Shut Down the Energy Department

*** begin quote ***

Finally, the very existence of a Department of Energy sends the wrong message: That the Federal Government should have the authority to control energy production and distribution.

Markets provide a more efficient, less-costly method of producing and distributing the energy needs of producers and consumers. You wouldn’t want The State to ration your food, clothing, or shelter, would you? If not, then why should The State control energy supplies?

Some functions of the Energy Department should be transferred to the Defense Department. The rest should be eliminated altogether. Ending the Department of Energy will send the RIGHT message: Our energy needs are too important to be left up to the whims of political favor and unelected bureaucrats.

*** end quote ***
