Letter to Congressman Larsen

Dear Congressman Larsen,

When I attended your town hall meeting in Ferndale, you said that you made most of your decisions based on your personal principles, and not so much on voter input, relying instead on the fact that if we don't like your decisions, we can vote you out of office in the next election.

While that is true to a degree, it still allows a lot of votes in congress to occur against our wishes. Bills, once passed, that cannot be easily removed later. It is very difficult to regain liberty once it is lost.

With that in mind, please consider my most emphatic opposition to the Waxman-Markey Cap & Trade bill that is being stampeded through congress this week. This bill represents the largest tax increase and government power grab in our history. If it becomes law, the cost of absolutely everything will go up, and the federal government will gain control of practically every aspect of production and consumption in this country. A statist would like that, but a classical liberal definitely would not. Please listen to the voters, and reject this bill.

Karl Uppiano
