HOW DARE YOU WANT TO LIVE YOUR OWN LIFE!  One of our two political parties clearly believes that the right of individual choice is a threat to the social order and may even raise temperatures in marginalized communities.  This crowd has plans for us.  From the New York Post:

They want you … to keep paying record-high gas prices!

Americans will have to endure pain at the pump indefinitely in the name of the “liberal world order,” a top economic adviser to President Biden said Thursday — hours after Biden himself said US drivers would have to shell out the big bucks for “as long as it takes” for Ukraine to defeat Russia’s invasion.

During an appearance on CNN Thursday, National Economic Council director Brian Deese was asked by anchor Victor Blackwell: “What do you say to those families who say, ‘Listen, we can’t afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months, if not years. This is just not sustainable’?”

“What you heard from the president today was a clear articulation of the stakes,” Deese answered. “This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm.

“But at the same time, what I’d say to that family and to Americans across the country is you have a president, an administration that is going to do everything in its power to blunt those price increases and bring those prices down,” Deese added.

Hours earlier, Biden was asked by New York Times reporter Jim Tankersley during a news conference in Madrid: “The war has pushed prices up. [Oil] could go as high as $200 a barrel, some analysts think. How long is it fair to expect American drivers and drivers around the world to pay that premium for this war?”

“As long as it takes,” Biden answered. “Russia cannot, in fact, defeat Ukraine and move beyond Ukraine. This is a critical, critical position for the world.”

Republicans and conservatives expressed outrage over Deese’s comments, which Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called “completely out of touch” on Twitter.

“Don’t believe that rising gas prices are a result of Biden’s bad leadership?” wrote Pennsylvania Senate Candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz. “Well, his Director of National Economic Council will set the record straight for you. He calls it, ‘the future of the liberal world order.”’

The Biden Admin has forgotten they work for the American people and not the ‘liberal world order,'” said Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.).

“Notice how cold Biden’s adviser is about the pain of the American people,” tweeted author David Limbaugh. “No compassion that liberals are so falsely famous for. It’s a mini-clinic in statism. Like Biden, he’s saying, ‘Subjects of government exist for the state, not vise versa.'”

COMMENT:  All this is caused by Biden's crazy order, issued on his inauguration day, to essentially freeze the energy industry and move this country from energy independence to energy dependence.  The president is controlled by the environmental fanatics, and theirs has become our national religion.
