62. The only way the American people win is when they do the "picking."
Corporations with well connected lobbyists win when the government chooses for them.

You are wrong to suggest that petroleum dominates the energy industry. Is the most efficient source of portable energy, but it's only used to generate about 3% of our electricity. The reason it is the "Mother of all Commodities" relates to the fact it is used to manufacture of a wide variety of materials.

The most efficient energy source for the future could very well be anti matter, which is 100% efficient. Unfortunately, it's extremely costly to create and very hard to store. However, I have no doubt that if our scientists are free to research and create, they will figure it, or something else out.

What we don't need is a corrupt government "correcting our behavior" through the implementation of policies based on input from K street.
