    You want the government to have the tax dollars it needs to operate? Want to see the deficite go away? Fewer private sector profits means fewer tax dollars.
    What are you talking about? For the last decade, corporate taxes have been the lowest they have been in modern history! How did that work out for us?

    You tell us.

    I hope this isn't one of those, "low taxes caused the depression", rants.

    Back to the peak oil myth for a second. Crude oil production in the GOM is down 13%. Is that because of peak oil, or because of Obama's drilling ban?

    Oh right, right, because no Democrat has corporate ties who would benefit from global warming legislation...

    The unfunded wars along with the tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans did in fact cause our National debt to climb to historic levels. That is a fact.

    You need to read up on the production bell curve of oil wells. You do know that oil is a finite, non-renewable source of energy do you not?

    If I get to choose, then I would like a platform of conservatism for our resources, honoring the property rights of other countries as we honor our own. What do ya think?

    Ah, here we go. Are you claiming that everyone that owns a corporation is wealthy? You've been listening to the Messiah, too much. Him, or Keither Olberman.

    You need to read up on the production bell curve of oil wells. You do know that oil is a finite, non-renewable source of energy do you not?
    Really? So, how did all that oil get there, to begin with?

    You might wanna read up on the subject
