(TeaParty.org) – Socialism is a spectre that has been haunting our political system for over a century, but the left keeps trying to re-package it despite its blatantly obvious flaws.
One of the latest faces they’ve given socialism is the young, starry-eyed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who seems to, however clueless, seem to earnestly believe in her campaign platform.
The congressional candidate has, since her suprise primary win, captured more attention for her vapid responses to interview questions and apparent lack of knowledge on how things like the economy or the government work, but you’ve got to hand it to her that she seems sincere.
She’s also sincerely incapable of explaining how the government will pay for her proposed trillion-dollar social welfare programs.
Conservative Twitter powerhouse James Woods, just ahead of the socialist darling’s long-awaited election, recently tweeted out a short clip of Ocasio-Cortez explaining her plans for Medicare that sum up just how little she understands about…anything.
This should be in a time capsule for future generations to study. https://t.co/k8w3T0dbJq

When asked how the government will pay for Medicare-for-all, she gives an answer that she, stunningly, seems to believe is convincing. That in itself tells you everything you need to know about “the future of the Democratic party.”
“People often say: ‘how are you gonna pay for it?’” she says, “and I find the question so puzzling because how do you pay for something that’s more affordable? How do you pay for cheaper rent? You just pay for it.”
Add “paying rent” to the list of things that Alexandria doesn’t seem to understand.
“It’s not that we’re saying that this whole system is free. It is free of cost at the point of service,” she adds.
Apparently, her platform is reliant on a special socialism fairy that will just generate healthcare and other services, like education.
“So we already pay for tuition-free K through 12 and in the same way that we made a decision as a country to say we need to educate people to a 12th grade level our economy has evolved and that means we need to make the decision to educate people to a trade school or a collegiate level,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
The socialism fairy waves her wand again!
Woods only tweeted out a 1:10-minute clip…can you imagine what else she says in the full-length video?
I can’t wait for college professors to find out they’re getting paid the same amount as K-12 teachers so everyone can have free college or trade schools

It's magical thinking. She wants it, therefore it is possible. It's the same magical thinking my five year old has when faced with the idea that unicorns are not real. #LiberalLogic

Well as long as she has a solid plan like that what could go wrong?

Woods is right–we need to consider the impact this kind of thinking will impact future generations, as many young people look up to Ocasio-Cortez and think her oxymoronic system is actually feasible.
