I actually love a lot of AOC’s ideas.
I love how she stimulates a conversation.
But...
I also love how far right-wingers stimulate conversation.
It’s the extremes that start the conversations. It’s the “middles” who get things done.
Unfortunately CNN, Fox, and people on Facebook present factual information from very slanted points of view and that keeps us divided. These media sources make it look like most people are on the far right or far left and demons if not agreeing with their points of view. I believe most Americans are relative Centrists, blowing to one side or the other of center depending on how their wallets are doing.
I look at Facebook one time a week now. I don’t even read my local paper any more. My morning reading now consists of: South China Morning Post, The Guardian, Al Jazeera News, and various Russian news sources. They present meaningful global news and are not so caught up in the (in my opinion) day to day ramblings of US far right and far left media darlings.
