Supporting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
HellHippie supports a number of individuals whom we think are worthy of lots of support! Our first documented person for “Following Always” is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Congresswoman for NY-14 (the Bronx & Queens).
We stand with AOC as she fights for hard working citizens of the USA that need representation and a modern health care system!

I know what it’s like to access the privilege of a ZIP Code but also be born in one that could have destined me to something else.
I’m not running from the left; I’m running from the bottom. I am running in fierce advocacy for working-class New Yorkers.
Congress is too old. They don’t have a stake in the game.
I don’t think most of Congress understands how economics works.
It’s really scary or it’s easy to generate fear around an idea or around an -ism when you don’t provide any substance to it.
The Republicans galvanize their base by inciting a lot of fear; they operate on a lot of mythmaking. So we have to have something compelling. We shouldn’t be afraid to be bold.
When we talk about the word ‘socialism,’ I think what it really means is just democratic participation in our economic dignity and our economic, social, and racial dignity. It is about direct representation and people actually having power and stake over their economic and social wellness, at the end of the day.Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes
Before ICE, we had Immigration and Naturalization Services, but it wasn’t until about 1999 that we chose to criminalize immigration at all. And then, once ICE was established, we really kind of militarized that enforcement to a degree that was previously unseen in the United States.
We have a political culture of intimidation, of favoring, of patronage, and of fear, and that is no way for a community to be governed.
