The socialist heroine Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already trying to push her party hard to the left and did a video telling people that she wants to take back all three chambers of government. That’s right, chambers.
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: "If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress — Uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House."— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) November 19, 2018

I didn’t realize the presidency was a ‘chamber’ of government, along with the House and the Senate. I thought it was a branch of government along with the Congress and the Judiciary.
Dummy me what was I thinking. Good thing Ocasio-Cortez is there to set me straight! 🤦♂️
But seriously though, she is already involved in the primarying of Democrats who aren’t far left enough:
FREE BEACON – Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) threw her support behind a campaign to primary fellow Democrats who are not progressive enough in a Saturday call with the progressive group Justice Democrats.
“Long story short, I need you to run for office,” Ocasio-Cortez said, according to Politico. “All Americans know money in politics is a huge problem, but unfortunately the way that we fix it is by demanding that our incumbents give it up or by running fierce campaigns ourselves. That’s really what we need to do to save this country. That’s just what it is.”
After her stunning primary victory over Rep. Joe Crowley (D., N.Y.), the House Democratic Caucus chair, Ocasio-Cortez has been vocal on her intent to challenge the Democrat establishment and push them to the left on numerous issues like climate change, campaign finance and health care. On her first day at Capitol Hill, the freshman congresswoman attended a climate change protest outside House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D., Calif.) office. Her decision to back Justice Democrat’s campaign to primary incumbent Democrats is the most recent move from Ocasio-Cortez to challenge more moderate members of the party.
That’s all we need is a more leftist Democratic Party. The further left they go, the further left the Republican Party goes too.
At some point we will be like Europe where everyone is basically on the left and we’re fighting over who’s on the right side of left vs who is hard left or in the mushy leftist middle.
