Liberals Protest New Jobs And American Energy Independence
The Keystone Pipeline would create at least 20,000 new American jobs and significantly reduce US dependence on foreign oil. It’s going to happen with or without American involvement. Canada has made it clear that if the US isn’t interested, they’ll reach out to China.
China is one of the worst countries in the world on environmental issues. So why, WHY? are liberals protesting the Keystone Pipeline? Do they really trust China more than the United States?
Thousands march in D.C. to protest Keystone Pipeline
Thousands of environmental activists marched in Washington Sunday to protest plans for the Keystone XL pipeline.
Organizers of “Forward on Climate,” who planned the event, told Reuters about 35,000 people from 30 states protested in the cold weather in what they said was the biggest climate rally in U.S. history.
If it gets government approval, Keystone would carry oil from Canada to refiners in Texas.
Supporters say the pipeline could create 20,000 jobs, but opponents say the environmental risk is too great.
Protesters also said that President Barack Obama should put a stop on the pipeline to honor his inaugural pledge to act on climate change.
American energy independence is about more than gas prices and jobs. It’s a national security issue as well. The fact that Obama’s liberal base doesn’t understand that proves once and for all that the asylum is truly being run by the inmates.
God help us all.
