10. Once again, the emphasis is on oil production over all other kinds of energy production

"Burdensome to economic growth" is their universal excuse for everything bad this administration does. Never "improve the quality of life for all Americans" or "preserve for future generations." U.S. resources serve only one purpose, and that is to make rich people richer. Anything that reduces profits is bad. The "free market" means there are no restrictions on how you make a profit.

Profit in and of itself is not a bad thing--that's how capitalism works--but achieving it at all costs is, IMO.

For example, that's the big difference between how the Dems and Repukes view the military. The Dems see using the military as defending our country and those of our allies; the GOPers view the military's primary as to "protect American interests" (which they define as corporate assets) overseas. Bush used to use this term a lot when he was lauding our military.
