America loves a big prize fight, especially between heavyweight boxers. There’s something about watching two behemoths bludgeon each other inside a boxing ring that really gets the people going.
A lot of casual fans may not realize that the popularity of boxing depends on the popularity of the heavyweights….
Right now, for the first time in decades, heavyweight boxing is starting to gain a little popularity—but it’s a far cry from it’s agreed-upon heyday.
One of the best times for heavyweight boxing was the late 80s and early 90s when the weight class was one fire. We had Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Riddick Bowe, the return of George Foreman…there wasn’t a fight that wasn’t a moneymaker during that time.
Now, a new sport has emerged over the century and a half since pro-boxing became one of America’s biggest sports…but it’s probably not what you’re thinking.
Some people are expecting me to start talking about MMA, but I’m not.
No, politics has become America’s newest and BIGGEST sport—and as always, there’s nothing better than seeing a matchup between some of the most prominent heavyweights in the game.
The NEW Sport Taking America By Storm!
You don’t think politics is a sport?
There are two sides (teams) convinced of their superiority and that they can beat the other in all aspects. They dress up in outfits supporting their team, and there are even team colors and mascots!
They even meet in the stadium-like atmosphere of the Capitol Building.
Don’t tell me politics isn’t America’s newest pastime. All you have to do is look at the ratings, and it’ll be undeniable
Now, there are a bunch of heavyweight contenders in the sport of politics—but not everyone can be champion.
But any confrontation between two contenders can lead to them moving up the card, closer and closer to that main event that happens every four years.
When it comes to the undercard, though, the fights are still exciting and can set the tone for years to come.
So, with one of these crucial matches in the works, the entire political world is waiting with bated breath to see how it’s going to work out.
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has basically been a heavyweight contender since walking into Congress over two years ago. She came in swinging with a lot of spunk and chutzpah, but very little skill to back up that energy.
But it’s gotten her pretty far in a short time, so who am I to argue with her style?
But recently, we had another contender show up on the OPPOSITE side of the aisle: Marjorie Taylor Greene, or as we’re going to call her, MTG.
MTG has also come into Congress like a housefire, melting down snowflakes with her remarks and her views.
The two Representatives have been in each other’s orbits lately, and MTG decided to fire the first salvo, challenging AOC to a debate over her Green New Deal.
The Georgian GOP member posted a picture on Twitter where she said, “I’m glad I ran into you today @AOC to plan our debate about the Green New Deal. After I finish reading all 14 pages, like we agreed, I’ll schedule time for our debate. #MTGvsAOC”
I’m glad I ran into you today @AOC to plan our debate about the Green New Deal.

What pushed this challenge?
Well, it was AOC herself. MTG took umbrage with the fact that the New York Democrat attributed climate change to racism.
Ocasio-Cortez said, “The climate crisis is a crisis born of injustice, and it is a crisis born of the pursuit of profit at any and all human and ecological cost. Which means that we must recognize in legislation that the trampling of indigenous rights is a cause of climate change, that the trampling of racial justice is a cause of climate change. Because we are allowing people, and we are allowing ourselves, to deny ourselves human rights and deny people the right to health care, the right to housing and education.”
If you’re confused by this ridiculous and senseless statement, don’t worry—a lot of people are…
Which may be why MTG decided to take this fight to the debate stage.
The only question is: Will AOC accept?
So far, she has yet to accept an invitation to debate anyone, so don’t hold your breath.
However, I’m excited about this matchup. I think MTG is a pitbull that won’t relent on AOC…
Let’s hope her tactics will get her into the ring!

The problem with our government is that it’s chock-full of career politicians. These people don’t have a clue about the real-life problems that most Americans deal with each and every day. It would be good to see them get some experience in real life before becoming an elected official. It’s awesome to see politicians leave office, get life experience, and then come back to prominence after living life in the real world. This one did it… and you’ll never guess what she’s telling Americans. Watch her revealing video here…
