Â?Get Off Your gas.Â? Foreign produced oil that is. ItÂ?s a simple concept. So simple, in fact, that most politicians in Washington, D.C. just donÂ?t seem to get it. Maybe itÂ?s because theyÂ?re getting the story from the other side Â? from Big Oil and Big Automakers who give lip service to energy independence while greasing political palms with cool cash.

The 2004 election is over. But if you’re waiting for a major shakeup in the nation’s energy marketplace, don’t hold your breath.

Problem:

Too many politicians and Washington bureaucrats, for the most part are virtually dominated by well organized 'public-be-damned' special interest groups like big oil interests.

Solution:

The American public has the ultimate power if they use it, with visible signs of action as their rightful weapons to put pressure on politicians responsible for our energy policy.

The 2004 election is over.

But if you’re waiting for a major shakeup in the nation’s energy marketplace, don’t hold your breath.

The administration will likely expend more energy fighting a blood-for-oil war in Iraq than pushing for a meaningful alternative fuel usage in the USA.

The campaign to end the nation’s dependence on foreign oil is solidly in the hands of John and Jane Q. Public – with guidance and aid from the Foreign Oil Independence League (FOIL).

With patriotic citizens lending a hand, FOIL and its Web site, http://www.joinfoil.org will show the nation how to plug that crude oil spigot – and put control of our energy future back into American hands.

It’s a simple concept. So simple, in fact, that most politicians in Washington, D.C. just don’t seem to get it. Maybe it’s because they’re getting the story from the other side – from Big Oil and Big Automakers who give lip service to energy independence while greasing political palms with cool cash.

In other words, no lobbyist will be left behind in the energy bill now in front of Congress.

It’s time to fire the afterburners on the effort to foil the nation’s dependence on imported oil. With motorists paying $2 to $2.50 – or more – for a gallon of fuel, the scale of economy is swinging sharply toward the use of alternative fuels.

The http://www.joinfoil.org Web site is offering a simple 5” vinyl stick-on decal to help motorists trumpet the benefits of switching from a foreign oil-based system to one that thrives on products made in America.

FOIL is making available a colorful, all-American decal that motorists can stick on their fuel tank cap. That way, they’ll be pumping up the nation’s patriotism level, contributing to the country’s economic strength and supporting our armed forces while deflating the overblown overseas oil barons whose slimy economic engines need to die on the vine.

It’s the right and patriotic thing to do.

Buying fuel tank toppers at two for $10 at http://www.joinfoil.org is the way to put your message where your fuel tank is – and display your patriotism.

Are you – willing to wait 10 or 15 years for the nation moving at a snail’s pace to develop hydrogen-powered vehicles and solar-chugging runabouts when Ethanol can be made available here and now – and waiting to be used?

Does the idea of paying high gasoline prices for another decade just to placate greedy oil companies and do-nothing politicians enrage you? It should.

Put that rage to work. Before more Americans die for foreign oil, show your patriotism. Fight for oil independence. A good start is to order a "Get Off Your Gas" decal at http://www.joinfoil.org.
