Can someone at Redstate please tell the McCain campaign to tie energy independence to jobs and yes even union jobs and yes high paying jobs that cannot be outsourced.
Energy independence activity in the US mainly clean coal, natural gas, oil and nuclear energy is the solution to almost all problems facing the US today.
1) Energy Independence (obviously) reducing energy prices, means2) Economic growth3) Jobs4) Inceased tax receipts reduces the deficit5) Stock market goes up6) National Security
As importantly you can call Obama/Biden and the Dems on their opposition to domestic energy production and then tie the fact that this opposition to all the above points.
I make this diary post as I have just listened to McCain and Palin talk about energy independence without making the tie in to all the other points.
