On Sunday, April 12th, Hillary officially entered the A.D. 2016 Presidential race by releasing her two-minute, Getting Started video:
According to Hillary,
“Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top.”
First, Americans have not “fought their way back from tough economic times.” It may be that our current economy is not declining at the same rate as was true in A.D. 2008-2009, but the economy remains stagnant and, for most Americans, the Great Recession seems to persist. The “fighting” isn’t over because “tough economic times” aren’t over. I won’t say that Hillary’s comment about the “tough times” is necessarily a lie, but it’s close.
However, second, Hillary surprised me by saying something true: “the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top”.
Indeed. The deck is “stacked in favor of those at the top”. That’s because political campaign contribution laws allow “those at the top” to bribe Congressmen, Senators and even Presidents to enact or enforce laws that “favor those at the top”. Having been a Senator from New York, Hillary should understand political bribery.
Coming from Hillary, that truthful statement still seems surprising and perhaps disingenuous because Hillary is one of “those at the top”. Between herself and her husband, Bill, one or the other has been 1) Attorney General from Arkansas; 2) Governor (and First Lady) of Arkansas; 3) President (and First Lady) of the United States; 4) Senator from New York; and Secretary of State. More, she and Bill are multi-millionaires. If Hillary isn’t one of “those at the top,” who is?
Seeing that Bill and Hillary have struggled all their lives to become members of “those at the top,” does anyone believe that Hillary will really fight against their own, elite class on behalf of the Great Unwashed?
I don’t. I think she’s just telling us lies, telling us lies, telling us sweet, sweet lies.
• In Hillary’s presidential campaign announcement video, she also said:
“Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion.”
Izzat so? Everyday Americans need someone to do their fighting for them, and even tell them what to think?
I don’t think so. I don’t believe we need a “champion” President. In fact a “champion” President strikes me as dangerous.
Inevitably, a “champion” must necessarily be an activist, an opportunist, and, in politics, a lawbreaker. For the past six years, Obama has been such a “champion”. No, he hasn’t been my “champion” and probably not yours. But I guarantee that he sees himself as a “champion” and most of his supporters do, too.
I don’t think we need another activist President, who, like Obama, is willing to break or bend whatever laws get in the “champion’s” way to accomplish whatever he, the collectivists and New World Order think is good for the world (though not for America).
In the end, what’s the difference between a “champion” in the White House and a “dictator”?
Is one man’s “champion” is another man’s dictator?
I think we need a Chief Executive who is more interested in executing and fairly enforcing the laws rather than seeking devices, rationales and executive orders to bypass those laws.
I don’t think Americans need a champion/dictator who would not only fight for them—but also reduce them to dependents who can’t fight for themselves. Instead, everyday Americans need to relearn how do their own fighting—but on a level playing field that isn’t tilted, manipulated and reduced to a impassable morass by government regulations.
• I doubt that anyone who is truly a member of “those at the top” will truly fight against their own class advantages.
Can we really trust a politician who claims to be working against the best interests of whatever class he or she identifies with?
It’s at least improbable that anyone who is truly one of “those at the top” can be a legitimate and trustworthy “champion” for those in the middle or lower classes.
I’m convinced that one man’s “champion” is another man’s “dictator”.
Hillary is dangerous. She loves power. Or maybe she just loves herself. But, she doesn’t love America.
She claims she wants to fight for us. I believe she only wants to rule us.
She claims to want to be our “champion”. I think she really wants to be our “Big
We don’t need another “champion” in the White House. We’ll do just fine with a Chief Executive.
Support Hillary at your peril.
