[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?
