Conservative philosophy is America's only hope

On May 22, the Times reported that our energy rates will increase at least 17 percent by 2020, thanks to President Barack Obama's policies. So where's the outcry?

Are we to be led like sheep into Obama's new "transformed" American welfare state, with a crippled working class and thousands of middle-class utility workers added to the unemployment dole?

However, we were warned: Obama openly stated in January 2008 (San Francisco Chronicle interview on YouTube) that his energy policies would cause electricity rates to "skyrocket" and would bankrupt coal plants. At least the guy told the truth once.

Beware: This is the vision of the progressive "climate-change" Democratic Party; elect more of them — including Madame Clinton — and our nation's economic decline is guaranteed.

You may not agree with every conservative's viewpoint, but their traditional, constitutional philosophy is America's only hope.
