Statement from the Candidate
In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Obama: Repeal Oil Company Tax Credits
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.
