I'm not sure who to give the credit to for this but it is awesome!


If I wanted America to fail…

To Follow not lead; to Suffer not prosper; to Despair not dream…

I’d start with energy.

I’d cut off America’s supply of cheap abundant energy. I couldn’t take it by force. So, I’d make Americans feel guilty about using the energy that heats their homes, fuels their cars, runs their businesses and powers their economy.

I’d make cheap energy expensive, so that expensive energy would seem cheap.

I would empower unelected bureaucrats to all but outlaw Americas most abundant sources of energy. And after banning it’s use in America, I’d make it illegal for American companies to ship it overseas.

If I wanted America to fail…

I’d use their schools to teach one generation of Americans that their factories and their cars will cause a new ice age, and I’d muster a straight face so I could teach the next generation that they’re causing global warming.

When it’s cold out, I’d call it climate change instead.

I’d imply that American cities and factories could run on wind power and wishes. I’d teach children to ignore the hypocrisy of condemning logging, mining and farming, while having roofs over their heads, heat in their homes and food on their tables. I would never teach children that the free market is the only force in human history to uplift the poor, establish the middle class and create lasting prosperity.

Instead I’d demonize prosperity it’s self, so they will not miss what they will never have.

If I wanted America to fail…

I’d create countless new regulations and seldom cancel old ones. They would be so complicated the only bureaucrats, lawyers and lobbyists could understand them. That way small business with big ideas wouldn’t stand a chance,  then I wouldn’t have to worry about another Thomas Edison, Henry Ford or Steve Jobs.

I would ridicule as “Flat Earthers” those that urge them to lower energy costs by increasing supply. And when the evangelists of common sense try to remind people about the laws of supply and demand, I’d enlist a sympathetic media to drown them out.

If I wanted America to fail…

I’d empower unaccountable bureaucracies seated in a distant capital to bully American out of their dreams and their property rights. I’d send federal agents to raid guitar factories for using the wrong kind of wood. I’d force home owners to tear down their own homes, built on their own land.

I’d make it almost impossible for farmers to farm, miners to mine and builders to build.

Because I don’t believe in the free markets, I’d invent false ones. I’d devise fictitious products like carbon credits and trade them in imaginary markets. I’d convince people that this would create jobs and be good for the economy.

If I wanted America to fail…

For every concern I’d invent a crisis; and for every crisis I’d invent the cause. Like shutting down entire industries and killing tens of thousands of jobs, in the name of saving spotted owls. And when everyone learned the stunning irony that the owls were the victims of their larger cousins, and not people, it would already be decades too late.

If I wanted America to fail…

I’d make it easier to stop commerce than to start it, easier to kill jobs than to create them, more fashionable to invent success than to seek it.

When Industries seek to create jobs I’d file law suites to stop them and then I’d make taxpayers pay for my lawyers.

If I wanted America to fail…

I would transform the environmental agenda from a document off conservation into an economic suicide pact. I would concede entire industries to our economic rivals by imposing regulations that cost trillions. I would celebrate those that preach environmental austerity in public, while indulging a lavish lifestyle in private.

I’d convince Americans that Europe has it right and America has it wrong.

If I wanted America to fail…

I would prey on the goodness and decency of ordinary Americans.

I would only need to convince them… that all of this is for the greater good.

If I wanted America to fail…

I suppose I wouldn’t change a thing.

Thank you ladies, I wish I had written this. I also added the link to the youtube video which is very powerful.

So powerful it led me to transcribe it for those who have never seen it or seen the video.

If you haven't watched it I highly recommend it.

It's working.

Very good editorial. Not all that difficult to convince the left -- their work is almost complete.
