Congressman Paul Ryan says "drill".

I had the pleasure of volunteering yesterday at the Kenosha County Dairy breakfast.

It was a great event that was super organized and a lot of fun.

The event was held at the Lois Bros. farm way out in Wheatland, just a few blocks from the school.

Rep. Samantha Kerkman gave a great speech honoring the family that had been farming for 150 years.

Even though tornadoes ripped through that area in January, the Fox river swelling and engulfing their farms back in August of last year, and again swelling right now- the farmers are determined and hard working. Still they help get food on the table for Americans across this country.

Thank you Kenosha County Dairy Farmers!

I had a brief moment at the end of the event to sit down for a quick breakfast with Congressman Paul Ryan, his lovely wife and three children. The kids were super excited about seeing the animals and the congressman was just thrilled to be able to spend time with his wife and children. I got a kick out of the Congressman's middle son digging into some super hard ice cream that finally gave way, flipping ice cream across the bill of his baseball cap and across the table towards his older sister. He giggled and dug right back into that hard ice cream looking for a bite to put into his mouth.

Being the political addict that I am, I could not help but finally ask "Hey Congressman, what are you going to do about these gas prices?"

I already knew what my Congressman believed in, but it is always nice to hear.

He gave me a quick, simple one word answer- "Drill".

The Congressman is right, we need to drill.

If you are tired of high gas prices, we need to drill.

If you are tired of foreign terrorists countries taking our money and then trying to blow us up, we need to drill for our OWN oil.

If you are tired of our jobs going overseas, we need to give Americans high paying secure jobs by drilling right here in America.

If you do not want the Chinese and the Cubans drilling for oil a few miles off of our coastline and taking our share of oil, then drill for oil now!

Support high paying American jobs and drill for oil in America NOW!

Shoot you can even help Americans with jobs by building a few oil refineries all over America.

Sign the petition and join the cause- Drill Here. Drill Now. Pay Less.
