The Democrats are pushing for a socialist policy: The Green New Deal.

This so-called deal reads like a socialist wish list. It proposes eliminating air travel, nuclear energy, and “farting cows”; replacing every building in the U.S. with a “green” alternative, and providing “economic security” for “all who are unable or unwilling to work”—among other measures.

Satirical depicting a law enforcement officer with weapon drawn questioning nearby cows which one of them flatulated. It appears they all did.

A Very Bad Idea

One of self-proclaimed socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s first acts was drafting up a “Green New Deal.” On February 7th, her office released a FAQ to NPR and it quickly became apparent this “Deal” would, if enacted, be perhaps the most economically devastating action ever taken by the U.S. It’s not simply a bad idea—it’s entirely unrealistic and advocates for “a massive transformation of our society.”

Socialism Takes

Unfortunately, this Green RAW Deal would drag our country down the path to poverty. The outline for the plan calls for a ban on fossil fuels, a massive increase in welfare, and a total overhaul of the US economy that would cost trillions of dollars—more money than the U.S. has ever spent on any project.

This socialist plan would not make our country green, it would take our country’s green—that is, your money.

Capitalism Creates

America owes its prosperity to free market policies like tax cuts that have allowed small businesses to thrive without unnecessary government overreach. Countries that adopted socialism including Venezuela, Cambodia, and the Soviet Union all became impoverished, serving as giant red warning signs to the rest of the world.

Despite this clear cautionary tale, Democrats are advocating for the Green RAW Deal. Policy disagreements are one thing, but draining America’s coffers—and then some—is beyond the pale.

Sign the Petition

Tell your representatives to stand up to socialism!

Democrats must restore sanity to their ranks before it’s too late. We call on all members of Congress who are still grounded in reality to reject this clear socialist threat to the United States.
