How about the Democratic Party! Oil prices are based on supply and demand. In 2001, President Bush asked to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The Democrats in Congress have blocked every attempt since then. California Democrats blocked new offshore drilling in California. World demand for oil is growing and the Democrats blame Bush?
I am a nature lover and would not want to endanger wildlife; however, there has been little damage to the North Slope oil field, and why would the Democrats think the oil companies would treat the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge any different?
So we turn to ethanol instead of new oil wells and the price of corn and other grains goes up to the point that people in other countries are going to starve. Thus we have Democratic Party policy that results in "Save fish and wildlife and starve people." I hope for the Democrats' sake that wildlife and fish are granted the right to vote, because any human of sound mind would not starve innocent people, even as an indirect result of their policy.
Never miss a local story.
