Here are some up-dates on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:
Climate change will end the world in 12 years.
There are parts of Alabama where some people have ringworm. It is immoral for a country to have billionaires and ringworm at the same time.
Here’s the sad part. 74% of Democrats would consider voting for her if she were old enough to run for president. This includes 17% who would definitely vote for her.
When the final history of the fall of the American civilization is written, she will definitely get a mention.
OCASIO-CORTEZ: “… I do think a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong.
A new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll finds that 74% of Democrats (and people who lean Dem) would consider voting for Ocasio-Cortez if she were old enough to run for president. (She’s 29; you have to be at least 35.)
That includes the 17% who would “definitely” vote for her.
I want to apply for the position of government monitor but I get to choose who I monitor…
Yeah, their talking point most often make no sense. Hell, my sister had ringworm when she was a kid, got it from a damn stray cat I think. Even in the 70’s, we cured it without a doctor and never had a relapse.
There’s many different ways, by the way. Everybody’s got to be covered. This is an un-Republican thing for me to say because a lot of times they say, ‘No, no, the lower 25 percent that can’t afford private’… I am going to take care of everybody. I don’t care if it costs me votes or not. Everybody’s going to be taken care of much better than they’re taken care of now … the government’s gonna pay for it.
How does it feel when people on the right adopt the lefts tactics of promising voters free stuff they know they can’t and have no intention of delivering to get elected while the majority of the party knows what they are doing and are ok with it to eke out a win?
In a thread in which people are mocking a politicians promises of socialism, I point out the politician that many support ALSO promised that which is mocked.
And you wonder how the left feels about it?
How does the right feel about it?
How do the posters mocking a Cortez for promising the same things Trump promised?
How do you feel about that?
Me? As a left leaning american who thinks health care is a right and that we should have a better universal health care system? I’m thrilled that both parties are embracing this, and thrilled that despite their hypocritical complaints on political message boards, americans are comfortable full throatedly supporting a Republican candidate who promises to deliver that very thing, costs be damned.
I believe it is akin to drinking water and food and shelter. Basic necessities. And providing basic necessities - along with other things mind you - are one of the responsibilities of an organized society.
The reason we agree to form a society and therefore, be governed to some degree, is, we expect something in return. We expect unified efforts that create infrastructure, we expect consolidated services that otherwise would be out of reach for use (ie: running water, sewer, fire protect etc…).
Health care is one of those things. Individually, few few of us could afford an MRI machine to help keep us healthy. together, we all can have access to it. One of the trade offs for agreeing to be governed in a society.
