Ocasio-Cortez has an insane new idea that could destroy America forever.
She is trying to take away every freedom that American soldiers have fought and died for.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went over the edge with this insult to every veteran.
Communism sounds so lovely on paper, if society was just structured correctly, everyone in society would get an even amount.
But it is dangerous to try and set up a country in the same manner as a kindergarten classroom.
In fact, it is deadly.
About 100 million people were killed by communism in the twentieth century.
Giving up freedom to have free things isn’t a good trade.
The government will provide free housing, clothing, food and medical care to everyone who is in jail.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s new plan would make us prisoners of the American government instead of citizens.
She is proposing that the government should be the one to provide people with everything they need with “guaranteed universality.”
According to The Daily Wire:
AOC said that “guaranteed universality” means “at the very least, a $15 an hour minimum wage or maybe higher as we introduce things” is needed. “It means Medicare for all, or at the very least guaranteed health care as a right. Housing as a right.”
“So we have to really say, for the things we depend on to live, we need at bare minimum a public option if not guaranteed universality,” the 29-year-old lawmaker said.
How to pay for all that free stuff. Not to worry, the international relations and economics major said.
“So I think in that transition it is worker centered and it invests in jobs and invests in labor. I think that progressive taxation is potentially a component of it,” she said.
“It’s not about how are we going to pay for it, it’s how do we want to pay for it,” she said.
There are two huge problems with her plan.
The first is that people are inherently self-motivated.
No one wants to work hard so that strangers can live comfortably.
And people get real value in their lives by working to take care of themselves and their families.
The second problem is that it gives far too much power to the government.
The Founding Fathers were well-versed in history and knew that governments always progress towards tyranny.
That is why they crafted a balance of powers in the federal government to try and keep it in check.
If the government controls a person’s economics, the government can control every part of that person’s life.
No government should be trusted with that much power.
When the Soviet Union took over Russia, they allowed millions to starve in Ukraine because it misused its power.
America was built on individual responsibility and its individual responsibility that will keep America strong in the future.
Do you think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s plan of guaranteed universality would cause America’s collapse?
