THE PEOPLE SPEAK – Wallace will protect our water resources

Vote for Wallace to protect our water. All the people in Oklahoma who know anything about water issues support Rob Wallace for Congress.

T. Boone Pickens already owns a lot of the water of Texas and he is after our water now. The ancient Ogalalla aquifer probably will become contaminated because of the Tar Sands Bitumen pipeline ruining over it. T. Boone has grandiose ideas of piping the water in from the Great Lakes to the aquifer if needed as we are rapidly draining the water.

There is no end to what can and will be done for money. We need some one in Congress capable of persuasive debate to protect our interests. Crying “No” to everything is not what we need. We need ideas based on what citizens need not what the very rich and powerful want.
