Government is not reason; it is not eloquence—it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master; never for a moment must we allow it irresponsible action.
Whether President George Washington actually said this is a matter of some disagreement, but also, quite beside the point. Government is a fearful master; were this not so —and were this not the predominant opinion among our founding fathers, the structure of our government would be quite different.
I predict future happiness for Americans, if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
Recently, the Environmental Protection Agency sent a memo throughout its numerous (and costly) departments imploring everyone to “build support for its agenda” by tying its regulatory agenda to the personal worries of most Americans . Most people would call this sort of thing manipulative. Thinking people might wonder why manipulation is even necessary within an honest government, and one that is genuine in its effort to guarantee life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to its citizens. The memoranda reads, in part, “Unfortunately, climate change in the abstract is an increasingly —and consistently— unpersuasive argument to make.”
Indeed it is—and for a very good reason.
I believe mankind has a responsibility to care for our planet. I believe that planet earth is God’s own creation; we must care for it in the same way we care for our own offspring —and for the same reasons. Protecting earth and preserving our ecosystems is a worthy and necessary mission. There is one caveat, however: publicly funded scientists must communicate their findings honestly to the people who pay for them.
Among those of you who are capable of critical thinking, climate change is not the issue. It is the false claim that these changes are the proximate result of human activity. Here I should note that the American people might judge more seriously all such claims if the people making them were not jetting around in private gas-guzzling super-sonic luxury aircraft .
Those who make the alarmist claims, based entirely on junk-science, are also those who have a firm grasp on such programs asSustainability and the globalist Agenda 21. Read these with some attention, and note how in order to thoroughly implement such programs, it will be necessary to curtail certain human rights. With reflection back to the initial assertion, that government is force, a freedom loving person should have concerns about the leftist agenda.
What I expect from publicly funded scientific investigation is —well, real science. By this I mean the development of hypotheses based upon the scientific method of investigation. This is absent from the claims of alarmist environmentalists.
Do you agree? If the answer is yes, then you might want to query your senator about where he or she stands since the US Senate recently voted on this; a majority of Senators concluded that the claim is real . For a list of nitwits siding with junk scientists, click here.
