The Official Thread for Democratic Socialism

841 posts in this topic

Joe Lieberman is urging voters in the general election not to vote for Ocasio-Cortez, but instead pick Crowley, who is on the ballot as the nominee of something called the Working Families Party.

"Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s surprise primary victory over Rep. Joe Crowley seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party. It doesn’t have to," Lieberman wrote in an op-ed published Tuesday in The Wall Street Journal.

Dems throwing a lot of weight behind this chick awful fast.  Just when you think the party cant go any more batshit crazy liberal extremist they pull this. 
Thats cause for worry if youre a die hard in my view as it will just re-polarize the Trump supporters if they think shes viable in 2020.  This person could barely pass a govt class based on her comment in interviews.
Please Dems dont tie your wagon to this, i cant support it in any way shape or form.

I have no idea why the left does not understand this. Are they really that stupid or is it just a political talking point now to get votes?

it's an excuse to tax us more often.

Our national healthcare expenditure is 3.3 trillion a year.  You do realize that 32.6 trillion over 10 years is less than that, right?

If anything it's conservatives pushing her in the limelight.  She has not even been elected yet, but ya'll already have a whole thread about her.  You mention 2020, she is 28 years old.  Too young to even run.

So you are saying it will be worse coverage. Thanks for clarifying.

Fair enough on the age and correct
As far as the rest i see more on the dem side propping her up than i do rep side doing anything, but im sure we all have varying feeds.
And please dont use y'all here, im not repcon, i have no party.   i cant support the religious conservative right, thats as far from who i am as a person as i can aimagine, but the dems have gone uber extreme left, and thats also not me.
I keep hoping the Dems will do something i can support but they keep tripping over thier dorks with people like this

The Conservatives are just pointing our her displays of ignorance. It's not the Conservative leaning, morning talk show circuits and news cycles that are putting her on and acting like she's the greatest new thing to hit the political world. As for this thread, I didn't take it as just about her. There is a significant portion of the American left that thinks a move to full on Socialism like this is a good thing.  It's worth having a thread and talking about it.

And the Dem establishment has some tough calls to make. Is this a tea party type movement? If so, it may be in their interest to move more economically left. But doing so probably won't make the actual power of the party (business and banks) too happy. Tough spot. I'm sure they'll fuck it up somehow.

I've seen people on my feeds sincerely push for her to run. I had to point out the constitutional requirements. Granted it's not too often that someone elected actually fails to meet that requirement. Basically everyone I know that was in favor of Bernie is really in favor of her.  This isn't just a conservative push, though clearly they will be more than willing to help.

Simple democracy dude. When people can vote themselves perceived benefits they will, regardless of consequences.

 

 

Yep. Here in California they got themselves a choo-choo train that will take 50 years to build (if it's built at all) and cost gazillions of dollars.

This, in a state that will bankrupt itself at some point over unsustainable pensions.
