The End of America As We Know It!!


For the First Time In My Life, I Fear My Government!

The End of America as We Know It!

J. D. Longstreet

****************************

Coming up Friday, June 26th, 2009, the Congress of the US will vote on a bill that will, if passed, change America forever. It will not be the America you and I currently know, as of today. It will be an America most Americans had hoped never to see. It will become an America The Founders of this nation had hoped to avoid. It will resemble more a developing nation than a “First-World” nation. In short, it will become that nation we conservatives have been warning the left would produce if given the power to do so by the American electorate. In November of last year the American electorate did just that.

Alan Caruba has written an important piece about what it all means and what it WILL ALL MEAN to us, as Americans, once this bill passes the Congress and is signed into law by the President. You need to read Alan’s commentary. He is getting reaction on it from around the world. It would seem that folks outside the US know more about what this bill will do, than Americans themselves. Altho disquieting, the fact that Americans are the least informed about their own government of any peoples on earth is not surprising. We have a “press” that is completely “in the tank” for the Obama Regime and an educational system overseen/supervised by the left side of the political spectrum in America.

For the first time in my life, I fear my government. I fear what they are going to do to my country and what they ARE DOING to my country. If you feel as I do then you must write, phone, fax, or e-mail your Congressperson and your Senators and ask them to vote NO on the Cap and Trade Bill.

Below is the important commentary, written by Alan Caruba, spelling out what we can look forward to as Americans if the Cap and Trade Bill is passed into law. Please take the time to read it and then contact your representatives in Washington and tell them to vote NO!

The Cap-and-Trade Law: Villainy on a Grand Scale

By Alan Caruba

*************************


Supported by outright lies by the President about “clean” or “renewable energy”, and based on the greatest hoax of the modern era, “global warming”, on Friday Congress is reportedly going to vote on the 1,200-page Waxman-Markey “Cap and Trade” bill (H.R. 2454).

It would impose a huge tax on the provision and use of electricity in the nation.

Energy is the most vital resource America has and we have enjoyed abundant and affordable energy for our long history. That will all change if the Waxman-Markey bill becomes law.

There is no, “global warming.” The Earth is presently ten years into a cooling cycle and it is predicted to last a very long time.

Calling carbon dioxide “a pollutant” is a lie. All vegetation on Earth is dependent on carbon dioxide. Putting Limits on carbon dioxide emissions is idiocy and lunacy.

For the nearly six months since President Obama assumed office and in league with the majority Democrat Party in Congress, the actions taken to date appear to have a single purpose, the destruction of the nation’s economy.

The Waxman-Markey bill is villainy on a grand scale.

It is no accident that President Obama and his acolytes keep calling for “clean energy”, “energy independence”, and babbling endlessly about “green jobs” as the real jobs of Americans are systematically destroyed. Upon taking office, Obama rescinded the executive order to permit exploration of the nation’s offshore continental shelf for the wealth of oil and natural gas it possesses.

It is no accident that his Secretary of the Interior unilaterally cancelled 77 oil and gas leases or that, on March 25, the House of Representatives passed the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009 that adds two million more acres of wilderness to the 107 million acres already “protected” by the federal government.

It is estimated that 300 million barrels of oil and 8.8 trillion cubic feet of natural gas lie beneath these “protected” acres. The government owns 607 million acres of land in a nation founded on the belief in the sanctity and power of private property, the keystone of capitalism.

Even if the bill were to become law, it totally ignores the fact that all the other nations of the Earth will continue to generate “greenhouse gases.” The United Nations Kyoto Protocol, intended to reduce these gases, purposefully exempted China, India, and all undeveloped nations. Its limits are, by definition, meaningless.

The Waxman-Markey bill will, by 2035, reduce the aggregate domestic product (GDP) by an estimated $7.4 trillion. Our present annual GDP is about $14 trillion. It is estimated to destroy 844,000 jobs on average with peak years seeing unemployment rise by over 1,900,000 jobs. It will raise electricity rates 90% after adjusting for inflation. Prices for gasoline and natural gas will rise by 74% and 55% respectively.

This bill will impoverish Americans and destroy the nation.

Out of 307 million Americans, I seriously doubt that more than a relative handful know what Cap-and-Trade means or that it is even being debated, but they, their children, and their grandchildren will, by the actions of this Congress, live in a very different, very costly America.

The Democrats in Congress and the present occupant of the White House, by their actions, must hate America. They pose the greatest threat to its future that has ever existed in our history.

Call, write, fax, and email your representatives in Congress. Let them know you will not stand by idly as they destroy America.

  1. For some reason Australia and New Zealand are against cap and trade. So is Great Britain and other European nations.

    Why should we get stuck with this?

  2. This is the stimulus bill all over again... we write and call and Congress makes abundantly clear that they just DO NOT CARE what they American people think, they are determined to ram this crap down our throats. They don't even have the decency to read it, or even pretend to read it, before they rush it to a vote. It's a disgrace, and like you I am scared for what this country is quickly becoming. I want my children to grow up in a free America with the opportunity to succeed (or fail and try again) based on their own efforts.
