At an event in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr., on Monday, Social Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to espouse her contemptible views on economics and social order when she was asked if a world that allowed for the existence of billionaires was moral.

“No, it’s not,” said the 29-year-old freshman Congresswoman. She then explained that the billionaires themselves were not the ones who were immoral. “I don’t think that necessarily means all billionaires are immoral. It’s not to say someone like Bill Gates or Warren Buffett are immoral people.” She continued, “I’m not saying that, but I do think 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.”

So, let’s get this straight, in the strange and ominous world of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the one who seeks billions is okay, but the fact that he or she is allowed to amass billions is not. Therefore, in Ocasio-Cortez’s world, the billionaires are to be eliminated. She doesn’t say how, whether it’s by termination or taxation, but the end result is they are to be regulated out of existence.

The irony is that regardless of which method is chosen to correct the error, both the outcome and solution are even more immoral than the problem Ocasio-Cortez has arbitrarily and capriciously chosen to create. If the former is selected, then the state will be in the business of ending the lives of individuals who have engaged in the sin of amassing more than a randomly defined amount of money. If the latter, which is obviously more likely, then it is their property we are going to steal.

If those comments weren’t sufficient, Ocasio-Cortez then went on to suggest that even those companies she does not like ought to be placed under the crosshairs of government: “I think it’s wrong that corporations like Wal-Mart and Amazon can get paid.” So now, companies engaged in the good faith enterprise in the free market should not get paid for the incredible work they do and for the benefits they bring to society.

The fact is that all of the interventions which Ocasio-Cortez proposes have been previously tried, and we know exactly what the systems for which she espouses look like. History will tell the oppressiveness of collectivist states and their failures. Estimates are that more than 115 million people have been slaughtered in the name of socialism, communism, or fascism; never mind the countless other atrocities that have been realized.

But amidst the nonsense, there is one little phrase the Representative threw that gives us a clue as to the direction the American left is trying to take their tyrannical agenda. “I think that it’s wrong,” she said, “that a vast majority of the country does not make a living-great wage.”

Take note. For the American left, it is no longer sufficient to argue, in addition to the eradication of billionaires and nationalization of Wal-Mart and Amazon, for the implementation of a living wage. The concept is now for the implementation of a “living-great wage.” Whatever that means, it’s bound to end in dystopic future.

    AOC has disappeared down the rabbit hole after passing over the red and blue pills and indulging in a substantial quantity of LSD instead. She claims to be trained in economics but I seriously doubt she could even make change on a simple purchase at the local 7-Eleven. Espousing the toxic and deadly tenets of communism, she declares herself economic empress and tries, convicts, and proposes punishment for billionaires. However, she conveniently leaves out the leftist/progressive billionaires who bankroll democrat candidates, leftist hate groups, and NWO operatives who seek to enslave and control the entire globe. The only thing more frightening and dangerous than this delusional harpy are the idiotic and uninformed voters who granted her this position. If she is indeed the face of the new democrat party, and the public continues to place people like her in positions of authority, the our country’s future (and that of the world, in general) looks bleak.

    Personally, I think AOC and her ilk are the best thing to happen to American Conservatism and Libertarianism in a long time. AOC provides fantastic fodder for fighting with the folks back home: “Oh, so you want Ocasio-Cortez-style Socialism in America now, eh? You want to make it illegal to be successful, grow a company, amass a fortune? You want successful companies like Amazon and Apple to taken over and run by the government? You want to turn America into the next Venezuela?”

    Most of my Liberal relatives, however brainwashed they may be by the MSM, are smarter than that. That is to say, they’re smarter than AOC. By a lot.

    The popular conception of a multi-bllionaire having money in barrels-of-cash terms is a grave error. Wealth is in ownership of successful and competitive productive enterprises that make marketable products, provide services, underwrite the middle class. Ocasio does not display a misunderstanding of economics in saying that billionaires shouldn’t exist, she displays a Marxist understanding of economics that this wealth should be owned by “The People,” – That is, collectively. Managed, of course, by the all-wise, all-knowing and inherently ethical governing bureaucracy which, like the Russian Tsar, Stalin, his successor, or Maduro has always the best interests of the rest of us, the serfs, at heart.

    Maybe some one should ask this harpy why everyone doesn;t have a million dollars.
    If the people she is so conerned about don’t care enough about themselves to attempt to learn when it is given to them for free, what makes her tink that they will appreciate money that is gven to them for free?
    Take a look around at all of the large cities that these progressives have turned into massive s-holes…..all of them run by progressive liberals, all of them getting worse by the week, and all of them sowing more and more discontent and inequality. Ask her why the black market for cigarettes drugs is huge in these very s-hole cities they have created….Why are there still slums when the housing is paid for along with their food, the water, the electricity, the heat, their phones? Hell, these dregs can;t even be trusted to feed their children so we pay people to cook food and feed their children breakfast and supper while they are at school! And the more we give them the more they bitch that they don;t get enough. And how many of us have ever had the pleasure of trying to deal with an over paid bureaucrat that hates their job? And this fool wants to pay them $31,000 a year?
    Why doesn;t someone call this idiot on the carpet and ask her why she’s so adamant about taking other people’s money but she was too cheap to pay her unemployment insurance? Then ask her if she is paying her lowest campaigne staffers $31,000 along with health insurance and matching FICA!
    And when she tells you know, spit in her eye and walk away!
