His green energy has been a bust because he basically does not understand how it truly works (mainly as supplemental -so far- not stand alone, horizontal vs. vertical in wind power, and the like). Taxing the rich, we can see will now not work (see France, where the money is leaving), and as to horses and bayonets, yes, we still use them. There are other places than just the Middle East where we are deployed and security does still mount up. Bayonets are still just as deadly as they were 300 years ago for CQC. So, all in all, your arguments are held to be invalid.
