If there is one issue that both the left and right would miraculously agree on is the abolition of the Federal Reserve. That’s because it is ultimately and directly responsible for one tax the rich and poor alike end up paying – inflation.
“Controlling carbon is a bureaucrat’s dream. If you control carbon, you control life” stated MIT climate scientist Richard Lindzen, another guest speaker, and noted manmade global warming skeptic at the ICCC. And if that dream happens to collude with a multi-billionaire’s Shamanic vision for unlimited profit, the answer to Ebell’s question is a foregone conclusion.

If someone could please inform this to our president elect Mr. Obama, let alone Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and particularly Barney Frank who possibly referred to this ideology by coining the term “changeenism”, unless he meant to say Keynesianism, a few weeks back when informing a reporter that deficits are nothing to worry about.
It’s still a financially Herculean task to compete against the two major parties’ multi-million dollar campaigns to get their candidate into a job that pays only $400,000 per year.
