The United States’ dependence on foreign sources of energy puts the country’s national security at risk, as well as the economy. Producing our own energy allows it to be ‘green’ and ensures our national security.
I will work to reduce dependence on foreign sources of energy by reducing government red tape and taxes on domestic and alternative energy exploration, development, manufacturing and production.
- I will work towards developing a “Manhattan Project” style program that would work towards getting the US off foreign energy as quickly as possible.
- I will support companies spending less money on lobbyists and more on engineers.
- I will work to reduce regulations that impact utilizing local resources.
- I support all forms of energy production. I think eliminating our foriegn energy dependence will require advances in multiple energy souces such as windmills and nuclear energy production.
