    Everyone should have all of their debt erased, too.

    Oh no! IDEALISM! It must be stopped!

    We must instead put all our efforts to building a giant 2000 mile long transparent concrete wall that will be paid for by people we are attempting to keep out of our country!

    Everyone should have at least a 3000 sq ft house.

    Was that in there too? I missed that!

    Wow, Ocasio Cortez sure is wacky, isn't she? It's hilarious.

    It's even more hilarious when she forgets to include REALLY CRAZY stuff like a "3000 square ft house" and "everyone's debt being forgiven".

    How about a profit sharing plan that extends below vice president level.

    Idealism divorced from reality is dangerous.

    Look at Venezuela.

    OR Trump! Trump promised the sky and pretty much everyone with more than a high school education knew it was not even close to realistic.

    No one seriously believed Mexico would pay for his fantasy wall.
    No one who knows anything about coal believed coal jobs would come back in force as he promised.
    No one seriously believed he had secured North Korean denuclearization after his photo op meeting.

    I agree idealism can be bad. But it's not a bad idea to start from the big ask and see how much you can get.

    Hey, it's good enough for CEO's who violate corporate ethics and get pushed out the door!

    With the idiocy that’s in there, I figured that those things in there would fit right in.

    Sure, I mean, that makes sense.

    Can't argue with solid logic. If someone says some things I don't agree with I often just make up even sillier stuff about them and use it to criticize the points I don't agree with!
