I originally posted the following opinion piece in December 2009, knowing what Obama’s intentions for America and our liberties were, and the fool in the Oval Office has not let us down with the EPA’s recent regulations wrecking the coal industry. Our very way of life is being strangled to death in this great nation, and we must keep up the effort to bury the EPA or we are doomed:
If the EPA leftists in the Obama administration think they are intimidating the American people with their proclamation that they will enact “command and control” of our nation if congress doesn’t enact the destructive Cap and Trade legislation, with its draconian measures to control anything that is a source of energy, they are badly mistaken. What they are saying is that if congress doesn’t cripple the nation and take away the freedoms of Americans by enacting Cap and Trade, the EPA will destroy the nation completely without any legislative input.
How do these bureaucratic fools threaten the people of this great nation and not be called Hitlers? How dare they! And this is our own government that threatens us with economic destruction, not a foreign power, and in the middle of a depression with 10 % unemployment! Global warming and the health threats of CO2 emissions are base on lies, and bureaucratic control of our economy threatens us with impoverishment if we let them win.
My response to this unbelievable threat is “Bring it on”! If the Obama administration thinks it can make us buckle under to their threats they are wrong. I want Cap and Trade legislation to die a miserable death, and for the administration to threaten us with even meaner controls on our freedoms and economy if there is no legislation, is true stupidity.
Congress must defund the EPA immediately and repeal their enabling legislation, and send these idiot bureaucrats home to join the lines of the unemployed where they belong. Any knowledgeable candidate for congress in 2010 should include this plank in their platform, and the American people must assure the unemployment of the Obama administration in the next presidential election.
But whether it’s legislation or administrative edict that causes this nation to suffer, the engaged and already enraged citizens will fight back, and the unengaged will join them in outrage at the national destruction being done by the ideological leftists in Washington, and they will fall at the ballot box.
The only hope for us is to ignore the Obama administration’s threats and insist that legislators reject ObamaCare and Cap and Trade. If these bills become law, the citizens of this nation will suffer more than they can imagine.
