It's also been learned foreign oil companies are pouring money into the American Chamber of Commerce to help elect Republican congressmen so foreigners can continue to “buy” favorable legislation. There is no way the Democrats can compete with the kind of money big oil has — but we have something much more powerful than their dollars — our votes.
