This is what I think we will see from the democrats starting this January...
Lower Taxes for the middle class and small business. Small energy and environmental businesses I think will play a strong role in this crisis.
Man, I don't know what you are smoking, but if "The One" wins tomorrow you are in for a very rude awakening. If you think Obama is going to drop taxes then I think you also should expect to see the Pope getting drunk at a local bar. Obama is a Marxists. Marxists DON'T lower taxes - in fact he thinks it's "selfish" for people to NOT want to pay taxes. I do agree energy and environmental business will play a role in this crisis - because they will be in crisis. Obama is on record with his willingness to banckrupt the coal industry.
Funding for research dealing with the underlying energy crisis. Solve this and our need for oil from the middle east goes away and we have technology to export to the rest of the world. Energy is power in this 21st century world!
Agreed we need new sources - but the idea that all this is going to change within about 10 years (that's the timetable needed for Obama's fantasy-world to work) is crazy. It will take 10 years just to create an infrastructure ONCE a new solution is found. Obama intends to throw all the current industries "under the bus" (along with his Grandmother, I suppose). So we're in for a decade of pain just from this misguided idea alone.
Energy related jobs as well as jobs rebuilding other infrastructure elements.
I agree as long as you add the following words to the end of this sentence "will be obliterated".
A new focus on alternative transportation options. We've greatly neglected our medium distance transportation options, instead over-relying on cars and planes when a fast train would be the most desirable. If they existed people would use them.
By the time Obama is done I suspect horse and buggy or walking will be the new alternative.
A reasonable effort to balance economic and environmental concerns. The left and right have been fighting too much and mostly talking past each other on these issues. This needs to stop!
Congress is now outlawing lightbulbs (even as I write that sentence I shake my head in dis-belief). Instead they tell us to use flourescents. A scientific study of flourescents has found that when you break one of them and it falls onto a rug, the contents (THAT would be MERCURY) remains toxic in the carpet and can only be removed by cutting out the contaminated section of the carpet. Yes, with government solutions like this we ALL can sleep easier at night.
An attempt to rebuild alliances around the world, if there is a crisis war we will certainly need alliances if we want to survive!
So let's start by turning tail and waving the flag of surrender in Iraq. As much as I dislike that war, I dislike turning tail even more - NEVER a good signal to your enemies.
And of course Obama in his spare time will: (1) part the Red Sea, (2) usher in peace on Earth, goodwill towards man...yada yada yada.
I have two words...buyers remorse...
