After More Than 100 Years of Outrageous Government Subsidies and Poisoning People Shouldn't the GASOLINE Industry Stand On its Own

Opponents of alternate fuels, or as I like to call them "those unpatriotic SOBs that work for enemies of the United States," keep running their mouths off about how the corn-based ethanol industry should stand on its own two feet and stop depending on the United States taxpayer for unneeded and unwarranted subsidies. But isn't it amazing that they forget to mention that the gasoline/oil industry has been receiving government subsidies for more than 100 years. The gasoline industry is a fully mature profitable industry, and it's been so for almost the entire time that they've been receiving government support.

Why do they keep forgetting to mention this?

And how about the hundreds of thousands of American servicemen who have died fighting to protect gasoline interests, not to mention the billions upon billions that we spent sending soldiers to die. Why is there a "coalition" of American businesses who oppose ethanol and other alternative fuels? Why, because they are not told the truth.

And what about the lead poisoning and air pollution we've all been subjected to by using gasoline? Why do the gasoline SOBs keep forgetting to mention this?

Gasoline use should be mandated out of existence in the United States. We don't need it, we don't need seeing our young people killed to protect the likes of the OPEC despots.

Demand alternative fuels and vehicles now; fuels that can be produced domestically with no reliance on foreign materials, and vehicles that use only these fuels.
