Trying to make the world a better place is a commendable thing. Those who are working to better our planet, even self-serving politicians, deserve at least some credit for their efforts, right?
However, the problem often occurs with the method when trying to apply a solution. For instance, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and nearly everyone of the 22 Democrats running for president want to implement the Green New Deal. It’s an expensive and massive government power grab, with government aiming to take more control of our daily lives.
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who is one of the Democrats running for president, is a primarily a single-issue candidate and that issue is climate change. He wants to dramatically change how we live but that’s besides the fact because whatever he proposes is entirely useless due to him having no chance of capturing his party’s nomination for president. But that’s not stopping him for trying way too hard to connect with the younger crowd that the Democratic party so covets.
His campaign released a cringeworthy, look-at-me video that is beyond bad.
