Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – A Symptom Of A Terminal Illness For Our Nation

It is clear that there is currently a very serious rift in our country, both politically and morally.

One woman has become the figurehead of a movement for change and won a stunning – as in completely unexpected – election to Congress last year.

She has been vilified and glorified depending on the side of the aisle, but it is her complete dismissal of the status-quo that has catapulted her into the spotlight.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest person ever elected to Congress, winning a seat to represent New York’s 14th district over a ten-term incumbent in 2018 at just 29 years old

She has become a sort of mascot for the Democrat Party – and a symptom of everything that is wrong with the course our nation is headed on.

Cortez’s victory was not only notable for her age and lack of experience in politics – after all, she was a virtual unknown in a heated political climate.

But her popularity is the most concerning aspect of her place in Congress.  Part celebrity, part naïve girl on a mission to change the entire foundation of the U.S., Cortez is real proof that Socialist indoctrination is taking hold.

She spent time working on Bernie Sanders’ campaign for president in 2016, and she is completely hooked on his plan for a Socialist takeover of America.

Our nation’s youth have spent several years living under progressive indoctrination and becoming disenchanted with business-as-usual.

They have, therefore, become attracted to Democratic Socialism – and Ocasio-Cortez — thinking that ridding the nation of centuries of tradition will fix all the imagined ills of society.

Ocasio-Cortez has big ideas for change.  But the problem is, she doesn’t seem to understand the implications of the changes she proposed, or even how to achieve what she is suggesting.

We can guess where she stands on most of the issues facing our nation today, but her talking points often shine a spotlight on her youth and lack of life experience.

Cortez is fighting for the Socialist idea of universal healthcare, supporting Medicaid for all. “Almost every other developed nation in the world has universal healthcare. It’s time the United States catch up to the rest of the world…,” she states on her official website.

But like other members of her party, she doesn’t see the drawbacks of this type of system.  No choice in doctors, little involvement in our own healthcare choices, and government profit over patient need, like we’ve seen in the U.K. and other nations where the government chooses who lives or dies.

Cortez, who is still paying tens of thousands of dollars in student loans from attending Boston University, earning a degree in economics and international relations, wants free college for all.

Yet, despite her degree, she doesn’t seem to understand the economy – who will be paying for her policies, or how.

Even liberal CNN’s Anderson Cooper stated that her policies are unrealistic, and asked how the country would pay for them, in a 60 Minutes interview.

She gives no real answer, only saying that she is “persuasive” and that “change takes time.”

She wants a Federal Jobs Guarantee, with a universal minimum wage of $15 an hour and an easy path to citizenship for illegal immigrants who would receive the same benefits as citizens.

She says there is a difference between “jobs and well-paying jobs,” but doesn’t see the looming economic collapse if everyone is universally employed at a high rate of pay – no matter their skill level.

She also doesn’t have an answer for the small, mom-and-pop private business owners who will go belly-up if her dreams become a reality…

Ironic since her father was a small business owner and her Puerto Rican mother struggled to earn a paycheck by cleaning houses.

Ocasio-Cortez herself worked as a bartender until she entered Congress and laments her days struggling to pay the huge deductibles of the Affordable Care Act and her bills.

She appears to fall into the category of young Socialists who want everything free because the work required to earn it is too difficult – and whose arguments are contradictory at best.

Ocasio-Cortez’s most infamous plan for change is that of the “Green New Deal,” which incorporates many of her desired policy changes, and for which even some fellow Democrats are opposed.

It would be implemented over a 20-year period, wherein the U.S. would significantly minimize carbon emissions and other greenhouse gases.

Electric cars would be subsidized by the government, and most of the population would live in neighborhoods where walking and biking were the main forms of transit.

Factories would use recycled goods, not natural resources, and almost all energy would come from renewable resources like wind farms.

She even wants to change the way our food is produced and transported.

So again, we ask, where is the money coming from?

The problem is not only one of economics.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to change the entire infrastructure of the U.S., change the way we do business…and have done business for generations.

Farming, education, public transportation, goods and services.  She wants change on a scale that is not possible in the suggested timeframe and is not popular with the majority of the American people who believe that hard work and perseverance build character.

It’s a frightening start to what appears to be a desire for a very significant global legacy.

All of this from a young woman who is now a bit of a celebrity with a good salary, the best insurance in the nation given to members of Congress, and all the trappings that she denounces as the evils of capitalism.

Perhaps the most contradictory aspect of her platform is that she wants to change the future for our nation’s youth so they don’t have to struggle.

But she is rabidly anti-life, and in fact, recently questioned whether we, as a society, should continue to have children who “drain our resources.”

Mommy Underground recently reported on her absurd ideas about children and climate change, and her comments are mind-boggling.

For now – thankfully – Ocasio-Cortez’s grand plans aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.

It is frightening – and a symptom of a rapidly-spreading disease – that the pie-in-the-sky whims of a young and naïve Socialist wannabe are even being taken seriously.

But that has been the plan of progressives and Socialists for generations…tell the people they can have everything they want on the government’s dime.

It’s all free, and all we have to do is take the bait.

What do you think of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s unattainable platform?  Do you think she’ll be a lifelong politician, or is she just a trendy figurehead?
