De­fy­ing the will of the Amer­i­can peo­ple

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - Bob Mehr Belle­vue,Wash­ing­ton

Our Found­ing Fathers gave us the great­est gov­ern­ment in the his­tory of man. It was a Gov­ern­ment of the Peo­ple by the Peo­ple, un­til now.

We have a ma­jor prob­lem with en­ergy in this coun­try — it is not that we don’t have any it is that the Demo­cratic Congress and its spe­cial in­ter­ests will not let us use the abun­dant sup­plies we have.

Two peo­ple in par­tic­u­lar — Speaker of the House – Nancy Pelosi Se­nate Ma­jor­ity Leader Harry Reid — are block­ing any vote on drilling.

Here are the facts: 3,000,000 pe­ti­tions and the polls show that al­most 80 per­cent of the Amer­i­can peo­ple want us to use all our sources of en­ergy — oil, coal, nat­u­ral gas, wind power, so­lar, etc.

Th­ese fig­ures mean over 8 out of 10 cit­i­zens want this to be done im­me­di­ately.

So much for a Gov­ern­ment of the Peo­ple by the Peo­ple. Mr. Reid and Mrs. Pelosi are stop­ping the Vote. Why? Be­cause the Spe­cial In­ter­ests-En­vi­ron­men­tal Groups, Ge­orge Soros and Move On.Org, etc. don’t want any­thing to help this coun­try. Years ago this would have been trea­son. Mr. Reid and Mrs. Pelosi should be thrown out of of­fice ASAP.
