To the Editor: Promises, promises and all free is the cries from the Democrats for 2020. Right, and as always, someone else is going to pay, not you and me, someone else. Where have we heard that one before?

Sounds like carnival barkers gone mad, the shady used-car salesmen that cause that queasy feeling in your gut so why are we even listening to the current crop of Democrat candidates?

Then there is the “Green New Deal,” are they kidding? Just imagine the cost of heating your homes in winter only with electricity even if they could generate enough to replace the fossil-fuel systems, which they couldn’t, or build enough affordable electric cars without tax money subsidizing them, which they couldn’t.

Besides costs it would take manufacturing green energy sources 20 years to build enough “stuff” to replace what we would need to replace.

According to them, we only have 10 years left, so do the math.

There are just so many holes in their proposals that even a casual glance tells us it is unworkable. Don’t waste your votes on nonsense, Democrats offer you nothing of worth.
