As 2018 winds down to a close, Democrats prepare to take over control of the House of Representatives. Typically the handover of power from one party to another is simple and goes virtually unnoticed. However, as Republicans prepare to turn over power to the Democrats, one overwhelming theme has emerged, and that theme involves the shift from capitalism to socialism! Some may claim that the theme is their call for the impeachment of President Trump, but in truth, he is just a MAJOR OBSTACLE in their path to ‘transforming’ America’s magnificent economic and political structure into a socialist economic system, with a global communist government at its head. In fact, if they can remove President Trump, there will be nothing to stop them from fully implementing their ‘Global Communist System’ in not only America but throughout the world in its entirety.
Democrats have now revealed that in 2019, they are lining up behind devout communist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, as she pushes one of the largest expansions of government power and overreach in the history of the United States of America. In fact, they have announced that they are putting their support behind her “Green New Deal”, which was termed after the previous “New Deal” of the 1930s and “Great Society” of the 1960s major governmental expansions. The biggest difference is that this would become THE LARGEST GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER OF THE PRIVATE SECTOR IN HISTORY!
Incoming Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, (D-NY) pledged to voters that she would be a far-left outsider who would push her party towards the adoption of her former communist based party, the “Democratic Socialist of America ” policies, and she appears to be a woman of her word.
One of her first proposals involves the creation of a “Green New Deal” legislation, which would eliminate the United States’ fossil-fuel consumption, which would plunge the United States into the same chaos and violent riots that engulfed France after President Macron pushed the elimination of fossil fuels, and skyrocketed the cost of heating their homes, driving their cars, and the price of food and other goods throughout the nation. Regardless, a large number of Democrats in both Houses of Congress have lined up to support her proposal. In fact, likely soon to be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has announced that she will be forming a ‘Climate Change Committee’ when the Democrats take power in the coming week.
Although some of the details have not been revealed, The Atlantic revealed that when Ocasio-Cortez spoke at a town hall, she said…
“This is going to be the New Deal, the Great Society, the moon shot, the civil-rights movement of our generation.”
Unfortunately for the American People, this so-called “New Deal” will end up being a ‘Bad Deal, resulting in a failing economy, skyrocketing debt, and a ‘society of desperation’! In a nutshell, it will usher in the largest shift towards a socialist-style economy in history!
In Ocasio-Cortez’ draft resolution, it prioritizes its first goal to create a House select committee that would be responsible for Ocasio-Cortez proposals, and Nancy Pelosi has already announced the House Democrats planned the formation of a “Climate Crisis Committee”, which she said would be headed by Representative Kathy Castor (D-FL). The committee would be responsible for implementing the “Green New Deal” plan of action, and its socialist policies! Pelosi even went further and wrongfully invoked the name of God in her defense of the Democrats socialist takeover, when she said…
“The American people have demanded action to combat the climate crisis, which threatens our public health, our economy, our national security and the whole of God’s creation.”
The new committee would be responsible for ELIMINATING ALL FOSSIL FUEL POWERED ELECTRICITY, which encompasses the following…
closing every coal and natural gas power plant in the country by the year 2030!
Consequently, it would eliminate hundreds of thousands of jobs, cause the cost of food and goods to spiral upward due to transportation costs, and skyrocketing gasoline prices, home heating costs, and other fuel costs that would have a crushing effect on both the middle class and poorer Americans.
Ocasio-Cortez and Democrats are proposing to replace NEARLY ALL energy to be transferred over to primary wind and solar energy, which would cost the American people Trillions in transition expenses, not to mention the costs of losing fossil fuel energies. Also, similar to what Emmanuel Macron did in France, Ocasio-Cortez’ proposal implements a tax on carbon emissions, costing the average American a large portion of their annual income. In fact, in October of 2018, Capital Alpha Partners already did a study on a MUCH, MUCH, MUCH more conservative transition to renewable power sources, and found that in the first ten years, it would cost the American taxpayer almost $6 Trillion or more, and $12 Trillion by 2040. In addition 1/4 of the American GDP would be lost, and that is at a fraction of what Ocasio-Cortez’ plan would do to the American economy and taxpayer.
Other problems that the plan fails to note, is the fact that in addition to the trillions in wealth destroyed, it would fail to power homes, businesses, and our nation when the sun isn’t shining, or when the wind isn’t blowing. It doesn’t account for how Americans would keep their lights, heat, cooling, cooking, or other techs that require power to function. In a nutshell, at a cost of trillions to America and the American people, it would fail! After all, would hospitals just write-off patients who die due to unreliable energy sources?
Even more problematic is the fact that Ocasio-Cortez plan requires “requires…
“upgrading every residential and industrial building for state-of-the-art energy efficiency, comfort and safety”
And it also requires…
“eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from, repairing and improving transportation and other infrastructure, and upgrading water infrastructure.”
Including the elimination of…
“greenhouse gas emissions from the manufacturing, agricultural and other industries.”
In the end, it would bankrupt America with countless trillions in upgrading fees for homes, businesses, industrial complexes, factories, automobiles, offices, and EVERYWHERE ELSE THROUGHOUT AMERICA! Also, being fossil fuel bans would skyrocket the cost of agriculture, manufacturing, factory production, and transportation would make it impossible for American businesses to compete globally, forcing businesses and corporations to become dependent on government bailouts for their mere survival. Even more frightening, it would insert the government into EVERY HOME AND BUSINESS IN AMERICA
Already, the “Green New Deal” has the support of more than 40 Democrat lawmakers in the name of ‘global warming’, despite evidence showing that global warming is nothing more than a progressive attempt to consolidate power in the hands of the government, instead of in the hands of the American people. Also, Democrats fail to account for the monumental price tag of the “Green New Deal”, which would cost the American taxpayer not only MULTIPLE TENS OF TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS, but it would cost them EVERYTHING!
In addition to the “Green New Deal” that shifts the United States to 100% green energy, the Democrats are lining up behind Ocasio-Cortez’ other Soviet Style policies including…
- federal job guarantees for workers
- guaranteed minimum income
- universal health care.
The devastation of the Democrats “Green New Deal” to America’s financial well-being is sadly only the tip of the iceberg, as their plan to implement Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ other communist and socialist programs would broaden the scope of devastation to the American people and nation as a whole. For example, the Mercatus Center released a study in July that revealed that Bernie Sanders’s proposed “Medicare for All” plan would cost the American taxpayers a whopping $32.6 trillion over a mere 10 year period.
Also in July, it was estimated by hedge-fund manager Ray Dalio that the cost for “Universal Basic Income” to taxpayers would exceed more than $3.8 trillion per year, and that was with every American citizen receiving ONLY A MERE $12,000 PER YEAR year. In other words, as Ocasio-Cortez, Democrats, and other Elitists sat in their posh mansions and studios, they would make sure that every other American was equal…at least equally in poverty. Meanwhile, the American economy would be plunged off a cliff and into financial ruin.
Therefore, in the coming months and years, as Democrats take control of the House of Representatives, Americans should expect to hear the words “free”, “free for all”, “equality”, and “guaranteed”, in regards to healthcare, income, jobs, and energy! However, as history has repeatedly proven, nothing is ever as it seems, and everything has its price! It reminds me of the wise words of one of our nations visionaries…
A government big enough to give you everything you want is strong enough to take everything you have.
Thomas Jefferson, Founding Father of the United States
In fact, if anyone is unsure about the intent of the Democrat Party, Representative Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ) reassured everyone when she said the following on Fox News….
“There are dozens of measures like this that have been languishing with Republicans at the helm for years, and I expect to see many of them finally come to the floor under Democratic leadership.”
Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) already proposed “A Better Deal” platform, that called for the rolling back of the Trump tax cuts for Americans. Meanwhile, the Congressional Progressive Caucus has been working to implement “Medicare for all”, or free healthcare which is likely to cost nearly $33 trillion in just 10 short years.
In addition, Ocasio-Cortez’ “Green New Deal” calls for “free college tuition and a free educational system” which they plan to use to further indoctrinate America’s youth to their socialist and communist ideology. She claims that the educational system would emphasize “green jobs” and “more”, with an obvious emphasis on the more! Other bills that Democrats are planning to re-introduce and sponsor bills including…
- free childcare for all
- free college for all
- debt free college
- jobs guarantee
- pro-labor union bills
- climate legislation
Ultimately, Ocasio-Cortez says that she plans to finance the multi-trillion-dollar programs by raising taxes, creating new “public banks,” and running up the national debt.
Ocasio Cortez even points out in her proposals “Frequently Asked Questions” section of Ocasio-Cortez’s draft resolution, by using the Federal Reserve and having them extend credit to enable these projects and investments, creating new public banks, and extending credit. Also, she has proposed mimicking the French’s taxes on carbon and other emissions, which led to some of the largest riots in decades. She also calls for “progressive wealth taxes”, which would financially bankrupt the middle class, leaving only a minority of Americans with wealth and power like herself and her party (Elitists), no middle class what-so-ever, and a poor class who are equally poor, equally desperate, and equally dependent on the Elites for survival!
Currently, being the GOP has a majority in the Senate, and President Trump sits in the White House, it is doubtful that these measures would pass. However, the Democrats along with the Administrative State are working tirelessly to remove the President from power, and win elections against Republicans by any means necessary! In addition, they have employed search, smear, and destroy missions to run off conservative candidates who seek office, in an effort to win the unwinnable campaigns across the nation.
House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy, recently told Breitbart News that Democrats are moving “toward clear socialism,” and suggested Republicans need to make the case for “unleashing the great powers of liberty and freedom.” However, each year that becomes a taller order, as Progressive-Democrats and their Socialist and Communist counterparts infect countless areas throughout America like our corporations, silicone valley, technology sectors, educational sectors, social media, mainstream media, elected government leaders, and throughout the Administrative State!
Sadly, unless Americans vote truly pro-constitutional, pro-American, pro-freedom candidates into office throughout the United States, our nation will sink into the same socialist and communist abyss that Venezuela is facing today. Although Ocasio-Cortez’ and the Democrat Party’s initiatives would be like an EMP (Electro-Magnetic-Pulse) going off nationwide, Americans will continue to elect the most deceitful candidates who are intent on destroying our nation and instituting communist ideology unless they pay more attention to the truth, rather than being engrossed in a false reality. Unfortunately, too many are engrossed in ‘reality tv’, soap operas, professional sports, or other means to escape the real world, rather than paying attention to the horrors that are just over the horizon. Horrors that will devastate our families, our children, our grandchildren, and sadly many generations to come.
