Fracking Ends Historic Campaign

Fracking ended her historic campaign this afternoon, after exit polling revealed that she did not have a realistic path to the presidency. The campaign began in August, providing an option for millions of Americans who were unhappy with the other candidates.

In marking the conclusion of her campaign, Fracking released the following statement:

First of all, I want to say thank you. Thank you to my supporters, who believe in energy security, high-paying jobs, and a cleaner environment. A future where America depends less on imported oil, and where hardworking men and women are able to provide and care for their families.

I would also like to say thank you to my running mate, American Manufacturing, who is the backbone of this great country. Together, we have created millions of jobs and helped reduce our trade deficit, proving that investing in America is the future, not the past.

While we came up a little short in achieving our goal, we have created a movement that cannot be ignored. We are nearly 15 million Americans strong, and as our work continues, we will grow stronger as a force for positive change.

We live in a tumultuous time, and the forces that divide us often appear to be greater than what can bring us together. But I refuse to believe that. We must remember what makes this country great: innovation, hard work, and a fierce independence that will not, and cannot, be taken from us. These are what enabled America’s shale energy renaissance, and they are what will continue to make America the great beacon of hope that it has been for generations.

No matter who wins this election, I look forward to working closely with them – as I have for the past eight years – to ensure our country remains a global energy superpower. We need to make sure that American families can keep more of their hard-earned money with lower heating and energy bills. We have proven that more domestic energy development means lower prices at the pump – contrary to what so many politicians told us – and have helped working families in the process. We have cut carbon emissions with abundant and clean-burning natural gas, progress that we can continue in the years ahead. While some have talked about addressing climate change, we actually did it.

One of the most important issues we face as a nation is keeping ourselves safe, and I have always believed that energy security is national security. After decades of dependence on OPEC, the United States of America is now the largest oil and natural gas producer in the world. Our use of imports as a share of our total domestic oil consumption fell from 60 percent to 25 percent over the past ten years. Next year, the United States is projected to become a net natural gas exporter.

These are not Republican or Democratic achievements. They are American achievements. They have brought us together and helped deliver a brighter future for millions of families, even as the political rhetoric in our country has been harsh and divisive.

For the past decade, I have helped provide hope and optimism in an economy when neither was very abundant. We created jobs when other industries were struggling. We helped keep the lights on for workers who lost their jobs, and we made sure that filling up the family car was less painful for those on tight budgets.

I hope we can continue this progress, recognizing that what unites us is far more important than what divides us. Whoever wins this historic election, I look forward to helping the new administration deliver the kind of economic promise that all too often has been more rhetoric than reality.

We’ve done it before, and we can do it again.

Thank you all, and God bless America.
