Outrage and Financial Ruin

(Hat tip to Infidel Bloggers Alliance)

Pay attention and find out what Cap and Trade could do to the prospects of selling your home!

It's the Nanny State on eco-steroids!

Excerpt below the fold:
The 1,400-page cap-and-trade legislation pushed through by House Democrats contains a new federal policy that residential, commercial, and government buildings be retrofitted to increase energy efficiency, leaving it up to the states to figure out exactly how to do that.

This means that homeowners, for example, could be required to retrofit their homes to meet federal “green” guidelines in order to sell their homes, if the cap-and-trade bill becomes law.

If you've been planning to use the equity in your home to finance your Golden Years or some other worthwhile endeavor, you might need to rethink that strategy if the Senate passes Cap and Trade.

In the above excerpt, note that individual states will be roped into this mess. Can Cap and Trade, if passed by this Congress, be challenged on the state level on the basis of the Tenth Amendment? Maybe. The Tenth Amendment, known as The States' Rights Amendment, reads as follows:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
Now is the time to start looking at your state government and candidates there who support limited government.

The state level may well be the last stand to combat Cap and Trade. Who is serving as your state attorney general is critical in this matter.

To that end, over the next few months, I'll be spending some time working for limited-government candidates running in the November 2009 elections here in Virginia. Some of my blogging time will likely go by the wayside as I focus on local politics as the last political bastion to curb the growth of The Nanny State. I urge you to do the same, that is, look to your local and state levels for your freedoms!
