"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
To her Wall Street owners: Hillary Clinton: “But if everybody's watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. so, you need both a public and a private position.” - Hillary Clinton: "I'm kind of far removed from the struggles of the Middle Class"
For doing nothing what percentage of every gallon of gas does the Govt take in ?
Because its ignorant to say we would take in more money if it was nationalized and the FED took on the massive extra cost of everything from research, to drilling to distrubition, to process to exploration, etc.
Did you vote for Obama ?
Im trying to understand how someone could make such a glaring error in reason. To NOT take into account the massive expenditures of running a nationalized oil company OR the arbitrary assumption that the Govt would have more money if it nationalized its energy sector.
If your'e a Obama supporter that explains everything.
You seem to have a problem with understanding expenses and what a reduction is. did we spend more last year than the year before and so on? A smaller growth in the deficit than the previous year isn't a reduction in spending. Typical liberal talking points, the deficit is down which obviously means less spending? The U.S. Treasury Dept disagrees with you but then again you know better. Too bad we don't spend based upon what you claim.

Cuts in the deficit are irrelevant when govt. spending increases which it has every year under Obama.
