Ocasio-Cortez Demonstrates She Does Not Know Jack About Money Or Economics

The problem with socialism is that sooner or later, you run out of other people’s money.

That quote is attributed to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and it demonstrates the fatal flaw in any non-voluntary collective system of government.

The problem today, though, is that the people running for public office and espousing the tenets of socialism cannot counter this truism with anything other than incoherent gobbledygook. Take the Democrats’ new darling from New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for example. When asked in an interview how she intended on paying for all her give away ideas, this…uh two-minute monologue served as her answer.

I think it’s that same exact thing. It’s that we … they say, “How are you gonna pay for it?” as though they haven’t used these same ways to pay for unlimited wars, to pay for trillion-dollar tax cuts and tax cut extensions. They use these mechanisms to pay for these things all the time. They only want to know … it just seems like their pockets are only empty when we’re talking about education and investing in human capital in the United States: education, healthcare, housing, and investing in the middle class. All the sudden, there’s nothing left. All the sudden, the wealthiest nation in the world, we’re just totally scarce. We have complete scarcity when it comes to the things that are most important. And so for me, I think it belies a lack of moral priority and that’s unfortunate. I think that a lot of these folks, especially those perhaps on the Democratic side, they don’t even see it, you know?… I legitimately think that they start kind of buying into conservative talking points. They get dragged into their court all the time. And I think it is because there is this really myopic and also just misunderstanding of politics as this flat, two-dimensional left-right thing.

Talk about a word salad. If it came with garlic and an avocado it could serve as roughage for a week. There’s nothing there that remotely talks about how to pay for pie in the sky ideals. No higher taxes, or cutting the defense budget. No higher tariffs to level the playing field or government and private enterprise partnerships. Not even subsidies.

And this is the savior of the Democratic party? Maybe the Dems need to go digging through the diamond mine of the inner cities another time or two. This one seems to have a lot of flaws.

    It seems to me that the answer is just as they say. Paraphrased, ie: We’ll spend other people’s money until it runs out. But we don’t care about that. We’ll be rich and protected.

    What almost everyone forgets, conveniently for many, is that the Constitution gives the Federal government only two responsibilities. The first, is to create, and enforce laws. The second, is to defend the country from foreign aggressors. When the Left doesn’t like a law, they ignore it, as in the case of our immigration law, whine about it, with demonstrations, or riots, while trying to change it, whether the People want it changed or not. The second responsibility, defend the country, is always under attack, because they don’t think it’s necessary! They prefer open borders, and smaller defense budgets, because we’re NOT a SOCIALIST country! If enough fellow Socialists flood the country, and are given the vote, legally, or illegally, they can take control of the country, and fulfill their Socialist dreams. The latest example of how well that works, is Venezuela. If you aren’t aware of what is happening there, you better find out, because that is what the Left wants for the US.

      I wonder what the political slant might be then of all those drivers who seem to willfully violate the motor vehicle laws, and seem to also treat so many other laws so nonchalantly.

    Yet another, in a long string of mentally retarded D-RATs. Really, can anyone name one current day, logical, sensible, D-RAT that exhibits common sense, speaks clearly, using facts as a basis? Me neither!

    What a stupid fool! She apparently got her degree (if any) from one of the fake schools that only expect the student to be a “minority” and sign up for a class. She obviously did not attend. If she received a degree, it was for signing up and not for learning anything.
