A few years ago Alexandria Ocosta Cortez made her way to Washington as the premier progressive liberal socialist and made waves as a young fireball that wasn’t afraid to challenge the establishment in D.C. and take on the big corporations she claimed were screwing over everyday Americans.
Now, the Conservative movement has their own AOC in newly elected Congresswoman Lauren Boebert from the Western slope of Colorado. Oh, and by the way, she will be walking into the House chamber with a gun on her hip!
She has already claimed that taxation is theft and has been her own fireball on Twitter and the campaign trail as she blazed her way through a primary where she defeated a 5 term sitting Congressman, and then pulled out the victory in November of 2020. She now represents the extreme conservative view in the House and will be a challenger to Ocosta Cortez and her band of progressive socialists.
Lauren Boebert is a Coloradoan living on the Western Slope who believes in personal freedom, citizen rights, and upholding the Constitution of the United States. She is the founder, owner, and operator of Shooters Grill, a restaurant that earned national notoriety for staff that proudly open carry as they serve their customers. She gained additional recognition in September 2019 by attending presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s rally to tell him directly: “Hell, no, you won’t take our guns.” When Colorado’s liberal state government voted for the state to join the National Popular Vote Compact and hand our votes for President of the United States to California, Lauren became the second-largest signature gatherer (over 229,000 signatures were gathered statewide), ensuring that voters would have the opportunity to repeal NPV this fall. If repealed, it will be the first time since the 1930’s that a law was repealed via citizen petition. Lauren is active in her church and has spent years counseling at-risk women at the local jail, encouraging them to become self-sufficient and productive members of society who do not depend on government assistance. She is an avid supporter of President Trump and his policies to Make America Great Again.https://laurenforcolorado.com/about
She has positioned herself and is ready for the duel against the progressive socialist wing in the House of Representatives. She will officially take office on January 5th when the new Congress convenes, but she has already made a name for herself.
