    Opposition to Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development

    Mr. Plusquellic:
    As an American citizen, I am adamantly opposed to the policies of the UN’s Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development for the following reasons.

    * Sustainable Development is contrary to U.S. policy of limited government and local rule. It is anti private property, anti free enterprise and anti personal freedom. It is being promoted by non-governmental organizations as a radical political agenda. It is being enforced by international edict - not by American Constitutional rule of law.
    * Sustainable Development will raise energy taxes and cost of living expenses while reducing America’s standard of living by forcing cutbacks in energy and water use. It will dictate travel choices, mandate eating decisions, and even direct career decisions. Sustainable development is an invasion of every aspect of the personal lives of all Americans, including reproductive rights, resulting in a wrenching transformation of our way of life and of missing reproductive rights.
    * Sustainable Development policies such as “smart growth” and the use of eminent domain, are causing Americans pain and misery and these “top-down” control policies are being implemented by non-elected policy boards and planning commissions. As a result, Americans are losing control of their constitutional protections of property and free choice and constitutional form and destroyed.
    * The policies of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development are a disaster to the American economy and our way of life. Americans need more than 26 gallons of water per day. There is no reason to reduce energy consumption by 30%. Government, at any level, has no right to dictate personal decisions like the food we eat or the careers we chose. Sustainable Development is contrary to every principle of personal freedom that built this nation.

    For these reasons, I, the undersigned American citizen, demand that the U.S. Conference of Mayors withdraw its support of this disastrous international policy called Sustainable Development (as outlined in the United Nations Agenda 21 document) and support local decisions made by the citizens in individual communities, as our nation was established and as the mayors you represent were elected to do.
