    I think it will be a significant benefit. This is an easy "yes."

Saudi Arabia and other OPEC members already fear that oil and gas from the US will damage their strangle hold. Notice the recent drops in Gas prices? Yep, more oil from Canada and the US reaching refineries and shipping ports is really going to "not help the US Economy" in the form of lower fuel costs, is it?

    Environmental damage? Lay off the crack pipe, will you. Oh wait, such ignorance is a natural state for socialist minded idiots, not one induced by drugs.

    Besides, even if/when it passes the Senate, it still has to go before the Red Black in the WH.
    What I do not understand is the fact we have at present 186,000 miles of liquid oil pipelines in the United States already. What the heck is another 2-3,000 miles gonna hurt when you already have 75 times or something close to that here already. I agree, it is much more dangerous to ship oil via truck and train than through a pipeline.

    Another thing, if we can somehow become energy independent with Canada's help, why not. It would reduce the chance of us getting into a war over a oil shipping lane or trying to protect a middle eastern country oil producing capability from whomever. We have a trillion dollar trade deficit and oil accounts for over half of that. We are helping other countries economy and giving them jobs when that money could be spent here along with the jobs. Then too, for every new job that means one less person on unemployment or what have you and that means less spending. It also means that taxes will be collected from the those jobs created and that increases revenues.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I think it will be much much more than that.

    They cannot "veto" anything. Only the President can veto anything. You are using the wrong word.

    How and where is this being done?

    Looks like the Keystone Pipeline is gonna get passed the Senate. A bad deal that is gonna hurt a lot of people, worsen the environment, and really not help the US economy at all is most likely gonna be passed. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Hurt whom?

    So tear up all those railroad tracks and the existing 186,000 miles of pipeline, and if you like we can take back the right of way for the Alaskan oil that runs through Canada.

    If your so opposed that is......

    Please explain how a pipeline located under the surface is a hazard to the aquifer located thousands of feet BELOW a limestone layer that the oil leaking on or near the surface cannot penetrate.
