Oil monopoly

The only 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.

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.

It is time that the American people sue the Democratic Party for creating an energy monopoly in this country.

You make a good point, and I can understand what you're talking about. However, I admit that I am biased towards clean/renewable energy sources. Of course I want to wean off dependence on Middle Eastern oil - I just would rather have complete independence from using oil as an energy source in general, and see more investment going towards alternative energy sources.

I do agree with you that politicians create market distortions, but I would rather see politicians (since they will always exist) favor clean energy than oil. Incentives from them can stimulate innovation and drive the price of clean energy low enough to be competitive...perhaps I am an idealist...

I agree with twoffs. You have good points, but my interest is in energy independence through the development of renewable energy sources.

Thanks for sharing your perspective on this. It's very informative.
