AOC: We Must Have the Government Control Things, So We Can Be More Free

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Screenshot from this video

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) announced her endorsement this past week for the 2020 presidential election.

The fact that she endorsed an old white male millionaire candidate, and not a woman of color, might seem a bit of a surprise, given her rhetoric. But that it was Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), her fellow socialist, is perhaps not a great shock. Because that’s always the bottom line. Her fellow “Squad” members, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) also endorsed Sanders.

Not that there seems like a huge difference anymore between Sanders and any of the other folks in the Democratic field as they all seem to be running as far to the left as they can in order to grab the base and endorsements like AOC.

Ocasio-Cortez spoke at a rally on Saturday to endorse Sanders and proposed nationalizing many areas of the economy while arguing it would make us more free.

“We need to build a mass movement in America centered on working-class, the poor, the middle class,” she said. “One that is actively anti-racist, that is rooted in principles of universality. Everybody has a right to health care. Everybody has a right to an education. One that is rooted in principles of cooperation, that is participatory, that combats not only racism but misogyny, anti-queer discrimination, we have to have actively center those principles to drive us forward because the future and our future is in public systems, and it’s publicly owned systems. Because we need to take power over our lives again. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Mark Zuckerberg making decisions over my life. I don’t know about you, but the Waltons have already been making decisions over our lives and what we got was nothing.”

She continued, “We need a-uh-eh-uh United States that really, truly, authentically is operated, owned and decided by working, and all people, in the United States of America.”

She said we needed to hand all of that over to the government “because we need to take power over our lives again?”

Alrighty, now. The logic seems missing there.

Isn’t that what one calls communism? When all that stuff is owned by the state?

How has that worked in the past? Should we ask the millions of people who were oppressed in such systems? Of course, many of them were killed, so we can’t ask them.

Ocasio-Cortez said it was because of Bernie Sanders that she recognized her “inherent value as a human being.”

Really? Because if you didn’t know it before and that’s what did it for you, that’s truly troubling.

Would we rather hundreds of AOCs in charge of our lives? Because that’s what you get with the government in charge, when there’s even less accountability than in the private sector that at least has to pay attention to markets and, to some extent, the opinion of the people.

      Times they are a changing.

      Freedom does not mean you have money or wealth, it means you are safe. Safe to pursue your dreams.

      Safe to be yourself. Safe say what you want to say. Safe to live the way you want to live, and safe to be free to think and believe what you want to believe, not as others tell you to believe.

      What is the truth?

      I am much happier with this life when I learned that being rich doesn’t mean what I thought it did.

      Whatever your definition of “rich” is, you have the ability to change your life and make your dreams happen.

      While many think figuring out how to become rich may be impossible, I’m here to tell you that you can reach your dreams and that is what makes you rich, but only as long as you Have your Freedom!.

      “Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value.”

      “What seems to us as bitter trials are often blessings in disguise.”

      “There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.”

      The core of freedom is conquering fear.

      But often, people are afraid of freedom because with freedom comes risk.

      When you choose freedom, you make choices for yourself. Nobody else makes them for you. And when you make choices for yourself, the responsibility — or the blame — for the outcome rests with you.”

      I don’t know how anyone can believe these spoilt brats and fatherless morons who most have been raised in a time of peace and plenty and having NEVER been tested are given the reigns of power?

      Truly, as the Bible says, you will be sent women and children to rule you for forgetting about your GOD! :twisted:
