WASHINGTON: Gangrene begins to set in when the tissue no longer has a blood supply. The flesh then becomes much like a dead animal lying in the sun. It rots. It dies, and unless amputated, the rot will spread to the entire body. Death, ironically due to blood poisoning, then occurs.
A real-world comparison for the putrification of gangrene is the public and the society and government they choose.
Freedom is a societies blood supply. The more it is unhampered, the healthier and happier it is — however, cut-off the blood flow, and ultimately infection sets. The infection is Democrat era progressive solutions leading to the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gangrene deal.
The New Deal circa 1933
President Franklin Roosevelt (1933-1939), a Democrat, can be considered the first Socialist President, though Theodore Roosevelt (1901-1909) is reviled as the father of progressive politics. Both Roosevelt’s morphing the Founding Father’s democrat nation into a semi-socialist one.
Franklin Roosevelt ushered in The New Deal within the first three months of his Depression-era (1929-1939) presidency.
The New Deal was first to alleviate the suffering of the nation’s massive number of unemployed workers. Agencies like the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) were established to dispense emergency and short-term governmental aid and to provide temporary jobs, employment on construction projects, and youth work in the national forests.
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) was enacted to support the Wagner Act of 1935. The Wagner Act expanded the authority of the federal government. The legislation was passed to aid the “forgotten” homeowner, refinance shaky mortgages and guarantee bank loans for both modernization and mortgage payments.
Perhaps the most far-reaching programs of the entire New Deal were the Social Security measures enacted in 1935 and 1939. The now-beleaguered program’s purpose was to provide old-age and widows’ benefits, unemployment compensation, and disability insurance.
Socialism at work
Venezuela, after its 1945-1948 attempt at a democratic society with a mix of dictators with an assortment of government-of-the-moment politics.
In 1999 Hugo Chavez rode in to save the country with socialism via his Bolivarian Missions.
Compare the failed state of Venezuela with the free state of Switzerland, a republic that is one of the most prosperous countries in the world.
Free republics survive and live because they have qualified voters exercising their franchise. The progressive socialist Democrats are selling will not easily die. However, it will kill. As Democrat regulations cut off the blood supply, there will only be a choice only between amputation and death.
The Democrat plan to destroy America’s Greatness begins with the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 2019 Gangrene New Deal.
Following are a few of the more poignant elements of the just-released House Resolution so-called Green New Deal:
1. Transition to 100% recyclable energy uses only.
2. Provide income and benefits for everyone whether they want to work or not.
3. Allow unlimited immigration by anyone at any time. Just moving here makes you eligible for guaranteed income and benefits.
4. Retrofit all buildings in the U.S. to meet government environmental standards.
5. Eliminate all airplane travel.
6. Ban all beef products.
It is important to note that like Al Gore with his ginormous energy footprint, these regulations will apply to you, and me. As we see in states where dictators and oligarchs rule, they will retain their homes, cars, airplanes, and lifestyles. You, however, will be on an all gangrene diet. Hamburgers and steak will be outlawed.
So who pays for socialism?
You, I and all the taxpayers. Despite that, if everyone who paid taxes paid 100% tax, these programs could not be funded.
Not to mention how long will the body of taxpayers gradually attacked by social programs over the past century continue to work?
The Green New Deal is more than a wound of socialism. It is the result of the gradual shortening of the blood supply. It will kill.
Unfortunately, the only answer is amputation. By cutting Washington way from the body return to local governments where people understand reality.
This fool’s errand of the child-like Casio Cortez isn’t a wonderful life for all. It is death
