Ronald Reagan had people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, and Candi CdeBaca in mind when he said:
“It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.”

“I don’t believe our current economic system actually works. Um, capitalism by design is extractive and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system, something has to be exploited, that’s land, labor or resources…And I think that we’re in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we have to move into something new, and I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources and distribution of those resources…And whatever that morphs into is I think what will serve community the best and I’m excited to usher it in by any means necessary.”Denver councilwoman candidate Candi CdeBaca
