On March 15, 2010, Hugo Chavez is sending the Venezuelan Military’s troops out to its people’s houses to forcibly change people’s lightbulbs with energy-efficient CFL bulbs because a drought has reduced their hydroelectric production. The comparisons between Obama (and American Progressives) and Venezuelan dictator, Hugo Chavez are frighteningly similar. What would you think if the U.S. Military were ordered to enter your home and confiscate all of your lightbulbs? The Progressives reading this would think: “Great! We can finally get our Energy Hogs under control by force.” You should be afraid to share a country with people who think like that. There are other lessons here. Look at what happens when a nation is dependent upon hydroelectric power only . . . or wind power. When the rain doesn’t fall, or the wind doesn’t blow, the lights go out. The refirgerators fail and everyone starves . . . in the dark. It may surpirose you to know that our Democratically controlled Congress has already outlawed incandescent lightbulbs (the monofilament type invented by Thomas Edison); however, they are not illegal until 2014. Will our military, or law enforcement be sent to enforce compliance? Well, Obama has already implemented his plan to inspect all homes before they are permitted to be sold to ensure that they comply with green policies such as light bulbs, etc. What happens if you don’t want to let them in? Well, what happens if you don’t pay the ObamaCare fines? Imprisonment for 1-5 years. If you think imprisonment is off the table for green offenses think again. When the interests of the collective are placed higher than those of the individual, individuals are crushed for the greater good. History has shown this. In the U.S.S.R., Stalin executed virtually all farmers because his confiscation of their crops after they had worked their entire lives to farm was undersrtandably met with some resistance. The farmers were executed and the resistance ended . . . so did the productivity of the farms. The point is that Statism (socialism, communism, Marxism) is the belief that the collective leaves no room for the individual; not even enough room for their right to live.
