Time to change directions

January 17, 2014 

Reference two articles in the BND Jan. 8: "Senator calls for crude export," and "BP pushes to stop payments in spill settlement," by Sean Cockerham of the McClatchy Washington Bureau.

The following paragraph, "Easing this ban might be a win for big oil but it would hurt American consumers."

There is time for change and that can be accomplished if voters vote in elections 2014 and 2016 to rid these ultra-liberal, anti-Constitution and pro-United Nations politicians, and, this also includes Big Oil CEOs and other big business CEOs who are more concerned with their wealth and power than they are with the welfare of the citizens of the United States and the U.S. itself: the Constitution.
