Hey! Thought I’d send you this press release by Allen West on the OCS ban Congress refuses to lift:

Congressman Ron Klein is disappointed that President Bush has been “short-sighted” in lifting the executive ban on off-shore drilling. We are disappointed with Congressman Klein. With a complete lack of initiative or imagination, he continues to give us the Nancy Pelosi/far left talking-point response— the truly short-sighted policy. If we had not listened to every administration since Jimmy Carter, America could have been energy independent long ago.

And yes, if we develop our own natural resources—ALL of them— the speculators will see that events in the Middle East will have little effect on our supply, which will then be reflected in the price per barrel.

America must produce, consume, and even export its own energy resources as a crucial component of our national security. We cannot have an honest Middle East— or any— foreign policy if we are dependent upon hostile nations for our energy resources.

American families are suffering from the results of policies supported by incompetent elected officials whose very policies created the problems they are now trying to solve.

Now, today, let us embark upon a grand endeavor: develop our oil, oil shale, natural gas, coal, nuclear, hydrogen, hydroelectric (gulf stream), wind, and solar resources— full spectrum. We can no longer accept the career-politician response that strangles the American economy. We must set free the indomitable American ingenuity and spirit in order to create the conditions for our energy independence, increased jobs, economic revival, and the future of our republic.

Mr. Klein, step aside, and as the US Army Infantry motto states, “Follow Me”.

Lieutenant Colonel Allen B West (US Army, Ret)
Candidate, Florida US Congressional District 22
