Proof Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is Wrong for America

I knew Mike Root. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is no Mike Root.

My uncle Mike Root died a few days ago. He was not only a great family man, but the personification of American exceptionalism. Mike proved the American Dream is real. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (aka AOC) is the socialist darling of the moment. You couldn’t find more polar opposites. 

This is a teachable moment.

Mike was one of seven children born to my grandparents Anna and Louis Root in Brownsville, Brooklyn in the early 1900’s. These seven Jewish kids in Brooklyn were born into abject poverty. 

Then it got worse. Their father Louis Root died of a heart attack. My grandmother was left penniless with seven young mouths to feed. There was no welfare, no food stamps, no Medicaid, no Social Security. 

Yet unlike AOC and her Socialist friends who want to turn America into Cuba or Venezuela, those seven penniless kids never complained, never protested, never made excuses, never blamed “racism.” All seven young kids got a job to pay the bills. Those seven kids took care of their mother’s bills for the rest of her life.
