Elder Patriot – A month ago she was an out of work bartender. Now she is the new darling of the Democratic Party espousing unscionably inconsistent policy positions on everything from healthcare to tuition to climate change to the economy.
Call her the Anti-Trump. Coupled with the artificially inspired hatred for President Trump, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the beneficiary of the societal shift to form over substance.
She is being hailed by economically illiterate Democrats who comfort themselves that everything they covet is possible simply by voting to confiscate other people’s money.
Even as our personal economic conditions are improving due to the lower tax policies of President Trump, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to reverse all of that.
Even as revenues to the federal government are the highest they’ve ever been due to the stimulus both entrepreneurs and large corporations are benefitting from, OAC wants to put an end to economic expansion. How will that help pay for her promises?
It was only weeks ago that Ocasio-Cortez was calling for a 70% tax rate on billionaires to fund her outrageously expensive healthcare and free tuition for all, as well as her “Green New Deal” initiatives.
Now she claims that the very existence of those same billionaires, who she ignorantly claimsarn enough to fund all of those programs she’s selling, is immoral in and of itself.
Which is it, little Miss Genius? Where I come from, it’s hard to consider anyone who pays the entire bill to save the world (as she sees it) to be immoral.
Ocasio-Cortez likes to point to her economics degree as though she’s smarter than the rest of us.
Sorry, child I’ll go you two better. I have an MBA and 40 years of real world experience in both corporate America and as an entrepreneur. I may not have all the answers but I can recognize a charlatan when I see one.
Unfortunately, according to a new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll, 74% of Democrats don’t see that. That’s the percentage who would consider voting for her for president if she were old enough to run. This includes voters who say they only lean Democrat.
It’s impossible to argue with someone who knows so much that isn’t true but who stokes the allegiance of her followers with promises that seduce them.
“There's a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right,” @AOC says in response to criticism that she’s made factual errors. https://t.co/sKf3sHl9F6 pic.twitter.com/xKc2eB7GEk

Facts stating the costs associated with her grandiose spending plans do matter as do the economy stifling taxation plan she is proposing that will quickly shrink government revenues as well as the ability of workers to provide for themselves and their families.
But let’s not let facts get in the way when OAC is busy seducing her fellow grasshoppers:
That cartoon was released in 1934. We once taught our children the importance of being a contributing member of society. That was before our educational system was overrun by Marxist indoctrinaires whose sole goal has been to turn our children into government dependents.
The output of our schools are now so brainwashed that even the thought of Making America Great Again triggers them. Let that sink in. This is what we’re up against.
