Vote this administration out

EDITOR:

This is a rebut to an article put in the paper a month or so ago about, no oil in the U.S.

Well here is an update and the URL's so you can look it up for yourself.

Cruz Construction started a division in North Dakota 6 months ago or so. They sent every Kenworth (9 trucks) they had in Alaska to North Dakota and several drivers.

They just bought two new Kenworths to add to that fleet; one being a Tri-Drive tractor and a new 65-ton lowboy to go with it. They also bought two new cranes (one crawler & one rubber tired) for that division.

Dave Cruz said they have moved more rigs in the last 6 months in N.D. than Cruz Construction moved in Alaska in the last 6 years. Williston is like a gold rush town; they moved one of our 40 man camps down there since there are no rooms available. Unemployment in N.D. is the lowest in the nation at 3.4 percent, last I checked. See anything in the national news about how the oil industry is fueling North Dakota 's economy?

Here's an astonishing read. Important and verifiable information: About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program, on oil and one of the Forbes Bros. was the guest.

The host said to Forbes, "I am going to ask you a direct question and I would like a direct answer; how much oil does the U.S. have in the ground?" Forbes did not miss a beat, he said, "More than all the Middle East put together."

The U.S. Geological Service issued a report in April 2008 that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man, was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since 1995) on how much oil was in this area of the western two-thirds of North Dakota, western South Dakota, and extreme eastern Montana.

Check this out: The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska's Prudhoe Bay, and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil.

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10 percent of the oil is recoverable (5 billion barrels), at $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.

"When legislators were first briefed on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea," says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature's financial analyst. "This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years," reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

It's a formation known as the Williston Basin, but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.' It stretches from northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada. For years, U. S. oil exploration has been considered a dead end. Even the Big Oil companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago.

However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken's massive reserves, and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels. And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 a barrel. We are now paying $92 a barrel. That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years straight.

And if that didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should, because it's from 2006. U. S. Oil Discovery, Largest Reserve in the World (Stansberry Report Online, 4/20/2006). Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world. It is more than 2 trillion barrels. On Aug. 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction. In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted. With this mother load of oil why are we still fighting over offshore drilling?

They reported this stunning news: We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth. Here are the official estimates: 8 times as much oil as Saudi Arabia, 18 times as much oil as Iraq, 21 times as much oil as Kuwait, 22 times as much oil as Iran, 500 times as much oil as Yemen. And it's all right here in the western United States. How can this be? How can we not be extracting this?

Because the environmentalists and this administration have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil. Again, we are letting a small group of people dictate our lives and our economy. Why? James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East, more than 2 trillion barrels untapped. That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post.

Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price even with this find? Think again. It's all about the competitive marketplace, it has to. I think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists? Got your attention yet? Now, while you're thinking about this, let others know.

If you don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the next time you complain about gas prices. By doing nothing, you forfeit your right to complain. We need to vote this administration out.

Remember, being union doesn't mean you have to vote Democrat just because they tell you to, in fact the unions have been losing their strength, with Democrat support over the last 30 years. By the way, this can be verified. Check it out at the link below at www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=1911, www.cruzconstruct.com/services..php.
