You too could have had a Green-Socialist paradise like Australia.
Think yourselves lucky, America
Maybe Americans should look at how their country could have looked by contrasting how the US is now, to how currently Australia is doing.
“…the death of Australian manufacturing. Invest downunder! Get high taxes, high labor costs, expensive unreliable energy, and a tiny market. We’ve got lots of land and resources, but a Titanium Shield of Red Tape, no free speech, barely any real media, and government funded anti-business activists. ”
Yes, Australia, like America, is a vast country full of riches, resources, and an educated population. However successive Socialist and Green governments have borrowed, taxed, and spent increasing amounts of this generation’s, and the next generation’s, wealth. They started by massively expanding the government, ensuring it could interfere in the smallest aspect of every citizen’s life, and every company’s basic operation.
They did this while massively funding ‘green’ schemes in electricity generation and anti-coal actions (blowing-up upgradeable coal generating plants), paying huge subsidies to government favored cronies for providing intermittent electricity via unreliable ‘renewables’ at the same cost or more, often at elevated costs over reliable, fossil fueled, electricity generation.
They’ve also imposed harsh and needless green laws and ‘sustainability’ restrictions on most industries, and atop all that is the never-ending rounds of socialist schemes in taxing companies and wealthy individuals to the maximum.
All this done while state run TV and radio relentlessly churn out the government ‘good news’, and climate/industry/environmental ‘bad’ news.
This has ensured that ordinary Australian don’t just feel the decline in living standards, they know that it is real but feel powerless to prevent it.
Think yourselves lucky, America. With the Democrats, you too could have had a Green-Socialist paradise like Australia.
