Sheldon Richman, in his article “Most presidential seekers want energy socialism” makes this comment: “One of the great unnoticed curiosities of the presidential campaign is that even the party that claims devotion to free enterprise is full-out socialist — or, more precisely, fascist — when it comes to energy policy.” He continues, ‘At a recent ABC forum, these candidates recited a list of things “we must do to end our dependence on foreign oil.” “We” means the “we who are forced by government.” Not one of the five showed even a glimmer of understanding that a truly free market would be more than up to the task of ensuring steady and plentiful supplies of energy.’

“And good ol’ boys were drinking whisky and rye, singing this’ll be the day that I die.”
