Can the new left-wing NY-14 congresswoman AOC win citywide for mayor, public advocate, etc. one day despite S.I. and other remaining conservative neighborhoods?

She's better off running for the U.S. Senate or maybe get appointed to a Cabinet post.

Wow, on so many levels. But if so can you lead the Staten Island forces of conservatives against the liberals of NYC so we can finally see if your really the tough guy you have purported to be all these years.. If this civil war did come...

She's more likely to wind a citywide election than statewide.

She could very easily run for Mayor in '021. She now has more name recognition than most of the prior contenders (Johnson, Mark-Viverito, Stringer, Williams, etc.).

I’m 100% in when it happens. Been to war 4 times, I’ve nothing to prove. This is not about being a tough guy. I swore to defend our Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic until the day I die.

So your agaignt Trump doing a run around the Congress ? He is the one violating the constitution. I am a happy person so what you believe is your own affair. I would suggest however, you shed your worldview that you have had for years here on CD of an impending war. You know why ? Because it insulates you from seeing those who you currently see as potential enemies from instead being potential friends. It does you no service.

Now Airborn guy I offer you a brotherly hug. No need for war. See liberals and progressives as your neighbors and not as your enemies.

They are my friends and neighbors. I begrudge no man. I’m actually a very happy person with many hobbies, pursuits, emotions, etc. People who know me see me with my daughters and comment how they can’t understand how I reconcile the “two me’s”.

It was like this right up to and during the Civil War. I am reading Sherman’s memoirs as we speak here. The respect afforded enemies back then is astounding to witness in his letters and recollections (and those of others I’ve previously read). But make no mistake, should the need to defend our Constitution arise from within, we stand ready and will do what men like Sherman did in the 1860’s.

I’m going to dinner at a very liberal friend’s restaurant tonight. We’ll drink together, have laughs and hug afterwards knowing full-well where each’s allegiances lie. Mine to a strict reading of the Constitution, his to socialist claptrap. And yes, we both understand what we’d do to each other if we ever had to.
