Progressive Views: The Insidious Project 2025

Project 2025 (P25) is the published plan for an “ideal” America if a conservative wins the 2024 presidential election; they call it the “Mandate for Leadership: The Conservative Project.” P25 is spearheaded by the Heritage Foundation and is supported by more than 80 organizations. You need to be aware of P25 because it’s a plan for how the next Republican administration plans to gut our federal institutions and remake the nation into an authoritarian state.

Progressive Views: Just Say “No” (Again) to School Vouchers

Gov. Greg Abbott is boasting that he now has the votes to pass his “school choice” voucher program during next year’s session of the Texas Legislature. He’s confident because during the recent primary he ran a successful “revenge campaign” against incumbents from his own party who helped defeat vouchers during the last legislative session. This, despite consistent polling that shows a majority of Texans do not support vouchers. Democratic legislators will be our only line of defense to defeat them once again.

Progressive Views: High Gasoline Prices – Who Should We Blame?

World markets determine the prices for most energy commodities with oil being the most important. The price of oil is the main factor affecting the price of gasoline and makes up about 50% of the cost of a gallon of gasoline. The other significant factors are margins, transportation, taxes, and refining operating costs. World crude demand is now about 102 million barrels per day and still growing slightly. We must move to renewables without forgetting the petroleum work

Progressive Views: Cryptocurrency: A Scam that’s Costing Us All

Cryptocurrency mining companies can make more money from shutting down their power-hungry server farms, earning a payment from ERCOT (the entity that manages the Texas power supply), than they can make from generating actual crypto. Crypto mining is a scam enabling some private companies to make cartloads of money off the backs of Texas ratepayers and it is wrong.

Progressive Views: Possible Clean Energy Solutions

Energy options such as hydrogen, geothermal, and fourth-generation nuclear power plants can help us get to net zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2050. While it is the most abundant element in the universe, hydrogen has issues as well as being expensive, but it could be used in special applications. Geothermal is sustainable, environmentally friendly, renewable and always on. Nuclear energy can replace fossil fuel plants with zero carbon technology and be much safer and smaller.

Progressive Views: Diversity is a Strength

DEI simply levels the playing field, so qualified people from less-than-optimum backgrounds have a fair chance to succeed. Helping those that have and are suffering discrimination is a strength, not a weakness. Diversity, equity, and inclusion programs help create a fairer environment to provide opportunities for individuals who need help. Attacking DEI is just another effort to divide the country. The essential elements for a democracy to function are civility and truth but we must also care about those less fortunate.
