On the Green New Deal
I support the Green New Deal, and condemn GOP leadership for the dragons that they are, killing off humanity for their own personal gain. However, I am not about to play cheerleader to the Democrats. This is a typical gambit of underdog parties — to vigorously put forth their most radical ideas, only when safe in the knowledge that those ideas will never be adopted. Thus their constituents are happy (“they’re trying!”), their money interests are happy (“it’s a phase!”), and they themselves are happy (“it’s the other party’s fault!”). I am not fooled, and you shouldn’t be either. If they manage to elect a President, the Dems will go right back to the corporate-fed, business-as-usual politicians they are.
