I’ll enter in a discussion with you. I’m starting by reading about the Green New Deal. It’s a non-binding resolution, so it would serve as an
ideal goal, that’s about it.
I think it is factual that climate change is real and will have an effect on the Earth. What to do about it, though? It looks like they want to
decarbonize the economy 100% by 2050. That would help climate change, if other countries followed suit, but it might disrupt jobs and will certainly
anger a few rich people in the carbon business. I like creative policies, like planting trees and I read of something to do with the ocean. I would
recommend doing something, but not 100%.
Anyway, there is a debate on the link at the bottom of the page, I like the conservative proposal the guy who made the rebuttal makes. He says to cut
the social programs out of the plan and use market-driven technology like carbon capturing and other techniques to solve the problem. This sounds
fine. Not fine is ignoring or denying climate change.
I believe there are going to have to be some social plans implemented in this nation, at some point. We already have socialist institutions like
public schools, libraries, police, even the military. It isn’t going to turn us into a communist state to look into healthcare solutions.
We need to have a social safety net. However, the federal government ensuring the jobs of the caliber mentioned in the NGD with the benefits mentioned
On a side note, Yang mentions that robots will start taking American jobs. Who knows what the work force will look like in the future, but something
needs to be done to allow a college graduate to earn enough money to survive, as well as others. It used to be possible for the man of the house to
have a career and be able to afford a house, one or two cars, a few kids, and send them off to college, and even save up for retirement at the same
These days, there are people working full-time who can barely afford an apartment to themselves. Colleges have gotten more expensive. If this trend
continues, it could mean a decreasing middle-class, which is not good for social stability - as you can see here, it leads to policies like this being
proposed. It is in everyone’s best interest for it to be possible to earn a living wage in America. We can’t have the wealth gap increase too much
while letting the middle-class sink.
At any rate, the solution is not to deport these congresswomen or smear them or spread lies about them, those are retarded tactics that make it look
like Republicans have no coherent argument against the proposal. The best tactic would be to offer a conservative counter-proposal that addresses the
same issues in a conservative manner. If conservatives don’t even bother to try to solve real issues our country faces, how can they expect their
policies to prevail? And if they have solutions, why not talk about those instead of parading around insulting political opponents and stirring up
