Democrats – Sanders Now AOC Tomorrow!

Democrats – Sanders Now AOC Tomorrow!

In what has to be the most interesting phenomena of the Sanders campaign is that many going are not going to see Sanders, they are going to see what they consider the future of America, AOC. The groundswell support for her to run in 2024 is rising, they see Sanders as a stepping stone to AOC, along with it the far-left ideology she supports.

What is amazing is if you look at the Demographics of Sander supporters, you see why this is working this way, many times the only elderly American in the crowd is Sanders, other then a very few people over 30, almost all his supporters are under 30, most are college kids that are under 25.

The most interesting of this new rise is what it is doing to politics, how it is dividing the parties even further apart. While in the past there were policies of the left and right that were interchangeable, today this is rapidly not becoming the case, everything from our economy to the military is showing the stance of both parties is so far apart there is little chance of meeting in the middle.

With AOC and her Green New Deala policy, that if implemented, would bankrupt this nation, is still pushed by many of Bernie and AOC followers, the idea of how to finance this doesn’t matter, the feeling is if you wish it, it will come.

Much of our foreign policy is seeing a radical shift, allies that once could count on us is finding both parties were in significant agreement with foreign policy, now this is not the case, allies are going to find support for them if one party wins, a loss if another does.

The problem with this is it will encourage foreign involvement with our elections, the very thing that Democrats today are so vocal in their opposition. Nations that one side supports, a great example of this is Israel, the other side has little or no support for, such countries could find their need to support one party over the other going from something that is no mentioned to them outright campaigning for.

If you look at the press today, many are not only working for the elections in November, but I think many are doubtful that Sanders or any other candidate will be able to defeat Trump, the impeachment is looking more and more like it will not succeed, so they are at the verge of admitting defeat and looking to 2024, this is where some of these writers are going now.

Many within this movement are openly calling for her to continue with politics. However, it is doubtful she will be in Congress beyond this year due to her district being swallowed up by another.

“She’s been critical to Bernie, bringing people in, especially young people,” said Springmeier. “She’s helped bring in minorities, bring some light to the fact that they don’t really have a voice. I think a lot of people are drawn to her who may not otherwise have been interested in politics, and that helps Bernie.

“I really hope she continues on the politics. She’s a force to be reckoned with. I really think she’s going to do great things for the people, for we the people. She’s working in the establishment, but I think she’s going to be speaking for us.”

As shown in Yahoo’s article about her, they show Bernie’s followers feelings towards AOC:

Wendy Stevenson, a librarian who caucused for Sanders four years ago, came to the rally with her 11-year-old daughter, Estelle, who wanted to see Ocasio-Cortez after watching a Netflix documentary about her.

“I love her vision. I love her guts to go in first term as a representative and propose the Green New Deal. It changes the way our economy will work. It’s exciting. You need that kind of energy and ideas out there. And she’s not scared to challenge the establishment. Even the Democrats, she’s pushing them further than they feel comfortable going. I love having that voice,” she said.

We see the route to the left’s demise, the fact that they are turning more and more towards the radical left. As the youth age, kids from colleges, and the constant barrage of liberal theology pressed on our youth in college come out, the more radical elements on the far left will start to move to the mainstream, in fact, it already has.

As this is done, we will see an electorate, which is more center-right or center-left start to reject any ideology that is too far to either extreme, this could pose a massive problem for AOC and the whole Democrat party in the future.

Trump has moved the GOP more towards the center, the claim that he is more to the right is nonsense, but AOC, Sanders, and others are pushing the Democrat party to the fringes on the left. Even the moderates, such as Biden, if you look at his position on paying migrants restitution, to open borders.

The Democrat Party is going to have to figure out if they are going to continue down this path, which will make it near impossible for them to win the White House again, or are they going to continue doing as they are now, trying to import a new demographic into this nation to ensure they have the votes needed to hold onto local elections, but see massive losses on a national level.
