Comment: This is one more example of what is at the heart of the “green” movement; higher taxation and attacks on capitalism. Make no mistake about this is pure socialism. Left unchecked the oligarchs will ruin this country, tear down our sovereignty, and destroy our business competition, all the while the size of government and their power continues to grow. The 50 States must act and regain the power it lost through the 17th Amendment and stop these oligarchs from further impairment to our nation.
