    Default I have far more optimism...

    ...than Paul, Franco, and others about changing this regime. Of course we will have to become far more diligent in holding our Congresscritters feet to the fire. That's exactly what the Tea Partys across America are resolved to do.

    But we will NEVER get back to being able to put America on firm footing with the current oligarchy in charge. Do any of you believe we can even begin to change the EPA?...the DOE???...and a variety of bureaucratic entities, when the President is running the nation with a batch of czars, while thumbing his nose at the Constitution?

    I'll be the first to admit that the "establishment" Republicans are far from what this nation needs for a total reform, but it is far more superior than what passes for the Democrat party's direction for the nation, under this failed leadership.

    Just in the one area of becoming energy independant, anyone above moronic intelligence can see the present "green energy" program under this regime is a total failure. And how far do you think the fraking technology will be allowed to grow under this crowd of losers?

    Here's a story that will be just the beginning, should we get the right administration in office, and keep promoting this industry. I have no doubt that a Romney administration, along with a conservative Congress, will get this nation's economy running at full speed in short order.

    Thanks Fracking: World’s Largest Manufacturer Of Construction Equipment Looking To Switch To Natural Gas

    Thanks to hydraulic fracturing and other innovations in the oil and gas industry we have opened up entire oceans of new energy reserves which can be tapped into. In the gas industry, specifically, that has meant dramatically lower costs for natural gas which, among other things, has meant lower costs for consumers on things like utility bills.

    Natural gas is also replacing coal as a cheaper source of electricity, which in turn is reducing carbon emissions.
    But the impact of lower gas prices is going even further. Caterpillar, the world’s largest manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, is going “all in” on manufacturing equipment that runs on natural gas.

    HOUSTON, OCT. 3, 2012 — /PRNewswire/
    — Caterpillar Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, industrial gas turbines and diesel-electric locomotives, announced at the inaugural Natural Gas for High Horsepower Applications (HHP) Summit on Sept. 27 its intentions to go ‘all-in’ on natural gas and produce even more natural gas-fueled equipment and engines for a variety of applications.

    Joel Feucht, Caterpillar’s director of gas engine strategy for the energy and power systems businesses, made the announcement during his keynote address at HHP Summit 2012, a first-of-its-kind event that examined the economic and environmental benefits of using the clean-burning, domestically abundant natural gas in fuel-hungry high horsepower applications.

    “We have decided to go all-in on gas,” declared Feucht during his keynote address at HHP Summit on Sept. 27. “We are going to invest because we see a global market long term. Large engines are going gas. It’s not debatable; it’s our conclusion.”
    A shift to cheaper natural gas for construction equipment and, perhaps, even applications like truckers would substantially bring down the cost of doing business. Most of what you buy in the stores is delivered on a truck. Lower fuel prices means lower delivery prices means cheaper products. Or, at least, product prices that don’t go up as quickly.

    It would also have implications for the petroleum fuel markets. Less demand for diesel might bring down diesel prices, and there may be an impact for gasoline prices too.

    Whatever the impacts, they’re going to be positive. The natural gas boom is allowing industry in America to cut prices by moving to cheaper fuels. That’s going to be good for our economy.

    Thanks to hydraulic fracturing earth quakes have increased tremendously in the DFW area.

    Those tremors you feel are the people with mineral rights running to the bank with their royalty checks... What happened, you got left out?

    This is your 'scientific' finding????...or what you WANT to believe????...or are you just parroting what some of the ignorants want you to repeat? Before falling on THAT sword, or drowning in THAT vat of koolaid, please talk with someone having a clue about what has been the cause of earthquakes for centuries, rather than some fools spewing garbage with no knowledge OR proof.

    T Boone Pickens has been championing conversion to natural gas longer than any other influential American.

    However, I am not convinced that this is a top priority of what is left of the Tea Party.
    It's time we abandon our party affiliations and rather than being good Dems or good Repubs we all become good Americans. MJH345

    Pam - I'm a graduate mining engineer & have worked up to 8,000 feet underground - I find what some would like to believe just a little mind boggling - but I will give you this - when any material is displaced from it's solid state it will expand 1.7 times all other conditions being similar - the displacement caused by fracking does not reach that level -

    When Yellowstone had the big quake in 1959 - the mines in Butte, though only 90 miles away, did not suffer any damage.

    I call BS on the quakes caused by fracking.
