Hillary's Bucket List: Leading the Campaign for President with Bad Ideas
I was feeling adventurous today and took a trip into the forbidden swamps of Hillary's campaign website. After a screen that asked me to donate (which I politely declined), I wandered over to the section outlining "the issues." What I found was a typical socialist laundry list of the hot button issues du jour. Hillary's entire list is based on the faulty premises of socialist dogmas. Each campaign issue promises to cost us taxpayers ever larger slices of our income, while excluding entire populations of citizens. All are aimed at demonizing Republicans and conservatives.
By the way, I note Donald Trump now has three, count 'em three whole issues up on his website. He's still a one trick pony in my book, focusing on "safe" topics guaranteed to whip pseudo-conservatives into a frenzy. Bernie Sanders is also a one trick pony who focuses on the socialist meme "income inequality." Anyone who wants to vote for Bernie needs to read a good history of the French Revolution before deciding if income inequality is best handled by socialists.
Back to Hillary. Here is what you need to know about her particular brand of socialism:
Issue #1: Campaign Finance Reform
Whenever a Democrat spews the word "reform," understand that this is a code word meaning "let's screw people we don't like." In this case, her ideas about campaign reform will empower only Democrats. All others need not apply. Sorry Republicans and independents (who, by the way, make up about 70% of the population of the US).
Issue #2: Campus Sexual Assault
If there ever was an issue that doesn't need to be number two on a list of national problems, this is it. Hillary means to "stop campus assault," which is code for "we need to emasculate men and empower women to ruin men's lives with mere accusations." The ongoing feminist dogma that preaches that all men are rapists is absurd, dangerous, and demeans both women and men.
Issue #3: Climate Change and Energy
Hillary, apparently, wants to control the weather by taxing the rich. Remember when Congress voted to take away our light bulbs? Now we have bulbs that take many, many more resources to make and are toxic to boot. Remember the billions wasted on Solyndra? The message here is simple. Never trust the government to make the world a better place.
Issue #4: College
Making taxpayers fund college for their own kids, and everybody else's kids too, is the latest socialist craze to hit the Democrat party. When we ask why we should subsidize college tuition, most Dems point to Sweden and say: "They do it!" In response, remember that Swedish universities don't have to deal with students who have been indoctrinated through Common Core.
Issue #5: Criminal Justice Reform
Remember that the word "reform" is a code word. In this case, it means "we have too many blacks in prison and need to balance our prisons by incarcerating more whites." Then, more blacks will be able to vote for Democrats. This is what constitutes justice in Hillary's mind.
Issue #5: Disability Rights
Like all Democrat-sponsored "rights," this one will also create big programs to spend money to ensure that disabled people remain chained to big government programs. Then they'll vote for Democrats who give them money.
Issue #6: Early Childhood Education
With more and more parents giving up their responsibilities to take care of and raise their own offspring, Dems think it's a good idea to get to children early to indoctrinate them into the mysteries of socialism at the earliest possible age. Don't knock it. Indoctrination has worked for totalitarian states throughout history.
Issue #7: Economy
Apparently, to Hillary, the only thing that matters about the economy is to force employers to pay more wages. Damn the national debt! Full speed ahead.
Issue #8: Gun Violence Prevention
Hillary couldn't care less about gun violence. She does, however, have deeply held beliefs about how evil the Second Amendment is. This is the one amendment that Dems love to ignore, in favor of disarming the population of the US. Hillary has plans to confiscate guns from citizens. She has no plans on how to confiscate guns from criminals. Perhaps her criminal justice reform will do that?
Issue #9: Health Care
Now that Obamacare is in full swing and all of our premiums are rising at a rate that will force us to depend on government-sponsored health care, Hillary has decided to stay the course. After all, health care is a basic human right that should absolutely be controlled by government. What could possibly go wrong with that?
Issue #10: K-12 Education
If the past 50 years of education "reform" is any indication, Hillary plans on staying the course on this one as well, until all of our children are as ignorant as she is.
Issue #11: Labor
Because, hey, if you're a Dem, you have to mention labor unions even if you're too rich to really care about them. Labor unions, after all, are great sources of income for the Democrat party.
Issue #12: LGBT Equality
Just like the term "reform," the term "equality" is a code word among Dems that means "let's invent rights out of thin air to attract loud and financially-backed minorities." On the flip side, the code word "discrimination" is a term leveled at political opponents to promote the socialist ideals of class warfare. Neither term has any real meaning anymore. They are mere weapons used to promote socialist dogmas.
Issue #13: National Security
Since Hillary admitted that her greatest enemies are Republicans, her emphasis on national security will probably include some sort of means to eliminate Republicans as a threat. Perhaps she'll find a use for the military to "fix" her Republican problem?
I actually feel sorry for anyone who gets elected president and has to deal with Obama's and Hillary's national security mess.
Issue #14: Rural Communities
Seriously? Does anyone seriously think that Hillary gives a rat's tailbone about rural communities? This is the woman who condescends to her "southern" constituents by employing a fake southern drawl when she talks to all them folk.
Issue #15: Small Business
Hillary's website says: "Hillary Clinton will be a small business president." No sane person can believe that. She'll put all small businesses out of business with tax increases, support of labor unions, health care cost increases, getting rid of industries she doesn't like (for example, the thriving gun industry), and so on, and so on, and so on.
Issue #16: Social Security and Medicare
Issue #17: Substance Use Disorder and Addiction
Hillary's bankrupt morals and ideologies are the reason many people are addicted to drugs.
Issue #18: Voting Rights
Remember that, to Dems, the term "rights" is a code word. This code word means: "Let's screw the Republicans by ensuring that illegal immigrants vote for Democrats."
Issue #19: Wall Street and Corporate America
According to Hillary: "Wall Street must work for Main Street." Hillary's war on Republicans will also include a war on the businesses that actually generate wealth and income. When Wall Street is controlled by government, our slide to the Dark Side will be complete.
Issue #20: Women's Rights and Opportunity
Hillary uses two code words here, "rights" and "opportunity." By this, she really means that women like herself should be able to lie, cheat, and steal just as well as any man, in order to gain power to destroy the institutions that prop up American society.
Issue #21: Workforce and Skills
This issue seems like an afterthought - a feel-good meme. Perhaps Hillary intends that after she destroys Wall Street, all the displaced CEOs can be retooled to work in factories?
Whew! That's quite a list Hillary. I'm sure your minions are too involved in their own little lives to properly pay attention to what you really intend for America. Meanwhile, we continue the slide into the swamps of a weak and socialist state.
