Friends, we need to be proactive in our fight against Congress’ bureaucracy. A step in the right direction is for you to sign the American Solutions’ “Drill Here. Drill Now. Pay Less” petition. Let me urge you to sign this petition and then send it along to others. The only way to communicate a message that something needs to change is to get Americans to act corporately. As of this morning, 1,314,995 people have signed this petition, but this is not enough to get most of these derelict Congressmen to do something. To sign the petition, click here (BTW, on the same page, you can go to a designated link to see if your Congressmen support this petition).
