This is what the Mayor of Gastonia looks like. This is what the Mayor of Gastonia does with her time. This is what the U.S. Conference of Mayors is encouraging, i.e. mayors supporting Sustainable Development through the worship of Mother Earth.
What is the purpose of government? Celebrating Earth Day? Forcing people to comply with the United Nations' Agenda 21? Implementing Eminent Domain for Greenways? Using the force of government to tax people into submission? Creating high density corridors in order to force people out of rural areas? Regulating farmers out of the use of creeks to water their cattle? Using our tax money for grants to hand out to favored businesses who comply with Sustainable Development or Smart Growth? Taking privately owned land to create "buffer zones" around all water sites? Dressing up in costumes to lead the indoctrination of our youth? Taxing one business to support competing businesses in the name of downtown renewal? Using NGO councils to determine government policies without referendums?
Our Mother Gaia Mayor has done all of that and more. Constitutional government includes none of the above.
What has happened to our government? Costume parades in honor of Mother Earth? This picture just about says it all. I can't help but wonder if there is an adult left in this country who can lead us out of the wilderness and into the land of reason again.
