Last week, 28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a self-described socialist defeated incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in a Democratic House primary in New York City. Her win, a dramatic upset in the primary elections, was an early indicator of Americas recent turn toward socialism.
Recent polls show that 36 percent of Americans between the age of 18 and 29 favor socialism over capitalism. Socialisms stigma seems to be fading as fewer Americans remember the spectacular failure of the Soviet Union the largest socialism experiment in history and most are seemingly unaware of the current economic disaster in socialist Venezuela.
Politicians such as Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and now newcomer Ocasio-Cortez, appeal to young voters with promises of free college and healthcare while demonizing capitalism the very system under which they have flourished.

I do believe that they all envision being part of the party ruling elite strata, not the commoners that are under the party’s thumb in any real attempt to do socialism that has any stability.
That is because it is “Socialism for thee, and not for me.” They see themselves as the vanguard of the proletariat who shall reap the rewards of their utopia.
They better make it “Free College for Life” because after there is no economy left, what else are they going to do?
I heard Bernie bought his lake house in order to house refugees from South America. And Michael Moore is already housing over 500 refugees at his enormous house.
LOL! I kill me sometimes.
>>I do believe that they all envision being part of the party ruling elite strata, not the commoners that are under the partys thumb in any real attempt to do socialism that has any stability.
I think that you are correct. They all see themselves as leaders of people.
“Conservatism” has done a very poor job of informing citizens and voters, that SCIALISM is more likely to result in Venezuela, Cuba and N. Korea, than Denmark & Sweden.
For one thing Denmark & Sweden have strong free market economies, and they have been careful to not ruin that.
The others have ruined their economies’ free market capitalist bases.
And soon Mexico.
They want “free college”...for what? So they can get a better job, and make lots of money....whoops...we’re back to capitalism.
So, that tells me that they want to be on the *receiving end* of socialism, but on the *profitable end* of capitalism.
Something about “cake and eat it too??
No one told them that under socialism, there probably aren’t many *paying* jobs at all...just working for the state.
I think I see the problem here. Leftists are not known for having much brain power. In fact the term “libtard” came from them usually being so low on the IQ scale it’s difficult to reason with them at all.
Trying to explain the failures of socialism and the benefits of capitalism to someone like this is akin to explaining dry dirt to a fish. It may be possible the fish knows what it is but will never truly understand it unless it experiences it to the point of death at which time it will be too late then it will just stink up the place.
government schools controlled by socialist labor union bosses connected to worldwide workers’movement is not in the best interests of education, capitalism, democracy. Public sector unions control big city counsels & install left wing police chiefs favored by socialists,.....and they control school boards of education...which then decide who the superintendents are, the principals, the teachers....the curriculum. We get one party socialist schools....
councils.....sorry...I got Mueller on the brain.,,city “councils”....not “counsels”
Mexico the the next live tutorial on socialism failures.
Communists such as Ocassio-Cortez believe see themselves as policy makers living in their dachas, not a corpse in a mass grave.
I suspect this had less to do with a turn towards socialism and more to do with the Walk away movement..
No see, the socialists who are officeholders are part of the inner party, thse overseeing socialism progres to communism.
most others would be outer party low level workers.
inner party is oligarchy. they live like kings. they have the brains.
just watch animal farm or 1984.
Those in the inner party know the lie that real communism will never be able to occur, so the ruling inner party will never go away, but they say they keep progressing towards communism, lying to the proles while secure in their luxuries.
Communists like to use Marxists’ and Communists definition of what “capitalism” is and state that you MUST go after every possible dollar, don’t “leave money on the table”.
It’d be like saying that a heterosexual means fornicating with as many mates as possible to continue to spread your seed.
both are extreme notions of a concept.
