Tax oil to the max

It looks like Gov. Parnell is succumbing to the pressures of the true manipulators of our world and government, the elites, who are in a big way big oil. He may be putting up the front that he wants to reduce tax on big oil. Big oil makes big lies when they promise to give jobs if we reduce their tax. Don't listen to them or Parnell.

I kind of liked Parnell before this stance. The U.S. dollar is going to dramatically reduce in value in the near future. In a couple of years, domestic oil production will resume in a big way, I believe, regardless of how we tax. I say tax oil to the max, then invest these revenues for worthy Alaska endeavors that promote our own energy independence like Fire Island, small personally owned wind generation, any clean energy systems, our own gas line and others that will in turn bring jobs and prosperity to Alaskans.
