You Can Crack the Keystone Pipeline Stone Wall on Nov 4th

Vote to crack the wallBy Jeff Rutherford

Want to see more good jobs in America?  Me too.

Thousands of good paying productive jobs are being blocked for purely political reasons by the Democrat Party and its coalition of protesters and activists who have stonewalled completion of the Keystone XL pipeline project for over 6 years now.

2014 polls show that these stonewallers are outnumbered almost 3 to 1 across America by those of us who favor increased energy independence and good solid paychecks for America’s great construction workers:

“It’s striking to see an administration stonewalling an issue with so much popular support on the other side. A Washington Post-ABC News poll in March found that 65 percent favor building the pipeline, versus 22 who oppose. On how many other issues is the White House standing up against a three-to-one majority of opinion?

Nearly all types of people support building the pipeline. A few months ago, a Pew Research Center study divided the public into seven political categories — not just the usual liberal-conservative binary division. Pew found strong support for the pipeline in six of its seven categories, ranging from mostly conservative to mostly liberal.

For example, among a group labeled “next generation left,” that is, young people who are liberal in outlook but skeptical about whether government can accomplish much, there was 62 percent to 28 percent support of the pipeline.

Only the group labeled “solid liberals,” the most doctrinaire of those on the Left, opposed the pipeline, 57 percent 30 percent. Although they are passionate about their views, they are in a distinct minority; according to Pew, “solid liberals” make up just 17 percent of all registered voters.

So the Obama administration has solidly aligned itself with the 17 percent against the other 83 percent. Perhaps that’s a sustainable position for a president who won’t face voters again. It’s a tougher job for Democrats running for office in an already tough year.”

Stop the Pipeline ProtestersThe television cameras swarm to cover the protest rallies, showing large crowds of climate activists demonstrating against the Keystone XL pipeline project, which has been cleared of all rational and prudent hurdles years ago.  That’s “dramatic news.”  That is how these activists and the liberal media control the debate – by controlling what you see and hear.

But hold on.  Polling has proven that for every person in America that is against the pipeline, there are 3 people who are for it, and one person who is undecided or unaware that this absurd stone wall is limiting our choices for new jobs that would strengthen the working middle class.  Do the network television cameras ever show the many millions of quiet households of sensible people who support the pipeline?  No.  That’s not “newsworthy” because it doesn’t fit the left-leaning mass media’s agenda.

Next week, vote for job growth in America.  Vote against your stone-walling Democrat candidate from the Party of Control.  Vote to improve your choices for a good paying job by voting for your Republican candidate who has supported completion of the Keystone XL pipeline all along.
