And the insanity continues...

Regardless of what you think about the character of the various leaders of the US, you must admit that most of them are simply idiotic. Most seem to have no clue about real economics, and they believe that they, the almighty thinkers and planners of 270 million person's national destinies, can manipulate the market any way they choose for the supposed "betterment" of their constituents. Not even mentioning the inherent moral problems with their views, the efficiency at which they accomplish these goals is nothing short of ridiculous. If the governments' operations were performed in the private sector with the same results, they would be out of business faster than a dotcom bust.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then you need to go to and start reading. In the meantime, here's some more reading from the Cato Institute on oil, on state hypocrisy, and an article by Karl Beisel on the REAL ID act.
