My Take on Hillary

hillary-clinton

[Caption to photo above: “Hillary in a Panic.” Did she break a nail? Did she find out that the FBI was on their way over and is desperately trying to delete emails? Did Bill just tell her about his latest tryst? You decide.]

I have nothing against Hillary Clinton, personally. I do think she is married to a man that lacks integrity. Why he wasn’t kicked out of office, after being impeached, is beyond me. A man of integrity would have resigned, as Richard Nixon did. Yet, the Democrats want to reward him by putting him back in the White House as a First Spouse. Unbelievable.

People forget, and most millennials have never known, that the prosperity enjoyed under Bill Clinton was left over from the Reagan years. When Ronald Reagan took office in 1981, we had endured the failed presidency of Jimmy Carter. During those four years, we sat in long lines waiting to buy gasoline because there was an oil crisis. No one but rich people could afford to buy a house because there was both an economic crisis and a housing crisis. And Americans were ashamed and humiliated abroad because there was an Iranian hostage crisis which, apparently, our President could do nothing about. Everything then was a crisis.

Reagan came in and turned things around economically, internationally and politically. People went back to work with salaries that were the highest in history, so there was prosperity at home. The Berlin Wall came down and the Cold War ended, so there was the spread of democracy abroad. And, remarkably, Republicans and Democrats in Washington began working together and getting things done because Reagan knew how to bring people together. Americans felt good about being Americans.

Both George H. Bush and Bill Clinton enjoyed the benefits of Reaganomics during their terms as President. But it was amazing how quickly Republicans, and especially George W. Bush, forgot the lessons we had learned under Reagan. Now, Hillary and the Democrats want to go back to those depressing Carter years. Reagan taught us that when it comes to government, less is more – yet, Hillary wants to increase the size of government. He taught us that lowering taxes stimulates the economy – yet, Hillary wants to raise taxes. He taught us that America is a shining city on a hill, spreading the principles of freedom and democracy to the rest of the world – yet, Hillary wants us to believe that America is just another nation among the rest.

Look at Hillary’s record. She was Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013. During that time, the world became a much more dangerous place. We’ve seen the rise of ISIS, civil war in Syria where hundreds of thousands of civilians including children have been slaughtered, the breakdown of the entire Middle East including our allied nations, the flooding of refugees into Europe, the rise of Russian and Chinese aggression, continued threats from Iran and North Korea – in short, the setting of the stage for World War 3. This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton and her successor, John Kerry, both part of the Obama administration.

How much more evidence do we need? Do we need to talk about Benghazi? The Clinton email scandal? Her conflict of interest with the Clinton Foundation? Her campaign finances as a senator? The fact that the Secret Service hates her? Clinton’s reputation as a lawyer? What is it going to take for people to realize that the Clintons are not good for this country? And that a Clinton presidency would be even more crisis-ridden, even more disastrous than Carter’s?

Just let a thinking person bring up any of the multitude of logical objections to a Clinton presidency, and all the Democrats can do is cry, “Racist!” or “Sexist!” or “Hater!” or “Bigot!” My, my, isn’t a one-word vocabulary marvelous?

      Right on target. It might interest everyone, even the liberals that are self deceived, to look up what Ronald Reagan accomplish during his tenure in office. Comparing what he did with the Obama admin. is like an Astronaut compared to a schoolgirl with a paper airplane.

    Everything you said is true. However, Hillary will be elected in November for a variety of reasons.
    1. She has the black vote.
    2. A large section of educated, non married, young women WILL turn out to vote for her. It seems that Trump’s personality is a negative among many females.
    3. Hispanics will largely vote for her.
    4. All Muslims will vote for her.
    5. All the fringe groups will vote for her.
    6. Government workers will vote for her.
    7. The unionized vote will largely vote for her.
    8. Intellectuals (academic etc) will vote for her.
    9. Trump seems to be loosing the college educated voter.
    10. The political elites are working for her (the Bush family etc).
    11. The demographics of the US have changed dramatically since Reagan.
    12. The influence of religion on our culture has changed dramatically.
    13. The new world order (global elites) have given her full support.

    Welcome to President Clinton.

    Everything YOU say is true.

    However, things are not always what they seem, especially in politics, and especially when the liberal Media are involved. It amazes me how when you change news sources, the story of who is winning and by how much changes.

    It may indeed APPEAR that things are as you say. However, there have been a lot of elections in the past that looked like one candidate had it in the bag, and the other candidate won. Also, a lot of elections have been determined in the last two months.

    Bottom line: it’s in God’s hands. If He wants Hillary to win, she will, regardless of polls or anything else. If He wants Trump to win, he will. If Hillary wins, who knows what His plan for her is. Maybe He just wants to set the stage for a landslide victory for the Republicans in 2020. If Trump wins, again, who knows. I honestly don’t think it will make a great deal of difference to you and me in the long run.

    My main interest in seeing Trump win is to see what he will do. I know what Hillary will do. I will be bored stiff for the next four years watching her try to walk in Obama’s footsteps. But Trump – he could end up doing some really interesting things – some things that could change the course of history for America in a good way. I can see him backing commercial space travel in a big way, and other innovative ideas. I don’t see Hillary doing anything innovative at all. It’s a shame an otherwise good guy – at least on the surface – can get steamrolled in this country the way he is by the Democrats and the Media. But that is what Democrats do best.

    Thanks for your comments, Mike. I enjoyed them.
