I have to say, this Green New Deal is the gift that keeps on giving.
Not only is it exposing average Americans to the insane socialist fantasies of Millennial “It” Girl Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
But it also ensnared Democrat Presidential hopefuls who quickly and mindlessly followed Alex down the rabbit hole.
And the best part is, these 2020 candidates are now on the record espousing a policy of pure imagination.
Yesterday, while in Iowa, Spartacus Booker – using his best “earnest” voice – waxed quixotically about “reaching for the stars.”
After all, we are the country who went to the moon!
And when we needed to save the world from Nazis, we Americans took up the fight and saved the world.
According to Cory, we can do it again through the pure imagination of AOC’s Green New Deal!
Cory seems oblivious to the fact that the tremendous moments he cites – World War Two and Space Travel could never have happened if his Green Dream of Pure Imagination existed during the last century.
How do you defeat the Axis powers when there are no tanks, no planes, no trucks or jeeps or ships or landing craft or submarines – let alone atomic bombs to drop on Japan?
Hell, we wouldn’t even have rubber for tires.
America would have been isolated from the world.
Unable to get across the Atlantic or out into the Pacific, we would’ve helplessly waited for the Axis to attack us here at home. Of course, if that happened, the best we could’ve done was throw rocks at them from our carbon-neutral buildings.
The America that defeated the Nazis wouldn’t have been around to defeat the Nazis if this Green Dream of Pure Imagination had been imposed a hundred years ago.
And the moon?
Forget the moon. Going to the moon in the Green Dream of Pure Imagination would’ve been just as fantastical in 1969 as it was when H.G. Wells imagined it.
Rockets require fuel after all.
Besides, how do you fund all that innovation and technology when the Green Dream of Pure Imagination would’ve already utterly bankrupted the country?
Without the natural resources, innovation and industry, instead of the nation who reached for space, we’d have been more like the opening scene from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Booker sounds less like a serious Presidential candidate and more like Willy Wonka peddling a fantasyland of Pure Imagination from the pages of a children’s book. Which makes sense when you think about it. The Green New Deal does sound like the imaginative, unrealistic musings of an 8-year-old.
I expect that kind of demanding, self-centered pipe dream from the Millennial “It” Girl.
But no American with half a brain wants to hear it coming from someone who thinks he’s “Presidential material.”
And, sadly (or hilariously as the case may be), Cory’s not the only 2020 candidate doing it.
