1.3 Million Americans Sign Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less, Oil Petition
UPDATE: New total is 1,330,000!*
Here is Newt Gingrich's email message:
I have some exciting news to share with you. Because of your hard work and support we reached one million signatures on the "Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less" petition.
Your voice and the voice of one million Americans is truly making a difference in shaping the national debate.
Just this week, President George Bush, Senator John McCain, and Florida Governor Charlie Crist all called for lifting the federal ban on offshore drilling. And U.S. Representative Lynn Westmoreland has started a pledge in the U.S. House in support of American oil production that has been signed by 126 members of Congress.
Now, we need your help to reach our next goal: 3 million signatures by the Democratic and Republican national conventions this fall. I hope you will go online today and make a special contribution of $10 or more to receive your own "Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less" bumper sticker to help us grow the movement.
I also hope you'll forward this message to 5 friends and encourage them to sign the petition.Thank you for supporting this movement of one million Americans demanding real solutions to our energy challenges.
If you have not signed the petition, go to their web page DRILL HERE. DRILL NOW. PAY LESS. and look into what they are proposing. Their site also has the latest oil related articles and news.
*Thank you reader, who caught my billion error! Guess I am over anxious to hit the goal? :)
