Boycott Oil Companies that Drill in ANWR

OK, the oil companies own Congress, lock stock and barrel. After years of haggling and false starts, the Senate has authorized oil drilling in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge.

Republicans had to resort to their usual bedwetting cowardly tactic of inserting the oil drilling provision into a budget bill where it couldn’t be voted down on its own merits. They know there’s no public desire to rape America’s wilderness for that last drop of oil, so their only solution is to sneak and slither into the darkest corners where nobody can see what they’re doing.

Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Washington, has been one of the staunchest opponents of drilling in ANWR. She said “Using backdoor tactics to destroy America's last great wild frontier will not solve our nation's energy problems and will do nothing to lower skyrocketing gas prices.”

With few exceptions, Congress is basically the world’s most expensive whorehouse. About the only thing they’re good for is lying down and spreading their legs every time the oil industry comes a-courtin’ (and the banking industry, timber and mining interests, auto manufacturers, Halliburton…)

The oil companies own our government, but they don’t own you. Do they? Public opinion is overwhelmingly against drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. And now you have a chance to express this.

You can send this message to the oil companies. Tell them you will boycott any oil company that drills in the ANWR. The oil companies can bribe Congress but they can’t bribe the public.

This boycott will speak to them in the one language they understand. Please send them this message and make your voice heard. We The People have power, but only if we're willing to use it.

And thanks to The Bulldog Manifesto, Boycott Thieves, and BlogTemps for originally posting this.
