The View From 1776

Obama’s Violation Of The First Amendment

Dogged belief in humans’ ability to control the world’s climate is a matter of secular, socialistic religious doctrine.  Imposing it via executive fiat amounts to unconstitutional establishment of a national religion.

Belief in global warming is not based upon legitimate science.  Even its most ardent propagandists - the UN, NASA, and the New York Times - admit that there has been no meaningful global warming in more than a decade, the period in which high priest Al Gore predicted worldwide floods from melting polar ice caps.

Climate Gate revelations of “scientists” conniving to suppress evidence, to distort facts, and to fabricate lies wholesale made clear that the whole of global warming hysteria is, first, a greedy, cynical, and criminal conspiracy by practitioners of scientism (phony science) to extort money from the rest of us to feather their own nests.  Second, it is deeply believed religious doctrine by liberal-progressives, who firmly believe that having, in their imagination, killed God they can control and direct all of God’s natural world.

Just as reasonable arguments with Jihad suicide bombers are useless, so reasoning with the likes of Obama and his liberal-progressive backers is unavailing.  We are in a situation analogous to conditions that precipitated the Declaration of Independence in 1776.  A tyrannical George III and the British Parliament were bound and determined to impose their will upon the American colonies, even if doing so meant overriding the historical political liberties of Englishmen.

Given that global warming hysteria is unscientific and founded only in secular, socialistic religion, Obama is replaying the role of George III.  His plan to impose industry-killing, jobs-destroying, and family budget-busting cost increases is unconstitutional tyranny.

There is some hope that Obama will not succeed.  See Why Obama‚Äôs Plan to Cut Carbon Emissions Could Be DOA
