Obama’s Anti-American, Anti-Capitalist, Anti-Growth, Anti-Jobs, and Anti-Security Energy Policy–Videos
“Now, legal plunder can be committed in an infinite number of ways. Thus we have an infinite number of plans for organizing it: tariffs, protection, benefits, subsidies, encouragements, progressive taxation, public schools, guaranteed jobs, guaranteed profits, minimum wages, a right to relief, a right to the tools of labor, free credit, and so on, and so on. All these plans as a whole—with their common aim of legal plunder—constitute socialism.”
“We have tried so many things; when shall we try the simplest of all: freedom.”

“…Crude oil, refining, distribution & marketing, and taxes are the four major cost components for estimates of the retail price of a gallon of gasoline:
- Crude oil – the major feedstock used to produce gasoline. This portion of the gasoline price is represented by the cost of crude oil purchased by refiners.
- Refining – processing the crude oil into gasoline. The refining portion of the gasoline price is the spread between the cost of crude oil purchased by refiners and the wholesale price of gasoline. This spread represents both the costs and profits associated with the refining process.
- Distribution & Marketing (Retail) – the part of the supply chain where wholesale gasoline is brought to a retail station and sold to the final consumer. This portion of the gasoline price is the retail price minus the other three price components. It represents both the costs and profits associated with selling retail gasoline to the final consumer.
- Taxes – The Federal Government levies a tax of 18.4 cents on each gallon of gasoline, and the States levy an average tax of 22 cents on each gallon. This does not account for all State and local taxes, such as sales taxes, so this component, ranging from 7.5 to 37.5 cents per gallon across States, is probably understated (and the Distribution and Marketing component correspondingly overstated). …”

Forget about trying to decrease the demand for energy by wage, price and production controls and government regulations and executive orders.
Forget about trying to decrease the supply of energy by banning drilling and not approving permits to drill for oil and gas and build electrical power plants and oil refineries.
The United States government should not be in the energy or real estate business by trying to pick winners and losers with government subsidies and regulations.
The government is the problem by it pervasive interference and intervention into both the energy, transportation, agriculture and real estate sectors of the economy.
Government produces nothing but uncertainty, inflation and massive debt.
If the Federal and state governments simply got out of the way the United States economy could double its rate of growth with a full employment.
Instead the United States economy now has more government employees than employees in the manufacturing sector.
Both Federal and state governments collect more in taxes from energy suppliers than the profits earned by energy companies.
The professional politicians of both political parties together with the government bureaucracies have become a drag on the economy and a threat to the liberties of the American people.
Get Federal and state governmenst out of business and businesses out of goverments.
First, permanently shut-down the Department of Energy, Department of Transportation, Department of Interior and Department of Agriculture.
Second, sell off Federal lands to the highest bidders.
Third, lift all bans on oil and gas exploration on land and at sea.
Fourth, end all subsidies and mandates starting with ethanol.

Fifth, drill, drill, drill.
Dramatically increase the supply of all forms of energy fuels including coal, nuclear, natural gas,and petroleum used for electrical power generation, transportation and heating.
The United States does not need an energy policy.
The United States and the American people are perfectly capable of producing all of the energy it needs from domestic sources.
This requies Federal and State governments to stop government intervention into the economy in the form of regulations, taxes, subsidies, and endless lawsuits.
What the United States needs to do is unleash free enterprise to produce the cheapest energy possible whatever the fuel source.
If wind and solar energy cannot make it in the market place without government subsidies, then stop the subsidies now.
If ethanol requires a government mandate to force Americans to use have it in their gasoline, then repeal the mandate now.
Obama Hates US…
DRILL! DRILL!! DRILL!!!
Take decisions about energy, transportation, agriculture and real estate out of the hands of the government and put these decision in our hands–the hands of the American people.
In Our Hands: American Free Enterprise, Anti-Communism, and the Cold War (1950)
With less than 5% of the world population and less than 6% of world’s land, the United States today produces over 20% of the world’s gross domestic product. Sixty years ago the United States produced nearly 50% of the world gross domestic product!.
Put the American people back to work in a peace and prosperity economy and a constitutional republic.
Vote progressive radical socialists out of office including President Obama with his so-called energy policy with his master plan.
” In spite of the anticapitalistic policies of all governments and of almost all political parties, the capitalist mode of production is still fulfilling its social function in supplying the consumers with more, better and cheaper goods.”
~Ludwig von Mises, Planned Chaos, page 15
“Capitalism means free enterprise, sovereignty of the consumers in economic matters, and sovereignty of the voters in political matters. Socialism means full government control of every sphere of the individuals life and the unrestricted supremacy of the government in its capacity as central board of production management.”
~Ludwig von Mises, Bureaucracy, page 10

Oil Crises and History
By Ed Wallace
“…Then the most overlooked story of all came out: Oil Movements, the British firm that tracks oil shipments worldwide, pointed out that OPEC nations were already shipping less oil last month. Not because of any uprisings or closures of oil fields as in Libya, but because oil shipments always fall this time of year. Refineries worldwide go down for maintenance, preparing to switch to summer fuels for the northern hemisphere and winter fuels for the southern regions.
In a nutshell, the system already has some slack because refineries don’t want as much oil right now.
Here in America, oil marketers have not picked up oil in certain Texas counties because there’s a shortage of tankers and rail cars to carry all of the crude available. That’s because refiners want oil from the Midwest and EF Sour Crude. Those carry a discount right now, which improves refiners’ profits.
Basically, oil prices are once again being over-hyped based on speculation. This time the only legitimate fear is that, if Saudi Arabia comes undone, a real oil crisis might break out. But that possibility is remote. …”
Oil Prices and History
“…The total estimated amount of oil in an oil reservoir, including both producible and non-producible oil, is called oil in place. However, because of reservoir characteristics and limitations in petroleum extraction technologies, only a fraction of this oil can be brought to the surface, and it is only this producible fraction that is considered to be reserves. The ratio of producible oil reserves to total oil in place for a given field is often referred to as the recovery factor. Recovery factors vary greatly among oil fields. The recovery factor of any particular field may change over time based on operating history and in response to changes in technology and economics. The recovery factor may also rise over time if additional investment is made in enhanced oil recovery techniques such as gas injection, water-flooding, or microbial enhanced oil recovery.
Because the geology of the subsurface cannot be examined directly, indirect techniques must be used to estimate the size and recoverability of the resource. While new technologies have increased the accuracy of these techniques, significant uncertainties still remain. In general, most early estimates of the reserves of an oil field are conservative and tend to grow with time. This phenomenon is called reserves growth.
Many oil-producing nations do not reveal their reservoir engineering field data and instead provide unaudited claims for their oil reserves. The numbers disclosed by some national governments are suspected of being manipulated for political reasons. …”
