Oh the Left will be in full PDS bloom after they read this column by America’s favorite governor. In fact, they will likely not even read it, they will just go into full blown PDS and condemn it. You, however should read it!
Unfortunately, many in the national media would rather focus on the personality-driven political gossip of the day than on the gravity of these challenges. So, at risk of disappointing the chattering class, let me make clear what is foremost on my mind and where my focus will be:
I am deeply concerned about President Obama’s cap-and-trade energy plan, and I believe it is an enormous threat to our economy. It would undermine our recovery over the short term and would inflict permanent damage.
So, now we get a glimpse into what Palin will be doing once she leaves the Governors chair. And we might now know that her “issue” of choice will be energy. very good, she certainly understands it having governed Alaska. And she knows what cap and trade will do to athe economy.
The ironic beauty in this plan? Soon, even the most ardent liberal will understand supply-side economics.
The Americans hit hardest will be those already struggling to make ends meet. As the president eloquently puts it, their electricity bills will “necessarily skyrocket.” So much for not raising taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 a year.
Even Warren Buffett, an ardent Obama supporter, admitted that under the cap-and-tax scheme, “poor people are going to pay a lot more for electricity.”
We must move in a new direction. We are ripe for economic growth and energy independence if we responsibly tap the resources that God created right underfoot on American soil. Just as important, we have more desire and ability to protect the environment than any foreign nation from which we purchase energy today.
Ah, I love the line about Liberals understanding supply-side economics. Now, while the Left and the elitist “Conservatives” like Peggy Noonan scoffs at the piece, trust me they will, we should pay heed to its warnings. Frankly, it does not take a brilliant mind to figure out what cap and trade will do to our economy.
No, that is not a shot at Sarah Palin, she is a very bright woman who, unlike many of the “educated intellectual elites” has common sense. And what Anerica needs now my friends is political leaders with common sense. Not politicians who have no guts, and certainly not “elites” who are more concerned with looking down their nose at the middle class than with doing the right thing.
