    some people think that all wealth is rightfully the property of the state and any thing that keeps the government from getting all wealth is a right wing plot

    So are they taxed in every country for all money made or just that that was made in that country. Does the US tax exxon for money made in UK?

    Thats crap. Show proof. I think the little they get in subsidies compared to their profit is laughable to fight about. It shows the greed of big business and gives oil companies a bad name. Shows me they are over charging some where. The problem is much of their money comes from other areas besides oil and gas so the subsidies are nothing more than walking around money for them

    Make less profit, What will it be 3% maybe 5% less profit? You fail to back up the double tax accusation.
