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.”
