A "Green" New Deal? Careful America, it might be coming to your state too!

Yes, now it's time for some local politics. This is from MassLive which is the site for all things local Massachusetts.  

There's a Lexington, Mass resident named Jill Stein who is running on the Green Rainbow ticket.  That's right.  Not the Democrat or Republican ticket or even the Whig Party for that matter, no she's decided to scoop up all the greenies and gays in Massachusetts and pander to the environmental effeminate.  

But most interestingly she's promoting her plan called the "Green New Deal."  Now a couple years ago this might have sounded nice to me since only a couple years ago I found the truth about the New Deal from the 1930s.  Being a product of the American Education System I had learned that FDR's New Deal was what got us out of the Great Depression.  Nothing could have been further from the truth.  As a matter of fact, the New Deal got us deeper into debt, causing unemployment and other massive problems.  Two UCLA economists explain:
"The fact that the Depression dragged on for years convinced generations of economists and policy-makers that capitalism could not be trusted to recover from depressions and that significant government intervention was required to achieve good outcomes," Cole said. "Ironically, our work shows that the recovery would have been very rapid had the government not intervened."
So for the educated Mass resident, this idea stinks.  Really bad.  But according to the MassLive article she wants to tap into, wait for it... "dissatisfaction from the left to President Obama saying that he betrayed key voting blocs."

There we go.  Those key voting blocs are just so huge in Massachusetts that tapping into them will be a gold mine for her.  Go for it Jill!  But here's the real plan.  Here's the "Green New Deal" that she's really pushing for: 
"Stein's plan would provide public jobs for the unemployed, including green jobs that she said will transition America to a secure, green economy for the 21st Century."
Yes, provide jobs.  Love it.  Just for the unemployed.  Not restricted to but including green jobs.  Define green jobs.  They can't.  This plan will transition America to a secure, green economy for the future just like the original New Deal did, right Ms. Stein?  

This is downright scary.  Is it going to take 70+ years to realize that it actually ruined the economy and country?
