QUESTION: Thank you so much for your insight and for Socrates~~~I am wondering why you lend any energy at all to Ocasio~~~she is both stupid AND dishonest~~~yet I think from my experience reading you that you may have some logic.
ANSWER: She actually has a greater following than Schumer or Pelosi, and they seem to be letting her run wild. My discussions in Washington were enlightening. There are many people in the Democratic Party who actually think their people want more taxes and agree with her New Green Deal. Their corporate sponsors will run in the other direction. The real damage is being created because this only adds to the polarization we see in 2020. Long-term, there is ZERO hope of ever getting back to a normal government. We have entered the realm of hate politics.
