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.
RESOLUTIONA 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.
