Energy Independence

Jul 20, 2022    Congressman Tracey Mann

Although this topic is a bit off the radar, it is essential.

Three big issues:

debt; China; and moral values. 

There are many issues we can discuss but energy independence is massive because we cannot be free as a nation if we rely on other nations for our energy.

Our rights do not come from the government but are inherent because we are created by God. That is our essential basic principle.

Energy independence requires that we produce more energy than we use.

We can still import, but we need to still do the above.

President Donald Trump created energy independence in the nation.

To re-establish energy independence, President Biden must reopen the Keystone. This is factually true, yet he closed it to satisfy radical environmental groups who push the fake environmental “Green New Deal” agenda.

Our closure of the Keystone made us dependent on Russia and increased Russian energy. This is un-american and makes no sense - unless we truly want to destroy our nation and help Russia.

President Biden is punishing the oil and gas industry not only with environmental policy, but with tax policy. This is not ignorant, but intentional and un-american.

There are two types of energy: (1) fossil; and (2) renewable. We should promote all the above and energy independence, rather than go back to reliance on foreign oil.

We need not choose between fossil v. renewable. We can do both and it will bless and protect our nation.  Our National Security hangs in the balance.

Lord, bless this great Congressman!
