    ...............If President Obama allows his energy team to pursue their goals, American taxpayers will be required to pay tens of billions of dollars to special interests such as ethanol producers and windmill owners and American consumers will see huge increases in electricity and gasoline prices.

    Just don't buy some windmill stock. It will fail much like the ethanol debacle.

    These appointments are far from centrists.

    I like the way you try to pare the argument down to a single point and disregard all the other issues and aspects of the big picture. These appointments do not only have authority over national parks etc. They also effect what is going to happen with our energy costs and taxes etc. But nice try...

    And you ignore the fact that there are large areas of our economy and land that are socialistic and have been for a hundred years.

    You write like socialism is some kind of new thing in the United States. Well, it ain't. It goes back at least to President Teddy Roosevelt.

    That is not my argument. My argument is that it has been allowed to go too far to the left. This occurred here in the U.S. just as it did in the U.K. following WWII. Liberal/Socialist Democrats moved us to the left little by little. When/if "conservative" Republicans had the chance they stood pat and did nothing to reverse the course. That is until Reagan came along. He fixed a few things. Now since his days in office our "conservative" Republicans once again compromised and allowed the Liberal/Socialist Democrats to move us back to the left (towards European style socialism) and did nothing to reverse it when they had the mandate with control of both houses of Congress and the White House. In fact they joined in the slide to the left by spending like wild eyed drunken socialists. Now we have elected full blown Socialists as President and V.P. and the Congress is full of other full blown Socialists who will support them in their socialist agenda.

    The Interior designee, Ken Salazar, is an excellent fit. He has a history of working here in Colorado on protecting our natural resources. I also would suspect some of the Bush fanboys should like him as well, as he has been anything but a far leftie. He has actually frustrated a lot of his Democratic constituency for some of his votes in the Senate.
