Renovating the World, One Democrat at a Time -How to Save the World, One Democrat at a Time?

  • Ban affordable energy. GND calls for the elimination of all fossil fuel energy production, the lifeblood of American industry and life, which includes not only all oil but also natural gas — one of the cheapest sources of American energy, and one of the reasons the United States has been able to lead the world in carbon-emissions reduction.
  • Eliminate nuclear energy. The GND also calls for eliminating all nuclear power, one of the only productive and somewhat affordable “clean” energy sources available to us, in 11 years. This move would purge around 20 percent of American energy generation so you can rely on intermittent wind for your energy needs.
  • Eliminate 99 percent of cars. To be fair, under the GND, everyone will need to retrofit their cars with Flintstones-style foot holes or pedals for cycling. The authors state that the GND would like to replace every “combustion-engine vehicle” — trucks, airplanes, boats, and 99 percent of cars — within ten years. Charging stations for electric vehicles will be built “everywhere,” though how power plants will provide the energy needed to charge them is a mystery.
  • Gut and rebuild every building in America. Markey and Cortez want to “retrofit every building in America” with “state of the art energy efficiency.” I repeat, “every building in America.” That includes every home, factory, and apartment building, which will all need, for starters, to have their entire working heating and cooling systems ripped out and replaced with…well, with whatever technology Democrats are going invent in their committee hearings, I guess.
  • Eliminate air travel. GND calls for building out “highspeed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary.” Good luck Hawaii! California’s high-speed boondoggle is already in $100 billion dollars of debt, and looks to be one of the state’s biggest fiscal disasters ever. Amtrak runs billions of dollars in the red (though, as we’ll see, trains that run on fossil fuels will also be phased out). Imagine growing that business model out to every state in America?
  • A government-guaranteed job. The bill promises the United States government will provide every single American with a job that includes a “family-sustaining wage, family and medical leave, vacations, and a pension.” You can imagine that those left in the private sector would be funding these through some unspecified “massive” taxation. On the bright side, when you’re foraging for food, your savings will be worthless.
  • Free education for life. GND promises free college or trade schools for every American.
  • A salubrious diet. The GND promises the government will provide “healthy food” to every American (because there are no beans or lettuce in your local supermarket, I guess).
  • A house. The GND promises that the government will provide, “safe, affordable, adequate housing” for every American citizen. I call dibs on an affordable Adams Morgan townhouse. Thank you, Ocasio-Cortez.
  • Free money. The GND aims to provide, and I am not making this up, “economic security” for all who are “unable or unwilling” to work. Just to reiterate: if you’re unwilling to work, the rest of us will have your back.
  • Bonus insanity: Ban meat. Ocasio-Cortez admits that we can’t get zero emissions in 10 years “because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.” The only way to get rid of farting cows is to get rid of beef.

Think Hard About Your Vote in 2020 . . .

The democrats are already busy flexing their political muscles on two important aspects of our country. The one Pelosi seems very adamant about is making sure that tax payers share the burden of a voluntary ‘medical procedure’ . . . the painful murder of babies in the womb. No matter what each individual feels about abortion, she wants to make sure taxes from our hard-earned incomes go towards, basically, murder. And, the second major topic of the new regime is the government aid still pouring in for people who came to our country illegally. Again, Pelosi and her ilk need and take that from the taxpayers. California talks about free medical for everyone including non-citizens. Did they replant the burned down forests of last year’s horrible fires (again, a good part of which is government’s fault) with sturdy money trees to cover this? Mathematically, this isn’t good math.

Looking over all the happy prospects put forth from the democrats, I don’t see any breaks for the taxpayers. I don’t see any freedom of choice as to where our money goes. And to continue the misery they seem to want to spread, they are adamantly against protecting our border and welcoming in untold numbers of people not properly vetted, many of which have already been proven to be in gangs, felons, and murders. Why does Pelosi, etc., give these people free run of our country while we have to think about security for our homes, protecting ourselves, and dealing with a multitude of other crimes minor and major. A young policeman was recently murdered in cold blood leaving behind a wife and young child. I just read that Facebook closed down a site who labeled the killer as an illegal . . . which he is. Why is it that the politicians that tout socialism and share and share alike have unimaginable stockpiles of ready cash, huge homes, and walls around their mansions?
