The Green New Deal is an emergency four part program of specific solutions for moving America quickly out of crisis into the secure green future.
She clearly speaks of "emergencies" that exist and I assume she would use the dictatorial powers of the Executive Branch under the War and Emergency Powers Act to carry out her New Green Deal stuff.
If not what mechanism would she use to forward this Green Agenda?
Good luck with that. They can't even pass a budget now!
If she does choose to use the only mechanism in the powers of the Executive Branch today then we will just be continuing the on going usurpation of the Constitution that is used today.
Correct? or, no?We call these solutions a Green “New Deal” because they are inspired by the New Deal programs that helped us out of the Great Depression of the 1930s. And these solutions are “Green” because they create an economy that makes our communities sustainable and healthy.
She has the audacity to invoke the "programs" of the 30's like they were some magic bullet that "fixed" the economy.
All they did was make a Depression a really GREAT ONE and centralize even more authority in the Federal Government.
What she leaves out is the fact that many Corporations and individuals did very well in the peak of the Depression thanks to free market CAPITALISM that did an end run around the efforts of the government to strangle the economy.
Cheap and easy money inflated the bubble of the late twenties and when it popped and the interest rates went up minimal percentage points it wiped people out by the thousands. That is EXACTLY what the Fed is doing today with QE1, and 2, and now 3.First, we will guarantee the economic rights of all Americans, beginning with the right to a job at a living wage for every American willing and able to work.
The Economic Rights of All Americans is enumerated where in the U.S. Constitution?Second, we will transition to a sustainable, green economy for the 21st century, by adopting green technologies and sustainable production.
As dictated by whom? The U.N. through Agenda 21?
If she can't get Congress to do it will she attempt to ratify Agenda 21 by doing an end run around the Congress?“Land… cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice…”Not only was this 30 years prior to the global warming hysteria, but at that time, scientists were asserting that the climate was cooling. Also recall that Agenda 21, which calls for what Al Gore has since termed a “wrenching transformation” of America, was unveiled in 1992, and incorporated into American governmental machinery in 1993, via Clinton’s President’s Council on Sustainability. This radical agenda was adopted in America a full 13 years before the UN’s IPCC released its famous (or infamous, depending on one’s perspective) study claiming to prove the existence of catastrophic manmade global warming. In other words, the “Sustainability” agenda, which calls for governmental and, by extension, international control of land, natural resources, food, water, energy, cars, housing and more, in America, was drawn up many years before global warming hit the decks as a rationale for the program. The cart came before the horse. And now we are asked to believe that the already debunked and always highly controversial hypothesis of catastrophic anthropogenic global warming is reason enough for us to sacrifice our homes, our lands, our property, our rights, our way of life, and our country.
We are NOT adopting Green technologies now; They are being rammed down our throats through "regulations" by the EPA, and the Energy Dept. AGAIN in violation of the Constitution.Third, we will reboot and reprogram the financial sector so that it serves everyday people and our communities, and not the other way around.
So we will just go all out Communist Central Planning?
We will not have Banks, just Workers Credit Unions?
Holy crap the Fed is bad enough and now you would give ALL the authority to?Fourth, we will protect these gains by expanding and strengthening our democracy so that our government and our economy finally serve We the People.
According to the U.S. Constitution this is supposed to be a REPUBLIC.
While I do realize the Republic was killed in 1913 with the passage of the 17th Amendment it is not very often a political Party will admit it. The R's And D's put lip service to the Republic but they lie so much it's hard to keep track!
Obama wants to give you all of this POOP but he is beholden to the Federal Reserve and so would Stein!
Man, this is FUN!!!
