The Democrats want to own the oil industry?

Yep. I guess this comes to no surprise to anyone that is anti-socialist, but the Democrats want the government to control the oil industry. — World Net Daily just reported that Democrat representative Maurice Hinchey said,

We (the government) should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market.

Yep, let’s follow Hugo Chavez and nationalize oil. More government control? More bureaucracy? Let’s make a corrupt government more powerful. Anyone?— The government does not constitutionally have the power to do such a thing, nor should it. And apparently, many Americans don’t believe it should either.

A Rasmussen Poll that came out on the 16th of this month shows that 47% of us, the American people, are against it while only 29% are for nationalizing oil. The rest are undecided.

The Rasmussen Report also mentions,

Nationalization is the process by which the government assumes complete control of a private industry and its assets. It has been a common practice in totalitarian dictatorships.

Well, being private businesses, the government should have no say in these companies. — As a matter of fact, as far as the oil companies and government are concerned, they should both pretend that the other doesn’t exist. Collaboration between the two has been known to lead to twisted deals so that is the best way to deal with oil, besides lifting restrictions on drilling.  — And guess what! 67% of Americans are for more offshore drilling, and 64% say it will lower prices. The Democrats are against it.

I’m just going to say, besides not fixing the problem, nationalization would mean the government overstepping its bounds constitutionally because, let’s face it, the U.S. government doesn’t have that power.

The only energy or oil monopoly in this country is a governmental institutionalized monopoly on our country energy market. The legislative branch has been engaging in anti-competitive energy practices from drilling to building new refineries and much more. They are in clear violation of the

“Sherman Antitrust Act
This Act expresses our national commitment to a free market economy in which competition free from private and governmental restraints leads to the best results for consumers.” http://www.usdoj.gov/atr/contact/newcase.htm#file

Clearly the governmental restraint are in violation of a free market economy and is criminal negligence on the part of the liberal politicians who are the real cartel that profit in taxes more then 3 to 1 to the oil companies that actually work for their money and then have to pay taxes on top of that. So when Oil profits go up the tax revenue increase is 3 times that of the oil companies. So who do you think is the real cartel???

This criminal incompetence of the democrats and legislative politicians anti free market energy economy in allowing American companies to meet American Oil needs is in need of change and with bush opening up offshore drilling it is time that we conservatives take a page from the left wing play book and for us to us the judicial system in upholding our laws and open up drilling.

Why dose the Senate call for investigations on big oil? Because they are trying to transfer the blame off of them by placing the blame on someone else. By placing the blame on the oil companies and keep people from seeing that government is the true problem they are able to offer false hope in an effort to gain more power and money from taxes while eliminating a free market economy in our country and forcing us to send our money to unfriendly Middle Eastern countries.

Why should we drill?
1) Create more high paying jobs for Americans
2) Become energy independent and stop sending $700 billion to middle eastern countries that support terrorism
3) Invest the $700 billion in America
4) $700 billion is 6% of the yearly US economy, and investing this in America would do what to our economy? Lower inflation and strengthen the US dollar?
5) Instantly drop the price of oil because oil Speculators like me would invest in commodity producers that provide the product like Exxon, Chevron, BP, Shell, because this is the smart investment. When Oil Speculators transfer investments the Oil price falls on the stock market.
