Under socialism the elites - as @AOC has now achieved - never want for anything. A few elite enjoy the fruit that is common among the many under free-market capitalism. All of history shows this. Venezuela TODAY shows this now. @AOC will never not ✈️. @JustinTHaskins 1/
@AOC @JustinTHaskins The elites like @AOC in a socialist society must enjoy the fruits of what capitalism has brought humanity. They require the convenience. They need private planes. They need catered meals. They need ... well ... even toilet paper. Softer the better. @JustinTHaskins 2/
@AOC @JustinTHaskins The elites who would rule us under "democratic socialism" require the conveniences capitalism created & provide in abundance (and which they will withhold from others). Understand: It's so their minds are clear to plan a better tomorrow. It's unpatriotic to suggest otherwise. 3/
@AOC @JustinTHaskins To a modern "democratic socialist," what value does the freedom the Founders fought and died to bequeath to us compared to doing "what needs to be done" to ... whatever is the crisis of the moment. In the case of @AOC, it's to save the planet. 4/
@AOC @JustinTHaskins The #GreenNewDeal is a pretext for nullifying the American founding, the long-yearned-for goal of all socialists. And why, after 240 years, should the liberty be nullified? Because, as @AOC says, humans (mostly Americans) are making this planet uninhabitable in just 12 years. 5/
@AOC @JustinTHaskins But what if humans are not causing a climate crisis? What if human activity is having some effect, but it is minuscule compared to natural forces? What if many esteemed scientists and people more expert on this subject than @AOC said so?

@AOC @JustinTHaskins Answer: It would not matter. Because socialists do not care about science. Socialists do not care about facts. Socialists do not care that we recently broke the record for major hurricanes hitting the US. Socialists do not care that the number of tornadoes are in decline. 7/
@AOC @JustinTHaskins Socialists do not care that wildfires are no more frequent now than 100 years ago. But fires are bigger and more expensive to deal with bc of eco-left-driven forest management and bc humans have settled more in fire country. 8/
@AOC @JustinTHaskins Socialists don't really care about the environment. They are about gaining control of a government so they can impose their will. That's why the @AOC #GreenNewDeal has mostly nothing to do with science and will dismisses all contrarian data, like this 9/:…
@AOC @JustinTHaskins Colonial Americans fought the greatest power on earth (Great Britain) to create a unique and enlightened society. Then that truly Greatest Generation negotiated a compact among disagreeable patriots - our Constitution - to preserve as long as possible a free society 10/
@AOC @JustinTHaskins I hope my fellow Americans will not allow trendy socialists and the myth of human-caused climate catastrophe to destroy the most perfect system of self-government ever created by man. The history of humans shows that liberty is only earned by blood. Just look at Venezuela. 11/end
