Stand Up to Big Oil

Stand Up to Big Oil

      Organizing for Action

The big oil companies have a three-part strategy: gouge Americans at the pumps to make as much money as possible right now; hire lobbyists and donate millions to politicians to secure giveaways of taxpayer dollars to inflate profits even more; and stifle clean energy innovation to perpetuate our addiction to oil and keep it all going as long as possible.

For them, this election is a simple business calculation -- Mitt Romney has their back and will maintain the status quo. 

These companies have a lot at stake and are willing to spend big and even lie in order to maintain their privileged position. That's what their new ad campaign is about.

While the President pursues an all-of-the-above energy strategy and tries to put an end to taxpayer giveaways to oil companies, they're using their record-breaking profits to attack him with negative ads.

I don’t want my tax dollars subsidizing oil companies and I’m standing up to say so. I’m adding my name to show that I’ve got President Obama’s back.

      I do not have any regard for President Obama's stand on this because he and his family are GUILTY of abusing their power by hiring 2 jets to take his daughter and friends on a vacation to Mexico. Thousands of gallons of fuel, tons of security to protect the birthday party all on our tax dollars. Also he is keeping us dependent on foreign countries (especially middle east, whom we are a war) I DO NOT SUPPORT HIS EFFORTS? He is destroying this country. And doesn't give a damn. A good leader would lead by example. Otherwise he's a hypocrite. I signed so I could give my thoughts on this....You can withdrawn my signature, but not my post of which will most like not be seen.

      Speculators are the biggest reason for the spike in gasoline prices.That takes us back to Wall Street and their old tricks.
