    we are on the cusp of total Dem electoral domination. But deep down I think you know it will be members of the Dem Party that will block the legislative revolution you seek. So incremental it will have to be, on the national level at least.

    There is nothing stopping blue states from taking the lead.
    Good luck with getting everything at once.

      what we need to do to prevent a sixth mass extinction event. If the national politicians want to fiddle while Rome burns, so be it. We don't really need the politicians of either side to get things done that will both create permanent domestic jobs and wean us off of fossilized energy.

      We could produce all of our basic needs locally including food and fuel if we really tried. The era of massive centralization is over and the communities that are the most self sufficient will come out of this period of great change better off than those that rely on centralized form of production. Like they said back in the 70's...Think Globally and Act Locally.
