What is happening also is a concerted focus on local elections & getting a foothold on city councils, etc...
The People's Republic of Boulder has literally taken the state government here through years of this. 70% of the state's voters reject an Oil & Gas ban? No biggie when you hold the Governorship, House & Senate. Just ram it through 2 months after you're elected. F the 7 out of 10 people against the measure!
I'm convinced that our 23 year old daughter has now surpassed AOC in terms of real world awareness, thank god.
She did (our daughter) say last night that she just didn't understand why some of the companies didn't just keep people paid as long as they could facepalm, but she does at least understand that owning property means something, which AOC clearly does not.
