Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez to rally Democrats in deep-red Kansas

There are 32 comments on the Waco Tribune-Herald story from Friday Jul 20, titled Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez to rally Democrats in deep-red Kansas. In it, Waco Tribune-Herald reports that:

Two luminaries in the democratic socialist movement - one its national leader, the other its new star - are descending on solidly Republican Kansas on Friday, taking their emboldened liberal message to an unlikely testing ground before next month's congressional primaries. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who rose to fame following her surprise win in last month's New York congressional primary, see an opportunity to influence Democratic voters in Kansas ahead of the state's Aug. 7 primary.

It seems the Democrats (at least the most vocal) are firmly entrenched in the hands of the "Radical Far Left." Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez are rabid Socialists with agendas of dismantling Capitalism, instituting a Socialist government to pay for all of our needs. But they fail to mention it is we who will pay.

The Democratic party of today is nothing like the Democratic party was just 25 years ago. Bill Clinton would have been seen as much too moderate to ever receive their nomination for president. The Democratic party once cared about common, ordinary working men and women who are the backbone of our country.

Now they have become a party of the far, far left run by progressive elitists and morons like Tom Perez and Keith Ellison. This party is so far left that moderate Democrats are seeing this once great party become so exclusive that they no longer identify with it. Socialists are defeating established Democratic leaders in primaries.

I joined the Democratic party in 1976 and worked for Carter, and except my vote for Reagan in 1984, I voted for Democrats for president through 2004 when I noticed a trend of migration even further left. The party has continued to migrate further and further left. I left in 2008 and have voted for Republicans in the last 3 presidential elections.

I too left the dems...albeit sooner...I saw what was happening in MN in the 80ís and now make choices based solely which candidate will vote their conscience, not their partyís mantra...

I will vote mostly republican, sometimes throw a dem in there or go independent if needed...

If Uncle George thought President Obama was a disappointment. he must really be disappointed with the bug-eyed, shrill Ocasio-Cortez. I, on the other hand, hope she shows up everywhere. I want her in every Democrat political ad. Republicans need her to give them the rest of the walk away's.

Whether under a Republican or Democratic Administration, I as a middle class person has paid about 25-30% in taxes. I still manage to live well and have resources saved for the future.

I am sick and tired of being called a damn socialist because I pay my taxes and appreciate the services that my local, state and federal governments provide.

And just because I would like to see better healthcare for those who struggle to pay for it doesnít make me a socialist.

And whatís most irritating is that the folks most likely to call me a socialist are the ones enjoying Social Security and Medicare.

Sanders!! Voters already know the liberals for who they are. They are extremist matriarchs who spend every waking moment trying to drive down all men.

That's not Democratic. It's simply nuts!

...and Bernie....It's not about free education. It's about JOBS!!!! Nobody is going to get a job unless they are subordinate to the Hillary Fuhrer if a Democrat is elected.

No kidding folks! You are on the wrong side of the tracks on this one. Your fantasy of "invincible will" is a pathological mania. You push law while breaking most of them. You push family while mangling your kids with your sexual maladjustment. You push socialism while rationalizing Stalinist style pogroms.

You show your lack of leadership simply by staying in your tainted party. Start a new one that isn't based on such twisted prejudice in denial. It's your only hope.

You see what the Unions did to elementary, and secondary education. Do you want that done on a college level? And someone should tell the Socialist Democrat woman college is not free. Someone has to pay for it even if it isn't the lazy college student.

Probably 50% of our college students don't belong there. They're wasting time and money, much of which comes from our ripped off taxpayers. Democrats are economic misfits, national security ignoramuses and a threat of taking away every right we have in favor of their totalitarian, confiscatory mindset.

Well when public school, colleges, are opened up to all, even those that are not capable of college level work, yes that is a total waste of Federal money, and devalues a public school college education.

Do the idiots that advocate college for all realize that someone, someplace has to pay for the further education?

On a side note, the Leftist idiots having two last names (Ocasio-Cortez) must have a hard time naming a child they haven't killed for convenience if their mate has two, or three last names. Pretty soon they won't have room on birth certificates for the names. "Liberation" to the loons on the Left always eventually exposes itself as unrealistic and narcissistic.

I see where the Socialist Democrats have a woman working for the Republicans. This morning their dimpled darling called for the people to paint the district red. Red is a Socialist color. Democrats are blue. Republicans use red, and Democrats use blue in the U S.

Whether or not 50% of the people in college should be there is relative.

What matters is that schools are heavily biased in favor of liberalism, a college education costs a ridiculous amount, and the public should have long ago accepted that both parties are colluding to keep a pay-to-play system in place so they can keep their patronage and nepotism rules of the aristocracy in place.

Bernie is standing right next to the poster child of "Anyone but a straight, White male" and he still doesn't get it. Damaged goods, Bernie...damaged goods

YES!! The millennial commies fresh out of their indoctrination camps are hijacking the Democrat party....calling to abolish ICE, calling for the release of prisoners, bribing voters with free stuff, etc....

Thank you for ensuring our victory in November, in 2020 and beyond!!
