Ocasio-Cortez’s Socialist Fan Club Asked How They’ll Pay For “Free Stuff” Their Answers Will Make You Face Palm

Published

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new darling of the Democratic Party and she just so happens to be an outspoken believer in “democratic socialism,” which means she’s a big fan of political mythology because this little Frankenstein’s monster doesn’t actually exist.

One of the big tenets of socialism is providing many of the basic needs people have for “free” like health care, housing, and so on. However, anyone with even a microcosm of common sense knows that there’s no such thing as something for nothing. Someone, somewhere, pays for everything.

This is precisely the point Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips made when he hit the streets in Astoria, New York, the home town of Ocasio-Cortez, to speak with her supporters about who is going to fund the free stuff. Their answers are the stuff nightmares are made of.

Ocasio-Cortez — who just received the Democratic nomination in New York’s 14th Congressional District — believes government should completely fund things like housing, college, and health care for everybody. And her fans on the street were down with all of that as well, without any hedging or hesitation.

But when asked who would pay for all that “free” stuff, some weren’t so confident — and others didn’t seem to understand or care about the implications of socialist policies.

“Some of it should come from taxes, but the government should pay for it,” one person replied.

“But the government is funded by taxes,” Phillips pointed out.

“Yeah,” she replied.

One guy seemed unconcerned about how socialism would be funded: “I don’t know where the money would come from, but they can figure it out.”

Yet another guy was convinced that “with a good idea and a good reason to spend their tax money, people wouldn’t actually mind paying more taxes.”

While you’re no doubt physically ill with the astounding amount of stupidity you’ve just been exposed to, the interview didn’t stop there. Not even close. It ended with this precious gem. Feel free to grab a barf bag first before reading on further.

“I’m liberal,” the interviewee said. “I don’t know exactly, like, where I stand, but I know, like, Democratic socialism is better than conservative … it’s the better option.”

When Phillips asked in what way it’s better, she replied, “Um, when I think of it, I just think of, like, more open-minded people, people that aren’t, like, as economically conserved.”

Say what now?

These people are the future of our country, folks. One day, these same individuals will be elected officials, business owners, and in other assorted positions of power, terrorizing the country with their utter lack of common sense, allowing the government to swell to absurd proportions.

If there was ever a time to worry about the future of America, today is that day.

Here’s the full clip.

“We have to turn down the capability of these Conservative influencers to reach these huge audiences.” This is how lefties think. Remember: the only right opinion is the left’s opinion. And that’s why America finds itself in such a dangerous place, these days.

Adam Schiff: Under ‘No Circumstance’ Should Trump Receive Intel Briefings After January 20

But Schiff should??

John Salvatore

Adam Schiff is no fan of Donald Trump – this much we’ve known for some time. His latest tirade against the current Commander in Chief, however, may have crossed a line. As chairman of the House Intel Committee, Schiff worked diligently in an attempt to have Trump impeached, with his secretive methods drawing major criticism from the Republican Party. Now, with President Trump less than 72 hours away from civilian life, Schiff is looking to send a parting shot across his bow. From Breitbart: House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that there was “no circumstance” under which President Donald Trump should receive intelligence briefings once he leaves office. Schiff added, “I don’t think he can be trusted with it now, and in the future, he certainly can’t be trusted. Indeed, there were any number of intelligence partners of ours around the world who probably started withholding information from us because they didn’t trust the president would safeguard that information and protect the sources and methods. That makes us less safe. We’ve seen this president politicize intelligence, and that’s another risk to the country.” President Trump’s next moves aren’t exactly clear. Some seem to believe that Donald Trump will find his way into the media sphere, perhaps even launching his own news station. Others have suggested that he could announce his 2024 candidacy on the day of Biden’s inauguration, which would essentially “freeze out” other potential candidates.
