WATCH THIS VIDEO AND YOU WONDER WHY YOU SHOULD BE SCARED OF DEMOCRAT SOCIALISTS …
Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips took a trip to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s district to ask her supporters what they thought of her Democratic-Socialist agenda. They were all for free stuff, they were just unsure how and who was going to pay for all that free stuff. These clueless individuals think government grows money on trees and that is who will pay for all their free stuff. They don’t even realize that it will be their neighbor who pays for it. Sadly, they don’t even know what conservatism is, except for some ridiculous definition they were provided by a socialist professor or the liberal media. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s supporters seem as ignorant to the facts as she is.
All you socialist lovers, how’s it working for the people in Venezuela … how about the donkeys?
Ocasio-Cortez gained notoriety nationwide not just for her youth, but for her unabashed embrace of Democratic Socialism.
In her official platform, Ocasio-Cortez offers support for free college, “housing as a human right”, “medicare for all,” and a mandatory minimum living wage.
Wanting to know if her supporters liked the idea of Democratic Socialism, and if they’d support the government offering these services for free, I headed to Ocasio-Cortez’s district, in Astoria, NY.
People on the street were quick to offer support for Ocasio-Cortez’s brand of socialism, and overwhelmingly supported her vision for the district.
They were more hesitant, however, to offer ideas for how to pay for all of the free things that Ocasio-Cortez is promising.
“I don’t know where the money would come from, but they can figure it out,” one person stated confidently.
“Oh, God… Us, I guess,” conceded another.
One supporter seemed to think Americans would be okay with paying higher taxes, saying “with a good idea, and a good reason to spend their tax money, people wouldn’t actually mind paying more taxes.”
Another admitted that they’re not quite sure what it is that they like about Ocasio-Cortez’s economic philosophy, but insisted that “I just know that democratic socialist is better than conservative.”
What would these people think when asked how socialism is working in Venezuela? Watch the full video
MORE FROM THE UNHINGED LEFT …
From the Washington Examiner, comes more from Rep. ‘Mad Max” Maxine Waters and her over the top theatrics. This time she says that Americans should be out in the streets screaming’ for President Donald Trump’s head. Really Maxine? Is this before or after they should be in the streets cheering for the great economy, the record low black, Hispanic unemployment, the record level of participation in the work force, the over 25,000 DOW, or the tax cuts that put more money in our pockets. Take a look around you Maxine, things are actually good in America, unless you are on the unhinged, whining LEFT. Trump is winning and that means America is winning, Maxine then stated, “He can call me whatever he wants do. He does not intimidate me, and I’m not gonna stop talking about him.” Actually Maxine Trump wants you to keep talking, You have become the face of the Democrat party and no sane individual would ever vote you back into power. But who knew you were a capitalist? Maybe you folks on the LEFT might want to provide Americans with your definition of capitalist.
President Donald Trump is Making America Great Again and the likes of Maxine Waters don’t want that to happen.
Liberal Rep. Maxine Waters Wednesday urged Americans to take to the streets and scream for an end to President Trump’s term, endorsed impeachment and vowed that the White House won’t intimidate her.
Talking on CNBC, she said, “I think he’s dangerous,” and added, “I don’t know why people take it. I think Americans should be out in the streets screaming to the top of their voice. Do something. Make something happen.”
The California Democrat was interviewed by host John Harwood during a CNBC event and poked at Trump, who regularly pokes at her, and she suggested that racism was involved. She also claimed that the president was employing tactics against his critics suggested by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
NOT GOOD NEWS FOR THE DEMOCRAT PARTY …
As reported at The Hill, a recent Hill.TV/HarrisX American Barometer poll stated that 76% stated that they would not vote for a “socialist” political candidate, while only 24% said they would. This comes in sharp contrast to the Democrat party that moves further and further to the LEFT. So much so that a Socialist nearly became the party’s Presidential candidate. The liberal media has touted Democrat socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the darling of the Democrat party. Even DNC chair Tom Perez has called her the future of the Democrat party. If that is the case, the Democrat party does not appear to have much of a future. In their echo chamber, the Progressives and socialists believe that America is on their side. This poll shows that type of thought could not be further from the truth. The poll shoes that even Democrats who like Bernie Sanders, who is a socialist, and voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, would not vote for a socialist. The Democrat party is in for an upcoming Civil War for the soul of its party.

In a new Hill.TV/HarrisX American Barometer poll released Tuesday, an overwhelming majority of respondents, 76 percent, said they would not vote for a “socialist” political candidate, while only 24 percent of those polled said they would vote for a socialist candidate.
Ocasio-Cortez is one of several candidates running for office this year that labels themselves as a socialist. The Democratic Socialists of America told The Associated Press that 42 candidates at the federal, state and local levels have earned a formal endorsement from the group.
Although Sanders remains highly popular among Democratic voters (and Americans generally), in the American Barometer survey, 64 percent of Democratic respondents said they would not vote for a “socialist.” Among respondents who said they voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 general election, 59 percent said they would not support a self-described socialist.
High-ranking Democrats have generally reacted either neutrally or negatively to the idea of socialism rising within the party.
DEMOCRAT ARE OUT OF TOUCH WITH AMERICA …
In a recent NBC, WSJ poll, 56% of American polled believe that the Democrat party is out of touch with Americans. With Democrats wanting to abolish ICE, being more pro-illegal than US citizen, being against the Trump tax cuts, being against an economy what has lowest numbers ever for black and Hispanic. Democrats are making Democrat socialist and political know-nothing novice Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the future of their party. Even Democrats are having an issue with that.
42 Democrats socialist are running in 2018 and the Democrat talking head in the below video blows it off as nothing. 42 folks, that is an astonishing number. They claim that it is only a few fringe Democrats that are calling to abolish ICE. Really? Since when has the Democrat Senator from New York Kirsten Gillibrand been a fringe candidate?
It is obvious that the Democrat party has lost touch with Americans, and they fact that they cannot see or accept this is the very reason why they cannot get over the fact that Donald Trump defeated Hillary.
Former Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman Endorses Rep. Joe Crowley … Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hurts the party, Congress and even America
Joe Lieberman Calls for Rep. Joe Crowley to run as Independent against Ocasio-Cortez in November …
As reported at Mediaite, former Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman has penned an OPED calling for voters in New York to vote for Joe Crowley Over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The issue, Ocasio-Cortez defeated Crowley recently in the Democrat primary. However, even though she has been prematurely anointed the face of the Democrat party, her recent gaffs have been monumental. The 28 year old political novice has shown in a recent Firing Line interview that she is not ready for prime time, nor has a grasp of knowledge of the issues. She even struggled with economic issues when she supposedly graduated with an economics degree. Mayne it was economics for socialists. That being said, many center and establishment Democrats are worried that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not the face of the party, but the wedge that will divide it. Lieberman Endorses Rep. Joe Crowley and called for voters to send him back to DC. Lieberman states that a Ocasio-Cortez’s victory “seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s victory over top Democrat Joe Crowley was stunning and the candidate herself has been embraced as symbolic of a new generation of Democratic leaders.
She has received criticism in recent days over her Firing Line interview, but she’s now getting what can only be called a massive publicity gift: a former Democrat-turned-Independent who spoke at the 2008 Republican National Convention calling on voters to reject her candidacy.
Lieberman has an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal arguing at the top Ocasio-Cortez’s victory “seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party.”
And that’s why Lieberman is now calling on voters to vote for Crowley on the Working Families Party ticket (Lieberman himself famously lost his 2006 Senate primary but won as a third party candidate). This, of course, is dependent on whether Crowley actually wants to do it, but Lieberman writes in detail why Ocasio-Cortez should not be elected to Congress:
It would appear that the Democrats are in the midst of their own Civil War, Progressives/Socialists vs. establishment Democrats.
