Note:  Every effort is being made to force the passage of the Keystone pipeline.  This bill WILL NOT give the US any form of energy independence as all crude is slated to be shipped out of the country and into the global market.  Upon completion, it will provide only 35-42 permanent jobs.  This is a steep price to pay for land devastation, water contamination, spills, leaks and the dumping of toxic waste materials in Wisconsin and Minnesota.  This pipeline will also violate private property rights.

As all of this oil is slated for shipment out of the country, it would have been more cost efficient for Keystone to run a line west through Canadian states to its west coast.  But guess what!  Canadians aren’t having it!  Thats why Keystone is trying to invade the US and cause catastrophic damage here.

By the way:  Even with the horrendous history of just the last four months involving spills, leaks, water contamination etc., listed in the article below……Keystone will NOT be liable for any spills, cleanup or damage to land and water here in the US. 

And you can thank Republican’s for this fiasco!
