    cognizant of the future infrastructure advances that can help to possibly heal the planet but I don't think they are. I think that they truly believe, deep in their hearts, that what we are telling them is nothing but communist lies. They truly believe that we are trying to take something (some sort of freedoms or something) from them in the name of "for the better good" and they HAVE to fight us because we are trying to steal something from them. And it's making them more rabid. Everytime they lose, they double down on the crazy. For every progressive that is elected, it seems we create 2 more rabid conservative douchebags who swears to gawd that the revolution is here and we (that would be us liberals) are godless heathens that need to be destroyed. And it appears that 350 of the 400 gazillionaires in this country agree with the crazies and are funneling money to groups to make sure we do not "leave the station".    We are not going to win this argument. They are going to make sure of it. And they really don't a shit if the earth burns in the process. Seriously. Ask one of them. They really don't care if the earth gets destroyed.

      fire-breathing creatures are beyond hope. But I do think there are some of the more reasonable old school moderate conservatives that I think can be engaged in the economic benefit aspect of renewable energy and similar issues.
