Never interrupt …
The Democratic Party, at least its ever-growing, ever-vocal, far left wing, is going nuts.
Take, for instance, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal.’ Wall Street Journal editorial board member Kimberly Strassel, a hero of ours, by the way, says the four-part plan, a non-binding resolution she offered up, “reads like a parody of the Democratic Party done by Republicans.
“By the end of the Green New Deal resolution (and accompanying fact sheet) I was laughing so hard I nearly cried,” Strassel wrote on Twitter. “If a bunch of GOPers plotted to forge a fake Democratic bill showing how bonkers the party is, they could not have done a better job. It is beautiful.”
And beautiful it is. Ocasio-Cortez, a freshman, self-styled New York Democratic Socialist, within 10 years would increase government power over our lives exponentially.
She would give jobs to every person, offer free schooling through college, build high-speed railways across every state, force the country to rely only on renewable energy, with no emissions, upgrade or replace “every building,” and promise economic security even for those who are “unwilling” to work.
She also would halt foreclosures, make utilities operate at cost, nationalize federal reserve banks and break up larger banks.
How will we pay for the trillions upon trillions it would take? Ocasio-Cortez suggests the government simply print more money.
The Democratic Party continually, on issues ranging from aborting babies only seconds from being born to things such as Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, is showing us what it is. We encourage it to continue. It will kill itself
In the meantime, we take to heart Napoleon Bonaparte’s sage advice:
”Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.”
