Maxine Waters is known for her asinine views on, well, just about everything. However, this is one of the first times in my memory that a sitting representative actually openly threatens a private industry with "socializing"/"nationalizing". Does this barking-mad moonbat really think that the government can somehow do things more efficiently, once they've seized control of one of our most important industries? Or is she simply throwing some red meat to her loony constituents back home? Methinks that given her track record (# 35) of hard-left legislating, the truth lies somewhere in between Marx and Mugabe, next door to Chavez.
We conservatives have long believed most of the Dems to be closet socialists in disguise, but they are beginning to get bolder. Between Hillary Clinton's constant harping on nationalizing health care, and her race to protectionist policies with Barack Obama, it seems our gilded (gelded?) class has entered a new age of economic idiocy.
Hit the link for the video. Watch it.
That is right, she would be about socializing/nationalizing the oil industry. They want it for health care, why not oil? Hell, why don't we just forget about that whole FREEDOM thing and go ahead and make this a communist nation? Yes, what a great idea. I mean, who wouldn't want Maxine Waters deciding how there lives should be run?
This line is exactly right:
We conservatives have long believed most of the Dems to be closet socialists in disguise, but they are beginning to get bolder.
Wake up people.
