WHY WE HAVE TO TAKE ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ SERIOUSLY

– “The Chosen One.”

Since she began running for Congress, most Republicans have considered Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as nothing more than a joke. Her gaffs when talking to the press have become legendary (see “Youth Will Have It’s…Oops!”). The fact she was elected and installed as the youngest member of the House of Representatives as a “Democrat-Socialist” should be noted. She may seem to be naive, but she is being warmly received by liberals as the savior of her party.

Her latest gaffs have gone viral, particularly her assertion the world is coming to an end in twelve years if we do not address climate change, as well as her proposal to tax people up to 70% for earnings above $10 million, representing a bold redistribution of the wealth which would likely upset the economy. Whereas the Right giggles at her statements, the Left takes her rather seriously, and this is what should concern Republicans. A new poll produced by Axios/SurveyMonkey contends 74% of Democrats would consider voting for Miss Ocasio-Cortez for president if she was eligible (you have to be at least 35 years old to run for president, she is only 29). The poll also claims she is more popular than Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and almost as popular as Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Axis was just founded in 2016 by former employees of Politico, which has shown sympathies to the Left for quite some time, so it is difficult to assess the accuracy of this poll.

Her meteoric rise in popularity is remarkable when you consider she hasn’t produced anything of substance other than serving on the 2016 presidential campaign for Sen. Bernie Sanders. The freshman representative possesses no prior experience in government and has not passed any legislation. The Left is quick to point out President Trump also had no political experience prior to his election, which is true, but as a businessman he was able to build a substantial empire involving real estate holdings and entertainment, and in the process put thousands of people to work.

In contrast, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has only delivered speeches and attended rallies preaching the Socialist gospel and has been active on social media. What she lacks in experience and know-how, she makes up for by youth and her communication skills which somehow appeals to naive millennials. All of this has made her a darling of the main stream media, who is grooming her for the future of the Democrats.

Even if Rep. Ocasio-Cortez fails to pass a single bit of legislation, the news media will broadcast her voice, provide coaching, cover-up her faux pas, and keep her relevant until she is of age to run in six more years. In other words, the news media has made her “The Chosen One,” as they have finally found a candidate they can easily program to suit their agenda, and this explains why we should all take her very seriously.

    ” I agree, she is like a crazy Pied Piper leading the lazy, foolish millennials down the road to Socialism. They don’t care nor even understand how silly her ideas are.”

    “Great article, however I take her seriously in that her beliefs are dangerous and yes she is popular for now, but politics you know is a flavor of the month business. She’s only popular long enough till the next one comes along. In 6 years we will be saving Alexandria who?”

  4. She’s a media darling and hardly the first or the last. Funny thing in the 14th Congressional district the Republicans just had some guy put his name on the ballot. The guy didn’t bother to even pretend he was running. She’s photogenic and I’m pretty sure everything we see in the media is orchestrated by now. Who knows if she actually had to run in an actual election whether she could get any votes?

    “I agree that we have to take her seriously. The Dems are into shallow people who are physically attractive but basically empty vessels. Beto, Obama and Trudeau are all good examples. Republicans tend to look up to war heroes (not fake ones like Phillips or Blumenthal), police officers, etc., while Dems look up to movie stars and rap singers. I predict that Ocasio-Cortez will be a loose cannon who will eventually implode. I guess the question is, how much does a person have to implode to turn off the Dems? I venture to say, it would have to be pretty far. “

    “Mister. I’ll tell you right now that this girl is an incredible idiot.

    Imagine her actually TRYING to debate someone? She will get destroyed. Even other democrats don’t like her especially of what she said about immigration enforcement. She is too far left.
    In six years she will irrelevant. Then again I’ll see if I can join the Marines this year or next. Six years should be enough time to make sure she doesn’t live long enough for her so-called presidency.”
