We are the people of Howard County. This is our backyard. We are the voters! Our government has no right to be siding with a company from Germany!
I cannot even begin to tell you how distressing this has been for all of us who live here. My fervent prayer to God above today is that there will be a final resolution and an end to this planned wind farm.
Can you honestly tell me that if we were able to vote on this today there would be more people in eastern Howard County for this than against this? We are the ones living here. For many of us, it is our grandparents and great-grandparents who intrusted this land to us. These families are farmers who have worked this very ground for many, many years! They are the only ones whose concerns should matter.
My husband also opposes this, saying it is some of the very best farmland in Howard County and state. And even though it may not seem like a lot, it is a crime to give valuable farmland over to be used for wind turbines that do not serve the community.
Please stop this completely, once and for all!
Constitution rests authority on us all
There is a misconception that our secular and Enlightenment-based Constitution is founded on the Bible or the Ten Commandments. OK, what are the first commandments? They include having no other gods or no graven images.
If any of those commandments were enshrined into law, they would be a violation of the Establishment and Free Exercise clauses of the First Amendment.
Israel in pre-modern times was a theocracy. The king and his priests were all-powerful and they supposedly spoke for a god. The Founding Fathers rested the authority of our nation on us, “we the people.” No mention of a God, religion or Christianity.
