“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Orrin Hatch's treacherous support of stupid green-energy

The idea of green-energy is a nice one, that is if you can bring it to the market place and compete with traditional sources of energy. I'd be the first one to put solar panels, rain-water cisterns, and wind-mills in my yard if it was cost effective for me, but IT ISN'T. The only way for stupid green-energy to survive is for the government to force citizens to pay for it with tax money confiscated from them at the point of a gun. With billions being appropriated from taxpayers to support the green-energy fantasy the economy can only last so long as the citizenry won't have any money left to spend.

It's bad enough when idiot liberals do it to us, but when one of our own screws us, it's time for him to go.

From the MadisonProject -- Last week, with the help of Senator Orrin Hatch, the Senate Finance Committee voted to extend dozens of special interest tax preferences for green energy – preferences that are nothing more than subsidies and market distorters. Included in the $205 billion package is the Production Tax Credit, which subsidizes up to 80% of wind energy production.

If there's a more apt metaphor for the US economy under Obama, I haven't seen it.....
