Voices Of The Patriots - Paul Ibettson - Why you should love your carbon footprint

Paul Ibbetson

Paul Ibbetson Is
The Conscience of Kansas

The “Conscience of Kansas” on The Wildcat 91.9 f.m

I had the good fortune to be a guest on Paul Ibbetson's excellent radio show, The Conscience of Kansas when I was announcing my previous epic novel, 'Nimrod Rising'. I was so thrilled to be on a show of that stature. I immediately knew that Paul was a man who only cared for the truth and that he'd tell it, popular or not.

Just before I started this series, I thought about some I have followed and a few I have actually met. These, in this heart-felt need to make them heard, are merely
a thimble full of some great minds of freedom out there in the ocean of Patriots who love this country. I want to facilitate the voices who refuse to be silent, whatever the cost; to let their messages of true American Freedom be read and heard and seen. When I thought of several I want to highlight, Paul Ibbetson immediately came to my mind and I decided there that I would highlight this guardian of liberty.

Paul is a great radio host and a great writer too. He
wrote his book Feeding Lions, a book that separates the sheep from the goats, and I read it, and I understood Paul to be a man with a drive to tell the truth. He is not merely talking about Republicans and Democrats. Paul shows the differences between the two major fundamental patterns of thought and political value systems that move America to the left or to the right, toward moral courage or to a culture based on death rather than life.

Below you can read an
excellent article by Paul Ibettson titled, "Why You Should Love Your Carbon Footprint" I think you'll absolutely agree with me that Paul A. Ibbetson is a voice of a Patriot that needs to be heard and followed, because he is a voice of the truth. That's just what Patriots do.

Why you should love your carbon footprint

July 24, 2009

By Paul A. Ibbetson

America, with all its imperfections, is still truly the land of opportunity. This has been the unique component that has brought people from around the world, in every way imaginable, and even some ways not. This opportunity to succeed and, yes, to also fail, is a product brought about by individual freedom that has been unique to America since our founding fathers placed their lives on the line to create a better future for themselves and their families. If we are to hold worthy the struggle of those who fought to give us a free nation, should we not also observe those who wish to take away both our freedom and the opportunity that living in a free country brings?

The Obama administration is truly a ravenous hydra, in which there are many deadly heads, that must be addressed one set of fangs at a time. This time, the head most near in striking distance is that of the Cap and Trade bill, H.R. 2454, which has passed the House of Representatives and currently is being deliberated on by the Senate.

The case against Cap and Trade is all but overwhelming. The bill runs on the faulty, if not dubious, premise that by the government making it so expensive for the U.S. manufacturing and industrial complex to emit CO2, businesses will turn to "green" alternatives on their own accord. This is to happen while, at the same time, the government selectively sells CO2 permits to industries of its choosing. Beyond creating what Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma described as the largest tax increase in American history, this will inevitably force viable industry outside the U.S. during a recession period — when economic growth is an absolute must for the country's future survival. Also, as painfully obvious, those industries that are privileged enough by whatever system of measure the Obama administration sets forth to be able to buy their emission permits, will then, by the nature of simple economics, charge higher prices to the average American for electricity and other products to recoup their costs. Yes, you and I, the American people, will pay the bill for Cap and Trade.

If that last statement hurts, this next statement will be excruciating. The Cap and Trade program will have no measurable effect on carbon emission reduction. That's none, zero, zilch, nada. Other than creating extreme debt, reducing economic growth and American freedom, Cap and Trade is the equivalent of a dead turtle in what has been promoted as a jackrabbit race. My conversation with Dr. Calvin Beisner, national spokesman for the Cornwall Alliance on my radio program, Conscience of Kansas, only strengthens previous statements made this month by the Environmental Protection Agency that U.S. action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will have no impact on the climate. In effect, our government will spend trillions of American dollars for absolutely nothing.

If there is no upside (and there isn't) to the Cap and Trade bill, then why are liberals throughout the Obama administration trying to push the bill through without proper inspection? Why does the Obama administration give this issue the full court press to include wheeling out Al Gore (who becomes more Bela Lugosi-esque by the second) to sound the "Earth alarm" by way of nothing short of eerie organ music.

The truth is that Cap and Trade is but a symptom of the liberal environmental psychosis, of which capitalism and the free market (and the prosperity both bring), are seen as dangerous and destructive. It is through this derangement that CO2, a naturally occurring substance — crucial for life on this planet, can be seen as a poison and we are all told to hate our "carbon footprint."

It is interesting to note that while science daily disproves the correlation between the growth of carbon emissions and increases in planet temperature, few people speak out about the undeniable correlation between the growth of our "carbon footprint" and the growth of our freedom, stability, and economic prosperity. You see, there are blessings to be found in those big honking carbon footprints. India and China see this clearly, and they have chosen prosperity over carbon credit tomfoolery. Even the little developing nations of the world, with their war, death, and famine, would like to have a shot at a little more carbon footprint growth. That is, they would like to reap the rewards, not the Hollywood hyped detr

iments of the industrial world. With the Obama and Gore liberals of today, it is the

capitalistic smell of the carbon footprint that offends them most; and in defense of such wondrous things, I say, embrace your car

bon footprint, cherish it while you have it, and remember what it has given you. In reality, it is not a burning planet but prosperity, stability, and economic growth. Not a bad smell indeed.


Feeding Lions – The Book


Paul Ibbetson

From "Feeding Lions is a book that comes clean on just why conservatives and liberals can't get in the same room without a fight breaking out. Using a healthy dose of heartland humor, the author takes readers on a journey of discovery that will anger liberals and awaken the dormant conservative who sleeps in the majority of the nation. This book avoids reams and reams of boring statistics and gets down to business right away by laying out the fundamentals of conservatism and why they fall in diametric opposition to liberalism. The goal for this book is quality, not quantity, and each page is full of serious intellectual analysis on the battle being waged for the hearts and minds in this country, and why conservative views MUST win the day."

I hope everyone who reads this will not just think
it is entertainment or the irrational rambling of a scared
American. I am not afraid; I am convinced that no one
will secure our future except us.
That is why I declare the main theme of Patriot Acts
in one key phrase:

No unconditional Talks – Just patriot Acts!
