Brandon, I agree with you, drop the oil subsidies.

Ryan, how about pushing for a reduction in government subsidies to roads? As it stands today, we have no idea what the true cost of driving is. I bet that if transportation was delivered solely by the free market, we would see much denser communities, more pedestrian friendly streets and more efficient highways for businesses to bring us our goods.

However, by allowing government to invest limited capital into free roads, where the value is unknowable, we end up with inefficient modes of transportation, higher energy consumption and less disposable income.

Why not come over to the dark side and join the fight for less government involvement in the economy. Once you get over the stigma of being considered evil, you will find the rewards of allowing consumers to direct the economy well worth the cost.
