Fuel For Thought
There is, perhaps, no policy more revealing of the duplicity of the Progressivesthan
that of energy. To quote, Barack Obama, "our continued dependence on fossil fuels will jeopardize our national security.
It will smother our planet." No greater lie has been told to the American people in the history of this country.
On the foundation of this monumental lie, he concludes that the only way we will survive is to transition to wind and solar
power, and "the only way to do that is by finally putting a price on carbon pollution."
Most people have been so inundated with Progressive propaganda that they are easily swayed
by these arguments. We all know that we don't have enough oil to provide for our need for gasoline. And it's clear that no
one wants to inhale carbon.
What is missing is that most people don't know that
gasoline can be made from natural gas and coal. They also are unaware that CO2 is the lifeblood of all plant life on this
planet; the producers of the oxygen that we cannot live without. More CO2 begets more and healthier plants. A child in school
ran a simple experiment resulting in more than 80% of respondents agreeing that we should ban di-hydrogen monoxide (otherwise
known as water). What we have here is a failure of the educational system in this country and a blind trust that those who
promote these policies have no other agenda than our wellbeing: nothing could be further from the truth.
Our inability to provide for our own energy needs (otherwise known as gasoline) is solely the result of government
policy. Why do we pump money into old, inefficient technologies such as wind and solar power (wind don't blow, sun don't shine,
the country goes dark), when less federal investment in nuclear power, and natural gas and coal gasification would conservatively relieve
our fuel burden for more than a century? For those who are unaware, America is the Saudi Arabia of both natural
gas and coal! Natural gas can also replace gasoline as a transportation fuel at a lower cost and with lower
emissions than gasoline, but it is illegal to convert an auto from gasoline to natural gas as a fuel for the purpose
of resale! Natural gas conversion would have a near immediate impact on our fuel needs as 85% of all American
autos are more than 7 years old.
The Progressives would
argue; when we've used up all the hydrocarbon resources, what then? Long before we have exhausted our hydrocarbon resources,
solutions will be found. No amount of money can create a technological breakthrough: that takes a unique mind. The more unique
minds we have doing real science, the sooner such a breakthrough will come. Case in point, a team
of German inventors who have invented an electricity generator that produces enough energy to run an auto's systems replacing
the alternator based on a little utilized electrical property that generates electricity through temperature differential.
This system will be cheaper, more efficient, will replace the alternator, and will save gasoline and oil. Another company
has developed a nuclear reactor the size of a refrigerator that can power 20,000 homes with servicing every 7 to 10 years.
These types of breakthrough technology will happen when they happen; their development will be achieved by motivated individuals
with just the right capabilities.
Our government has placed the environment above
people. Remember that: our government has placed the environment above people. We see it in the
agricultural heartland of California and America where the government has turned off the water to the breadbasket of America
to protect, ostensibly, the delta smelt. Any rational person knows that engineers could easily develop a filter
method to protect the delta smelt. In his meeting with the Pope last year, the Pope told our Progressive
president that the environment should not take precedence over people. Yet environmental concerns continue to take precedence
over people with this administration. So what is really going on here?
Progressive movement is an attack on humanity. The goal of the Progressives is to
shrink the population of the earth by denying the resources for survival and the pursuit of a better, more meaningful life.
The Progressive coalition consists of pseudo-environmentalists, productivity-inhibiting unions,
and the disaffected. While the rest of us are trying to create value and services that the people of the world need and want,
the Progressives are organizing, leveraging, and fostering hate to accomplish their goals. The Progressivesare
not interested in progress, they are interested in control. Their army consists of those who cannot do and have not done;
weak people who need to blame their own failure on the success of others. They have never created jobs or improved the lives
of others, they have only succeeded in expanding misery throughout the world. Their enemies are the producer, the innovator,
and the compassionate who know that life is a struggle and that only the strong will survive without our help. Don't believe
me? Why do they attack bankers; the people who accumulate and provide the capital needed to develop new and cheaper products
that improve all our lives? Why do they attack the energy providers who produce the fuels that warm us, cool us, and allow
us to grow food and transport it to those who need it in the cities and countries where food is scarce? Why do they attack
the rich, the people who know success and how to spread it? Why do they attack the pharmaceutical companies whose drugs have
alleviated pain and expanded lifespans? The answer is simple, with the creation of value comes the creation of opportunity;
the alleviation of suffering and the promise of longer and more satisfying lives.
This is a battle between good and evil. It is a battle we must win. It is an eternal battle
and we must be diligent in our efforts to scour this evil from our planet. Energy is necessary to our wellbeing as a species.
There have always been and always will be risks associated with that energy, however to deny our access to and utilization
of it is to deny us our lives and our prosperity: this, then, is the very goal of the Progressive.
