Obama Wins – Americans Lose

national suicideWe pause on this day after the re-election of Barack H. Obama to grieve the national suicide of the United States of America, because that’s what happened yesterday. MDN believes it’s hard to overstate how profoundly another four years of an Obama administration—and an out-of-control EPA—will negatively impact the U.S. energy industry. Look for more irrational hatred of fossil fuels, and the emboldening of radical leftists to try and end all drilling for natural gas and oil in this country. Look for more Solyndras and other failed so-called green tech companies (nothing more than political graft). Look for the miracle of hydraulic fracturing to be in the crosshairs of the Obama EPA. Look for the oil and gas industry to be compared to, denigrated and targeted like the tobacco industry. Frankly, it’s a nightmare we won’t wake up from.

So “thank you” to the 50.5% of my fellow citizens who have created this national nightmare. You’ll so richly get what you deserve—the rapid erosion of your freedom, higher taxes, higher fuel prices, fewer choices, and despair. MDN will be here every step of the way to remind you of what you have done—that is, until the Obama censors finally rip up the First Amendment and shut us down.

  • Sucks to live in a Democracy, huh?

  • It’s what comes after the democracy that I’m concerned about.

  • Three quotes from one of my all-time favorites, Benjamin Franklin:

    “When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”

    “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither safety nor liberty.”

    “This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins.”

  • Instead of looking forward for a well pad
    on my property I am now going to construct an underground concrete bunker, stock
    it with a two year supply of canned goods, shotguns and my AR-15 along with
    several thousand rounds of ammunition. Not for myself I am older and less
    concerned for myself as I am for my grand children. No I don’t believe the
    world is coming to an end, just the American way of life and the very freedoms
    we enjoyed as youth growing up. As people are hit by the next recession and it
    will be a big long lasting one, neighbors will turn on neighbors and like in
    other countries the USA is about to fall into civil

  • And they call us Chicken Littles! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria! Get over yourself Vic!!! You’ll still get your well someday, but your family and neighbors just might be protected from the harm gas wells are doing today. A little bit of regulation never hurt anybody.

  • And here I thought Obama supported fracking… wow… can’t imagine what would have been said if he opposed it!

  • Obama is very much in favor of gas drilling. Why such a hissy fit?

  • Let’s check back in in about 2 years and see if you still hold the same opinion.

  • I hope I’m wrong Michael. Sincerely.

    I don’t like Obama, but as a WV landowner getting crushed by out of control drilling I’ll take the good with the bad.
