Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, upset winner over ten-term Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley in New York's 14th congressional district, touted her progressive democratic-socialism as "the wave of the future. Capitalism is a fleeting phenomenon. Its fundamentally unfair distribution of wealth will be replaced by a democratic reallocation in the not too distant future."
"The notion that individuals should be free to exploit their abilities and efforts for personal enrichment without being required to share the benefits with those less able or willing to work as hard is socially unjust," she argued. "Marx recognized this. That's why he designed a system calling for a collective aggregation of wealth that would be distributed on the basis of need. The one glitch in his system is that it calls for a dictatorship of the proletariat to decide who will do what work and who will be allocated what compensation. My idea is to replace the dictatorship with a democratic process where the votes of the majority will make these decisions."
"Under democratic-socialism voters will decide who can open a business, who it will employ, and how its profits will be distributed," the congressional candidate explained. "That's why it's important to erase international borders. There are desperately poor people all over the world. Until we have a world government that can transfer wealth from rich places like the United States to poor places like Latin America we have to allow those who can get here on there own to enter the country without restrictions or harassment by ICE. The upside of open borders is that it will accelerate the transformation to socialism as more immigrants will add their votes to cause of collectivism."

Shooting Star ,look ,Oh it’s gone
“or willing to work as hard [or at all] is socially unjust”
It’s not at all unfare, to the person who works for 40, 50 70 hours a week, and has half his money confiscated and given to the entitled class.
She is as stupid as people say. Find some videos of her and shake your head of her pure ignorance.
