Green New Deal is a Socialist Fairy Tale

Green New Deal is a Socialist Fairy Tale

by Shari Dovale

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) unveiled her Green New Deal (GND) this week with all the hype we have come to expect from the Dems new Social Media Darling. However, it was met with so much ridicule that Ocasio-Cortez had to delete it from her government website almost immediately and make revisions.

Let’s take a look at the final resolution, and the accompanying FAQ.

To begin with, let’s reinforce that this is only a resolution. It is not a bill, and even if passed, it will not implement any new programs by itself. It can only make Congress consider what their agenda could be in the coming terms.

Those that vote for it would appear to be confirmed Socialists. That is a good point for this document: a litmus test for the elected in Washington DC. She claims that “92 percent of Democrats and 64 percent of Republicans support the Green New Deal.”

The GND covers more than climate change. It covers every Socialist ideal since the Communist Manifesto. It really is just an updated version of that same document.

It starts out with scare tactics, like Climate Change is the cause of every world problem, and the United States leads these degenerate nations.

They are coming for your bacon and steaks!

They want to change how the country produces food, and get away from “Farting Cows”. Yes, sadly this is a direct statement from the documents. It would seem they want to turn the country vegan, or at least vegetarian. What about Broccoli and pickles? If it causes gas in people, would she outlaw those as well, or just the people that eat them?

They want to plant new forests, yet complain about the existing forests, and the wildfires. They do not mention logging, grazing or otherwise managing the forests to reduce the wildfires. So, let’s see…. Burn the old forests and plant new ones. That should work.

They do not like airplanes, so they want to get rid of them, replacing them with high speed rail. The idea of a train across the ocean to Hawaii is not very enticing. Maybe we should just sell Hawaii to pay for this deal, and not worry about ocean trains at all?

They would also like to tear down and rebuild every single building in the country. They assume that no building currently meets their standards. The best way to accomplish this is probably building massive high-rise apartment buildings in each city to house the population. Government owned, of course, and cheaper than individual homes. This also takes care of that pesky “private property” issue as well.

Continuing the talk on more than just weather… They have included government health care, government jobs, and even a guarantee of money to those that are unwilling to work.

Yes, you read that correctly. “Economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.” This is one of their stated goals. Why do we need guaranteed jobs if we don’t need to work?

Who will pay for this paradise?

But how to pay for all this Utopia? “The level of investment required is massive,” she admits. “Even if every billionaire and company came together and were willing to pour all the resources at their disposal into this investment, the aggregate value of the investments they could make would not be sufficient.”

The Boston University graduate, with a degree in economics, says we can just print more money. After all, we have done it before, right? I think they did that in Venezuela recently, and we can see how well it is working out for them.

But that is enough about money. AOC says, “At the end of the day, this is an investment in our economy that should grow our wealth as a nation, so the question isn’t how will we pay for it, but what will we do with our new shared prosperity.”

4 Comments on Green New Deal is a Socialist Fairy Tale

  1. There is no safety in a Republic if a person with the politics of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can be voted into office; I don’t blame her at all…a person is what they is…and it would be boring world if there were not some, how shall we say, people with a different view on life; but to have a majority of people in a jurisdiction VOTE that nutty person into office…that is irredeemable. That means at some point before marking their ballot their inner voice said, “Hmm, that makes sense…let’s vote for her.”

  2. “There is no safety in a Republic if…”

    It (meaning U.S.A. Inc.) is not a Republic, it has not been a republic since 1789. In a Despotic Nation State. In a despotic nation state those best able to lie, cheat, steal, extort, enslave, are best able to “rise” to the “top” of that type of criminal cesspool.

    If it were a republic, meaning something of, for, and by the public, then representatives (jurors) could vote to have the liars, cheats, stealers, extortors, and those who enslave: out of power. That process of clearing the swamp would work aggressively, and work on the principle that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

    “It is not merely the number of impeachments, that are to be expected to make public officers honest and attentive in their business. A general opinion must pervade the community, that the house, the body to impeach them for misconduct, is disinterested, and ever watchful for the public good; and that the judges who shall try impeachments, will not feel a shadow of biass. Under such circumstances, men will not dare transgress, who, not deterred by such accusers and judges, would repeatedly misbehave. We have already suffered many and extensive evils, owing to the defects of the confederation, in not providing against the misconduct of public officers. When we expect the law to be punctually executed, not one man in ten thousand will disobey it: it is the probable chance of escaping punishment that induces men to transgress. It is one important mean to make the government just and honest, rigidly and constantly to hold, before the eyes of those who execute it, punishment, and dismission from office, for misconduct. These are principles no candid man, who has just ideas of the essential features of a free government, will controvert. They are, to be sure, at this period, called visionary, speculative and anti-governmental—but in the true stile of courtiers, selfish politicians, and flatterers of despotism—discerning republican men of both parties see their value. They are said to be of no value, by empty boasting advocates for the constitution, who, by their weakness and conduct, in fact, injure its cause much more than most of its opponents.”

  3. Two statements from Ms Cortez’ manifesto jump out at me….”The Govt is best placed to be the prime driver”….and also…”A National mobilization of our economy”…in regard to the first statement, you could ask who would be “Driven” by this newly empowered government ? Laws give the government power, and the more laws there are, the more power it has..in Cortez green scenario, even using your wood stove would bring down the wrath of Govt agents……secondly is “A national mobilization of our economy”…..We can drop the word “Mobilization” from this couplet, and read ” A nationalization of our economy” For, even if industry and business should remain privately owned, they would be held hostage to draconian regulation, and only operate at the whim of govt agents. And who would implement and enforce this Brave Green World ? Why, those wonderful Fed Agencies like the ones we’ve had such a grand time with these last few years !NO ! I have to take a quote from Reagan and say that ” To err is human, but it takes the Govt to really screw things up” !

  4. “A nationalization of our economy”

    All this talk as if the stolen power is in any way legitimate, and the battle is to stab the other criminal party in the back before having those in that party stab “our” party in the back. What a load of BS (Fake News).

    “For, even if industry and business should remain privately owned, they would be held hostage to draconian regulation, and only operate at the whim of govt agents.”

    How about an example of being held hostage by so-called “govt agents”?

    “But Hamilton wanted to go farther than debt assumption. He believed a funded national debt would assist in establishing public credit. By funding national debt, Hamilton envisioned the Congress setting aside a portion of tax revenues to pay each year’s interest without an annual appropriation. Redemption of the principal would be left to the government’s discretion. At the time Hamilton gave his Report on Public Credit, the national debt was $80 million. Though such a large figure shocked many Republicans who saw debt as a menace to be avoided, Hamilton perceived debt’s benefits. “In countries in which the national debt is properly funded, and the object of established confidence,” explained Hamilton, “it assumes most of the purposes of money.” Federal stock would be issued in exchange for state and national debt certificates, with interest on the stock running about 4.5 percent. To Republicans the debt proposals were heresy. The farmers and planters of the South, who were predominantly Republican, owed enormous sums to British creditors and thus had firsthand knowledge of the misery wrought by debt. Debt, as Hamilton himself noted, must be paid or credit is ruined. High levels of taxation, Republicans prognosticated, would be necessary just to pay the interest on the perpetual debt. Believing that this tax burden would fall on the yeoman farmers and eventually rise to European levels, Republicans opposed Hamilton’s debt program.

    “To help pay the interest on the debt, Hamilton convinced the Congress to pass an excise on whiskey. In Federalist N. 12, Hamilton noted that because “[t]he genius of the people will ill brook the inquisitive and peremptory spirit of excise law,” such taxes would be little used by the national government. In power, the Secretary of the Treasury soon changed his mind and the tax on the production of whiskey rankled Americans living on the frontier. Cash was scarce in the West and the Frontiersmen used whiskey as an item of barter.”

    Criminals create a despotic nation-state, doing so by telling lies and making threats, and then once the criminals are firmly in power they reveal their true colors.

    Those who need to make ends meet produce a competitive form of money, they do so because the better money (gold) was driven out by the criminal infusion of counterfeit money (promises to pay that are lies documented on the very paper printed by the criminal frauds), and what does the so-called government do when people rebel against taxation without representation?

    The draconian despot on top of the newly created pyramid scheme abuses the despotic office of President of the corporation by conscripting (enslaving) a national army of tax collectors to invade a former independent state and crush that spirit of liberty out of those slaves in that state. Pay or suffer, and pay without question.

    That is an example of this:

    “For, even if industry and business should remain privately owned, they would be held hostage to draconian regulation, and only operate at the whim of govt agents.”

    Farmers were run out of business by draconian regulations, including excise taxes payable in gold, and including the subsidization of a criminal labor force, paid for by the farmers whose capacity to compete with slave labor was already compromised by the draconian regulations that refused to defend the slaves, and then the farmers had to pay the draconian slave masters for the costs spent by the draconian Nation-State in enforcing slavery. Dig your own grave, and don’t question the order to do so.

    “The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.”

    Counterfeiting law is not news, it is the norm since 1789.
