Let's be honest - the only way to reduce the size and scope of government is to take away their credit card.

Take away all funding for "discretioanary" spending.  This means Income Tax has to go.

It will be tough, and many non-essential government services will need to be cut;

Non-essential wealth redistribution, Non-essential corporate bailouts,

Non-essential off-shore Military bases/installations will need to close (there's over 700 of them!)

Foreign intervention will need to stop.

Yes, and it's leverage the Republicans fail to leverage every time they raise the debt ceiling.  Another reason I'm not a Republican

The TwoParties have a bi-partisan cooperative effort going getting us in ever more debt.

I was thinking, since only around 60% of Americans support the TwoParties, shouldn't 40% of Congress be representing the rest of us?

These people aren't nearly numerous enough to make up the missing 40% of the representation we should have-

If we had free and fair elections, that 40% would be represented by someone, but we aren't.

At least she can't be accused of never having had a job...

"[¡Ocasio!] believes there is no problem that a government program can’t solve.

Got healthcare issues? She would offer Medicare for All.

Need a job? She proposes a Job Guarantee.

Want to go to college? Get ready for Tuition-free College.

Worried about global warming? How about a large-scale “green infrastructure” program?

Wait a minute… You’re probably wondering, how can we afford all these things?"


We can't.  Not unless our income taxes go up to 70%!!  

Oh that's right . . . . she wants that too.   Grin    Grin    Grin   

Socialists..... how can anyone take them seriously?

It's a different mindframe.  For us, we are ambitious and want control over our own lives, so we cannot understand it.

For people who want to smoke dope and play video games all day, they don't care about making more of their lives.  So why wouldn't they just vote for people who promise them free shit.  We aren't going to uninvent dope or video games at this point.

AOC is appealing to the lowest common denominator.  Unfortunately, they are a huge percentage of our population.  Two of the five businesses I owned were a restaurant and a drop in childcare center.  Can you imagine not calling in on a Friday night to your job because your buds are going out partying?  Or drinking beer while you're making deliveries?  Those things happen all the time, trust me
