    Does your ability to innovate get adversely impacted when there is a speed limit on a road? Do you prefer anarchy?

    That's immaterial and superfluous and another shallow, straw man argument.

    There is No WAY in HELL, that any Americans should allow THE UN to dictate to THE UNITED STATES how we live.

    This is where ALL Democrat Policy comes from...whether you are talking about The Green New Scam.....to Disarmament......to a Borderless Global Society......to a One World Currency....To Population Relocation.....and Population Control....and the abolishment of Hydrocarbon Fuels.

    Agenda 2030 is a scam and so is it's offspring, The Green New Scam. There is a reason Democrats lie to us and tell us we only have 11 years to save The Planet. That is 2030. Before that, it was 2021, but then Trump got elected and smashed Agenda 21 to bits. The UN repackaged Agenda 21 as Agenda 2030 and are taking another run at Global Governance which they want in place by 2030.
