Romney should state that this is just another grab from the leftists to control the means of production (energy).
This is not just a “grab from the leftists to control the means of production (energy).”
It is one of a coordinated series of “grabs” to get control of every life-sustaining industry in America, from agriculture (the way crops are grown); energy (coal/power plants, nuclear power, oil drilling/processing); transportation (attacks on diesel fuel as pollutants re trains, trucks and ships; oil/gasoline for cars/trucks); communications (the FCC net neutrality, devised by a communist group; Fairness Doctrine revival); Free speech (radio, TV, newspapers, internet re “blasphemy of Islam”); and health care (Obamacare; Sebelius’s attack on the Church and organized religion); etc.
This is how Marxists use the “Salami tactic” in seizing control of a country - eliminate your enemies one by one; take over the key means of communication and energy; and then food distribution control.
It has worked well in the past for the Soviet Union, Red China, Communist Indochina, No. Korea, Cuba, Venezuela (a work in progess, as is Bolivia and Ecuador); Angola; a good part of South Africa today; etc.
Obama learned his marxism early and from the masters (Alinsky; Canter; Rose; Axelrod; Jarrett; Frank Marshall Davis; his grandfather; and his colleges/friends/groups).
