They shouldn’t run on a platform of democratic socialism, which is a failed ideology. Every time they use that term they are proving their stupidity.

I'd like to thank the Michigan Democrats who kicked the socialist "Muslim Obama" Abdul El-Sayed to the curb and selected Gretchen Whitmer as the nominee for Governor of the great state of Michigan....

Some Dems GET IT....





That was a scary election.

Sharia in the US?


?

I am sure you are not suggesting electing a Muslim is the same as sharia law!


Not at all.

But that specific candidate?


Can you show where he has indicated sharia law is part of his platform?


Perhaps later. I just remember reading some disturbing reports about that candidate.

the democrats are having some serious problems right now. it looks like they really need to completely replace many of their candidates, or loose in Nov. it seems very telling when a relative who has spent the last two years freaking out about Trump. almost everyday posting multiple anti-Trump things. as well as posting a fair amount against anything Republican. always praised Obama, in everything he did. was a staunch supporter of Hillary. etc. voted Republican, and even made several posts about feeling they HAD to vote republican, and how everyone needed to vote Republican in their area in the election yesterday. even making comments like they puked over having to vote for a Republican. and how awful, sick and slimy it made them feel. seriously when people are feeling they MUST vote for the party they have well proven they HATE, that should be telling you, that your party has some very serious problems with their candidates. and that they need to change their candidates ASAP.

Who doesn't remember the barbarians from Norway, eh? How do they call them again, WikiKings? And that's not even a Baseball team... pathetic idiots in allegedly "long" boats.

They should have know better than coming up with this Thing thing though, why was it even a thing in the first place?

I can get behind the concept of met with henbane and berserks on mushrooms, of course! But this? Disgusting!

It's not that it is disgusting, it's that it is ignorant or misinformed. There is no democratic socialism anywhere in the world. There are a few parties scattered here and there, but no governments, no policies and no politics of democratic socialism, which is at best a contradiction in terms.

Sure. And the evil communist farmers from Dithmarschen are about to storm your house in Hamburg any day now.

How are the non-thing things going, Beatrix? What's new with you?

No, Ocasio-Cortez did not strike out. America stuck out. Independents and progressives far outnumber Democrats and Republicans combined. Not to mention that progressive ideals are mainstream, not liberal, as more than 60% of the people are in favor of them. So, why do independents and progressives come up short? Money. Pure and simple. The rich control elections through their proxies in government, our elected officials. They keep the people divided and frustrated so they can continue to control America. And we let them get away with it. Sad. And for those who don't get it, do your research. And if you still don't get what's happening, question your critical thinking skills. The future of America, your family, and your friends depend on it.

BTW, I should add that Ocasio-Cortez is not a socialist. She is a democratic socialist. Neither a social democrat or a democratic socialist is a socialist. Socialism is different political system altogether. People like Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders want certain segments of society free of capitalistic fraud and profit, segments that benefit everyone and everyone that should have the right to them: education and healthcare for example. When everyone uses a good or service, it only increases the cost to society when we have to pay out profits in addition to the cost of the goods and services. Don't you like to save money while having better access to something. I sure do.

I believe they call that putting lipstick on a pig. (No offense to pigs). The pig is not Ocasio-Cortez or Sanders either. It’s the attempt to hide socialism. I, for one, do not want to see the US become what Venezuela is today (which got that way by the state (government) taking over programs for the ”benefit” of the populace). Yep, lipstick on a pig.

She is the poster child for the real lunatics - Antifa, CNN, MSNBC, Mad Maxine Waters... basically the really far out crazy types. It's not a surprise that she is a loser.

Spoken like a true winner. That's right! Keep dehumanizing your perceived enemy with lame lables and altruistic adhoms (whooohooo!), everything is ok!

The Red Scare Effect? Priceless!

I do hope the Repubs maintain the majority in both the house and the Senate. The Dems at this stage have nothing to offer other than raise taxes and promote their socialist B.S.

and open borders.

What I am going to write is going to really upset some of the socialists on ATS but it would be great to have one admit this is true.

These losses by the candidates she endorses truly exposes how ill prepared and disconnected the entire democratic party is from their base. A few months prior to Ocasio-Cortez winning she was a bar tender. Yes...a bar tender. Now before some of you get upset please understand the context in which I am making this statement.

There is nothing wrong with bar tenders. However, it's a pretty big deal when said bar tender's next career is holding a congressional seat with absolutely ZERO experience. She ran a "values based" campaign which means she did nothing more than parrot the current leftist narrative of the mockingbird media. She literally has no definitive plans on how exactly to implement any of her outlandish ideas. She has never held a political office to understand how to implement policy. If the left think putting forward people of her low and inexperienced caliber is going to somehow help them then I can only sit back and shake my head in disbelief.

What I am not in disbelief of are the staggering losses the candidates she campaigned for experienced.
