    The “conservatives” in Congress, especially in the Senate, will do everything they can to block a vote on any legislation that raises the liability cap or forces BP and other oil companies to fully pay for environmental damages. A common argument I’ve heard from some of the rank and file “conservatives” is that liberals/progressives/democrats oppose offshore drilling. That is a lie. We’d rather not have offshore drilling occur, but, in large, we are rational and know that the resource is needed. What we’re calling for is that companies have more safeguards in place to prevent environmental disasters, and that companies pay all costs associated with mistakes caused by their actions. Each of us has to be responsible for our own actions, and corporations should be responsible for theirs.

    I’ve never seen a better reason for nationalizing *all* energy companies.

    I do not think with BP out of the picture we as america would be hurting…as they think. We have so many positive resources other than oil, in America to make our lives easyer. biodesil, alge, ect.. I think we need to get out of the Gulf…and start using our positive resources. We would flourish and our air and oceans would have the chance to Live again…BP too money hungry for my taste.
