    Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who the former chairman of the Democrat Party said was the "future" of their party, is slamming critics who are warning that the Democrat Party has a "woke problem," saying that it's "dangerous" to think that way.

    AOC's remarks come after top Democrat strategist James Carville warned last week, following Republicans blowing out Democrats in races across the country, that the party has a "wokeness" problem.

    "What went wrong is this stupid wokeness," Carville said. "Don't just look at Virginia and New Jersey. Look at Long Island, look at Buffalo, look at Minneapolis. Even look at Seattle, Washington. I mean, this defund the police lunacy, this take Abraham Lincoln's name off of schools, that - people see that."

    "And it's just - really have a suppressive effect all across the country to Democrats. Some of these people need to go to a woke detox center or something. They're expressing language that people just don't use. And there's a backlash and a frustration at that," he continued. "And we have got to change this and not be about changing dictionaries, and change laws. And these faculty lounge people that sit around mulling about I don't know what are - they're not working. Look what happened in Buffalo, again, Seattle. I think the Republicans may have won a city attorney's race in Seattle, the autonomous zone."

    "Who could even think of something that stupid? And they're suppressing our vote," he concluded. "And I have got news for you. You're hurting the party. You're hurting the very people that you want to help."

    Ocasio-Cortez originally responded to Carville's remarks on Friday by saying that "wokeness" was a term "almost exclusively used by older people these days."

    "Like the average audience for people seriously using the word 'woke' in a 2021 political discussion are James Carville and Fox News pundits, so that should tell you all you need to know," she claimed. "And before people disingenuously complain 'woke' is denigrating to older people, it's actually pundits like Carville using terms like 'woke' to insult voters under 45 that's denigrating."

    Ocasio-Cortez continued her rant about wokeness on Sunday, claiming that it was dangerous for people to think that Democrats have a wokeness problem.

    "One dangerous aspect of thinking there's a 'woke problem' is that Dem chances for re-election or majorities in House, Senate, & WH rely on the racial justice issue of voting rights. Dems distancing from racial justice makes protection of voting rights less likely, ensuring losses," she claimed without evidence. "'Woke' is a term pundits are now using as a derogatory euphemism for civil rights & justice. Making up a 'woke' problem results in putting civil & voting rights on the backburner. In a year state legislatures are planning out GOP majorities & voter suppression, that's dangerous."

    She concluded, "People think Fox News is just about indoctrinating right-wingers, but it's also about conditioning Dems on what to run away from. Framing racial justice as 'controversial' is key to delaying the protection of voting rights (& others) until it's too late. We shouldn't indulge it."

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
