In California, they are debating raising the cost of energy use at peak times to avoid blackouts. If that was to happen, energy use would not be curbed but the bureaucrats would benefit from the profits. The reason we have blackouts is not because of usage, it is because of the lack of power plants. Nuclear power is safe, but we are the only country that refuses to use it. We build wind farms, then we are told that poor defenseless birds fly into the propellers. Coal is too dirty. Where does it stop? Remember, the environmental movement is the new home for displaced communists and socialists. Given a chance they will tell you how to live every aspect of your life!
A proven method of filling the government treasuries is to cut taxes. President Bush has cut our taxes while in office and our country's economy is booming. An indisputable fact is that the United States' economy in the past 33 months has increased in growth by the TOTAL size of the Chinese economy. There's a tidbit there for you people worried about China! Remember when someone says increasing some taxes will benefit some group of people they are dead wrong, it is a way of controlling behavior and nothing else!
By the way, where are all the hurricanes this year? We are near the halfway point of summer and supposedly global warming was going to increase the frequency and strength of storms yet again. Luckily the Kyoto Protocol was never signed. If it had been, we would be forced to buy carbon credits on the open market to support our economy and lifestyle. Can you imagine what gas and home utilities would cost if that would have been signed? This is just another case of costly taxes trying to control the way we live.
Think hard before voting to
increase taxes, because they will be with you forever!
