The HoR reflects the people, as crazy as we are, and gives us the opportunity to put forth wild ass proposals but the "refined" and "measured" Senate usually squashes that crap.

The point of that is to say, while AOC is delicious fodder for criticism, she's 1 person with wild ass ideas who will likely amount to nothing in the end and will have a legislative record of dull successes that don't really inspire anyone or change the nation.


....women, of color no less, wanting a seat on the gravy train. Ain't that awful? :ohno:


That's cultural appropriation. She should be ashamed. :bad:

The US is a nation on a progressive path which wandered off a little the last few decades. Some people fanned the fears of change for their own benefit and a portion of the population bought into it.

I'm confident the US will regain its bearings though, and I think it's beginning to do so. But it'll take time.

Agree and polling supports this. The average american is well to the left of political leadership on big issues but until/unless the influence of money is minimized in elections, I'm afraid you're not going to see much change.

It is out of context since it was part of a quote.

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/ocasi ... ogy-quote/
Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is pitching a “Green New Deal” that she says would overhaul U.S. energy use, reduce carbon emissions and create new jobs.

“We can put so many people to work,” Ocasio-Cortez told an audience at a televised town hall Monday night. “We need to refit so many pipes. We need to re-lay roads. We need to rebuild schools. We need to invent technology that’s never even been invented yet.”

I didn't question the context, so it's not out of context.
I am not disagreeing with what she was trying to say. I'm laughing at how she said it.

Whoa, this needs a much deeper dive. "The average American is well to the left of the political leadership on big issues...". Are you just trolling here or are you legitimately saying this? Link? Proof? Etc? And the next question is even if people are technically "for" a thing, a "big" issue (again, what are those "big issues") are they still "for" it when the political and economic realities of those positions come fully to light? Lot of people can be for something when they don't know much about it and when it really doesn't impact them. When push comes to shove, sometimes people will turn from idealists into realists.
