John Edwards is running for President. He embraces the Democrat Party’s agenda including, you would expect, the concern about “global warming”.
But if it’s going to take a cutback in someone’s lifestyle to fight “global warming” it sure as hell isn’t going to be his.
RALEIGH — Presidential candidate John Edwards and his family recently moved into what county tax officials say is the most valuable home in Orange County. The house, which includes a recreational building attached to the main living quarters, also is probably the largest in the county.
“The Edwardses’ residential property will likely have the highest tax value in the county,” Orange County Tax Assessor John Smith told Carolina Journal. He estimated that the tax value will exceed $6 million when the facility is completed.
The rambling structure sits in the middle of a 102-acre estate on Old Greensboro Road west of Chapel Hill. The heavily wooded site and winding driveway ensure that the home is not visible from the road. “No Trespassing” signs discourage passersby from venturing past the gate.
This is typical of what we can expect from the people who are urging us to fight “global warming” by cutting back in our transportation and heating. Those are good things and to be encouraged. But they are things for you to do, not those who worry in our behalf. Reducing their “carbon footprint” to no more than what they expect from others is just not in the plan. They preach sacrifice to save the earth but the way it works is they preach, you sacrifice.
