Same closing question for all of the liberal trolls. What EXACTLY about DOUBLE the price of GAS do you like?

The usual idiot Communist response. They have the fixed belief that the "unfettered capitalist" will just set their price higher and higher and higher. Only government control can possibly stop that from happening.

Let me tell, you Dottie Girl - an "unfettered capitalist" oil company will _not_ set its gas price at $8.00 a gallon - because it is not as stupid as you are. At that price, people _will_ buy the toy electric cars (and start screaming for power plants), or take the bus, or walk - just as Chu and Obama want them to do. The oil company will see a _steep_ drop in profits.

I am an independent software consultant - my clients _need_ my services, they can't do business without them - but I can't set my price at $5,000 an hour (and, in my case, the government will let me do it). Starvation is _not_ on my agenda.

With many in the mainstream media predicting a decisive victory for President Obama and Democrats all over the country, some are now writing pre-emptive obituaries for the Republican Party.

Politico's Jonathan Martin has one such piece called "The looming GOP civil war - whether Mitt wins or not." Such hysterics include:

Regardless of whether Romney wins or loses, Republicans must move to confront its demographic crisis. The GOP coalition is undergirded by a shrinking population of older white conservative men from the countryside, while the Democrats rely on an ascendant bloc of minorities, moderate women and...
