I don't usually post on the off-topic stuff because lefties and righties are equally stupid, but your post is so ignorant I have to respond. So many of our "other" problems you are referring to are being amplified by climate change which is only going to continue to exasperate these issues. Immigration is one of these examples. Mass migrations of people are occurring BECAUSE of climate change.
For the life of me I cannot figure out why conservatives have taken such a ludicrous stance on climate change. 99.9% of the scientific community is in agreement on this. Hell, just observing the world with your own two eyes should make that clear. Our actions are causing the climate to change. I agree with many Republican policies, but if they can't trust basic scientific facts than I can't trust the party. How did this become one of the core tenants of the republican party. It is such a strange hill to chose to die on.
Thanks for your kind words. Nice to meet you!
There is nothing wrong with taking care of the environment. I am 100% for that and as a nation we do a fantastic job of it and we will continue to get better. The problem I have is not with encouraging clean air, water, etc. The problem I have is subjecting our nation to a global scheme on Climate Change that actually has zero to do with fixing anything. The scheme is designed as economic redistribution that is destructive to our economy and our people. Meanwhile China gets off free and they along with India and others are polluting like mad.
The other part of the initiative I have a huge problem with is force feeding technologies that are not ready to be efficient over fossil fuels that are efficient. We are finally oil independent, which is causal to peace breaking out in the ME and Dems want to toss that huge advantage aside, replace the fossil fuels and drive the cost of energy up for the average person. That's not smart. There is a lot more I could say about it. However, I will sum it up by saying that the one thing we know for sure about the Climate Change prophets is that they have been consistently lying to us and wrong. It is an industry more than it is a science. Science is being manipulated for political and monetary purposes.
