There’s a perfect way to terminate her damaging career she should get pregnant.
Rick Barnadas (2 hours ago)
How the fuck would that end her career? Plenty of female politicians have children. Is that the best you've got. All you Trumptardians are doing is making her more powerful within the Democratic party by talking about a junior congresswoman so much. What other junior congressperson has ever garnered so much talk? Keep at it please because you all of you are only helping her. Her Twitter following is above 2 million and climbing. Obviously she is resonating with a lot of American citizens whether you like her politics or not. Thats what scares the shit out of all of you. Please keep her in the news headlines LMAO!

I had to leave the USA back in August 2018 because I just couldn't keep up. Working 18 hour days to barely support myself, my family and ailing mother. God forbid if my 2004 jeep liberty broke down or if I came down with the flu. The fear of my kids getting shot at school or at a concert or at the mall or at church. The tears I held back because my kid was being bullied for being Latino and shorter than the other kids. I now live in Europe. Life is different here. Healthcare is free for everyone. FREE! Food is incredibly cheap. My kid hasn't come home saying he's been picked on because of his last name, stature or even the fact of being American. I'm not saying it's perfect here. They have their issues, too. But I don't have to work 18 hour days anymore. On the weekends, I can actually afford taking the family to a near by town full of castles and history and literally eating a banquet. I am actually planning a family vacation to Paris, Rome, Madrid and London. Thoughts like that never even popped into my mind while I was living in America. Trips to Europe were for the rich. Plus who has the time to see 4 European cities? Well, I have a month vacation after my first year of working. I was born and raised in New York. I lived in Florida for 20 years. I love my country. And it broke my heart 2 weeks ago when I asked my son if he preferred living here or in the States, he said here. He's 11 years old. I wish Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had appeared in the spotlight 10 years ago. But she's here now. The people in America need her and people like her. I ran out of hope and I am getting older and more tired. I feel safer here. I can have dinner with my family every night and check my son's homework. Alexandria is right. Life in the USA isn't great for the working class. Every day that goes by just gets more difficult to endure. I'm 53 years old and I don't want to be a burden for my son when I get old. And the sensation of time creeping up quickly while living and working in the USA is noticeable when standing in front of the mirror. Now time has seemed to slow down. I can sleep late on a Sunday. Ironically, I'm not thinking about bills all the time anymore. I don't know if I'll go back to live in the USA. But l can tell the American person who is reading this right now. Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is right. I live in a country where they have applied many of the things that she says and proposes. Life is better. Much better. God bless you all, chose your leaders wisely. She's worth it. I'll vote for her from here.

Congratulations! Never give up! Thank you for your work. You have a knack for explaining situations clearly and concisely. Please keep posting explanations and keep ascending in your political career. Make is so that if they try to silence you, more would rise in your place. I don't consider you an extremist or a corrupt politician. Please don't become one. If you remain incorruptible, your supporters will always outnumber your opposition. Thanks again!
Alex B (4 days ago)
All of you people are listening to this person who has no clue what she's doing and who doesn't know anything about history and the economy. Her reforms are purely socialist and the same reforms have been proven time and time again to fail and leave countries in ruins and the same ia going to happen to the US is she tries it here
curtis jones (3 days ago)
Alex B-I agree that she may have a lot of socialist ideas but the idea is to push her toward a more socaiist /capitalist economy. Full socailism has never worked in any country and this is what she needs to understand. The average poor and working family is being pushed out especially in places like New York, this is why someone like her is needed

All talk no action she makes people feel good with her feel good policies like healthcare for all school for all with no idea how to pay for it she’s irresponsible seducing the masses with her free stuff policies there’s no such thing as a free lunch and when you hit reality you will see and you’ll end up like all socialist countries broke and wondering how you got there
curtis jones (3 days ago)
Nick Stay-When i was in school they had free lunch programs and the families needed them . What is sad is that in 2019 people still need this program. Something is very wrong with our economy when families have to depend on a program to pay for lunch. We need her to fight for the poor but also we need her to help families become less dependent on the government. Someone has to be a voice for the poor as we move ahead toward a more capitalistic society. I agree with you socialist countries go broke , look at what is happening in Venezuela.

Are you trying to make people that come from a poor Community feel like they are not supposed to be in government? And if you are an educator, have you ever educated anyone about Hitler's socialism? you use a dark tongue saying "we need a champion" and vote for you, as if you can be a champion making a fool of yourself in the media. Won't it be those poor people paying for those freebies you're talking about? All you are doing is looking for a new way to text the poor. As if you are the first one saying that you come to help the poor, coming up with ideas that just end up taxing the poor. We don't want your freebies. Because we don't want you to tax the job makers away from the United States and into China. I heard you talk about your 70% tax, and then afterwards you talked about fairness. Doesn't that mean it will trickle down & 70% of the income of the poor will be taken as well, for "fairness" sake? will you move it up to 100% and make Americans full-time slaves? Your tactic is an old tactic. You should have come up with something new. But saying things like foreigners are more Americans than Americans tells me that you don't have the brains to come up with something new. You picked the wrong time in history to become a nazi socialist. if I get free healthcare, does that mean I can become a hardcore drug addict and daredevil and you won't mind paying for my constant medical needs? Do you push free health care so that people will act foolishly with their body? Are you trained in Hitler's socialism and Stalin's communism? And you don't mind free schooling especially when you know it won't actually be free, but I don't hear you talking about teaching the law to the young in public schools to keep them out of prisons. You are old school in a new world. And why is it that you don't mind adding foreign criminals to the criminals already in the United States? And I hear you Democrats talk about gun violence, and how you all want to save lives, but you don't mind the murderers coming through the Border, with the decent. You don't mind adding murderers to this country. I noticed that you Democrats are always using a black tongue against the not-so-bright. Isn't it wrong for a teacher to use one's ignorance against them? Becy people are entering the United States illegally, those that have come in Legally are looked at as if they are illegals. Why would you want to help that horrible feeling, and with adding murderers to the United States?¡

Good Gawd what a "3 chambers of govt" moron. This is what you get when you add the self-esteem movement to affirmative action - the crowning achievement of the American educational system! A moronic minority who´s been shoved through the system on social promotions and fraudulently inflated grades while being coddled the entire time into thinking she´s some kind of freakin' genius.

She seems like an intelligent person, but her proposals are not so intelligent. Raising taxes to have free education and free health care sounds wonderful in a country with a low level of immigration, not in the USA, a country composed by empty pockets immigrants. Whatever benefits are destined for the citizens of the country end up in the hands of the freeloader aliens who come to drain the government resources to support their countries.

Open World (8 days ago)
As a citizen from Belgium (Europe), I see this video by coincidence because it's part of the 'year in review video' of our national tv channel. I don't really know anything about her political views but man, this video is amazing! It gave me goosebumps after 5 seconds. The way it's edited is great and I don't think anyone can deny that this video gives hope, a certain feeling that someone does care about the 'normal people'. But again, I don't know anything about her accomplishments, I'm not republican, neither am I a democrat, I'm just amazed by this video

Breakfast Club (9 days ago)
She lived where immigrants can come to the United States and screw like rabbits and have 14 children so they can live off of government subsidy's even though they work a job. You would think that parents would know when to stop having kids because they cant afford to feed them, or do they know they can rape the system and take hard working peoples money through taxing them? Sandy Cortez Doesnt even know what real work is. All she has ever done is went to school and trained on free money.

Brad Smith (17 days ago)
Your zip code determines your destiny? No. Nothing stops you from getting on a bus out of town. You can go to a more prosperous place. This is classic ethnic defeatism. It's why they create ghettos and keep it ghetto. They act like a 30 minutes bus ride out of town is impossible. It's a ridiculous crutch and excuse for failure. When whites came to this country we slept in the woods. Almost no provisions and righting off cold, hunger and native tribes. No hand outs. Yet we conquered this whole land. Built roads and infrastructure from coast to coast. But these ethnic folks think when your born on a certain street you are destined to stay there your whole life like tribes people who never crossed the river. Then again these ethnic people really havent crossed that river. Or ocean. They stay put. In their slum. They would have nothing without us yet now attack us like we owe them something. We created a true free market system where if you are born with a SSN you can get a job and bank account. You can freely travel zip code to zip code. Ethnic defeatism. It's got to stop. No more excuses. I am not sorry for what my ancestors did. You should be sorry for what your ancestors did not do.
Brad Smith (11 days ago)
+CSpan1993 FYI. When whites used slaves it was a period of history where it was common. Natives in Canada had their own slaves from other tribes. Blacks rounded up their own and sold them to Britain. The Islamic world was using African slavery until the 1980s and a Saudi princess was just caught with a captive Kenyan women just 4 years ago in California. But you wouldnt dare criticize the most prolific and brutal of all the users of slaves because arabs and Islam are in your little victim tribe.
Brad Smith (11 days ago)
+CSpan1993 So once you have the land u immediately have the wealth? Technology and abundance comes from just the land? So why didnt the natives do it and sail to Britain? Easy to built wealth because we had some dirt and freezing cold climate that many of us froze to death while hunting. Sometimes our wife and kids were dead when we returned. That was easy? Well if land is all you need Africa has lots. Why didnt they built an empire and sail around the globe? Your story is getting thin. You can only point to a small regional injustice against blacks for a small period of time. Then you claim ownership of every and MANY European accomplishment and empire
Brad Smith (11 days ago)
+CSpan1993 How did we get to Africa? Did the Africans build all of our technology and ships before we knew what an African even was? Your a moron. Go ahead take credit for a small period of history. We had empires before that and empires after slavery.
CSpan1993 (11 days ago)
Brad Smith its easy to build wealth when you steal land from natives. Not to mention the Canadian multinational corporations that exploit workers in the third world, etc. Try again sweetie.
Brad Smith (11 days ago)
+CSpan1993 No my friend. But just for arguments sake I'll give you this. America was built 100% by slaves only. (Even though it was the genius white engineer telling him where to hold the beam while a white carpenter fastened it were talking general labor not blue print makers here bud) But let's say 100% of America was built by slaves. Explain the rest of the wealthy European countries that never used slaves. How did they get built? How did Britain become a super power long before we even reached Africa let alone brought humans back?

All the corporations in the world combined don't have that kind of money!

Of course it's possible to finance that. It's called tax. Companies and citizens in the United States pay very low taxes compared to other western countries. And these countries dont spend forty trillion dollars on that .

I just got finished crying because I've never seen a politician asking me for their vote who I actually identify with, wants the same things for society that I do, comes from a working-class background just like me, and is a young woman of color just like me. This spoke to me in such an honest way. She is inspiring and gives me hope for a better future. The importance of representation has never been more blatantly obvious (for me) than after viewing this. Thank you, Alexandria.

I thought architects had a pretty high salary, but I guess not? (Her dad was an architect according to Wikipedia.) Now I'm not saying that what she's saying in this video is wrong, although I think it's a little misleading to say "Everyday gets harder for working families like mine to get by." When har dad is literally an architect. Once again don't get me wrong, I think that she makes some good points in the video.

I agree with you. I think she needed to figure out a better way to represent her background b/c she was not working class, she was middle class growing up.
Hello There (1 month ago)
The reason women like you should not run for office are quite simple: 1. you are privileged beyond belief (lived upstate, dad put you through BOSTON University). 2. You have the intelligence of a box of crackers. 3. You have a degree in economics from BOSTON UNIVERSITY yet proclaim socialism is best (even though it has failed every... single... time... in known history, including current day Venezuela. 4. You are NOT from the Bronx, people like you are what we call in-state-carpetbaggers, live in the rich area and say you are 'poor' when you never had to starve ONCE at dinner like we did growing up in the real city. 5. You did not even KNOW the 3 branches of federal government... Come on. 6. You are NOT a social democrat, you are a SOCIALIST. 7. The people in your district have no brains to have voted for a shill like yourself, consider that your greatest deception is your best accomplishment. 8. YOU ARE NOT JEWISH (stop saying it already). 9. You are not a real New Yorker, you are a privileged Hispanic from a upper class family. 10. You committed so many gaffes already and not even in office, I mean, threatening subpoena power over a meme? Grow some thick skin. HELL you are not even IN there yet... Grabbing my popcorn for this hilarious sh1tshow of AOC.
