Unbelievable as it might be, we're on the verge of congressional passage of a radical and unconstitutional cap-and-trade energy tax that would cost thousands of dollars per household per year, cripple the production and use of carbon-based energy, and destroy our economy. All this for the purpose of reducing man-made global warming, a completely unproven theory. See "Treasury Memo Resets Cap and Trade Energy Tax Debate (http://www.jbs.org/freedom-campaign/5385-treasury-memo-resets-cap-and-trade-energy-tax-debate)" for more information.

What's needed is a national firestorm of opposition such as we witnessed in the health care town halls in August. And we need it now. Already Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) is preparing for legislative hearings on a Senate cap and trade bill in early October. A vote in the full Senate could happen as early as late October, but more likely in November or December.

We also still have a chance to stop cap and trade in the House, because even though the House narrowly passed its version of cap and trade back in June, if the Senate passes a bill, then the House and Senate will need to vote on a compromise version.

Click here to send an email (http://www.votervoice.net/Core.aspx?AID=972&Screen=alert&IssueId=18625) in strong opposition to cap-and-trade legislation to your senators and representative. But don't stop there. Be sure to contact others in your sphere of influence. Apply pressure to your senators and representatives through personal visits, phone calls, letters to the editor, and participation in appropriate rallies and other events.

The "Cap and Trade (http://www.thenewamerican.com/index.php/tech-mainmenu-30/environment/1896-cap-and-trade)" cover article in the September 28 issue of The New American magazine makes an excellent educational tool for convincing your friends and associates to actively oppose cap and trade legislation. It also provides many talking points for letters to the editor and radio talk shows.

We must preserve our freedom and prosperity by bringing Congress back under the discipline of the Constitution!
