My wife and I were talking politics the other day, and she asked me why on Earth anyone would vote for the Hildebeast. I responded by listing the following (in no particular order):
- Has a “D” for party affiliation
- Is a Female
- Has been in the public eye for 30-years
- Was a First Lady
- Was a Senator
- Was Secretary of State
- States that she is for “the little guy”
- Conveniently ignore the many scandals, past and present
And went on with the following explanations and comments for each bullet point:
Has a “D” for party affiliation: There are people in this country that will never, under any circumstance, vote for a Republican candidate. To some of them, the Republican Party is akin to the spawn of Satan. Others believe that if a Republican is elected, nationally or locally, their benefits will dry up and they would be forced to find work. And yet others believe that the Democrats are the Party of Compassion (more on this later). Regardless, these are the hard-core people that would never vote for a Republican candidate, no matter what Hell the Democrats unleashed upon the population. All we have to do is take a look at cities that have had long-term Democratic rule, watched these cities implode, and Democrat candidates still being elected to know that this is a failing, insane strategy.
Is a Female: Some people will vote for the Hildebeast just because she is a woman. They believe that she would stand up for women’s rights (equal pay, sexual harassment, etc.). Others want to be in on electing the very first woman President. Still others identify with the Hildebeast believing that a “woman’s touch” is needed to right the country. If this is their idea of the ideal woman candidate, I can think of the Queen from Snow White being a better candidate, poisoned apple and all…
Has been in the public eye for 30-years: The Hildebeast has been around for a long time, mostly playing second fiddle to Bill “Slick Willie” Clinton. Now it’s her time to shine, especially after…
Was a First Lady: Starting off as the First Lady of Arkansas, then moving on up to the East Coast as First Lady of the United States, she moved through the halls of power, being the power behind the throne upon which Bill sat. Of course, through it all, she covered for him and ran interference for his many “misdeeds” with female personnel. So now it’s her turn as the hurt wife.
Was a Senator: After leaving the White House (with the china), she immediate landed in New York and became a Senator for that state until becoming the Secretary of State under Obummer as the consolation prize after a failed bid for the Presidency. Just another bullet point on the resume…
Was Secretary of State: For the first four years of the Obummer Presidency, the Hildebeast jetted all over the globe meeting and dealing with world leaders. This at least gives the illusion of competency even though every “deal” that she had a hand in has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people in the Middle East while lining her pockets through “donations” to the Clinton Foundation. But it’s the illusion that matters, and yet another bullet point on the resume.
States that she is for “the little guy”: The Democrats have always portrayed themselves as for “the little guy” and the Hildebeast is no different. She speaks on the campaign trail that she will stick up for women’s rights like equal pay (while paying female Clinton Foundation employees 18% less than their male counter parts), and preventing or protecting against sexual assault (unless they’re in bed with or attacked by Bill, or if self-defense involves a firearm). She supposedly sympathizes with small businesses, citing the example of her father’s drapery business. She has adopted the Bernie platform of free stuff, and admits that she will have to raise taxes to pay for it all (after all, the money has to come from somewhere, and the rich’s “fair share” in taxes (except for herself and her cronies) won’t be enough to cover the bill). She constantly portrays herself as a civil justice warrior, fighting the good fight against police racism and siding with the “oppressed” Black Lives Matter group. This is despite that many of her political platforms will, upon further inspection, will destroy the very people that she purports herself to be protecting.
Conveniently ignore the many scandals, past and present: This is probably the most extreme example of blind ignorance that I have ever seen. The scandals, blood, bodies, and money that the Hildebeast has been able to avoid responsibility for is almost beyond belief. There are thirty some years of public records showing ethical and moral bankruptcy, of destroying lives and careers, of doing anything it would take to advance herself, her agenda, and increase her bank account. And yet these records are being ignored by voters who want to elect a corrupt, vengeful, hateful woman to the highest office in this land.
Postscript: As I’m writing this post, news reports of Trump’s 11-year old lewd conversation are being widely condemned by the media and various leaders in both political parties. Trump has apologized, and his wife has stated publically that she has forgiven him for his statements.
In closing, I would like to add this excerpt from Robert Charles from his article at Townhall.com:
…If we are imperfect humans, we still have a right to expect more from our candidates for high office. We must – in the end – vote our conscience, vote to preserve the US Supreme Court and our security, avoid ingrained public corruption and degradation both, to the greatest extent possible.
I cannot vote for what seems to me, on overwhelming public evidence, a massive criminal enterprise, one that boggles the mind with each new email release. To me, one candidate’s brazen criminal intent, bold disrespect for rule of law, arrogance and indifference to our Nation’s core principles disqualifies her from future public service. But I cannot easily vote for what seems a candidate who makes a mockery of human respect, civility, decency and seriousness of purpose without degradation and disgust.
I would also invite the readers of this post to read Jack Hellner’s post at American Thinker for the media’s focus on providing the public a squirrel to chase.
No, it isn’t easy to vote for an imperfect person. But that is the choice that we have before us.
God Help Us and the United States.
