ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ USES ALLIED VICTORY AGAINST NAZI GERMANY AS BLUEPRINT TO DEFEAT … GLOBAL WARMING

Democratic socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to address global warming the same way America defeated the Nazis during World War II.
Speaking at a campaign event on Friday, Ocasio-Cortez made the case that, since Nazi Germany and global warming are both “existential threats,” the same tactics used against one should be levied against the other.
“So, when we talk about existential threats,” said Ocasio Cortez, “the last time we had a really major existential threat in this country was around World War II. So, we’ve been here before, and we have a blueprint of what we did before. None of these things are new ideas.” (RELATED: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Equates Ending Of Slavery To Electing Democrats)
“What we had was an existential threat in the context of a war,” she continued. “And what we did was that we chose to mobilize and industrialize our entire economy and we put hundreds of thousands if not millions of people to work in defending our shores and defending this country.”
So of course, according to the New York Democratic socialist congressional candidate, the “same thing” should work to “get us to 100 percent renewable energy.”
“It may seem like really big, it may seem really ambitious, it may seem very radical, as people love to say, but the fact of the matter is that we’re dealing with a radical truth, and the more we choose to ignore it the worse we are doing by our children and our grandchildren and frankly ourselves,” she concluded.

What global warming demands is a totally stupid and futile gesture be done on someone's part, and we're just the guys to do it.
As a far right fiscal conservative, then surely you believe it would be less costly to fix the damages caused by global warming than blow money on taxes and prohibitive regulations to prevent it from happening, which in itself may be a futile waste of money. China and India not doing their part doesn't help.

Medicare is socialized health insurance. Is it such a threat to America that you believe it should be abolished?
You mean the thing that is bankrupting America? The thing that drives up healthcare costs for everybody? The thing that future generations may not be able to count on despite paying into it their whole lives? Your asking me if I think that Medicare is a threat and should be abolished?

To answer your question, yes I do think it is a threat, but instead of abolished, I think it should be privatized in a way that minimizes the loss of what older generations have paid in so far but also allows future generations to get out from under the pyramid scheme that our government mandated retirement systems have become. I said systems with an s, because this applies equally to social security.

not necessarily abolished, but capitalized (vouchers - and free markets)

the medical INDUSTRY in the US is NOT socialized, and Medicare undercuts the free markets, so medicare needs to be brought back into a capitalist framework to make the medical INDUSTRY more free market.

you cannot even get the terminology correct. Global Warming is NORMAL. We don't FIX "Mother Nature". Warming. Cooling. Seasons. Day/Night. It is NORMAL.

you might have meant to say "man-made" warming, and as soon as you can define that for me (i.e., show me the difference from normal warming), and demonstrate that warming is actually "bad" (since nobody can define weather cooler or warmer is better), then I'd be happy to have a discussion about it.

How can we possibly have a discussion if you cannot even define what it is that we'd be discussing?

It's not an either/or when none of it happens and, if it did, you can't control the temperature of the earth if you wanted to.
