Please use the comments section below to give us your opinion, and please use your real name. Thank you!

WHEREAS, the Enabling Act of 1994 had its beginnings with Agenda 21 Declaration produced by the United Nations, was then introduced at the federal level by Executive Order 12852 signed by President Clinton, was codified into South Carolina law in 1994, and is now being carried out at the local level by counties and comprehensive planning commissions; 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.
