U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has it all planned out. By remaking the U.S. economy and eliminating all U.S. carbon emissions, her “Green New Deal” is the liberal’s utopian solution to global warming. Even though global warming has been proven highly unscientific by experts, H. Res. 109 already has 67 co-sponsors in the House. Before we know it, this Green New Deal could bring about the ultimate destruction of America!
Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore
labelled it as the “most ridiculous scenario” and a “recipe for mass suicide” because if it was actually implemented Americans could literally starve to death and if it was implemented globally, it would "end up killing almost everyone on the planet." Characterizing humans as the enemies of the earth, promoters of the deal are also willing to “pay people who are unwilling to work.” It doesn’t get any more clearly socialistic than that. It also promises “high-quality health care, housing, economic security, and clean air, clean water, healthy food, and nature to all.”
For those who actually care about the environment, the way to keep it flourishing is the free market, private property, prosperity, and responsible citizens. Not more government regulations. Speaking at the “FreedomTalk” conference, Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) executive director Craig Rucker shared:
Poor nations do not have the resources to protect the environment. And socialist-ruled nations have the worst environmental track-records of all. Meanwhile, freer and wealthier nations such as the United States, Canada, and Western Europe have remarkably clean environments.
Turns out the Green New Deal is more about socialism than it is about saving the environment. New American writer Selwyn Duke
explains how the entire deal is void of logic:
Clear goals don’t necessarily denote clear thinking. Comically tragic here is that this whole scheme is based upon the unscientific global-warming thesis, whose adherents’ computer model predictions have failed time and again. Yet the alarmists still insist that, this time, they surely must be right.
Mr. Duke follows it up correctly with “they’re ignorant of most everything – except how to gain power.” If CO2 emissions were gone, it would be absolutely catastrophic! Plus, just take a look at all the constitutional precedents the Green New Deal would break. Article I Section 8 of the Constitution doesn’t give Congress the ability to distribute wealth, regulate the environment, or dictate science.
So what can be done? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Democrat posse need to be reminded of their oath they took to support the Constitution. Through Article VI of the U.S. Constitution we can rein in big government and drain the swamp! Our newest video, The Founders Brilliant Solution to Government
showcases how we can dismantle the Deep State. Make sure to watch and learn how to hold local, state, and federal officials accountable to their oath of office.
