Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hates capitalism because it is “immoral”
Capitalism. That is the system that the United States of
America decided was the best economic policy. Capitalism has lifted more people
out of poverty around the globe than any other economic system, including the
left and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (AOC) beloved socialism.
But that doesn’t seem to stop them from running their mouths
with zero forethought about what they are saying. To the socialist, the wealthy
are a symptom of the disease of capitalism.
That is what AOC recently stated at a Martin Luther King,
Jr. Day event this week. As she stated:
I do think that a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong,
She went on to state that she doesn’t believe that
billionaires like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, both supporters of leftist
policies, are immoral.
Ocasio-Cortez has taken on the mantle of extreme progressive
policies in the Democrat party and continues to spout nonsense such as this.
She recently said that a 70% tax rate on the wealthiest citizens is the best
route to go, completely missing the fact that people with that amount of money
would just take it elsewhere.
Progressive Democrats, or rather socialists masquerading as
Democrats, will not be content until the capitalist system in the United States
is demolished and the state runs everything. AOC is a symptom of a rotting
disease that has infected the Democrat party. It is up to every conservative
and libertarian to combat these extreme economic positions with the truth, that
capitalism is the means through which prosperity can be attained.
