Why Aren’t We Drilling for Oil in the US?

There is more oil beneath US land than beneath the lands of Saudi Arabia or Russia.  So why aren’t we drilling?  Green politics, of course!

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.

  1. Perhaps not the best title, but while it’s great there’s been an increase in oil and gas development in the US, it’s all been on private lands. This massive find is in federal territory. Hopefully, they’ll start drilling because it’s a tremendous find. But the White House has been dragging its heels when it comes to energy exploration.
