Socialists and whatever is left of “Mainstream Democrats” are fighting over which wing will triumph.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the self-declared socialist who defeated fourth-ranking House Democrat Joe Crowley of New York last week, shot back Sunday at a sitting Democratic senator who questioned the efficacy of embracing the far left in a presidential race.
Appearing on the Sunday morning talk show circuit on CNN, Sen. Tammy Duckworth said such a strategy would be destined for failure in the Midwest, which the Illinois Democrat said would be critical to winning a presidential race. “And I don’t think you can go too far to the left and still win the Midwest — coming from a Midwestern state,” she said.
She further opined that the socialist policies Ocasio-Cortez openly espouses are the “future of the Bronx, where she is,” and not the “industrial Midwest.”
As a rebuttal, Ocasio-Cortez pointed to the success Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., had during the 2016 Democratic primaries against Hillary Clinton.
Only the 2018 midterms will tell who is right.
Socialists in the mid-west exist in a few pockets and will never amount to anything. The Midwest is the only place left where sanity reins supreme. The left and right coasts are all pure liberal bottom feeders and will eventually cause bankruptcy in those states.
No way in hell. The socialists only have for states they can count on California, New York, Oregon, and Washington State.
The last paragraph is either stupid or a joke. What success has bernie sanders had but taking bribes. This gal is for sale!
Well… Chitown and Minneapolis have clearly gone socialist with a communist bent like NY, NJ, CT, MD and the left coast. However, the rest of the country remains comparatively American.
The question should be “Can the Midwest survive under socialism?”
Heck No !
