Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been all over the news in recent months, paraded around by mudstream media like a freshly cooked side of beef.
Many people, however, observe that her comments reveal she has a very loose grasp on reality. For example:
– She compares the caravan of migrants amassing at our southern border to Jewish families fleeing Nazi Germany.
Such a comparison is horribly disrespectful of the Jewish people.
– She compares her election victory to Moon landing
That’s like comparing a Toyota Prius to a $54 million yacht. Let’s examine why:
EFFORT: When you think of Apollo 11, the first thing that probably comes to mind is Neil Armstrong’s fateful first words from the Moon: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” It’s important to remember, though, that Apollo 11’s Moon landing was the culmination of DECADES of work by hundreds of thousands of people working across dozens of science, technology, and engineering disciplines.
COST: Back in 1973, the total cost of the Apollo program reported to Congress was $25.4 billion. By far the most expensive parts of the mission were the Apollo spacecraft (the Command Modules, the Lunar Modules) and the monstrous Saturn V launch vehicles. A single Saturn V launch cost up to $375 million in 1969 — or, in today’s money, A FEW BILLION DOLLARS ($2.61 billion, to be exact).
That’s two thousand times more than the $1.8 million spent on Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign. That’s like claiming you own a $54 Million yacht in in reality, all you own is a $27,000 Prius.
AOC’s delusions of grandeur, hyper-inflated sense of self-worth, and inability to place things within their proper context render her wholly unsuitable for service in Congress. Despite having studied economics in school, she has absolutely zero sense for figures, no concept of finances, budgeting, or sense of proportion. Finally, her complete and utterly lack of understanding with respect to the inherent nature of socialism render her utterly incompatible with the Constitution of the United States of America and the principles upon which this nation was founded and absolutely required to keep our nation running smoothly.
Now, let’s see if she’s a liar. If she takes her Congressional Oath of Office in our Republic yet continues to claim she supports socialism, she’s a liar. Can she REALLY…
“…support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic?” Or is she more likely to be the domestic enemy trying to undermine our Constitution in order to advance her wacko socialist beliefs that stand in utter opposition to our Constitutional principles?
The oath used today has not changed since 1966 and is prescribed in Title 5, Section 3331 of the United States Code. It reads:
“I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
Once again, ignorant Democrats have done a grave disservice to the people of the United States of America.
It was a distinct honor, as well as my pleasure, to serve my country for more than twenty years. I love my country, but sometimes I'm not too happy with its leaders. I'm working to change that, and I could use your help. Please join me!
Thanks. : )
