    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

    Why are so many Democrats excited about her?

    She's like the left's answer to Sarah Palin.




    After hitting the interview circuit, it became painfully clear that she has no idea what the fuck she's talking about.

    Plus, she's a self-identified socialist, and that's the last label Democrats should want for themselves if they're looking to win blue-collar America back.


    And now she's excluding the media from town hall events.

    Democrats *need* young and Progressive candidates to rally the disenchanted American voters who are sick of being stuck with (1) a terribly expensive healthcare system that Obamacare only scratched the surface to reform, and which the GOP wants to pertuate absent the restrictions of insurance companies making as much money as possible off the public and the subsidies for lower income citizens that Obamacare put in place , and (2) the now-historically high cost of secondary education for middle class and below citizens in the post World War II era given how states have essentially abandoned making a 4-year degree at a decent state university affordable a huge swath of their residents.

    In fact, I am laughing st how much Fox News and right-wingers are going after AOC, trying paint her as crazy socialist even though her position on these two issues are favored by a majority of voters. I see the right-wings full-throated attacks on her like when the Catholic Church publicly calling for a ban on movies it believes are “blasphemous”; it’s strong public criticism brings attention to those movies, spurring more to want to see what is so supposedly awful about.

    So AOC and campaign staff are probably elated over the attention right-wing media is bringing to her candidacy. To which they are probaly collectively doing something like this:



    So, on behalf of her and her campaign, let me extend the following to Druff for starting this thread:

    Is she calling herself a socialist? I thought she considered herself a democratic socialist. There's a difference.

    Anyway socialism has become more popular in America due to the same forces that elected Trump.

    Freeloaders my ass. People who work and pay taxes are not freeloaders. And contrary to your slurs, most people do work and pay taxes. The working class is taxed about the same as in other countries but the rich are taxed far less. As a result the US is the only wealthy country that doesn't guarantee health care and where college education is so expensive as to be unobtainable for many without a mountain of debt. Why can every other country do this but America can't? Let me let you in on a little secret:

     
    America is a scam

    College can be free! Join the military.

    Ever hear of the G.I bill?

    Hmm there's a novel idea . Give the country 4 years active duty and 4 years reserve duty and get a college education and health care. Wow! Who would of thought working could provide so much

    there just arent a lot of young centerests or right wingers coming up the ranks.

    which is pretty much exactly what you can expect when concepts like retirement and home ownership are mathematically impossible even if you somehow remove student loan debt from the table.

    her crowd knows they are fucked and the election of trump proved to them that radical change is possible if enough people sign off on it,

    and unfortunately for the right wing AND centerist left, they arent offering solutions to actual middle class problems. these kids openly embracing socialism are the logical retort.

    Meagan Day, a Democratic Socialist and writer for the socialist magazine Jacobin writes:

    "I’m a staff writer at the socialist magazine Jacobin and a member of DSA, and here’s the truth: In the long run, democratic socialists want to end capitalism. And we want to do that by pursuing a reform agenda today in an effort to revive a politics focused on class hierarchy and inequality in the United States. The eventual goal is to transform the world to promote everyone’s needs rather than to produce massive profits for a small handful of citizens."

    “Social democratic reforms like Medicare-for-all are, in the eyes of DSA, part of the long, uneven process of building that support, and eventually overthrowing capitalism.”

    Was pretty shocking when she primaried Joe Crowley - the guy who thought he would be the next Dem speaker after Pelosi. Exciting for young people in congress.
