Ocasio-Cortez uses Christianity to promote socialism: "The GOP would throw Jesus out of Congress"

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has pushed some strange ideas in the past, but this one takes the cake. 

In a bizarre series of tweets, Ocasio-Cortez claimed that Republicans would "eject" Jesus Christ from the chamber and "malign him as a radical."

She followed that with a second tweet pushing her socialist agenda disguised as Christian virtue.

"When politicians use faith as an excuse to pass and uphold laws that seize control of people’s bodies but not guarantee them healthcare, feed the poor, shelter the homeless, or welcome the stranger, you have to wonder if it’s really about faith at all," she said. 

The Daily Wire points out that 99 percent of the Republicans in Congress identify as Christian, so it's unlikely they would expel Christ from Congress no matter what ideas he promoted. 

But there's an even bigger problem with Ocasio-Cortez's claims. She implies that Christ would be in favor of socialism -- policies she believes will "guarantee healthcare," "feed the poor," "shelter the homeless," and "welcome the stranger." Christ, in other words, would be in favor of big government, according to Ocasio-Cortez.

While it's true that Jesus encouraged his followers to care for the orphans and widows and the poor, he nowhere mentions in Scripture that the government should provide any of these things. The early church shared everything they had with one another, but they weren't forced to do so by big government. They sold their possessions and gave the money to the poor because they made that decision of their own free will. 

For Ocasio-Cortez, these actions should be compelled by the government. Rather than promote true virtue -- choosing to treat others as better than ourselves -- these socialist policies would promote the opposite. They would remove our ability to choose to do the right thing and replace virtue with government-compelled redistribution. 

Unfortunately, many Americans seem to have been fooled by these lies about socialism. They want to help those less fortunate, and they've been tricked into signing on to the socialist agenda. 

That's why we must construct a firewall against socialism before it's too late. Right now, with a majority in Congress and the White House, politicians like Ocasio-Cortez could move forward with their big-government agenda.

Rather than rely on maintaining a majority year after year, we need a permanent solution. We need constitutional amendments proposed by a Convention of States.

A Convention of States is called by the states under Article V of the Constitution and has the power to propose constitutional amendments that effectively and permanently limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government. These amendments can prohibit socialist policies by keeping the federal government in its constitutional box. They won't be able to legislate on any topic not expressly mentioned in the Constitution, leaving policies like healthcare and welfare up to the states.

Millions of Americans have voiced their support, and 15 of the necessary 34 states are on board. To join the movement, sign the petition below!

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
