This letter is WARNING to all those who support the Boulder County Land Use Comprehensive Plan, and policies – to those that believe it’s a legitimate use of Governmental power to control private rural farmland, the methods of its use, the types of produce grown, the species of animals raised, the subsidizing of selected products and rents, and the commandeering of private property rights by which to accomplish these, all under the guise of “protecting the environment.”
The warning is simply this – YOUR PROPERTY RIGHTS ARE NEXT – and don’t limit
your thinking of “property rights” to my farm; think all “resources” that you, your business or employer uses.
The United Nation’s Agenda 21, and its implementing organization ICLEI, of which Boulder is a current paying member, clearly state their objectives of controlling and allocating all “resources” by government decree – the purest form of Socialism. These resources include all land, water, mineral, energy, and agricultural products. Imagine the shelves at Safeway being emptied of all food that the UN thinks is not “appropriate, fair, sustainable, or equitable”. Imagine local farmers being told what type of wheat, corn, or sugar beets they can or cannot grow.
Boulder County already dictates house size limits – what’s stopping them from limiting the size of your next car, tractor, TV, anything – nothing but your voice and your vote.
Even if you’re pleased that Boulder County is commandeering my property rights, be advised that by supporting these policies, or by apathy toward them, you’ve abdicated your own rights.
Read for yourself Agenda 21 (www.un.org/esa/dsd/agenda21/ ) and ICLEI (www.iclei.org/) plans for Socialist controls on all resources. After all, you’re paying for Boulder’s ICLEI membership.
