Alaska? Dakotas? Not productive? Apparently we do live in alternate realities. Those 3 states alone are a lot of the reason why our gas is hovering around $2 a gallon for the last few years and our energy costs have been stable as of late. But screw them…we are much better off importing our oil and natural gas and not giving them a voice in Washington.
Like I have said, if you have a better way…work to change it. Convince people. There is a way to amend the constitution. Make it happen.
