we have oil

We need oil. We use oil. We have oil.

I’ve been thinking and reading a lot about the debate over drilling for oil. And I’ve just whittled all the oil drilling arguments down to 9 words. The above 9 words are the reason the United States should drill more for domestic oil. It’s all that simple.

You can argue all you want about the individual parts of the above 9 words. Sure, we should reduce our “need” for oil. Sure, we could reduce our “use” of oil. Sure, we can disagree on how much oil we “have”. But no argument disputes the accuracy of the above 9 words.

Let’s drill more of our own oil, stop depending so much on other countries and just take care of ourselves for a change.
