@homersimpsun, Most of us would like to go green if it’s well laid out and attainable with a legit plan. Regardless of climate change, most of us feel pollution is bad and we have at least some moral obligation to take care of the earth. But I’ve seen how these gov grand gestures worked out before. Taiwan is a example, DPP wanted to shut down the nuclear plants, go green and made all these promises. It turns out it’s a lot harder, cost a lot of money, has direct impact to the economy that’s hard to counter. And we ended up where we are now burning more coal than ever and having to reopen nuclear plants. France and Macron are in trouble with the fuel tax law. Germany made all these plans to go green and they burned more coal as well. They did close the last coal mine, but all these coal miners lost their job and they haven’t found a way to get them new jobs.
And i’ll admit, I’m not 100% sure the wall will do that much. But i know we can build it. I know our current border fence is really old and easy to pass from broken off parts. I know we don’t have enough border security and Texans have taken the matter into their own hands and volunteer down there. I know where the drugs and guns are coming from. I’ve seen schools get overwhelmed with non English speakers and the schools don’t have resources to handle it. It’s a real issue. I’m sure there are racists who just want it to keep the mexicans out or whatever. But most of us know it’s a serious issue and want to do something about it.
