Democrats Following In Hugo Chavez's Communist Shadow

Today President Bush outlined a four point energy policy. Bush proposed lifting the moratorium on off shore drilling. Bush proposed opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Bush proposed lifting restriction on shale exploration in the Green River Basin. A final proposal was to ease regulatory processes to open more refining capabilities. John McCain proposed earlier in the year to place a moratorium on the federal gasoline tax. All of these proposals will reduce the price Americans pay at the pump for gasoline.

Gasoline is running at over $4.00 per gallon. Democrats promised an energy plan that would reduce pump prices if only we would get them the majority in Congress back in 2006. They never delivered on this promise. Earlier this month Obama said he wanted the price of gasoline to rise. He believes that Americans need to change their habits. Commuting to work and taking family vacations are habits Americans need to change.

The party of no ideas rejected the Presidents energy plan outright. Obama said "This is not something that's going to give consumers short-term relief and it is not a long-term solution to our problems with fossil fuels generally and oil in particular". What Obama does not understand is that the economy is being crippled by rising energy and food costs. Obama does not understand that oil is over priced due to speculation; reduce the speculation that oil costs will continue to increase and we can burst the oil bubble. However, the Democrats do not want the bubble to burst. They need the economy to tank in order to make gains in their majority. If only we were to pass legislature promising the increase of oil supply we could stop the speculation and oil futures would move lower. Actually start producing more oil and increasing supply and refining capabilities and oil cost would reverse course. However the new Communist Party of America (Democrats) reject the energy plans outright.

The Democrats would rather follow in Hugo Chavez's footsteps. They wish to Nationalize our oil companies. Government would then control Americans. Our government would no longer be for the people by the people. People would not control the government. The true Communist beliefs are coming through. This is not a proposal to socialize our country but rather an attempt to make our Republic a Communism.

Europe has many Socialist governments and none of them Nationalize their businesses. The only countries that nationalize businesses are Communist regimes like Hugo Chavez. We already know Obama and the Democrats want higher energy costs. Now Obama and the Demcrats want to control the flow of oil. In this way, they will be able to play politics with our economy and energy. The Democrats have no idea how to develop a coherent energy plan so they demonize the oil companies and then try to take them over. What is going on in the democratic party. Are they that certain of election in 2008 that they feel making Communistic overtures will go by unnoticed?

One thing is certain; in 2008 Americans are demanding change. But can America live with the change desired by Obama and the Democrats? This type of change is not change we can believe in.
