End Energy Socialism
For all the genuine differences that exist between the Republicans and Democrats, there are still a needlessly high number of policy similarities between the two, notably on energy policy. This piece on those similarities nicely illustrates the fundamental flaw in energy policy - its refusal to allow competition and its stifling of realworld solutions. Increased drilling for oil manifestly is part of the solution yet is treated as part of the problem; biofuels are treated as part of the solution when they are part of the problem.
