    She is actually more transparent than most, imo. She isn't lying about what she wants or taking steps to get there so you don't see the end goal. She's just laying out her plan and screw you if you don't like it. I can respect that. I don't agree with a single policy of hers, but I like her. And selfishly, I want her to be the media darling to help people see what bare democratic socialism is shooting for.



    Nice whataboutism. Way to address the topic.
    I use to think the same about her until I learned she commutes from NY to DC using air travel. She is a fraud. If she really believed what she claims about climate change she would be a loyal train commuter. It calls into question what else she is insincere about.

    AOC is a puppet. Nominated and auditioned for the part she is playing.

    OAC is a likable young lady, but she's a bit short of a full tool bag when it comes to reality.

    This site is Debate Politics. AOC is a politician - and the Demo poster-girl , billed as the future of the party. So what is wrong with subjecting her words and deeds to scrutiny? I understand that some lefties think her an embarrassment but that's their problem.

    Can you explain the Libertarian obsession with AOC? he is a young freshman congressman from a district the GOP does not have a chance of winning. What is with the libertarian obsession about her?

    No one is obsessed with her. She happens to say or do something on a near daily basis that keeps her in the news.

    AOC is a prominent and highly vocal enemy of liberty. So it is entirely natural that libertarians notice her.

    The number of daily threads with AOC as the subject from right wingers says otherwise.

    What is your view of "liberty" that you see here as a threat to?
