The liberals want to deny oil companies the tax credits they have had for years, thereby weakening them in their efforts to compete internationally to provide us with the fuel we need to run our daily lives. Given that the government makes more money on a gallon of gas than Exxon does, and for no effort at all, will the government sacrifice its tax revenue, as well as denying the oil companies their revenue, in order to help citizens of the United States better afford the gas they need to get to work and conduct their personal business? Not likely. The government, which just soaks up money from everyone else's work, will never do with less. Additionally, we know that with Obama's illogical push for ethanol and wind power, that any money taken from the oil companies will be wasted on his pet alternative fuel projects and end up wasted and a total loss as a similar .
Which do we need more, the oil companies or the government? The oil companies' products allow us to drive to work; they allow us to drive to Colorado to enjoy the mountains; they allow us to drive to a favorite restaurant; they allow us to fly to California to see the ocean and to Florida to lay on the beach. All the government has done for us lately is limit our liberties, destroy our life savings, ruin the value of the dollar and destroy our nation's economy. I'll take Exxon!
Exxon can't force me to buy healthcare; Exxon can't force states to turn a blind eye to illegal aliens; Exxon can't raise my taxes because it foolishly overspent and over promised goodies to the nation; Exxon hasn't destroyed education in the United States like the Department of Education has; Exxon isn't trying to force unionization on the population of the nation; Exxon isn't trying to outlaw the use of the word God in private meetings and ceremonies; Exxon wouldn't even try to force gun dealers to sell weapons to known drug dealers; Exxon can't impose the trials of terrorists on cities as opposed to having those trials on military bases or at GITMO.
Liberals don't realize the danger in reinventing a healthcare system from the ground up, or changing the way we get the fuel to power our lives. Systems that have evolved over years and have proven themselves to be successful, especially when they involve something as important as healthcare and gasoline, can cause major disruptions and even a total collapse, when they are changed arbitrarily as the government has done with Obamacare and the president's hate for traditional sources of energy.
At a time of intense international competition for energy and with energy prices souring, the last thing we need is for our own government to discourage and even injure the industry that could provide energy independence for our nation and at lower fuel costs. Our own president and his democrat buddies are working with the intent to undermine our comfort, our prosperity and our national security with their idiotic push of alternative fuel sources and their efforts to hurt the oil industry.
