The Need To Repeal The Comprehensive Enabling Act Of 1994 Of South Carolina

_______________________________________


I am the Vice President of the Conservatives of the Upstate.

Our group has been fighting the Pickens County Comprehensive Plan 2030. We are presently
working on trying to get our SC legislatures to repeal the Comprehensive Planing Enabling Act of 1994 as contained in the SC Code of Laws Title 6 Chapter 29 Article 1 as it violates the Constitution.

Thank you for your time.

THE NEED TO REPEAL THE COMPREHENSIVE ENABLING ACT OF 1994 OF SC

The South Carolina Comprehensive Enabling Act of 1994 is a direct result of the President’s council on Sustainable Development, set up by an executive order of Bill Clinton in 1993. This council is comprised of un-elected officials who are charged with enabling, “…bold new approaches to achieve economic, environmental, and equity goals.” Mr. Clinton bypassed Congressional approval for this act in a effort to bring the United States into compliance with the 1992 United Nations “Earth Summit” Agenda 21. The United Nations has stated directly in the Human Settlement Conference in 1976 that, “Land…cannot be treated as an ordinary asset controlled by the individual and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice…”

The Comprehensive Enabling Act did not evolve from private landowners or local communities. The Act evolved by an international group of stakeholders who have decided they know how individuals in the South Carolina should live, work, and play. Specifically, the Comprehensive Enabling Act is a top-down international governmental control mechanism that has adversely influenced and affected our sovereign state of South Carolina and is a direct violation of our Constitution and violates the 5th Amendment.
In the past, comprehensive planning in South Carolina was developed by individual communities as a result of the free market and according to the desires of the local community. Now, big government has greater control of the use of your land and the law of supply and demand has been effectively eliminated. Unelected special interest groups such as Upstate Forever and Ten at the Top, just to name a few, help influence the development plans, where development should occur, and where it should not. The local planning commissioners listen to these “stakeholders” and a process develops whereby some private property is devalued while the value of other properties is inflated due to subjective lines placed on a map according to the land development plans.

Anyone who reads the thousands of comprehensive plans around the United States will find similar visions and goals. This is no accident. These stakeholders ultimately bring the destruction of personal property rights and the right to accumulate wealth through property ownership.

The goals of preserving resources, limiting consumption and reducing use of energy are all positive goals every can agree upon; however, our Constitution guarantees a Republic and not a Socialistic form of government. The United Nations initiated Comprehensive Enabling Act of 1994 as a covert revolution to transform our great country from the free enterprise system to socialism. International government is attempting to control behaviors by judging mankind into a new world order without the individual being consciously aware that Constitutional freedoms are being assaulted. If we do not repeal the Comprehensive Enabling Act of 1994 we will one day wake up and wonder what happened to our God given right of life, liberty, nad the pursuit of happiness

Thank you all for attending last night's meeting ... here is the resolution that David read last night concerning the repeal of The Comprehensive Plan.

RESOLUTION
A Resolution calling for the Repeal of the Comprehensive Planning Enabling Act of 1994 as contained in the South Carolina Code of Laws – Title 6, Chapter 29, Article 1
(Hereafter referred to as the Enabling Act of 1994)

WHEREAS, the Enabling Act of 1994 had its foundational beginning with Agenda 21, the comprehensive international policy declaration on sustainable development produced by the United Nations; and

WHEREAS, in 1993, former President William Jefferson Clinton bypassed the United States Congress in signing Executive Order 12852 establishing the President’s Council on Sustainable Development which became the vehicle for advancing Agenda 21 in the United States; and

WHEREAS, in only one year after the signing of Executive Order 12852, the Enabling Act of 1994 was codified into South Carolina law, thus becoming the vehicle for advancing Agenda 21 at the state level; and

WHEREAS, due to the Enabling Act of 1994, South Carolina counties and comprehensive planning commissions are now participants in advancing Agenda 21 at the local level; and

WHEREAS, non-governmental entities with substantial resources beyond the scope of the average South Carolina citizen are promoting sustainable development; and

WHEREAS, the vast majority of South Carolinians are unaware of the overreaching consequences that are being foisted upon them by the advocates for Agenda 21 style sustainable development; and

WHEREAS, the Enabling Act is a blatantly unconstitutional intrusion into citizens’ unalienable rights to private property as expressed in the Fifth Amendment; and

WHEREAS, we should be cognizant of the fact that the United States is a sovereign nation, and should not be in subjection to a United Nations declaration; that South Carolina is a sovereign state and should not be subjugated by an unconstitutional executive order; and that the people of South Carolina counties are better suited to deal with the variables, contingencies, and issues within their own borders as free men and God fearing stewards.

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED, that we the people of Pickens County and this state strongly urge those who we have entrusted as our representatives in Columbia to exercise prudent fiduciary responsibility by moving to repeal the Enabling Act of 1994 forthwith.

Done this ____ day of ____________ in the 2011th year of our Lord and the 234th year of our republic and submitted by the __________________ Precinct to be considered and adopted by the ______________ County Republican and South Carolina Republican Conventions.
