If we had the power to start changing our economy wouldn't we do it? If we could help more people be able to keep their homes and feed their families could we really say no? By denying the proposal of a pipeline to Canada, people are saying that they deny our country a chance to start recovering from the economic recession.
The pipeline proposal could create numerous new jobs. This would mean that more people would be able to keep their houses. More people could start to get out of debt and more money could be poured into our economy.
Not to allow this proposal is simply irresponsible. Not only would it help our economy by creating more jobs, but it could also lower the cost of gasoline. That would help millions of Americans to have more money to pay for bills.
This pipeline would produce over 700,000 barrels of Canadian oil a day. That amount could greatly reduce our dependency on foreign oils and could help to lower the cost of gasoline. Add that to the fact that it would create a great deal of new jobs, the project should be a no-brainer.
David Cameron said on the issue of our dependency, 'On the one hand we have got to ask, are there some areas of universal benefits that are no longer affordable? But on the other hand let us look at the issue of dependency where we have trapped people in poverty through the extent of welfare that they have.'
Right now many of Americans are trapped in poverty. Many are out of work or are making much less than they would normally. With the creation of this pipeline we can start to change this. We owe it to our friends and neighbors to give them the opportunity to start coming out of this recession.
Our economy has been in a recession for years. It has been reported as the worst that our country has seen since the Great Depression. Right now we are being given a chance to start changing that. If we chose to deny this proposal, then we have no one to blame for the continuation of this recession but ourselves.
Change is possible. There are alternative fuel sources that need to be studied and explore. Creating jobs in America should be a priority for every industry, but most importantly for how we fuel this country.
