The Green New Deal

(1/5) > >>

Some of the stuff in the green new deal:

Some highlights:

Cut military spending by 50%
Eliminate all nuclear energy (Ben's "it's a fraud" detector immediately starts clanging) as well as natural gas (huh?)
Ban "non-essential personal transport" (I read that as cars)
Eliminate unemployment benefits (sounds good until you realize they replace them with a "govt job for everybody")

Do they want hunger games? Cause that's how you get Venezuela.

This is the Green Party's "Green New Deal" which has been around for awhile.
Most of the "buzz" lately has been about Alexandria Orcasio-Cortez's "Green New Deal" which is different and I think even less defined. Also bad but it seems like people are confusing them.

I would say it sounds like Communism, but I think it attempts to even more Totalitarian than that. 

Sounds more like the movie "Brazil"...
