As you probably know by now, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez beat long-time Democrat Joe Crowley in New York’s very liberal 14th Congressional District.
Ocasio-Cortez, 28, a former organizer for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign and a onetime staffer for the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, ran on an unalloyed leftist progressive platform, calling for a “political revolution” that includes Medicare and higher education for all, gun control measures, an end to private prisons and the abolition of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s a self-admitted socialist. She is a card-carrying, true-blue member of the Democratic Socialists of America.
As a socialist, she wants to bring failed third-world economic and social principles to the United States. The thing of it, she will not be practicing the socialism she claims to believe in. Rarely if ever do the advocates of socialism live the socialist lifestyle. She was an organizer for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, like Sanders, loves to confiscate and spend other people’s money while they live off the wealth of the people they want to fleece.
Curiously, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was “a onetime staffer for the late Sen. Ted Kennedy.” Democrats have demonstrated loudly about Donald Trump’s sexually inappropriate comments about women and even his alleged affairs.
And yet Democrats, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez included, had no problem repeatedly working to re-elect Ted Kennedy to the Senate. He has been described as the “Lion of the Senate” even though he was a multi-millionaire and left a woman to drown in his car. In fact, the Kennedy political family has a combined net worth of more than a billion dollars:
So how wealthy are the Kennedys, an aristocratic clan that continues to usher new members of its prominent family tree into politics to this day? According to Forbes magazine, the top 30 members of the Kennedy family are worth a combined estimate of $1.2 billion. (Newsweek)
“Socialism and political disgrace for thee but not for me,” is the mantra of socialists everywhere. It won’t be any different for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the people she represents if she wins in November.
Why would someone like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez work for Sen. Kennedy after knowing about all of this?
