And the winner in this fight is ----------- John McCain!!!!!!!!!!!!
You know, I don't claim to be the smartest man in the world or anything but I'm no fool either. This cartoon makes me wonder a couple of things. The first one is wouldn't the most logical agenda of someone attempting to TRULY do what's best for the largest number of American citizens be based on how to bring down the price of gasoline and diesel and bring it down in a hurry? I can't think of any issue that directly affects a larger percent of the population. Our entire economy is tied to it. Our amount of expendable income for things such as health care and retirement are dependent upon what we have left after spending the money we need to spend in order to buy gas and food at an inflated cost. You have to get to work in order to have any money to do anything with and you have to eat. Yet I have not heard any mention of any plan to directly affect the price of gasoline or diesel. Any mention of either of these fuels is always tied to alternative fuels for the future. This is a fools argument as an increase in alternative fuels only causes an increase in feed for livestock of all sorts. This then results in a higher cost of beef, chicken, pork, milk, eggs, etc.... Not to mention that ethanol is not cheaper than gasoline anyway when you factor in the reality that ethanol reduces your miles per gallon. The TRUE issue here is unbridled greed. The other thing that I wonder is how much money it actually takes to build a refinery and just how many refineries the money spent on this campaign would have purchased. The TRUE issue here is unbridled power and control. When will we have the guts to tell our politicians ENOUGH? Let's remember who is suppose to be working for whom!!!
