“Under my plan, of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”
In this rare moment of candor, this politician, then Senator Obama, provided an honest appraisal of his own philosophy.
“Can you get the American people to say this is really important….that requires mobilizing a citizenry. That requires them understanding what is at stake.”
No, President Obama, our “understanding” is not required. After all, aren’t we all just bumpkins who don’t understand? You, representing the Federal Government, already possess all that is required – the brute force of power. The Federal Government need not mobilize a citizenry as you suggest. The passage of HR 2454 in the USHOR is ample proof. Once the Executive Branch and a narrow majority in House & Senate have conspired behind closed doors to concoct legislation, it can often impose its will upon our entire nation. That’s right, about 279 people pushing an agenda, no matter how corrupt, self-congratulatory, or ill-advised.
Does the USA need an energy policy to insure its national security? Yes. Do we need to be force-fed this “cap and trade” bill? Surely not.
George Washington said it best, “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence. It is force, and like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”
BE A PATRIOT: Are you willing to allow your electricity rates to skyrocket? Are you happy that the U.S. House of Representatives (USHOR) has passed the so-called “Cap and Trade” legislation? Are you pleased that your Representative or his leadership in the House did not even read the approximately 1500 pages of legislation before passing it? It’s not too late to make your voice heard. Call, fax, and email your Senator now. Next, even though the House has voted, let your Representative know how you feel, and require them to pass along your opinion to your Senator. Call your state legislators, call your city and county officials. Make them all hear your voice and heed your words.
Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) claims that “the American people really don’t care” about the billions of dollars wasted by Congress annually on pork-barrel spending.
We, the 286 million Americans living outside of New York, who didn’t vote for Mr. Schumer, disagree with his mindless chatter. Mr. Schumer, we, the People, DO very much care about your irresponsible borrowing against our children’s futures to fund your profligate pork-barrel spending. In fact, many of us more than just care – we vehemently object.
Perhaps, Mr. Schumer, you should “revise and extend your remarks,” and in the future, speak only on behalf of small minority that actually voted for you. Don’t presume to speak for my family, friends, or the American people.
Listen to Mr. Schumer’s speech, then compare his words to those of Thomas Jefferson:
“I, however, place economy among the first and most important republican virtues, and public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared.”
