    Keep up the proselytizing. Energy independence from these super-international corps is only part of the process. We must get away from the corporate structure itself or we will be on the losing end of this mafia of corp./ruling class/MBA's who have strangled our political system and our free-market economy.

    A different organizing structure based on co-ops is the only way to re-establish a link between the worker and the business they are involved in. Right now, we live in a dictatorship of the investor class. (They even stole our pensions with their 401k's, which I think is the whole point of privatization, theft!) And until we get back to co-ops, it was a grange system in agrarian times, we don't stand a chance of overcoming their death grip.

    •  Energy independence a bipartisan issue (none)
      There are some fairly conservative Republicans who have gotten on the energy independence/renewable fuel bandwagon.

      James Woolsey, former CIA Director, C. Boyden Gray, WH Counsel to Bush Sr., and Robert McFarlane, Reagan's National Security Adviser, are all members of the Advisory Board to a group called American Council on Renewable Energy, which `is focused on accelerating the adoption of renewable energy technologies into the mainstream of American society...'

      Woolsey has been pushing this issue for many years, and did an influential piece in the journal Foreign Affairs in 1999 with Senator Richard Lugar (R, IN).

      •  Bi-partisan issue? (none)
        Hi- I really hate the term bi-partisan these days.
        Aside from that, Energy conservation and getting free of dependence on oil is not bi-partisan, it is an American issue.
