanding a vote on drilling he was in Hawaii and could not be bothered.
This election is not about who has the better smile, it is not about who has the better rhetoric, this election is about survival, it is about how much money will you have in your pockets after you fill up the tank. The democrats in their warped world view seem to think we should pay as much as some other countries, I say if their people are to stupid or lazy to demand their leaders do something they deserve what they get. Now the question is are we just like them? Will we reelect the same people who went on vacation while we couldn’t afford to go around the block? Are we so big in to the party is everything mentality that we would elect to suffer just so one party could rule the roost? I don’t know about you but I am sick and damn tired of OPEC jerking my chain. We all know that when gas prices rise everything else follows right along behind it. That is except salaries.
Now you tell me is your boss doing so good he can afford to give you a raise to meet the gas and food price increase? Is he doing so good that he can afford to keep you on knowing everything is about to go up again and no end in site? Let’s get real here, we cannot afford for the gas prices to go up and not have someone in a leadership role that is willing to back OPEC down and drill here. Look at your bank account, look in your wallet, count up all that change, can you afford for gas prices to rise yet again? Can you afford $3.00, $4.00, $5.00? I know I can’t. We simply cannot afford to vote back in people who spend most of their time on vacation and the only time they are willing to hand out help it is to Wall Street, this is not Monopoly, where you can get up and stretch your legs and then go back. This is real life, this is your life, this is about tomorrow and the next day, and this is about survival.
