Yeah, "She then said that she does not believe all billionaires “like Bill Gates, for example, or Warren Buffett are immoral people."

So I guess the liberal billionaires are OK, but the conservative billionaires are immoral, in her eyes.

He and OC seem to share many personality traits.
And AOC says as many factually incorrect BS as Trump does per rant. Unfortunately too many only take a principles stand against BS when it comes from the other party....all too willing to accept BS nonsense from their own party.

LMAO...just looking at the many threads on AOC from the right...
The left is obsessed with her too.

Look at all the shows she has been on and all the coverage she gets from the MSM and leftist media.

NPR this morning had a thing on how amazing she is with so many Democrats falling in love with her. They compared her to FDR in that ability.

28 people having the same amount of wealth as 3.8 billion people in the world isn't fair, either.

To make it more fair, something needs to be done about finding out why so many people have so much trouble carrying their own weight in the world, while only some people find it easy to make more money than they know what to do with.

Well, at least she handed out Absolutions to billionaires that donate *properly* and engage in *right think*.

You of all people should appreciate the extensive actions that the very rich take to avoid taxation and so forth given all the Euro tax dodges in play.

That being said, you're buying into misdirection as if it's the billionaires that would end up paying for that Alabama healthcare and not the middle and upper middle class instead.

AOC is *all over* the media, she's on talk shows, late night shows, print media etc. She's been called the future of the democratic party yet you feign ignorance as to why that attracts political attention?

Don't you think that is problematic? I do. It doesn't have to be the case.

Threads like these continue to convince me that the GOP is being overrun by illiterates, intellectual lightweights, and fools convinced they aren't poor so much as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.

Much of what she says is nonsense, but it isn't much of a stretch to say that the increasing concentration of wealth in the hands of a very few is problematic, if not immoral.

They certainly are scaredy cats

The super rich at Davos are scared of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's tax proposal targeting the wealthy - https://www.cnbc.com/2019/01/22/davo...-proposal.html

I'd expect nothing less from the New Democratic Socialist Party


A look back in history is a sign of what this will create


You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity . . . . What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving . . . . The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else . . . .. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation . . . .You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

- Adrian Rogers, 1931




"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of 'liberalism,' they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened."

- Norman Thomas, former U.S. Socialist Presidential Candidate



Winston Churchill wrote that “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy. Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”

When can I expect the gop to start caring about the trillion dollar annual deficits trump created? When a Democrat takes over?

Can't spend money without revenue, and Republicans are just as bad as democrats when it comes to spending money they don't have
