Just what we need, a Nation that adopts Sustainable Development that is doomed to fail. This is socialism , that never works, along with sustainable development that’s unsustainable. You betcha, that’s what I want in my neighborhood. This would give the government even more administrative power. More regulations and less rights for us. I don’t want to be Europe.
Europe’s debt is so great there are riots in the streets. They want us to spend so much money on sustainable development, we can’t afford to live and pay taxes. Our tax money will go to pay off the deficit and the cost of this ‘sustainable’ development, and it will compromise the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
In the meantime, we lose our individual rights. Oh yeah, that sounds great! Maybe it won’t be so bad being like Europe. Oh wait, they suck!! Tell me what you think. The following are excerpts from a great article at Big Government.
From Big Government.com:
This year marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the United Nation’s Brundtland Report, which defined Sustainable Development as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” But aristocratic socialists have corrupted the sustainable development movement into a vehicle to achieve vast administrative power for themselves. Nations that adopt Sustainable Development are doomed to fail at meeting the needs of the present generation and through debt accumulation from deficit spending will consign future generations to a life as debt slaves.
Through the early 1980s, socialist Latin American economies powered growth by quadrupling their indebtedness from $75 billion to $315 billion. With aristocrats controlling government, while the poor had no voice in these loan matters, nor did they benefit from them as most of the loan proceeds were siphoned off to benefit the aristocrats and their crony amigos.
When Ronald Reagan was elected President in 1980, the U.S. economy had suffered a decade of stagflation, turning our Midwest manufacturing base into the Rust Belt. Reagan was determined to regain international economic dominance by reasserting our Founding Father’s demand for limited government and maximum personal liberty. Reagan viscerally believed what John Adams wrote:
the moment the idea is admitted into society, that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence
Reagan’s relentless focus overcame the bi-partisan drumbeat to continue the socialist expansion of the money supply to promote growth. He then leveraged monetary restraint with the largest income tax cut in American history to power the American economy to sustained growth with low inflation.
