Ignore AOC At Your Peril

Identity politics is dividing the nation like never before. Hate upon hate. IBM* has to be concerned with fixing the individual. AOC is the new voice for those under 30, our demarcation line in the late 60s. Some of her ideas, like changing laws about drugs and removing non-violent drug offenders from prison are spot on. AOC advocates for free college tuition at public universities. She is a Bernie Sanders socialist who actually walks the walk. With student loan debt now exceeding credit card debt, young men and women are caught up in an economy where they are tens of thousands of dollars in debt before beginning their careers, with the prospect of never getting ahead or being in position to buy houses and support families. She and Trump are left and right bookends. The right wing ignores her at their peril. As baby boomers, we are beginning to die off, and millenials are now a larger social group, though not as politically active yet. That may change as early as 2020, as conflict seems to be accelerating. I hope she remains a Ron Paul like independent voice in the House of Representatives to keep the rest of us honest.
