She Cried, She Laughed, We Hurled
By J.J. Jackson
Sitting in New Hampshire with a gathering of locals around a crowded restaurant table, Hillary Clinton fielded questions including one from an inquisitive lady asking, â€œHow do you do it?â€ Hillary Clinton, carpetbag Senatorette of New York, seized the question for a tear jerking response that was more telling than perhaps she wanted it to be. â€œItâ€™s not easy,â€ she replied, â€œI couldnâ€™t do it if I just didnâ€™t passionately believe it was the right thing to do. I have so many opportunities from this country.â€
After a pause, she brought out her best Bill Clinton lip biting look, coaxed up a quiver in her voice and mused, â€œI just donâ€™t want to see us fall backwards.â€
Ok, stop. Stop right there.
She doesnâ€™t what to see us â€œfall backwardsâ€? Backwards to what? She gave us the answer in that she doesnâ€™t want to fall backwards to where the opportunities that she has, as a woman, are taken from her.
Is this really something however that people seriously think might happen should Hillary not be coordinated the next President of the United States? Is it something Hillary seriously thinks? Are there really candidates running that would make her fears reality?
Is she seriously implying that if she isnâ€™t elected and if you dare pull a lever for a candidate other than her, or at the very least one that does not have that D next to their name, that you are going to be culpable when we go â€œbackwardsâ€ and women are chained barefoot to the stove for their husbands to have their way with and be forced to churn out babies? Of course she is because she knows that there is a segment of Americans who are so delusional and ignorant that such rhetoric will play well with.
You uncaring and heartless bastard! How dare you vote to send us â€œbackwardsâ€! What are you? One of those evil, individual liberty promoting, God respecting, anti-big government telling you what to do conservatives?
How utterly trite considering that she has done nothing but run a campaign rooted in taking away opportunities from Americans. This is after all the woman that has made no secret about her plans to boldly exceed the authority of the Constitution and seize profits from corporations for â€œthe common goodâ€ while conveniently forgetting to mention that in doing so she is taking money out of every 401k, IRA and pension held by hard working Americans and jeopardizing their retirement security and savings. Thus making them even more dependant on government welfare in their old age.
Whatâ€™s next? A decree about what sorts of light bulbs we can and cannot use? Oops. Sorry. Weâ€™ve already reached that point!
Want to talk about going â€œbackwardsâ€? Elect Hillary Clinton and youâ€™ll see America going backwards so fast your head will spin. Like any other good promoter of the nanny state, Hillary Clinton would take America back to arbitrary oppression we once fought a blood war against and still struggle against to this day thanks to people that think like her. Weâ€™ve been there and done that. And just in the course of the existence of the United States so many others have tried similar plans only to watch them fail miserably.
But you have to understand. Seeking to revert our country to a point in time that we fought a war to escape from while adding more recent innovations in the realm of government control pioneered by Karl Marx is not â€œbackwardsâ€ to Clinton and others on the left. Oh no. Up is down. White is black. And besides why, sheâ€™s â€œprogressiveâ€ after all! And donâ€™t you know that â€œprogressiveâ€ means â€œprogressâ€?
What do you mean you are actually listening to what she says instead of what she claims to be? Oh, you must be one of those trouble makers that will have to be dealt with after she rises to power. Donâ€™t worry. She will deal with you later.
I know those of you on the left enamored by her and her ideology of taking things from one American and giving them to others she deems as worthy (hopefully you no doubt) probably agree with her. I know those of you on the left that have convinced yourself that liberty means oppression and oppression is progress applaud every time she speaks. And youâ€™re in good company. Lots of other misguided Americans share your desire to completely wreck America, destroy liberty and remold it into a full blown nanny state.
But all this is is rhetoric from Hillary Clinton. There is no substance. There is no validity.
â€œProgressâ€ means replacing liberty with a full fledged, top down government similar to that of the former Soviet Union where Health Insurance, Universal pre-K, your income in retirement and even wages you can earn are dictated by the government.
Forget the fact that governmentâ€™s track record on previous entitlements mandated from Washington is littered with failure after failure, never actually accomplish their goals and some are on the verge of insolvency. How much have we spent on the War on Poverty only to still have poverty? Poverty of course being defined by having only one big screen television, two cars and more living space than the average European? How many original promises of Social Security such as the incredibly low tax rate initially used and promised to never ever be increased have been broken just to keep up with the promised payments arbitrarily mandated?
And you still trust the government? You call this â€œprogressâ€? Sure the shelves will be empty and there will be no one to provide you the health care, but at least youâ€™ll have it.
Obviously some people just think the problem is that we havenâ€™t had enough government control yet. For these folks apparently the average American having 20% of their paychecks confiscated by the federal government is not enough. And Hillary Clinton wants to be their leader; Queen of the Thieves.
But letâ€™s be honest abut why Hillary really cried shall we? She cried because she was concerned going into New Hampshire that it wouldnâ€™t be her at the switches and levers after the 2008 election.
America first? Pfft. Yeah right. Think Hillary first. Like so many on the left she has a key weakness. She want to be the one to take us to oblivion. She craves the power. And sheâ€™ll even fight with her fellow travelers for the right to be the one spearheading the charge.
Why else should she cry over Barack Obama potentially being the nominee? Is he not enough of a Marxist for her taste? Will he not socialize health insurance properly? Will he not withdraw troops from the war on terror fast enough for her liking? Will he not kowtow to illegal immigrants like she would desire?
Later on after her tears had dried, Hilary answered questions about how her quivering lip seemed a little out of place. She responded with the cackling laugh weâ€™ve come to expect from her. Ah, good to know that Hillary is still the Hillary we know and fear.
She sure has come a long way from the screeching banshee who yells out phrases like â€œI am sick and tired,â€ at a volume that makes the ears of bats bleed. She certainly has come a long way from the candidate of inevitability she was not just a few short weeks ago. Although salvaging New Hampshire helped her hang on. She certainly has come a long way now having added practiced crying to her repertoire of emotions.
But while Hillary cried and then laughed, we, as freedom loving Americans, collectively hurled our lunches sick with the thought that she might actually win. It happened because of the knot in our stomach that formed at the thought that someone with ideas so widely discredited in experimental utopia after experimental utopia could be so close to being elected President of the land of the free.
She cried. She laughed. We puked.
Probably not the reaction Senatorette Hillary was hoping for.
