Like I said, we've seen a lot of idealists come in to Congress but very few leave. That said, AOC seems like she could be the real deal. She just needs some age to temper her passion.

What drives me crazy with the left wing is that they refuse to acknowledge the reason why they have to many unwanted babies -- they keep trying to trying to divorce the idea of sex from babies, but one creates the other. So you have absolutely zero "safe" sex. It's true. No matter what you do, there is always a chance you can get pregnant, but they go on and on about how you ought to be able to have all the sex you want, guilt free, no consequences, safe sex ... and this is the logical outcome ...

BABY MURDER

... because there is always that chance. And the more sex you have, the more likely it is that whatever you do, your precautions fail because, as a woman, your body is designed to get pregnant. Hard fact to absorb, but true.

That's what I'm thinking too.

Give her 15 years in office and she'll actually be an effective legislator.

She's a little too outspoken right now. If she toned it down by half she'd be ok.

So she wants to kill off entire industries to be taken over by the same government she acknowledges being completely corrupt? This woman is confusing and things like this tell me she doesn't have a clue about much at all.

I've entertained this thought as well. By all accounts she's an intelligent woman and yet she presents herself as a buffoon to the media. It may hurt her credibility is the short term but it keeps her in the media and keeps people talking about the causes she cares about.

She'll be stroking the shaft and cradling the lobbyist balls within the next few years. No one who goes to washington stays honest.

If the Democrats would stop the bs with the dnc ,msm,racism,sexism,bad orangeman ,russians, defending the clintons & pelosi, lbgtvis movement, and solely concentrate in the corruptions in dc , then i could get behind them.

She did good there, hopefully she follows up with it and forgets about socialist ideals for the time being.

I have said it numerous times before. The democrats make no sense with wanting to increase govt power or socialism, until you get a hold of conflict of interest in govt FIRST .

That kind of mentality is why people like Pelosi, Schumer, and McConnell have so much power. We need more people challenging party leadership and calling out political corruption.

The fact that you have a problem with that just because of the messenger is very worrying.


What's worrying is she's a leader of a new party and sounds unintelligent and idealistic like every late 20's socialist.

Her ideas aren't presented well and aren't practical and she obviously doesn't understand the process in congress to get anything done.

She's like every other socialist.

When the "right" people are put in charge, it will all be OK.

I think it's refreshing that she's outspoken. It wasn't long ago that junior members of Congress actually mattered. But now the only opinions that are actually important are those of party leadership. We need to get back to the days where people mattered and not party.

How Congress Stopped Working

I agree with you but she get so much press she's basically a celebrity now. Everytime she speaks will be picked apart by both sides. She needs to understand the power she was given and that she's now the spokeswoman for her progressive party.

Would it be such a bad thing if she actually created a new party? The Leftists join that. The establishment Dems and neo-Cons become the new DNC. And the traditional Conservatives become the Republican Party.

That seems way better than the current two party system.

I agree with multiple parties and endorse it but I for sure don't support the progressives.

I'm not saying she's the end all, be all. But it sets an example for other junior members that you can break away from the party mold and get your message out there.

Even if she never grows in to her role it may set the table for other candidates on both sides that care more about their own ideals over party platform.

don't be lulled to sleep with the sudden attacks about a 'broken government'... her socialist/communist method-of-remedy will no doubt be organized in a Putsch like Purge of all the wayward office-holders...

and will undoubtedly welcome back the political backsliders into the 'Party' who pledge Loyalty to her or the 'DNC' rather than Loyalty to protect/defend the Constitution...
to my senses, this is a ruse to corral-the-Mavericks in the Congress into Loyal followers of the 'Party Apparatus'...
and Purge the House (and Senate) of the many with Dirty-Hands...the only ones' to be prosecuted by an endless 'Mueller Investigation' will be those Legislators who promote Statism or Nationalism & the Trump-Populist voting bloc
