Windfall profit tax, normally I would be against it. When dealing with big oil, it’s a different story. I’m still a bit reluctant, while I lean towards applying this or other means to control out of hand fuel prices. There is a difference between Apple and Exxon, I don’t need an Ipod, I don’t have to purchase an Ipod. When it comes to oil and gas, I literal cannot survive without some type of fuel source. Let me expand just a bit more, oil beneath American soil is a natural resource. That oil doesn’t belong to big oil, it belongs to The Government of the United States, that oil belongs to us. Anyone who purchases land, only owns up to two feet below the surface. All resources below that two feet belong to the Government. What our Government does is lease out or subcontract big oil to develop the fuel or the products we need as a nation. Lobbyist for oil and gas companies are very powerful. It does cross party lines, I live in a very prominent democrat district in Indiana. We have one gas company(Nipsco), no one else is allowed to do business in the area. If I want to heat my home, I have to use Nipsco. When a company uses the Government to shut out competition, they should accept the regulations placed upon them.
