Democratic socialist and young New York Democrat, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, wants you to come with her on a magical journey where every problem you’ve ever encountered is solved and every social issue plaguing humanity is a thing of the past. She tells us consistently that she has solutions to the things that trouble us, and that if we just put our trust in her, America will become the Utopia we’ve always wanted.
It’s a nice thought, and if it were possible to achieve this kind of Heaven on Earth, I’d be bending my ear a bit. Sadly, it’s not. In the universe that we occupy, the kind of socialistic paradise that our former bartender in her late twenties is promising is literally impossible. It’s a world of pure imagination, and that kind of reality-bending wonder looked better on Gene Wilder.
Ocasio-Cortez is literally promising to take care of you from cradle to grave. She will educate you, clothe you, and give you and make sure that whatever you’re doing, you can make a living off of it.
