Once upon a time the EPA was dedicated to implementing common sense environmental regulations – based on the objective interpretation of actual scientific data – that protected our most precious resources without needlessly suffocating private enterprise. Climatologists, not rogue politicians or rabid activists, realized that the activities and indiscretions of man paled in comparison to that giant yellow ball in the sky composed almost entirely of Hydrogen and Helium – also known as, the Sun. Unfortunately, then came along an underachieving, racist, pot-smoking Marxist who attended Harvard via affirmative action to further his insatiable hatred for America’s economic vitality, global supremacy, Judeo-Christian values, and Anglo-Saxon Founding Fathers. Despite his numerous bigoted and anti-American rants, his sheer comfort with distorting the truth and misleading the masses, this self-lauded Community Organizer went on to win the presidency under the glittering generalities of false “hope” and nondescript “change”. The rest is infamy.
Nearly seven years and a million media buried truths later, the festering plume of progressivism has poisoned the competitive heartbeat of America exceptionalism with record debt and welfare recipients, the worst GDP growth and workforce participation since Jimmy Carter, the highest poverty level in half a century, and a 50 billion dollar monthly trade deficit to reward the unsavory business practices and anti-American banter of third world nations. Barack Obama’s two greatest ambitions were to expand the role of government to the point of unilateralism – until liberty begs for permission to breathe – and to foster mass dependency by strangling the proven economic catalyst known as capitalism. Whereas the trillion dollar socialist leviathan known as Obamacare has already cost America countless jobs and reduced the number of full time employees to anemic levels, Mr. Hussein’s rash demand to lower emissions by 33% in a mere 15 years will send energy prices soaring, cripple an already feeble job market, and confiscate hope from an already struggling working class. In essence, our energy situation could become so catastrophically broken that the government would zealously swoop in to seize it in the name of the “common good” and “recalled” Chevy Volts. That’s right… when all other excuses are exhausted, blame evil capitalists for the regulatory “snake oil” sold by Global Warming Scientologists seeking political salvation from their own radical agenda…number 21.
Not only has Barack Obama almost single-handedly pushed the coal industry to the brink of extinction – an estimated 50,000 job losses during his tenure – and furthered our dependence on foreign energy by vetoing the Keystone Pipeline, it’s obvious he’d like nothing more than to personally remove the economy, the Constitution, and the institution of reason from life support. The same Environment Protection Agency that is now deathly concerned the aroma from your backyard barbeque is terrorizing the fragile sensibilities of your neighbors, has somehow found no need to police the pungent smell of Eco-terrorism burning the last vestiges of common sense in the political harem known as Washington, D.C.. Too bad the carbon footprints left by our President’s vacationing heart and Mr. Al Gore’s traveling Science Fiction Theater haven’t been grandfathered into the Guinness Book of taxable liberal lies. The fact New York City has mysteriously defied leftist logic to remain above water without floatees and the polar caps are larger than they were 25 years ago, should hardly raise any red flags of crass exploitation or ulterior motives. Simply follow the money and those standing at the top of its morally bankrupt pyramid.
The same soldiers of statism who left our backdoor open and conveniently forgot to guard our sovereign border, who ignore the reality America was founded on the ideals of limited government and individual liberty, want you to renounce your right to bear arms, toss your Bible into the bonfire and trust in the judgment of Big Government. Protecting and preserving our air, water, and natural resources is a non-negotiable maxim for all of humanity; doing it in accordance to the same progressive playbook that seeks our unconditional capitulation and demise is self-assisted suicide. After all, unless you’re Gru and have the Moon proudly displayed on your magical mantle of repossessed relics, you can no more “control” Mother Nature than you can stop the Sun: the greatest and most unrivaled cyclical source of Climate Change in the entire Solar System.
