SO . . . ONCE AGAIN, Hillary Clinton presses the RESET button, and we all remember how well that worked for the USA with Putin. It seems that this is what Hillary Clinton’s really good at . . . pushing the RESET button on whatever she perceives is in need of her RESET, as if it is the panacea for all that ails the world.
It bothers me more than just somewhat, that politicians rely almost exclusively on POLLSTERS to find out what the people want to hear. NOT WHAT THEY NEED TO HEAR . . . but rather, what they determine will get them the votes.
How screwed-up is that?
It also bothers me how politicians lean on SPIN Doctors to explain their flip-flops, no answers, wrong answers . . . and nuances.
And it sends me over-the-top as to how politicians deliver speeches from carefully crafted scripts, written for them by professional writers . . . WHICH IS WHY I REALLY LIKE CANDIDATES OF CHARACTER LIKE; Carly Fiorina, Ben Carson and Scott Walker amongst a few others.
In essence . . . Hilary Clinton, who has spent her entire adult life surrounded by power and prestige, has nothing to show for it other than personal wealth, false status and ATTITUDE.
She did nothing as First Lady that anyone can point to. She was a big ZERO as a Senator with no legislation that she can boast about. And she totally screwed-up the State Department with America’s global standing in the tank, culminating with the MURDER of four Americans, including the Ambassador to Libya.
It says volumes about the MAINSTREAM MEDIA . . . that they even cover her campaign, since she won’t answer any questions and explain herself to them and the people. But they still support her – WHY?
A normal person would look at the Hillary Clinton Campaign and figure she doesn’t have a chance in hell of winning anything, simply because she’s divorced and separated from the people. And that’s the way I look at it. But, a person much smarter than me . . . Anne – my wife of more than 42-years thinks differently.
Anne thinks, that the people on the LEFT are so entitled, greedy, and ignorant of the political process and the real world, that they will vote for anyone who promises to give them FREE-STUFF, and will supposedly STICK-IT TO THE MAN.
PERSONALLY . . . I still have sufficient confidence (but its dwindling), that enough people have not crossed onto the dark-side to condemn our world to a generation or more of darkness, because we will elect IDIOTS, LIARS and CHEATS in spite of everything.
Unfortunately . . . the proof is in the pudding against my best hopes, when we look at where our world and countries are headed, in a totally different direction from the countries our FOUNDING Fathers had handed down to us. BUT . . . without hope, what else do we have short of revolution?
Jeb Bush would be a GREAT candidate and would probably win the Presidency in a walk, if he ran as a Democrat, since I personally think he leans to the LEFT more than he does to the RIGHT.
Being a GREAT President should not be about how much money a candidate can raise, which he or she can use to bamboozle the people; rather, being a great President should be about competence, honor, integrity, compassion, toughness, patriotism, AND AN UNDERSTANDING THAT HE OR SHE SERVES THE PEOPLE, not the other way around.
With the exception of Governor Scott Walker, who has repeatedly proven his METTLE under fire, I REALLY DON’T WANT TO SEE ANOTHER POLITICIAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE, any more than I want to see a phony politician win the PMO (Prime Minister’s Residence) in Ottawa this coming October.
I’ve written many times how I don’t believe most people should vote, simply because they’re either too stupid, to greedy, or too lazy to sufficiently know the issues to make an informed decision.
I also think that the length of election campaigning must be FAR shorter and far less expensive than it has become, so as NOT TO EXCLUDE everyone who isn’t wealthy or well connected from entering the political fray. And in spite of my personal past beliefs in campaign finance laws, I now believe that there should be a MAXIMUM as to how much an individual should be allowed to spend to get elected.
I also don’t want anyone’s support (lobbyist) to shape policies of our countries and garner special favors from politicians because of the amount of money they PONY-UP for elections. PRIVILEGE IN A DEMOCRACY SHOULD NEVER BE FOR SALE.
Our societies need a great deal of changes in how we govern ourselves HERE & NOW, which will either be made through an honest ballot, or a very unpleasant alternative.
And let me remind everyone . . . America is no STRANGER to revolution. And the American people are not shy when it comes to DEFENDING THEIR FREEDOMS.
Canada should think about this as well, since as our leaders and bureaucrats are also leading Canadians down the garden path in a direction that will explode in all of our faces if not significantly turned around.
The American people are BLESSED to have so many quality CONSERVATIVE people running for the leadership of the Republican Party . . . many, if not most of whom would make a great Commander-In-Chief, that if they choose the wrong leader, it might be the last wrong decision they will make before it all goes really wrong.
TRULY . . . I believe that we are living in what can only be considered one of the most interesting times in our modern history . . . and we alone will be the architects of our future.
I fear that this will be our last best chance before it will all hit the fan.
