              What is Sustainable Development? (Formally called Agenda 21)

Sustainable Development is the action plan being used across America and around the world to implement the United Nations’ Agenda 21 program.  Although the movement’s roots are much older, the United Nations, at its 1992 Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro, publicly launched the global movement known as Agenda 21.

According to its authors, the objective of sustainable development is to integrate economic, social and environmental policies in order to achieve reduced consumption, social equity, and the preservation and restoration of biodiversity.  “Sustainablists” insist that every societal decision be based on environmental impact, focusing on three components; global land use, global education, and global population control and reduction.

In summary, Sustainable Development seeks:
1. The step by step abolition of private property, primarily through the implementation of the Wildlands Project and
Smart Growth.
2. Education of youth to prepare them for global citizenship.
3. Control and ultimate reduction of human population.

A couple of revealing quotes…

“Land…cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore contributes to social injustice.” From the report from the 1976 UN’s Habitat I Conference.

“Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective.” Harvey Ruvin, Vice Chairman, ICLEI.

Just Who Are These TEA PARTY Extremists?

After reading the ranting and complete distortions of Gerald Largen these past two weeks with his false attacks and lies about the Tea Party, I decided to respond with the real truth.

My name is Gary Johnston and I am co-chairman of the Roane County Tea Party. I was one of three people who started this organization some two and a half years ago. I am a 67 year old retired police officer from a northern industrial city and I retired from a management position within the department. I also successfully put together three separate small businesses during this same period. I do not vote along party lines but look at each candidate. That is why I voted for Phil Bredesen, a Democrat, twice for governor of Tennessee.

I resent Mr Largen calling me or any other Tea Party person a terrorist. Websters dictionary defines terrorism as: 1. the use of terror and violence to intimidate, subjugate, etc, especially as a political policy. 2. a state of intimidation, etc, produced by terror. Websters defines “terrorize” as 1. to fill with terror, terrify. 2. to coerce, maintain power, etc, by inducing terror. I submit to the citizens that this is exactly the tactics used by our President and members of Congress when they threatened to stop payment of Social Security, Medicare and Armed Services payments and continuously told the citizens that Armageddon would follow if we defaulted on our loans, while knowing full well that there was sufficient money to cover our required expenses. These politicians need to be removed from Washington D.C. and put in jail.

Most of the people attending our Tea Party meetings are in their fifties and beyond. They are Black, White and Hispanic Americans, mostly from professional backgrounds. They are Republicans, Democrats, Independents and they all share common beliefs. They believe in less government, low taxes, less regulation and they are conservative in nature. They are educated, informed and deeply engaged in what is happening to our Country. They are also very supportive of the Tea Party after they discover that their beliefs are the same as the Tea Party's beliefs.

The mainstream Media and the corrupt politicians are very much afraid of the Tea Party because there is no one central figure or group of people to attack. We are a grassroots movement of ordinary citizens who want absolutely nothing from the Government or the Politicians, which leaves them with no meaningful way to control us. The only thing they can do is place a label on us and repeat it over and over again in the hope that the uninformed will believe them rather than checking out who we really are.

We invite anyone interested in actually making an informed decision to attend our meetings on the first and third Thursdays of each month at 7.00 PM at the Kingston Community Center, 201 Patton Ferry Rd, Kingston. For more information go to or contact Gary Johnston at 865-717-1073.
