According to NPR, the Rocky Mountains contain three times the oil of Saudi Arabia.
An oil field was just recently discovered in the South Dakota/Montana region which has three times as much oil as the Rockies.
There is also a tremendous amount of oil in the ANWR region.
All that oil, and we don't drill for it.
Because of pressure from environmentalists.
We could be winning the battle for energy independence, but instead, we choose to lose, and thus forfeit our profits into the hands of Jihadists and Communists the world over.
I repeat, we are losing because we choose to lose, and we do so, primarily because of pressure from environmentalist groups.
That's like a football team choosing to lose because of pressure from their own cheerleaders.
