I support her I like to see young people using their voice to initiate change , and she hasn't had time to be corrupt by corporations like everybody else in Congress.

It's also OCDS. She's single handly breaking down barrirs for future generations of women who come next they'll no longer believe that they are in Cable of having a voice from a young age.

It's pretty simple. The naysayers (and that is a very polite term I'm using) just can't deal with the fact she doesn't conform to the image or persona of a typical member of Congress - which is someone who is Anglo-Caucasian, affluent, older. And she won't play their game. And more often then not - opens a can of whoop-*** on them.

C_D is loaded with women of this type, from both sides of the aisle. Maybe we should be in charge?

Not as dumb as the people in her district who elected her. I'm sure there are many liberals/democrats who are remaining silent for now, but who are as displeased with her nitwit proclamations and agenda as republicans are. If upstart politicians like her catch on, the Democrats will suffer fragmentation and a severe loss of power in elections.

Those of us who want to see the conservative forces extinguished from power in our country, should recognize the serious threat this woman and others like her pose to our hopes of restoring our nation. You'd almost think that she was being promoted by the right-wingers, to throw a monkey-wrench into the works of the Democratic Party.

I think that when she’s eligible to become president, she would probably get elected. She’s smart, young, energetic, and is against racism, sexism, and homophobia! She also has plans for our economy that will help everyone in our country.
I don't hate her. I don't really hate anybody. I'm honestly just amazed that anybody gives a crap about Alexandria Ocasio Cortez says! She just got to Congress. She's got a ton to learn. The woman needs to go back and take Middle School Civics/US Government class. She's dumb. Really dumb. She seems to be pure idealism and zero realism. She doesn't have answers to questions about, "How would we pay for that?" She has absolutely no idea how we'd pay for all of her blue sky bright ideas. She just seems to think that if we just want it bad enough, it will just magically happen.

AOC has charisma. She may even run for someday. But she desperately needs to shut up and make a point of learning and growing. Even the worst possible debater from the GOP would make AOC of today look like a complete idiot for the entire duration of every single debate. She has an unending supply of gaffs. Case in point:

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez for President 2032

... because the world will have ended by then according to AOC, so why the hell not, right?

I'm not really on the Left of the Right, but I can definitely see why the Right has such a great time making fun of AOC. It's exactly the same reason that the Left has such a great time making fun of Trump ... except that at this moment Trump is actually smarter than her.
