    Looks like AOC is copying Hillary and is changing her "accent" when speaking to certain crowds. Most elite dems privately look down on blacks and think they are too dumb to figure this type of stuff out, just like telling them for years they need privilege points based on race because they can't get high enough test scores (instead of trying to help them get higher test scores).

    She says if a bartender can become a representative so can "you", but fails to tell them that she was hand selected for the part of representative, not too different from being placed in a role in a movie. See second video link.

    Dumb and stupid people like AOC should not be allowed to run for politics. There should be an IQ and pyscho test for all wishing to enter politics. And there should be an independant body that routinely tests and watches all politicians to see if they are still in a right frame of mind, expelling any that fail. Also, any politicians that lie to public should be expelled too. People all over world deserve to have sane and righteous people representing them.

    I’d probably agree with you unless someone can come up with a compelling reason why people who do not pay taxes on income earnt should have their voice heard.

    A wonderful vision if it manages to come to fruition. The world could use a little hope.



    TODAY, THE INTERCEPT launches “A Message From the Future With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” a seven-minute film narrated by the congresswoman and illustrated by Molly Crabapple. Set a couple of decades from now, it’s a flat-out rejection of the idea that a dystopian future is a forgone conclusion. Instead, it offers a thought experiment: What if we decided not to drive off the climate cliff? What if we chose to radically change course and save both our habitat and ourselves?

    What if we actually pulled off a Green New Deal? What would the future look like then?

    Just because a politician or party advocates for something, does not mean said party can deliver. If a US citizen really wants what AOC promises, they will need to find a better plan and smarter politicians, as well as a population who is fully behind the idea.

    Just like the magical dream of "affordable health care" was promised by Obummer, and he caused insurance policies premiums to skyrocket along with deductibles, and greatly reduced your choice of doctor. He PROMISED all of those things would NOT happen yet we got ALL OF THEM. He completely destroyed the free market in the insurance sector which actually caused prices to go HIGHER because in some states there is only ONE provider for the obamacare using plebs (like myself).

    What makes you think AOC and her merry band of a$$hats can deliver any better? You seem to say just talking about it is a good start, and I would agree. But you don't vote in imbeciles with plans that on the surface violate the constitution and are so cost prohibitive they could NEVER be implemented. By doing that, you not only waste time and money and violate the principles the country was founded upon, but you turn off future voters to trying to save the environment because they see it can't be done. So in the end, you wind up with less environmentally friendly terms.

    Anytime you think to yourself how the "government" can make things better, think again. They can only fu%k stuff up.

    Every time a politician has decided to enforce their utopian vision onto other people millions died. AOC is just another monster like Stalin or Mao. This time the darkness is hiding behind a pretty puppets face but under the mask is just another intolerant, totalitarian, sociopathic killer.

    If AOC has all the answers, then DJT should reopen diplomatic relationships with Venezuela and send AOC there as US ambassador.

    AOC can then live in a socialist state and Maduro can access the wealth of the "great new ideas" AOC has .....Maduro will be SHOOK at what she has to offer....everyone wins.

    Read the full article:

    In America, the Green New Deal proposed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would spell the end of many industries, such as aerospace and fossil fuel energy, with the government picking up the cost of employing displaced workers, and even those who cannot be bothered to work. Unlike gentrified progressives, Cortez and her allies are not detained by distinctions between “good” billionaires and “bad” ones—they don’t believe billionaires should exist at all. In this respect, they reflect the notion endorsed by Barry Commoner, one of the founding fathers of modern environmentalism, that “capitalism is the earth’s number one enemy.”

    The mixing of environmentalism and socialism may yet become a mortal threat to the current oligarchy. In the American plutocrat-funded Democratic Party, there is more support for socialism than for capitalism. There’s even a growing socialist movement among tech employees in Silicon Valley, much of it skeptical of democratic or constitutional norms such as the electoral college or the separation of powers. Some, like the New Yorker’s Benjamin Wallace-Wells, suggest that constitutional democracy as we know it—the very thing that brought modern elites into existence—may soon be impractical to meet the challenge.

    Decent article JulieW.

    I've always found it interesting that if an individual is part of a family fortune (the Rothchilds etc) or makes a fortune such as Bloomberg or Zuckerberg did, they tend to be left leaning and appear to act as if they know what's best for all mankind (note: note Personkind Mr Trudeau) and wish to share aka enforce their beliefs on society.

    In line with the article's theme, I agree that the industrial / Tech business owners see democracy as a obstacle to global and their personal nirvana where they run the planet...not governments via the people (well that's the democratic theory anyway). It made me think of the 1975 movie "Rollerball" which was set in 2018 where corporations now run the world. A conservative piece on the evils of collectivism.
