They are sick. Delusional. Irrational. And that was BEFORE Trump................

Wanting to inflict pain on the middle class in some vain attempt to SAVE THE WORLD....

Normally, the mad Left would not object terribly to the ensuing fuel price hikes. Remember, Joe Biden bragged on the campaign trail that he would end fossil fuels during his tenure.

Obama’s soon-to-be Energy Secretary Steven Chu said during the 2008 campaign he wished to see American gas prices match those in Europe (i.e. $9-10 a gallon). And then President Obama himself did not disagree. He meekly added that such increases should be “gradual.” He had also warned that his cap-and-trade initiatives would necessarily “skyrocket” electricity prices—without suggesting that his off-guard brag was even a gaffe of unexpectedly telling the truth.

So green orthodoxy dictates that the highest possible fossil fuel prices are good. Unaffordability will hasten the end of gas and oil, ensuring currently subsidized but uneconomical green energy as the only remaining alternative.

But like most leftist top-down agendas, the details and consequences are usually hidden. After all, green wokeism usually exempts the lifestyles of its elite advocates. The Obamas currently are building a most un-green luxury Hawaiian beach mansion (their third such estate). And Al “Earth in the Balance” Gore got rich selling his failed cable outlet to a carbon-fueled Al Jazeera.

Nonetheless exorbitant gas and heating prices are toxic politically to the middle class. Worse yet for the Left, we are currently in a Biden-created inflationary spiral, in the middle of a savage Ukrainian war, and facing a catastrophic Democratic wipeout in the upcoming November midterms.

The result of green theory meeting cruel reality is sheer madness. As a good green, Joe Biden in one of his first acts sought to cancel the critical EastMed pipeline that is planned to feed over 10 billion cubic meters per year of natural gas into southern Europe. That clean burning fuel would enhance the suppliers, our allies Greece, Cyprus, and Israel.

This article just touches on the insanity of the left nut jobs. Defunding police during a crime wave. Wide open border and actual helping illegal entry during a once in a century pandemic. The insane Iran deal with Russia involved. Could go on all day.

And yet, the zombies continue to hang with the Democratic Party. Why?

I believe they have been programmed to think that the Republicans are the party of the rich. I see this when I talk with Democrats. Truth is, the Republicans are the party of efficient private enterprise. The Democrats are the party of state control and inefficiency. It's that simple. Democrats believe in the Robin Hood Principle.

One of the best approaches in future election campaigns would simply be to tell the truth. The Democrats took over and suddenly the richest people are even more rich. The poor and middle classes are paying for it through the inflation tax.

It's really not that complicated. Democrats tend to win with their zombies by claiming that inflation is caused by corporate greed. It's this misunderstanding that needs to be a part of education. But it isn't. Democrats control both education and the media.

It's this reality, that Democrats manipulate and control the flow of information, that will send the free world into a death spiral for the lower and middle classes, with a windfall for the wealthy.

Agreed. Arthur Brooks wrote a book about this very subject in 2011. The Battle: How The Fight Between Free Enterprise and Big Government Will Shape America's Future. Great read.

Thomas Sowell said it best. "The government is no where close to being capable of doing the things people on the left wanted it to do; in fact, we'd be lucky if they didn't make it worse."

Agree, but I think it comes down to one central thing.

People at a certain age just don't want to admit they were wrong.
