  My question is not what they are, but who they are. Is CEI a citizens
  group? Are
  they looking out for me? I think not. They are looking out for the
  economy, which
  in the wonderful world of reaganomics, has a trickle-down effect to
  benefit me.
  The common thread between the right-wing and libertarians is they look
  out for
  business. This seems an irony that the ones with the money (read power)
  need a
  voice like CEI.
