Orson Scott Card on Obama, Part 2

If you’re a science fiction fan, make sure you buy everything Orson Scott Card has ever written. He certainly deserves it:

Obama isn’t cutting taxes for the poor, because they don’t pay any.

Instead, he’s planning to make it so expensive to generate electricity that only the rich can afford to use their appliances whenever they want.

Why? It’s all in the name of Obama’s True Belief in Global Warming. He says it himself — he’ll take coal off the table as an “ideological matter.” Even if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, he’s opposed to pursuing it.

This is Obama the New Puritan. We’ve found his real religion: Political and Environmental Correctness.

It’s more important to him to eliminate coal than to find practical solutions. Why? Because coal is “bad.” Our groupthinking “intellectual” elite thinks they are post-religious — but they believe in sin and hate the sinners.

(Real intellectuals are skeptical and look for evidence before they embrace an idea; global warming, like the rest of the dogmas of the extreme Left, are believed without proof, by faith alone.)

For the New Puritans, Global Warming is the vengeful god that must be placated. Our economy is the sacrifice to that deity. In the name of Global Warming, we must destroy our quality of life — and, like sales tax, it will hurt the poorest people first and most.

It’s Obama’s first album: America Unplugged.

But the harm to the poor wouldn’t stop with their inability to afford to use the appliances that the rest of America gets to use. With energy costs soaring to assuage Obama’s god, people will have less money to spend. The cost of manufacturing everything would soar.

Let’s see — higher prices, less income. Do you see vast unemployment following?

Not only will the poor be worse off, there’ll be a whole lot more of them.

Why didn’t the San Francisco Chronicle tell us about this back in January, when Obama laid out this plan?

Because it wasn’t good for the rest of the country to know what Obama really plans to do. If we knew the truth, we might not vote for the Anointed Ruler.

So why did this tape emerge now? Maybe some reporter or editor got an attack of honesty. Or maybe they woke up when they saw Obama declare war on the press — punishing newspapers and tv stations that were not sufficiently loyal to the Anointed Ruler.

Good stuff. Read the whole thing.
