How do you stop an idea?

The idea of AOC being a "domestic terrorist" has already been introduced.

The insane group of people who believe this idea will continue to believe it despite the apology/retracted statement.

Angry Trumpublicans will allow this idea of AOC being a domestic terrorist to fester in their minds.

They will act on thief unfounded idea.

Republicans are responsible for any harm that comes her way.

I didn't know her cooking was that bad to be labeled as such.

Petrous's comment is disgusting in light of the situation.

The republican party has lost it's mind. It is infected with a terminal case of stupidity, which has progressed into a cult of stupidity. It can not be saved. You are either fighting this disease or you are enabling it.

Kinda sad how there's a baseline of death threats, and then a spike whenever some right-wing wacko tweets about her.

This is just dumb, AOC is obviously a revolutionary.

She's certainly scaring the crap out of minority percentage of Republican voters who have a college education.

If the under-educated majority voter base ever figures out what the educate donor base is doing to them, there'll be hell to pay.

Besides engaging AOC (she will flame out on her own and AIPAC will make sure of it, just like iwth Ilhan Omar), the biggest mistake these children made was apologizing. They only chummed the waters and will now have targets on their backs for the rest of their lives. Hope they never try to apply for a job.

Children? Really? Apologizing? Puhleeze... she is only a couple years older than they are... ergo... they are not children... stop being stupid.

As for the rest of your psychic diatribe... you don't know any of that.

What is it with you clowns? You can't address the issues... you have to pull senseless crap and wishful thinking out of the ether of your anger.

No one has ever heard her say she wants a revolution, she wants progress which the rich white Republicans don't want because it is going to cost them $$$. So they get tools like you to attack her over and over but so far your attacks don't seem to be working, she's still popular and is the leader most of the young people are listening to. She represents the future while your party represents the worst parts of our past.

This country was snatched from the British and founded by revolutionaries. We need more like her in government.

I definitely think it is strong women that throw them into a frenzy. They get into a similar frenzy over Hillary or Pelosi.

Not to say that the brown doesn't make them extremely uncomfortable. They would not accuse them Hillary or Pelosi of being "domestic terrorists". But that is just the Republican Party's racism showing through.

This happens on both sides every time. Why would you be as stupid as this to try to make it a biased situation?

Also, now maybe she understands how that family felt during the Trayvon situation when that ultra-Liberal person tweeted out the wrong address of Zimmerman's family. It sucks when it happens to you, doesn't it?

Republican terrorists are just throwing that term around and seeing where it sticks. Too bad it only stick to them.

Why should it only cost a few Americans money? Shouldnt any socialistic programs cost everyone the same percentage of income?

If this is what it took to get actual demsoc policy passed, i'd take the deal. But you have to at least acknowledge the argument on the other side, which is that flat taxes disproportionately impact low and middle earners who spend a larger percentage of their income.

For me, depends on the policy, but I agree.

I guess I'm more of an meanie here, but to be honest, I dont care how it impacts other Americans. In my world, we are all equal and we should contribute, if we are going to have this "village" concept, we should contribute equally.

Explain your reasoning.

We are all equal Americans, so we should pay an equal percentage out of whatever income we all receive.

Glad to hear you say it. Lets start by having no income cap on social security taxes, and having it apply to ALL income, earned or unearned. That includes income from inheritance.

Then we can move to having capital gains and dividends treated the same as regular income instead of getting special treatment at lower rates that people who actually work for their income.

Thanks for your honesty. I'm serious. Most people wouldn't admit that and would spend hours twisting themselves in knots trying to defend themselves. Have a great weekend!

AOC reps the Bronx. The Bronx is Puertorrican territory. AOC is Puertorrican. They'll never get rid of AOC. There will be more Hispanics voted into Congress as the years go by. GOP and DNC moderates are deeply afraid of AOC because she really wants to change the way government run roughshod over their constituents.

For DNC moderates, what has Pelosi done for you personally?

How about for GOP? What has Trump done personally for you?

As a Hispanic-American, no white politician has done anything for me. Quite frankly, Obama didn't do anything for me, either. Yes, I have black blood in me. It's time for change. If we don't do anything about the current ebb we find ourselves as a nation today, I'm not fighting in a dumbass civil war for the rich white man. We're already ready to go hide in the mountains and the underground. Y'all want to kill yourselves off, have at it. I'll be sipping Bustelo and tokin' big bambu in my cabin, pendejos.

Some facts

There are more than one type of tax
Different taxes hit different people and groups of people differently
People in different parts of the country pay different taxes
People with different incomes pay different taxes
People with different lifestyles pay different taxes

Therefore, there really is no such thing as a "flat tax"

In fact, the middle income pays more as a percentage of their income than the rich in most situations

You have been educated.
