It's Official, We are now being force fed the ethanol fraud

Up until the other day, there were 2 gas stations that still offered real gasoline. By "real gasoline" I mean gasoline untainted with ethanol. Me, and many others made it a point to fill our tanks exclusively at those two stations. I don't know about the rest, but I made it a point to let them know why I drove out of my way to fill up there. The attendants let me know that I wasn't the only one, and that they appreciated it. King Doyle (Wisconsin's Thief in Chief) and his merry minstral in the Wisconsin State Legislature stole our freedom of choice. With their Marxist mandates, they made it so difficult for distributors of "real gas" that there is no longer a viable way for local stations to offer it. Now we are stuck with a totally inferior product that causes more pollution and gets lower gas mileage. Our engines will require more maintenance and our 2 stroke engines' life span are drastically cut. If this crap was a viable alternative, it would be profitable without being forced down our throats. But it's not viable. It is distructive and wasteful. But what choice do we have in a state where freedom is considered subversive and a wannabe petty dictator reigns with an iron fist. King Doyle, if there was an ounce of justice in this state, your arm would be the next recipient of the lethal injection needle.

I don't much care for strong arm tactics.. like you said, if it's a good product we wouldn't be forced to buy it.. It isn't very good for Harleys.. or my old lawn mower.. (well, it's not that old, still not good for it.)

ParaTed we lost the right to choose what kind of fuel we can use in our automobiles when leaded gas was outlawed. Of course that was for our safety. Even though cars driving on leaded gas got better gas mileage, and lasted long, but we needed the government to protect us from ourselves. Forced ethanol is just one more thing to add to a growing list. Oh well maybe I should just give up and roll over. Why not, maybe you should too. Would it not just be great to join the masses who have decided to let the government take all choice away from us. Why do we even need chooses? Someone is voting these people in.

At least there was a compelling reason to do away with leaded gas...and it was phased out over 15 years. There are NO environmental benefits to ethanol! There are NO benefits of any kind. It doesn't even give us hope for energy independence since we have to buy corn from other countries to keep up with the artificially created demand. It's a total lie.
