A long string of truly evil men and women didn't start out that way, and weren't particularly bright, or particularly articulate, and may actually have had humanitarian intentions somewhere along the line. The Senātus Populusque Rōmānus gave them their power and authority, and metaphorically not just in ancient Rome. They would otherwise have been harmless idiots unknown to history. A lesson to be frequently, painfully, relearned.

I am sure Cortez means well, but so what? If her ideas were adopted, it would be a disaster.

She is typical of many extremists - she can't understand why the rainbow and unicorn world she longs for can't be. I always think of this Steely Dan lyric:

I heard it was you
Talkin' 'bout a world
Where all is free
It just couldn't be
And only a fool would say that

“But to ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the innocent and law-abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless, and that the law will permit them to have only such rights and liberties as the lawless will allow.”

the problem is that has developed a cult-like following and we conservatives keep falling for the same shit over and over again

we underestimate the effects of social media and low information voters and are dumbstruck when they get elected against all logic

she is the the face of the monster we have with the socialists - much more appealing that Sanders

that makes her very dangerous to the country



Participating in a gun buy back program because you think criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbor has too many kids

I agree. His near-overthrow of Sen. Cruz here in Texas was very unsettling to me. My adopted state used to be solid red, with blue enclaves in Austin and Houston; now that virus is spreading into all the major cities (maybe not Fort Worth) and I don't like it. Beto could be very dangerous, because he's very smooth, looks good, and isn't very threatening. He does have chinks that can be exploited, though, and I hope they get used.

Absolutely! They vote in politicians that kill the state, then move into better (redder) areas and begin to destroy those, too. They're like parasites that kill the host.

Are we maybe going a little too far off the deep end about Ms. Cortez? She's a no seniority back bencher in a party that controls at best 1/3 of the Federal Government. Her influence is much more limited than her volume of news coverage would tend to suggest.

The dangerous thing about shills like AOC and Beto is that they disappear and are unaccountable when the system the advocate for collapses. Who were Hugo Chavez's advocates? They were celebrities and power brokers. Look them up. Where are they now that Venezuela is in ashes? See what I mean? That is where AOC and Beto et al. will be when our wives, mothers, daughters etc. have to sell themselves like is happening in Venezuela. No consequences for the guilty. That is a running theme for Leftists and Democrats.

If I step back and look at the results of the last two elections, it is pretty clear to me that people are tired of career politicians. Beto almost beat Ted Cruz here in Texas and young people are looking for younger candidates. She may be vapid, she is influential, maybe not with people like me (older, white, conservative).

She ain’t no Barack and never will be. For so his faults, a lack of intelligence wasn’t one of them.

I do agree she shouldn’t be underestimated. On her own she a harmless dolt, but as a member of Congress pushing a socialist agenda with a full court propaganda press from the media backed by members with power?

Beto nearly took Texas and that scares the hell out of me. First for Texas moving so far to the left and second, Beto's national appeal. We've not hear the last of him.

It wasn't THAT close but it never should have been as close as it was, for sure.

Actually, I was quoting Chellim1--I didn't originate that statement attributed to me above (but I do agree with it).
