Today was the day that the details of the “Green New Deal,” sponsored by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA).
And it was roundly mocked for being one of the silliest things put out in quite some time by any politician.
From wanting to virtually eliminate travel by airplane and rebuilding every building in the United States to guaranteeing “economic security” to all including those “unwilling to work,” it is a complete socialistic fantasyland.

Despite that, as was reported earlier, 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris agreed to co-sponsor the Deal.
But now, even after it was roundly mocked and even after the FAQ page went down from Ocasio-Cortez’s website, other 2020 candidates are also signing onto it.
One has to wonder if any of them actually read it, because no rational person could take it seriously.
Or is running to the left so important that they’ll say or do anything they think appeals to that base?
But that will reveal them to be too radical to vote for in the general election.
