That the ELECTED might never form to themselves an interest
    separate from the ELECTORS, prudence will point out the
    propriety of having elections often.

Keystone Fraud

In the midst of all the Republican “drill, baby, drill” and incessant whining about how the Tar Sands Pipeline will give us magical $2 gas, why are ConocoPhillips and Sunoco closing three refineries?

Keystone Fraud

In the midst of all the Republican “drill, baby, drill” and incessant whining about how the Tar Sands Pipeline will give us magical $2 gas, why are ConocoPhillips and Sunoco closing three refineries?

TransCanada has claimed that Keystone XL will
be the “safest pipeline in the U.S.” However, since
the initial Keystone 1 pipeline began operation in
June 2010, at least 35 spills have occurred in the
U.S. and Canada. In its first year, the U.S. section
of Keystone 1 had a spill frequency 100 times
greater than TransCanada forecast. In June 2011,
federal pipeline safety regulators determined
Keystone 1 was a hazard to public safety and
issued TransCanada a Corrective Action Order.
