    Who cares. I mean if the freaking Palins can get some of that TV cash then why not AOC?

    There are probably way worse things to watch if you choose to do so.

    Given what we know of ethics and economics from a wealth of cluster fucks last century... I think that label is pretty well deserved unless you just enjoy being willfully ignorant. Whatever, though.

    No. There are threads on her because you guys are too busy being mindless partisans, instead of actually looking into what she says.

    "Its OK, she'll gve 70% of it away to prove that she practices what she preaches, I'm sure."

    She proposed a 70% MARGINAL tax after the 10 MILLIONTH dollar you make. That is VERY different from a 70% tax. And you guys keep repeating this crap.
    This thread is retarded. She isn't a communist. She isn't anti-capitalism or anti-money. She wants the rich to payer higher taxes and for the government to reset its spending priorities; less money on tax cuts for the rich and wars, and more on health, education, and the environment.
    Wow. So insane.

    Does anyone here even knows what "socialist" means?
    Could he explain it to me like I was a kid and without copypasting from wiki?

    What she says is well documented. IF she's going to say dumb shit and be in public office, then she'll get called for it. Thats why we pretend stories about Trumps ice cream habits matter, right?

    I've never seen white knighting for a politician like this, ever. She has more blooper tapes on youtube than Seinfeld and she's been in the public eye for what, 6 months?

    People use the word today as if we're talking about Soviet Russia. Words like globalism, liberal, progressive, socialism, and conservative shouldn't be 'bad words'. It's stupid.
    We already have "socialist"" programs in our government, and they have by far done the country good. These labels are unnecessary and are just distractions

    Ironic isn't the word I'd choose. Poking fun at people for pointing out that the most powerful man in the world is a raving lunatic with the intellect of a 12 year old and the maturity of a 5 year old, and then obsessing constantly over a first term House Rep of above average intelligence and temperament.

    It honestly makes me strain to even imagine how these fuckwits would react to a Trump-like character on the left.

    What she said is well documented, what it is not, is well read or understood. (By you, and a lot of others here)

    Lol White knighting? Instead of throwing out dumb lines that 15 year olds use, you could actually try and back up your point with facts. You guys keep saying "she says dumb shit" while not even accurately relaying her points. You listen to 3 second clips from FOX news and think you heard all you need to heard.

    YOU just dropped the "70% tax" thing again that I keep hearing conservatives say, and it isn't correct. She didn't say that. Just like she didn't say she wants open borders. Now you can disagree with her ideas, but you have to actually know what they are first.

    I am pretty sure AOC more likely to support her or Bernie Sanders then Warren. Tulsi is suffering from near zero media attention much like Bernie before her. The establishment is really out to push their chosen people. People like Kamala Harris she is already starting to hint on working on alt to medicare for all, Amy Klobuchar and Booker.

    Big money on Kamala Harris then Booker. Congressional leader Nancy Pelosi been leaning towards Kamala Harris though they don't see eye to eye on a number of issues. Warren campaign already on life support little interest in her.

    A larger state will only break it apart quicker. More socialism and more government just means more power for the disparate groups to be fighting over.

    AOC better not step on no toes, jocking her style.

    Good point. You are so demographically diverse now it is bound to happen. It was always inevitable once America went fron essentially a white ethnostate to what it is now.

    Only limited self rule and more state autonomy will probably save it. That way people can get behind being American but irs value will lesson but paying taxes and being s country is better foe the individuals who segregate themselves in certain areas. Im betting on a US split of south western states eventually to mexico or a latino star. You need less government i guess

    Yeah, the Aztlan secession looks like it will be the first one, if I'd have to guess.
