Before you start throwing the blame on the government. Ask yourself where are the American people who use to would tell Washington to but out of their business and go full steam ahead. We have become a country of slaves thinking that Washington even has the power to stop us from protecting our own country. What is Washington going to do if the oil companies decided to drill for oil which belongs to all Americans anywhere oil or natural gas is found. Are they going to send the US military to stop them? As far as the courts are concerned the federal government bypasses our law when ever they do not agree with Washington`s goals. So why should we the people honor the laws put forth by our self serving government ;crooks]? Drill baby drill you!
