Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants a pay raise for herself and other Government Law Makers to prevent Government Corruption? June 12, 2019

If you listen to most socialists, their thinking is typically rooted in their individual greed, if a sane person listens to the modern day Leftist, who justify most of their theft of tax dollars for a greater good, you’d notice a consistency rooted in greed, not just for money but for power. Give me your partial ownership of Property, Your Rights, Liberties, and Freedoms and I, your socialist politician will in exchange give your Social Security! It’ Marxism, nobody was forced to move into the cities where all the jobs were, nobody was forced to contribute to the industrial age, people gravitated towards it because they knew they’d be better off. People were so attracted to a Market-based economy, that many people abandoned their lives in Agriculture in pursuit of life in the cities.

Now, as this happened, individual greed set in amongst the workers who felt like they had been cheated, their standard of living got better, but they weren’t getting as rich as the owner/operators of production. The workers felt like because of the risk they took that they should be compensated, but what’s often ignored is the risks the industrialists took in order to create all that wealth, to begin with. Henry Ford took a lot of risks to get where got, Henry Ford was also the architect of modern-day car manufacturing, Ford Motor Company is no longer the largest auto manufacturer because many other car manufacturers have since duplicated Henry Ford’s concept and in many ways made it better, now the reality is when a business starts, there’s no guarantee that the business will last. Business bankruptcies happen all the time.

If a business can’t perform, that business doesn’t get a pay increase, BlackBerry led the way in smartphones for a short period of time, but now Apple and Samsung smartphones dominate that space when a private business or a private citizen doesn’t do a good job, they’re not rewarding with a pay raise. America is bankrupt and the main reason America is bankrupt revolves around public sector spending. AOC wants raises for lawmakers to prevent dark money loopholes? Which is an indication that she believes that the government she’s part of is corrupt, however, she doesn’t believe that the government should shrink, no she believes that if Lawmakers get more money from taxpayers, those lawmakers would be less inclined to succumb to special interest groups?

This is crazy cat lady talk, if you’ve ever met public servants like law enforcement officers for example who love their jobs, a lot of them could dar less about the paycheck, sure they want a livable wage, but it’s the adrenaline and the feeling they get knowing that their job is to protect the public that fuels most public servants to go to work. These people are usually good-natured, sure not all of them are, but the reason most 3rd world nations have corrupt public servants has less to do with money and more to do with them asking themselves the question is their nation is worth fighting for. People tolerate Socialism, Marxism, Authoriatiansm, Fascism, Marxism and all forms of Collectivism, but it’s not what people want deep down inside. Deep down inside we all yearn for FREEDOM!, the political argument is how do we achieve it, on Main Street, it’s been proven over and over again that throwing money at a problem doesn’t solve the problem!

This is the reason why I always talk about bartering and market economics. People will fight for Freedom when they know what Freedom isn’t. As an example recently over 1 million people took to the streets in Hong Kong, because Mainland China wants to have the ability to extradite people from Hong Kong into Mainland China to face the judicial system run by the Chinese Communist Party. Hong Kong is known for having one of the freest MARKETS in the world. The people of Hong Kong know what freedom feels like, people from Hong Kong don’t want to move to Mainland China because for them as imperfect as Hong Kong might be it’s a whole lot better than the SOCIAL SECURITY being offered by the Chinese Communist Party.

I bring this up because AOC wants raises for lawmakers to prevent dark money loopholes? She’s essentially saying that if she and her colleagues are given a pay raise, they’ll be incentivized to do a better job. Now, if people knew how important their Freedom was, wouldn’t Lawmakers feel compelled to do the right thing, because if they didn’t their own rights and freedoms would be in jeopardy? I’m sure Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez works with people that she doesn’t agree with, does she genuinely think that by giving these people a pay raise that these people will automatically conform to AOC’s social justice based ideology?

Socialist, Marxist types typically compound problems, because they forget that throwing money at a problem doesn’t fix it, in fact, it will often make the problem worse. Now, I heard of a story about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a credit rating in the low 400’s and that she was evicted from apartments, now I can’t confirm if these stories are true, but she is in student loan debt and one of the reasons that I personally don’t like the idea of Public Servants being in debt while their working for the public is that in many instances, their main objective might be to get themselves out of their current debt.

Debt weighs on you, if you’re indebted you know what I mean, you might not even know that you’re subconsciously simply wanting to alleviate yourself of your personal debts by any means necessary. But to me, she sounds like a person who wants to get out of debt as soon as possible and based on the article below:

If Ocasio-Cortez can remain in Congress for nine years and maintain her spending habits, she will likely have over a $1,000,000 net worth by the time she is 38 years old. – Fox News

It appears to me from my perspective that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t understand the concept of Freedom. Living in a Free country is a beautiful thing, having the privilege to work for the public good is a great feeling and is something that goes far beyond the money. There are plenty of people that would do the job for free, but the question remains in a democracy how do you choose the right people. The Republic which makes America such a great country revolves around volunteerism. Ever since America strayed away from Volunteerism, public and government debts began to skyrocket, now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is seeking to add on additional expenses to fulfill her own ideological beliefs, but I’d like to remind her that throwing money at problems don’t solve problems, for drug addicts giving them more money actually makes their problem worse.

Interesting times ahead.
