Liberals steal our freedom inch by inch and it’s all to help us, you know. At first, they came for 100 and 75 Watt bulbs and no one complained. As of today, it is unlawful to either manufacture or import either 40 or 60 Watt incandescent bulbs.
Oh, this won’t affect imports. It affects made-in-the-USA incandescent light bulb manufacturers. Amazing.
So from whom do we buy replacements for our 40, 60, 75 and 100 Watt light bulbs? China. That’s right, communist China manufactures replacement LED and fluorescent bulbs.
What’s the big deal? Why did the liberals outlaw incandescent bulbs? Well, truthfully, they haven’t outlawed them all. You can still buy those tiny bulbs that work in your chandeliers and you can buy ‘heat lamps’.
The underlying reason liberals had to outlaw incandescent light bulbs is to cut energy consumption in our country. Is this due to an energy resource shortage? No, not exactly. What I mean is this: this president promised to put coal-fired power plants out of business by making it too costly to operate them. It’s for the cause of ‘global warming’, don’t you know.
Regardless the science. In spite of the peril to our country due to intentionally limiting energy resources, this president and his liberal cabal continue their assault on American energy.
They want us to rely instead on “alternative energy sources” like solar, wind power, etc. No, we have to eliminate hydroelectric power plants, because they affect the fish. They make it too difficult to construct nuclear power plants and they hate our oil and gas industries.
Along with fellow Texan T. Boone Pickens and other ‘oil patch’ leaders, I say the answer to energy independence lies under our feet. All we have to do is drill, Baby, drill. And, we need pipelines to safely transport crude oil, refined petroleum products and natural gas across the fruited plain to waiting customers.
In 2014, let’s elect conservatives to both houses of Congress who will push back and reclaim our energy independence. Let’s eliminate wasteful federal agencies like the Dept of Energy and the EPA that replicate departments of like tasks in every state of the union.
Awaken, America. 2014 is your last best chance to restore some freedoms that have been stolen from us by the statists.
But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever. – President John Adams
