Letter | Obama using global warming ‘hysteria’ to help U.N. destory capitalism


Obama aims to bring capitalism to its knees

At the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, President Obama fanned the global warming hysteria during his graduation speech, remarks that are in keeping with his desire to bring America under the mandate of the United Nations.

The goal of the U.N. is to curtail our freedoms and end our capitalistic system. If there was ever any doubt about these objectives, they were dispelled by a statement by top U.N. official, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the Framework Convention on Climate Change who admitted the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity, but to destroy capitalism.

She said: “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution.”

This goal will be accomplished through militant and destructive Environmental Protection Agency activism, and also through the long sought(mainly by Democrats) punitive carbon tax, which will dramatically increase the prices of not only electricity but every product, including the food we eat.

This malicious mischief is being championed not just by President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, but also by tragically misinformed U.S. senators such as Dick Durbin and Chuck Schumer. Big business magnates such as Robert Rubin and Michael Bloomberg salivate over the zillions that will be made from “carbon exchanges.”

If you think corn ethanol was the cruelest hoax that our government could pull, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Wake up, America!
