A Project of Texans for Natural Gas

Frack Feed

Kittens do strange things, but there’s nothing strange about American energy security made possible by fracking. Here’s what the “top 10” Republican candidates for President have said about that.

“Republicans care just as deeply about the environment as Democrats but we also care about jobs. We want common sense regulations to be balanced with economic growth and jobs… So while California languishes, economies in states like North Dakota and Texas are booming.”
-Rand Paul-


“Fracking will lead to American energy independence. With the price of natural gas continuing to drop, we can be at a tremendous advantage.”
-Donald Trump-


“We should be celebrating this phenomenal achievement –- and we do, in North Dakota, in Pennsylvania, in south and west Texas. Some states, like here in New York, are choosing not to grow. They won’t approve fracking, meanwhile, in parts of New York where huge opportunities exist for the restoration of economic activity, people languish.”
-Jeb Bush-

“Thanks to the gods and the glaciers, we have some of the best frack sands in the world. In many of our rural parts they’ve been a tremendous economic boom creating jobs and opportunities that many haven’t seen in parts of the state of Wisconsin. From the West to the Northwest we want to continue to do that going forward.”
-Scott Walker-


“Hydraulic fracturing is so new, innovative and changing, it’s time we shift power back to state and local governments on natural gas and depoliticize this issue. The EPA has done enough damage and shouldn’t meddle in this arena.”
-Mike Huckabee-

“And all the natural gas we have! Now we have the ability to liquefy natural has, which means we can export it.”
-Ben Carson-


“Will we lead the world into a new generation of American prosperity led by the great American energy renaissance we’re experiencing, or will we instead shut off our borders, erect walls, and allow our friends and allies to be dependent on tyrants like Vladimir Putin or Nicolás Maduro?”
-Ted Cruz-


“I support a comprehensive energy plan that encourages nuclear energy, exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and environmentally safe leasing of oil and natural gas fields in the outer continental shelf and on federally owned lands with oil shale in the West. As senator, I will stand for policies that make us more energy efficient, less reliant on foreign sources of oil, create jobs and ease the burden on family budgets.”
-Marco Rubio-


“[G]et regulation off people’s backs… (making North America) a bigger and more powerful energy producer than OPEC.”
-Chris Christie-


In reference to the natural gas industry, “I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but they think there is really an opportunity for adjacent industries. It shouldn’t just be this, it should be lots of other things.”
-John Kasich-
