Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a raging socialist who wants to tax the snot right out of every single American in order to build a twisted, bloated, big government dystopia — because there’s no such thing as a “utopia” where socialism is involved — that will destroy liberty and oppress the people of this great nation.
And apparently, her mother, Blanca, understands that point oh too well. In fact, Blanca Ocasio-Cortez has bolted out of the state of New York because of high taxation.
Isn’t that rich?
“I was cleaning houses in the morning and working as a secretary at a hospital in the afternoon. I was working from 6 am until 11 pm,” Blanca, a lifelong Democrat, said. “And I prayed and prayed, and things worked out. After the children graduated from college, I figured it was time for me to move to Florida.”
“I lived in the New York area for most of my life but I started being unable to afford it,” she continued. “I was paying $10,000 a year in real estate taxes up north. I’m paying $600 a year in Florida. It’s stress-free down here.”
Blanca insisted that her daughter was not a socialist, stressing what she claims is a clear distinction between being socialist and being a democratic socialist, as her daughter styles herself.
“She wasn’t raised to be a socialist,” Blanca said. “That’s not how Puerto Ricans are. That’s not what we do. Socialists are in Cuba or Venezuela.”
“She’s a democratic socialist, and it’s very different,” Blanca added.
Hate to break the news to dear Blanca, but yeah, socialism is socialism, and it’s always bad. You can put a dress on a pig and slap a little lipstick on it, but it’s still a pig.
Socialism of any variety is naturally destructive for the people it is pressed upon because it goes against the fundamental nature of how people and societies actually work. When you defy the universal laws that God created and put in place for mankind to function as a society, you get chaos and misery.
This is a lesson that Blanca should understand very well, considering socialism is basically the reason she left New York.
Sure, she’s just trying to defend her daughter, something most of us would also do in her situation. However, that doesn’t change the fact that the congresswoman is pushing for an overhaul of our system that would destroy the greatest political experiment the world has ever known, along with the last true beacon of freedom on the global stage.
So, yeah, hard pass on the socialism.
