“We must end the tyranny of oil in our time,” the platform said.

Translated; We must end the convenience and affordability of energy, and drive the Serfs (us) into a lower overall standard of living to appease the elitist enviro-Nazis.

Meanwhile, 0bama is funding Brazil. That helps him further erode our ‘superpower’ status. After all, in his view America doesn’t deserve to be #1.

It will not be easy, but neither was getting to the moon,” the platform said.

Getting to the moon was a child’s play compared with the virtual terraforming they are talking about.

Oil isn't going anywhere. The enemies within the USA cannot blow it up, make it sink,
cover it with a curtain, or ignore it as it washes onto the shores of the West coast.

When fuel costs Americans 10-50% of their earnings maybe then we as a whole will
wake up to the sabotage the democrats have planned and implemented to
our greatest country on the planet.

[[which will lead to devastating weather patterns, terrible storms, drought, conflict, and famine]]

So basically what htey are saying is that the earth is goign to suffer what it has suffered already for the past few thousand years? Only now it’s goign to be ‘man’s fault’? I say that taxing peopel even further causing massive loss of hoems and an inability ot feed our families because of massively high energy prices and carbon taxes will infact be Mann’s fault (michael mann that is)

[[They can rant, say a provable falsehood, or make it painfully clear that they’re living in lala land, personally attack Mitt or Ryan,]]

I’m stil ltryign to decifer the secret racist code that the GOP apparently is speaking in unbeknownst to everyoen except democrats evidently- So to sum up, accordign to the left, Romeny haqtes women, hates poor people, hates peopel of color, hates the middle class, hates the president, hates doctors, hates nurses, hates teachers, hates blue collar workers, hates old people, hates sick people, hates women with cancer, and he’s a felon and a murderer to boot!

I think the attacks on Mitt have already begun

Yup. That is one hell of a code. And here he manages to pass himself off as a totally passionless career politician. Little did we know that he’s another Pol Pot, out to save America by massacring half of it.

The Northeasters who lost electricity in a flood last year

They lost electricity in a freak October snowstorm, not a flood. The snowstorm was supposedly caused by "global warming" or more specifically Arctic amplification, but that is BS like much of what they say about global warming.

We don’t use much oil to produce electricity. Somewhere around one to three percent of our generation is from oil.

We use coal (50%), gas (20%), nuclear (20%) and hydro (7%) to produce electricity.

Oil is mainly for transportation.

I find it hilarious that the very liberal Northeast is one of the only developed places on Earth where oil is used for heating. This is one of the most idiotic uses for oil that I can think of in the modern era - it should have been banned 40 years ago.

Yup. About 2% of oil consumption is for heating, and here are the top five heating oil consuming states (in order): NY, MA, PA, CT and NJ.

“It will not be easy, but neither was getting to the moon,” the platform said.

They always make this comparison but that was always basic physics with known science. These people are demanding something that does not exist according to known science. A recipe for a trillion dollar boondoggle.

The Rats are completely unhinged.

Tney get all goofy-eyed when anyone mentions "enforceable" and "mandatory" anything. Mandating and enforcing are their primary preoccupations. They want to stand over every living person on earth with a whip.

Oh, wait -- they did that. Back before the Civil War.

Another possibility might be that they are only adding all of this crazy stuff to their platform because that motivates the grassroots and besides the politicians have no intention of following through.

Remember that this stuff all began as a codicil to the Communist Party platform in Canada -- it was all about "ten more reasons we need a command economy", and why only total state power, administered by ideologically-correct Communists, would suffice to solve society's problems.

Canadian Communist Maurice Strong lifted the ecological planks out of the old Communist Party platform of the 70's and retooled it for the Rio Conference in 1991 ..... and sold it to Al Gore. That's where Red became Green -- but it's the same old crock. Now they just say it the other way 'round, but it's the same old command-economy, command-everything b.s. the Communists have been selling for 120 years. Longer than that, even -- the Paris Commune was 1870, and the Reds were in the middle of the 1848 communist revolts that failed ..... sending droves of Reds our way. (A couple of them became generals for Abe Lincoln. Carl Schurz even ended up on a purple U.S. 4-cent stamp in the early 1970's. Guy was a Commie! -- guess someone put one over on Tricky Dick!)

They can argue it round or argue it flat -- but two things are always "true": 1) It's your fault, and 2) We're going to police you up, right now.

"“We hear that call and we Democrats commit to fast-track investment of billions of dollars over the next ten years to establish a green energy sector that will create up to five million jobs,” the platform said."

The fools will bring this nation into total poverty eventually given the chance to do so.

“...to establish a green energy sector that will create up to five million jobs,” the platform said.”

...like the last few years and billions of dollars did?

Hmmm, they’ve become more crafty...now it’s “up to”... “up to” includes 30, five, and nothing.

We need our own government on our own side.

We need our own companies on our own side.

We have for too long adopted policies which WEAKEN our nation, and China is rapidly approaching a passing lane.

Wake the heck up people.

This is not a game. America is losing.

Well, we did get a lot of great spinoffs from NASA...from Green Energy, I have a very nice solar-powered set of outdoor evening lamps...from China.
