    As I sat listening to the debates yesterday the liberal talking points were adhered to by each and every single member of the dimocrat party. One of their main issues stated is that "The Republicans want to give tax loopholes" to big oil companies.. okay so supposing that is correct, what would the consequences be if such loopholes were closed?




    I know the answer. Do you?

    look almost ever co. receives some type of subsidiary advantage etc. via gov's ability to tax, provide rebates or not......if thats the game they want to play then ALL green energy subsidies need to stop too, but I suspect that won't float their boat. same for ethanol....

    Oil companies in the U.S. are set to have a record Q1, with earnings surging by 50% year-over-year at the world's biggest company, Exxon Mobile, according to the Wall Street Journal

    I am not a fan of big oil, but their profit margins are small and do not even compare to Apple's profit margin which liberals love.

    Again, if you want to win the Oil Endgame, listen to Amory Lovins.

    Additionally, we should stop subsidizing roads.
