Description: Democrat 2020 presidential candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke proposed Friday in Iowa that the U.S. “allow” farmers to give up their “fair share” of crops to fight climate change. O’Rourke stood aloft as he proclaimed his message at a rally in Marshalltown, Iowa Friday:
If we allow farmers to earn a profit in what they grow, if we allow them to contribute their fair share in combatting Climate Change by growing cover crops, allowing the technologies that invest in precision tilling and farming, capturing more of that carbon out of the air is another way in which they can make a profit. Keep those farms together, pass them on to the next generation, and allow them to provide us our food and national security, our independence from the rest of the world, our ability to provide for the rest of the world.

Iowa’s caucus system is the earliest to pick a contender for respective political parties in the presidential primary election system. The caucuses are scheduled for Republicans and Democrats on February 3, 2020.

The day O’Rourke announced his bid for president, mid-March in Keokuk, Iowa, he called the Green New Deal the “final chance” with just 12 years left to “take incredibly bold action on [the Climate Change] crisis,” according to RealClearPolitics. He told a crowd, “Not to be dramatic, but literally, the future of the world depends on us right now here where we are.”

Description: Beto O’Rourke didn’t eat crow, humble pie or even his words after losing to Ted Cruz. He ate dirt instead. O’Rourke, who came up short in his bid to unseat Sen. Cruz, R-Texas, despite raising $80 million for the Senate push, told the story of his earthy snack in a sprawling 3,000-word profile published by The Washington Post. “In January, Beto hit the road, much as his father had done before him, and drew energy from the people he met, and — on one stop in New Mexico he didn’t write about in his blog — by eating New Mexican dirt said to have regenerative powers,” the profile reads. “He brought some home for the family to eat, too.”

The profile was published as O’Rourke joined other Democrats in signaling his support for a range of controversial ideas, including abolishing the Electoral College. “I think there’s a lot to that. Because you had an election in 2016 where the loser got 3 million more votes than the victor,” O’Rourke said in a video posted online on Tuesday. “It puts some states out of play altogether, they don’t feel like their votes really count. “If we really want everyone to vote, to give them every reason to vote, we have to make sure their votes count and go to the candidate of their choosing. So I think there’s a lot of wisdom in that.” O’Rourke’s comments came one day after Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., pushed a similar proposal. “Every vote matters and the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting, and that means get rid of the Electoral College,” Warren told an audience at the historically black Jackson State University in Mississippi. O’Rourke, whose entry into the 2020 presidential race last week was accompanied by immense media fanfare, is already rolling in campaign cash. The 46-year-old reported raising a whopping $6.1 million online in the first 24 hours after his announcement, marking a new record for the 2020 Democratic primary race. “In just 24 hours, Americans across this country came together to prove that it is possible to run a true grassroots campaign for president -- a campaign by all of us for all of us that answers not to the PACs, corporations and special interests but to the people,” O’Rourke said in a statement. The previous record this year was set by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., whose campaign posted a $5.9 million haul in the first 24 hours after his 2020 launch.

Description: Campaigning for president in Iowa, Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke thinks farmers need to do their "fair share" to combat global warming, handing over some of their crops to save the Earth. Kid you not. According to Breitbart News:
Democrat 2020 presidential candidate Robert "Beto" O'Rourke proposed Friday in Iowa that the U.S. "allow" farmers to give up their "fair share" of crops to fight climate change. O'Rourke stood aloft as he proclaimed his message at a rally in Marshalltown, Iowa Friday: If we allow farmers to earn a profit in what they grow, if we allow them to contribute their fair share in combatting Climate Change by growing cover crops, allowing the technologies that invest in precision tilling and farming, capturing more of that carbon out of the air is another way in which they can make a profit. Keep those farms together, pass them on to the next generation, and allow them to provide us our food and national security, our independence from the rest of the world, our ability to provide for the rest of the world.

Where does he get the idea that farmers' land and crops are "his" land and crops, to be used by the state as he deems fit? That's called a tax hike in ordinary terms, and state expropriation if you look at it closely enough. Hugo Chávez used to think Venezuelan farmers' land and crops were "his" land and crops once upon a time, too, and we all know how well that worked out. Just as idiotically, where does Beto get the idea that crops just float in out of nowhere, usable as payment and currency, and aren't the result of back-breaking labor from farmers and their workers? Forcing farmers and their laborers to work land in exchange for no payment other than the supposed satisfaction of saving the Earth is, in normal terms, known as "slavery." Decent people pay their help. The whole thing shows the extent to which O'Rourke would go to enact his green agenda. It seems the new socialist mantra is that so long as you can virtue-signal, you can help yourself to anything from those who work for it. It also shows that he sees global warming as an instrument for increasing state power, even as he puts it in new dulcet terms such as "allowing" farmers to "contribute" their fair share. What he means is what socialists always mean: taking other people's stuff by force. And like any socialist (I'm gonna call him one with a proposal like that), he always favors what he favors conditioned on himself being the one on top, doing all the "redistributing." How'd he like some Iowa farmers to "redistribute" some of his belongings in the name of saving the Earth? It's the same logic. It's vapid. It's impractical. And it has potential for destroying the entire farm structure of the U.S., given that farmer after farmer in such as scenario will "go Galt." What it shows is that Beto hasn't a clue as to what makes economies run. The ignorant boob's lust is solely for power over others. Call it socialism with a boyish and syrupy face.
