We may never understand why Liberals are so opposed to President Trump’s plans. He clearly wants to put Americans first. He even wants to land deals that will create jobs, wealth, and prosperity for everyone.
So why oppose all that?
Perhaps Democrats want Americans to fail. They have big, powerful, foreign donors who would profit if the United States suffered. Or perhaps, they just don’t want to see everyday citizens thrive. They are elitists, after all.
Either way, they are sure to complain, after Trump made this landmark announcement about the Gulf of Mexico.
From Conservative Tribune:
Trump’s Interior Department recently announced what stands to be a record-breaking sale of off-shore oil and gas leases in the Gulf of Mexico, the largest such sale in U.S. history.
The auction of the leases, scheduled to take place March 21, would open up some 77.3 million acres to offshore drilling for oil and gas off the coasts of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida…
It was estimated by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management that the blocks up for sale contained potentially 210 million to 1.2 billion barrels of oil and from 550 million to 4.4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
Be sure that if a democratic president landed this deal, the media would applaud it. But I’m guessing the hacks at CNN will find something at fault with Trump.
I’m sure before a second passes, CNN will mention the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010. They will make it seem like drilling for oil and gas in the Gulf of Mexico is a bad idea, because of one accident eight years ago.
They will fail to mention that off-shore drilling goes on around the world, with little incident. They will also fail to mention the oil spill happened on Obama’s watch. Seems like environmentalists aren’t even good at their job of “protecting” the earth. Let us not forget that the Deepwater Horizon tragedy, by the way, ignored hundreds of safety requirements, leading to the spill. And where were CNN and Obama then?
Opening up this region to more drilling is a good thing. Yes, there are dangers, as in every industry. But when companies follow the laws and safety standards, the risk is low.
Reports indicate the this will provide billions of more dollars in revenue for American companies. An influx of energy resources will also mean more competition and lower prices. Sure, OPAC might not like this news, but this is America. We have the right to harvest our resources for the betterment of our society.
