CLIMATE CONTROL SCAM

Climate control is one of the biggest scams in history. Even if you are arrogant and naive enough to believe people cause climate change, you don’t want any part of this international scam. Forget for a moment, you who are non-believers in the myth of humans causing change, the simple truths that climate does change, has changed, and will change. Also imagine that some prehistoric people emitted enough greenhouse gas to melt the deep glaciers of the ice age. You must also isolate natural causes like volcanoes, forest fires, methane gas leaks, meteor strikes, changes in the radiation from the sun, and small shifts in the earth’s orbit. Having ruled all those possible causes out, we now have an iron-clad case that humans are the cause of climate change, not cooling, but warming.

The president’s plan to attack this critical problem is still a scam. His proposal of levying a carbon tax on America and some places in Western Europe is simply another progressive ideological part of Obama’s core beliefs. It is a wealth distribution plan to further turn America into just another member of the United Nations subject primarily to international law. Taxing American industry as the biggest user of carbon-based fuel and distributing the collected taxes to those who burn little or no carbon fuel in their industries, especially if they have no industry. China and India, two other huge consumers of carbon fuels will pay no taxes because they know it is a scam and will not sign the treaty. They don’t see any gain in sending their wealth to other nations just to equalize wealth. Somewhere they missed the progressive, socialist, or communist requirement that all nations and people must strive to equalize the playing field by mandatory distribution of wealth, personal or national.

Ask  yourself why any president with critical problems on the domestic front as well as those of national security and foreign policy, would bring up climate change now. Maybe he needed some misdirection and this issue, income distribution internationally, is very important to him and his progressive ideology. No matter the reason, it is outside what any previous president would bring up at a time like this with all the critical problems facing the nation. Very strange to say the least.

There is another reason President Obama wants to approve this treaty by executive order. There is no way he could get a two-thirds vote in the Senate.  Even though John Kerry strongly supports climate control, only the far left fringe would vote today for a climate control treaty. The founders called for a two-thirds Senate vote to approve treaties to keep any group of fanatics from burdening the nation with bad treaties. Unfortunately, there is no founder’s provision to protect us from lunatic executive orders, except the ballot box.

BEYOND THE WORDS

Words are the fuel of politics. During an election cycle as important as this one, Americans are bombarded with words that are interpreted according to the experience, education, and existing beliefs of the audience. One of these terms, “share the wealth,” has been a cry of the progressive utopians, socialists, and communists. Hitler’s Germany used the promise of shared wealth and “every one belongs to the government.”  Nazi Germany was not a right-wing autocracy. They called themselves The National Socialist Party. Lenin and Stalin’s Russia was a dictatorship of the proletariat (today’s have-nots.)   This, too, was extreme left wing group. Land, bread, peace was the early slogan. Class warfare was the end result. Share the wealth certainly fit this monstrous regime. Mao’s communist China  also promised a wealth-sharing economy.

Is there anyone who would like to live under any of these regimes with left-wing roots who practiced genocide and class warfare in the name of “sharing wealth” and with all people swearing allegiance to the government and all benefits coming from the government?  Everyone belonged to the government. Party and government were the same.  Only the leaders of government or party benefited. To various degrees, the people under these regimes struggled to overthrow these totalitarian regimes.

We, in America, have a history of well-meaning populists, progressives, or socialists writing about the beauty of living in a utopian society where everyone worked for the good of the society, with all sharing in the common good. These societies all fell. The experiments all failed because the reality of leveling society means the exceptional or better than average have to be pulled down for everyone to have equality and sharing of the wealth generated by others. The field of civilization can not be evened by everyone being pulled up to be exceptional. Everyone can not be exceptional. But everyone’s status in life can be improved by hard work in a society that does its best to give everyone  equal opportunity.

One of the enduring lessons of history is that some level of government is necessary and circumstances can cause the relative size of government to increase to meet threats. The more powerful a government becomes, the greater danger it is to individual freedom. Under President Obama, the federal government is constantly increasing in size and scope. The Executive Office has assumed powers formerly and constitutionally left to Congress and the states. Cabinet officers now routinely issue Department orders, not Executive Orders, that have the force of law. In the first two years of  his administration, while we were all consumed with the push to nationalize health care, the ground work was laid to steadily increase the power of the Executive Office. Four more years of this type of government and Greece will look good. Beware of leaders who espouse class warfare, using the slogan “everyone pays a  fair share” and sharing of wealth and the joy of belonging to the government.
