I think "performatively" she's out performing Cruz. But that just me.:D
I think if you are stuck with Cruz and you are in need, you don't care.

At this point out performing Cruz just involves wanting to do your job.

If I were Cruz, I'd just go into witness protection at this point
I think you misspelled "witless" there.

I looked at the comments on a N***M*x story on Alexandria's Texas relief efforts, and boy-howdy is she an evil, stupid person who is only helping people for the sake of political gain.

Those folks can be the first to go without any necessary water and supplies from the almost $5 million she raised. Stupid asshats. 🤬

It's sad to say, but conservatives in this state will not learn from Ted Cruz's/Texas GOP failures and AOC's help during the winter storm. They don't see it that way. Republicans have lied and scared them so much with "socialism" that they would freeze to death to own the libs.

I saw so many people defending Ted Cruz on social media, and demonizing AOC even as she was at the Houston Food Bank volunteering her time. They made comments that she was only doing it for political gain and a photo op. Like I said, they are so used to Republican leaders in this state doing NOTHING for them that someone actually helping and volunteering their time looks like a photo op for political gain. They would rather vote for Ted Cruz who does NOTHING as long as he is against "socialism" and allowing them to keep their guns.

I really don't know how these people will ever be convinced that the GOP doesn't care about them. They literally let all of us freeze for days and they blame AOC and the Green New Deal. It's a no win situation because these people have been lied to for so long and brainwashed for so long by right wing conspiracies. It's pretty much a lost cause at this point.

Let me be the first to say that I fully support their attempts to accomplish this.

… Like I said, they are so used to Republican leaders in this state doing NOTHING for them that someone actually helping and volunteering their time looks like a photo op for political gain. …

Perhaps the feeling is “Look at these people helping us – what if something bad happens somewhere else and they expect us to help others some time, and what if it is people we don't like?”

I think the media has conflated Trump's supposed popularity with how terrified the right is of socialism while not even knowing what they are talking about when using that word. Personally, I think a good percentage of the 77 million votes that went to Trump should instead be given to the fear of the socialist/communist/marxist left that their news media talks about nonstop.

They don’t seem to realize that it’s the authoritarian aspect of communism that is the problem. They vote for a wannabe dictator like Trump. Have we not realized that the “red scare” in the 1950s was just fear-mongering? That the 80s arms race is over with the USSR?

Communism falls apart due to the rampant corruption. Now,the sort of capitalism we are building may just as well fall apart for similar reasons.

He def won FL on this fear of socialism. The Texas mayor's letter equating a governmental response with a hand out is the insane mindset some people adopted. In my view, anarcho capitalism loses its charm the moment you realize your own mortality.
