U.S. government hopelessly controlled by oil

Will U.S. decay into Mad Max future?
Around the world, especially in Asia, political leaders are calling for, and building, more public transit. Meanwhile the U.S. government is deadlocked trying to fix its highways.
Free Public Transport - Southeast Asia: Taib calls for better public transport: "BorneoPost Online : "KUCHING: An efficient public transportation will not just ease gridlocks and lessen travel time for commuters but will help tourists go around the state see more places."
The U.S. government is controlled by the oil industry. There is no force currently on the stage that is even coming close to opposing that. That is why we say put your energy into your local government policy. Many towns have free transit. Your town can have it too. But we have to stop begging the GOP to "be good" and start talking to our neighbors and pushing for free transit in local political circles.

If you think free transit is "too extreme," think about this. CO2 is at 400ppm. Now THAT is extreme.
