In politics, there is no ability like relatability. Gone are the days of needing a scroll-like political resume like George H.W. Bush. This is the age of Barack Obama. He was twice elected president. This is the age of Donald Trump. He has a list of transgressions that would have sunk any candidate trying to get elected before the 21st century. But that was then. This is now.
And now is the age of social media. This is the age where a tidal wave of support can and does come from anywhere. Social media allows candidates for office to let the public see them with their blemishes. With a push of a button, you can watch Ocasio-Cortez make instant mac and cheese like a college freshman. She’s pretty. She’s young enough to understand and take advantage of this current political world. Most importantly, her naiveté about the things of government make her more appealing to the common man, not less.
Ocasio-Cortez is a socialist. Socialism is just communism dressed up in high heels and lipstick. It is a tremendous evil and a scourge upon the face of the planet. It has killed far more people than Nazism, racism, or any of the other isms combined, and America is not as far from it as you might think. Don’t believe me? Here are the Bernie Sanders versus Donald Trump polls from last election. Very scary stuff
