What do you suppose this kook is a “guardian” of?
You’ve seen how well it works in California–state ownership of the production and provision of electricity. One of socialism’s success stories! Not.
Now Bernie Sanders wants to do California on a national scale, with the federal government owning all electricity and deciding who gets to use how much–all to Save The Planet, of course (https://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/energy/item/34803-sanders-energy-plan-nationalize-electricity-production-end-oil-and-gas). If he’s elected president, he says, he’s gonna “declare a Climate Emergency”–you call imaginary things into being by “declaring” them–so that the government can do “whatever it takes” to stop it.
Do you really, truly, want to find out what “whatever it takes” would mean for your own life? If you do, you’re as crazy as he is.
Bongo’s plan–oops! Did I write “Bongo”? I meant “Bernie”–is to cut America off from gas and oil “by 2030 at the latest.” (Didn’t he hear Greta Thunberg saying “now” means “right now”?) This leaves us to wonder how he’s gonna produce the electricity he plans to nationalize. The whole boondoggle is projected to cost a mere $16 trillion. Which you and I will pay for.
Ask anyone in California how much fun it was to cope with state-imposed power cut-offs throughout this past summer. Y’know that food in your freezer? Kiss it goodbye. What–it’s 95 degrees in your bedroom tonight? Sorry, no air conditioning allowed.
And after having done all this stuff to us, and nothing freakin’ happens, they’ll turn around and smirk at us and say, “See? Nothing happened! Totalitarianism really works!”
