Our side is corrupt, but the other side is more corrupt.

I was thinking about high gas prices, and I wondered, “Why do we have ExxonMobil, instead of one supplier named Exxon and one named Mobil? Isn’t competition the beauty of capitalism? Why do Exxon and Mobil no longer compete?

Maybe we don’t have capitalism. What would you call an economic system based on the purchase of politicians?

In 1998 Exxon and Mobil lobbyists purchased politicians who would approve their merger. Since then their stockholders benefit from the higher prices consumers pay at the pump. Apparently, the purchase of politicians at the best possible price is what we call “democratic capitalism.”

That is what I think about when I think about high gas prices.
