Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences.” —-C.S. Lewis

If the government gets into the business of regulating and controlling carbon emissions it will be an unparalleled concentration of power far exceeding the New Deal under Roosevelt. The government will be in complete control over what businesses and average citizens consume and produce. It is the gateway excuse to rule, regulate and control your daily life in a fashion that we have never tolerated before but are now expected to meekly accept as we attempt to bailout the bathtub with a teaspoon. Never have Americans been so willing to hand over the most fundamental financial, transportation and quality of life decisions to a central authority on such questionable grounds.

We have been brainwashed that climate change is mainly caused by human activity and that somehow carbon taxes, economic socialism, monitoring lawn mower emissions, criticizing cow flatulence and flailing away at the faceless evil that is “oil” will somehow make a difference on climate changes we are only barely beginning to understand, let alone significantly influence one way or another.

Rather disturbingly, presidential hopeful Senator Barack Obama made the following statement while campaigning in Oregon.

“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.” “That’s not leadership,” Obama declared. “That’s not going to happen.”

I’m sorry, excuse me? I’d be happy to see him or one of his cronies point out to me where in the constitution an Obama administration has the right to tell me how much food I can feed my family, or how many miles my car must get per gallon to be legal or whether or not I can turn the air conditioner on. The soft tread of fascism is being heard behind all the “chicken little, the sky is following” environmentalist rhetoric, and those who have bought their propaganda hook, line and sinker are among the most dangerous people to be found in the political arena.

To them human beings, economies, jobs, quality of life, national allegiances, energy prices, free enterprise and other arcane notions such as liberty, freedom and the pursuit of happiness take a back seat to the theorized change in the habits of polar bears (they are increasingly rapidly, not declining but let’s not confuse an issue with the facts) and the possible inconveniencing of some caribou.

It won’t be the neocons who usher in an unprecedented wave of government taxes, regulations and controls into every aspect of American life, but the crying, fainting, ignorant masses who so blindly cry for change without understanding what kinds of change await them if their candidate is swept into office. Be careful what you wish for.

The average middle class American is the target of this new pogrom of the new millennium. Americans are routinely vilified and called lazy, wasteful, gas guzzling ingrates. Americans are somehow almost solely blamed and held responsible for the thawing of permafrost and the cause of the nightmarish embodiment of all evil called global warming simply because hard working people have the sheer audacity to heat their homes, travel to work, grab a hamburger or turn on a fan if it gets hot.

I have often stated that if true fascism ever materializes it will come from the Left, not the Right. It will not spring from Bush’s meager attempts to listen to Al-Qaeda phone calls or build bases in Iraq but from those who so vigorously proclaim that they will do whatever it takes to save the planet from ourselves no matter what the cost. The ones to watch are those who blatantly and unapologetically seek to institutionalize government authority and control over every single aspect of your life. The Green movement is really the watermelon movement; green on the outside, red on the inside, and armed with a fascist mentality when it comes to government intrusion, regulation and control over industry, business and ultimately every aspect of your daily life.

You shall know them by their words and deeds. They are the ones who cheer soon to be $5.00 a gallon gas prices and tell us that we have been spoiled for far too long. They are the ones who wring their hands and gnash their teeth over whether or not they are carbon neutral and loudly clamoring for carbon credits and consumption taxes. They lecture about flying on airplanes or daring to use the internal combustion engine to go see grandma for Thanksgiving. Their antagonism and hatred for the American way of life is palpable and omnipresent. Obama is their chance to seize power, fulfill their vision and enact their agenda. Now is their time for ‘change’. But it won’t be for the better.

Environmentalism is as much a religion as it is a scientific faith and author and columnist (not to mention Democrat and Mormon, he’s an interesting combination) Orson Scott Card makes that point well in Obama’s Real Religion

Barack Obama's comments, however, reveal him to be in the religious-faith category. The Environmental Puritans believe that any opposition to their dogmas is heresy, and that anything that doesn't match their vision of how humans should live is a sin.
Since their vision of how humans should live is "without making any difference in how the world would be without humans," we are all, alas, sinners. However, some are more sinful than others, and the United States is the most sinful of all…
… Still, the Environmental Puritans agree with the ayatollahs on this one point: America is the Great Satan. And Obama echoes that view when he refers to our gasoline consumption, our eating, and our air-conditioning and heating as if they were sins for which we are accountable to the rest of the world.

In the very sudden frantic hurry to somehow, someway “slow the oceans from rising” and save the glaciers we have offered complete control of our economy and way of life to a few who are dedicated to dismantling the free enterprise system, destroying the American way of life, exerting near complete control of your life from womb to the tomb while significantly lowering your standard living in a probable fruitless attempt to stem global warming that may or may not be from human activity, the retreat of the last Ice Age, the warming of the sun, or any of a number of other phenomenons.

The fact that no one is even suggesting inconveniencing the growing, polluting and oil guzzling behemoth that is China and the surrounding nations in Southeast Asia should be the most obvious of warning signs to make one pause and think about what is at stake in this ideological grab for unprecedented power in the name of ‘saving the planet’ from ourselves.

Fueling this anger, and the attempts to tax, regulate, strangle, impoverish, inconvenience and generally control the average American citizen is to me an inexplicable anger towards Americans for achieving a lifestyle and standard of living that is the envy of the world, the pinnacle of Western Civilization and the marvel of history. For some reason, the idea that the average American citizen is not living at the low standard of the average Kenyan brings out a rage that is fueling entire political and ideological movements and has engulfed an entire major US political party. It’s most potentially influential and manipulative adherent is leading in the polls and may take the helm of the most powerful nation the earth has ever seen.

Obama has gladly donned the mantle of the radical, environmentalist Left and thinks nothing of calling for radical changes in the role of government, the wholesale curtailing of basic freedoms, the dramatic restructuring of the economy while merely shrugging at how the dramatic rise in gasoline prices is shredding the lives and businesses of millions of Americans and local communities.

Raised a Muslim as a small boy, drifting aimlessly as a youth, and converting to black liberation theology Christianity as an adult, Obama had trouble finding the religion that worked for him. He seems to have finally found his true religion, the faith of environmentalism, and will not hesitate to use his role as a secular messiah to the spiritually lost masses to usher in what is in reality a fascist state.

As my oldest daughter would say, “Too bad, so sad”.

We would be far wiser to plan ahead as to what needs to be done with populations, cities and crop planting if the oceans are significantly rising and the climate is indeed shifting as is claimed. The current cry about global warming and climate change is far less about actually dealing with the situation one way or another than it is about taking away the concept of the choice of the individual and the installment of unquestionable government regulatory over every aspect of the economy, business, consumption and by extension every aspect of your daily life.

But the average person is being brainwashed to accept anything and everything because it is “for the planet” and those few who will have the courage or insight to point out the socialist and fascist character of the takeover of Western Civilization in the name of protecting the planet will be branded as selfish, ignorant, consuming, fundamentalist, knuckle dragging, archaic ingrates who have failed to see the light and are not willing to sacrifice everything on the green altar of climate change.

If Al Gore is indeed the high priest of global warming, Barack Obama is the Messiah like figure promising the masses that he will lead them into the Promised Land.

I leave you with the following quote by Charles Krauthammer:

"Environmentalists are Gaia's priests, instructing us in her proper service and casting out those who refuse to genuflect... And having proclaimed the ultimate commandment---carbon chastity---they are preparing the supporting canonical legislation that will tell you how much you can travel, what kind of light you will read by, and at what temperature you may set your bedroom thermostat."

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

- President Ronald Reagan

 ”I will not cede more power to the state. I will not willingly cede more power to anyone, not to the state, not to General Motors, not to the CIO. I will hoard my power like a miser, resisting every effort to drain it away from me. I will then use my power, as I see fit. I mean to live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors; never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday at the voting booth. That is a program of sorts, is it not? It is certainly program enough to keep conservatives busy, and Liberals at bay. And the nation free.”

—William F. Buckley Jr.

"Liberals want to regulate just about everything: where we live, what fuels we use, what car we drive, whether we can drive or be forced to use government mass transit, where we send our kids to school, what doctor we see, and even to what extent we express our approval or disapproval of others’ lifestyles. It’s hard to find something liberals don’t want to regulate. Is that a world you want to live in?” 

"At such a time in history, we who are free must proclaim anew our faith. This faith is the abiding creed of our fathers. It is our faith in the deathless dignity of man, governed by eternal moral and natural laws. This faith defines our full view of life. It establishes, beyond debate, those gifts of the Creator that are man’s inalienable rights, and that make all men equal in His sight. "

Dwight D. Eisenhower

"And if we elect a government that subverts or weakens or ends our war against terrorism, we can count on this: We will soon face enemies that will make 9/11 look like stubbing our toe, and they will attack us with the confidence and determination that come from knowing that we don’t have the will to sustain a war all the way to the end."

- Orson Scott Card

"In response to skyrocketing gas prices, liberals say, practically in unison, 'We can’t drill our way out of this crisis.”' What does that mean? This is like telling a starving man, 'You can’t eat your way out of being hungry!'  'You can’t water your way out of drought!' 'You can’t sleep your way out of tiredness!' 'You can’t drink yourself out of dehydration!' Seriously, what does it mean? Finding more oil isn’t going to increase the supply of oil? It is the typical Democratic strategy to babble meaningless slogans, as if they have a plan. Their plan is: the permanent twilight of the human race. "

-Ann Coulter

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
-Samuel Adams
