In Your Opinion: Town plan will take away our rights

The town of Laurens is in the process of presenting a new comprehensive plan to the town board.

This plan consists of approximately 169 pages. It is totally anti-rights.

The plan is also pre-zoning. Laurens already has a land use ordinance and Otsego County regulations. Do we need to accept more regulations, restrictions, controls and loss of rights?

Our rights and freedoms, which we have enjoyed and have taken for granted, are being threatened.

To name a few: Freedom of speech, privacy, health care, religion, education, water, timber, safety, security, energy, food supply, right to bear arms, choices, right to defend ourselves, property rights, hopes and dreams.

We are being surrounded with Agenda 21 control. What is it? I am often asked. It is a global attempt to impose United Nations environmental regulations, aimed at controlling our local city, town and lives, through the International Council for Local Environmental Initiations, created in 1991. (Sustainable Development)

“Agenda” meaning plan; “21” meaning the 21st century. We are losing our rights and freedoms to Agenda 21 control. And we are allowing it, through ignorance and denial.

Check it out for yourself. And while you are checking Agenda 21, don’t forget to check the Agenda 21 keyword list, often used when discussing Agenda 21 related initiatives. The list includes comprehensive planning, Common Core, greenhouse gas emissions, global warming, grants, land-use policies and New World Order. Actually, there are about 110 words on the list connected to Agenda 21. 

We need to stop the destruction and the loss of our freedom.
