Liberal Energy Dreamland

He's just chock full of good ideas, ain't he?

By 2025, Barack Obama:

...would like 25% of U.S. electricity to be generated from clean, renewable sources including wind, solar and geothermal with a Renewable Portfolio Standard. Obama calls for $150 billion to be invested over 10 years in clean energy and infrastructure to support it.

And I'd like 25% of U.S. electricity to be generated from unicorn droppings.

Doesn't this liberal dreamland seem familiar? Let's rewind to June 20, 1979:

President Carter announces program to increase Nation's use of solar energy, including solar development bank and increased funds for solar energy research and development.

In the little land we like to call reality, our economy runs on oil. No matter how many green initiatives we sponsor, there will be significant time required to wean ourselves off of fossil fuels. And the free market will create these alternatives, not ACORN, the SEIU, and the other anti-American moonbats who are on the receiving end of a cash leaf-blower.

Ignoring the shortfall puts our entire economy -- and, by extension, our national security -- at risk.

Contact your representative today and demand an end to tyranny; demand that government unlock free-market energy solutions.
