NozzleRage: America's Humorous Antidote to Fuming at the Gas Pump

Every American is getting hosed. Each time we fill up our gas tanks, we are putting money into the hands of OPEC - the oil cartel led by Saudi Arabia. The Saudis and the other countries that make up that monopoly control most of the world's reserves. Most of them pay just a couple of dollars per barrel to get oil out of the ground.

Yet, OPEC is limiting production and encouraging speculation that is costing us and other consumers hundreds of billions of dollars every year. It amounts to the largest artificially engineered transfer of wealth in history. OPEC is waging economic warfare, and it is bleeding our country dry.

Worse still, some of the oil money the Saudis, Iranians, Venezuelans and other OPEC members get from us is being used to support terrorism. We are literally paying people to try to kill us.

This is clearly a ridiculous and unsustainable situation. If not corrected, we are going to bleed out as we underwrite our destruction.

NozzleRage is a video campaign designed, through viral YouTube and Internet distribution, to make clear what is happening to this country and its drivers. Its goal is to channel the fury most Americans feel into effective action. Go Here Now to watch the video on YouTube.

The first of a series of 30-second NozzleRage videos features an OPEC gas pump ripping off and then attacking an ordinary American consumer. Conceived, directed and produced by the fabled Hollywood team of David and Jerry Zucker, it directs viewers to the Web site where they can register to view upcoming videos and find out what they can do to end our suicidal vulnerability to OPEC's oil cartel.

NozzleRage's message is supported by a number of the nation's leading advocates for energy security including Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. (of the Center for Security Policy), who is available for interviews now. Go Here Now to see Frank Gaffney on Fox Business Network. And on FNC...
