Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t wait to tweet out the differences between socialism and capitalism … or the cost of capitalism … or something.
You know what? We’re not even sure what the Hell she’s trying to say here but it’s probably safe to assume she is saying socialism is good and capitalism is bad.
When the public democratically decides to invest in ourselves, in working people, they call it socialism.
When a billionaire-captured government forces the public to pay for their misdeeds at the expense of working people, they just call it the cost of capitalism. https://t.co/nUgMpRBiYB

AOC, that’s not how this works.
That’s not how any of this works.
Thankfully, we're not a democracy; which is aptly described as 2 wolves and a sheep making dinner plans. But to your broader point, it is indeed wrong to have government intervene in the market. GM should have been allowed to go under. Ditto Chrysler and Ma and Pa Kettle's farm.

Humans can't survive without food. Humans can survive without cars. Big difference.

Oh, why even bother at this point?
No, when you FORCE people to pay for everyone else they call it socialism. Fixed it for you. ?

Apparently, investing in ourselves means giving the keys of the country to an ex-bartender sock puppet who's proven to be terrible at just about everything except Twitter.

Oh honey. America has NEVER voted in any way to go to socialism!! Who told you that.

Everyone agrees government and corporations are in bed at the expense of people everywhere.
Everyone also agrees that socialism is not the answer, not is wanted by the American people.
The two are not mutually exclusive.

If you applied this same energy to ensuring and enhancing opportunity instead of redistribution via govt… you might actually be able to do some good.

But then she wouldn’t be able to write edgy tweets about socialism and stuff!
