We‚Äôre entering a new political era. The issues are bigger, they‚Äôre far outside the mainstream, and they‚Äôre reminiscent of an earlier time. And the stakes are higher.
One of the first to recognize this was Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. ‚ÄúI can pretty safely say this is the first time in my political career that I thought the essence of America was being debated,‚ÄĚ he tells me in an interview.
‚ÄúI never thought we [would be] debating things that were debated in the ‚Äô30s, both communism and socialism,‚ÄĚ Mr. McConnell says. Those ideologies were ‚Äúlargely discredited at a time when Americans could have found these arguments pretty appealing in the middle of the Great Depression.‚ÄĚ...

So, I'm a stump bigot. I've never claimed to be a perfect Christian. I've been battling a hatred for stumps for most of my life. I've made progress, but it's been a struggle. I struggle with mountain hillbillies, too. ūüėä
Sorry, but the new media darling, AOC, is dumb as a stump, politically, financially, and scientifically. She has no business sitting in a policy-makers seat, and running her mouth with the most nonsensical, unattainable, and America ending nonsense that I've ever heard come out of a "politicians" mouth.
She is the same person, who, when Amazon pulled out of the 3B New York deal recently, went on record with a reporter to say that the 3B surplus that's just sitting around now in a box somewhere, needs to be used for this and that. She thought New York was just handing Amazon 3B in cash for locating there, but now that they aren't, that money needs to go where it's needed. She then admonished New York for offering to pay them so much money. Unreal...
It is good to see the WSJ gets its chance here, though I would not say they are a conservative organ. They favor unlimited immigration to keep wages low on all jobs, which their Big Money sponsors have to pay for. The case of Disney must always be remembered in any discussion of immigration, since they fired all their Info Tech staff so they could replace them with Asians who would do the same job, if not better, for a lower wage. If you or your children were hoping to make a career in that field, well, be ready to be demoted or fired outright. Thanks WSJ! USA has Medicare for all 'seasoned citizens' over 65, and Medicaid for the poor (or those who just don't want to work). Are you filling out your taxes? Notice the 'Earned Income Credit'? That's another socialist move--to redistribute income from the wealthy to those who just have children and don't want to work too much to support them. Look at the EIC tables in the 1040 instructions, and you will see it makes no sense for someone with 3 or 4 children to get a well paying job when the EIC will make up for much of it. Besides, the more you make, the greater is the percent of taxes you pay. But our former bartender is just a mouth piece for old fogeys like Bernie--who may not live to run for President again!

"Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has pushed raising the top marginal tax rate to 70 percent on income over $10 million. The top marginal rate is currently 37 percent. In an interview in The Verge, Gates said such an approach is "a misfocus." "If you focus on that, you're missing the picture," he said without mentioning the Democratic socialist congresswoman by name."
Once you allow the Left commie PC Libs in, you will see a whole new America - A USSA; United Socialist States of America.
The seed apparently has been planted. And Bernie the marxist will be trying for president in 2020????
