Admittedly, I have not watched (and probably will not watch) the Democratic Party’s Presidential debate, but I have watched some snippets online. What I saw and what I see in the substance of the debate concerns me greatly. Before you choose to attack me for what I’m about to write, just remember these are on MY THOUGHTS, not yours, not a Political Party’s, and certainly not ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, these are some of the truths that I have gleaned from watching this disturbing process.
The first hint of how far away from our “Founding Fathers” vision for this nation is seen in the fact that Bernie Sanders is even allowed on the stage. I am ‘stunned’ that a self-proclaimed SOCIALIST is even being validated by any true American. I cannot find the right words to describe my feeling; ‘stunning’, ‘shocking’, ‘frightening’, and the list goes on but none seem sufficient. Haven’t we learned anything from history? Socialism broke the back of the old Soviet Union and will ultimately break the back of the greatest nation to ever exist on the face of this planet, the USA. To think that a Socialist is receiving this much attention in America, is disheartening at best and heartbreaking at worst.
Then there is the “Hillary” factor. In the aftermath of our current president being elected (who is probably our first Muslim-Socialist president) one of my good African-American friends said to me, “Isn’t it great that we elected an African American President?” My response was and STILL IS this, “It was time for us to elect an African American as President, I just wished it could have been a person who possesses American ideals, morality, and ethics.” Today, I wished I had been wrong about this president, but I wasn’t.
With every news conference, executive order, the approach to social programs (I.E. socialist), his anti-Christian policies, and his inability to work with people who are not of his mindset, he proves that my thinking was and continues to be, accurate.
Today, many want this country to have a ‘female’ president. While I am not philosophically opposed to this, wouldn’t it be great to look at qualifications and not feel the need to have unspoken ‘quotas’ to fill our top position (I.E. race, gender, etc). We need the most qualified LEADER we can find. This includes a history of service, integrity, and accomplishment.
Hillary seems incapable of seeing her past through transparent glasses. Her words are “I’m not here to talk about emails” and my response is, “Well, you better be because if you are to be the “Commander-in-Chief” of this nation, you better be trustworthy with matters of national security.” It is highly disturbing that the ‘mainline media’ is giving her a pass on this issue. Already found are over 400 ‘Classified Emails’ handled carelessly, placed illegally on a private server, & thus made available to hackers and others. The emails are a big thing that needs ‘big-time’ explanation. If we don’t vet this issue now, then if she happens to sit in the Oval Office, will we either be forced into a war because of her lack of discernment and discretion or will we surrender to our enemies (of which the list is growing because of our country’s growing weakness)?
But if we are not going to talk about the emails, how about Benghazi? As Secretary of State, she sat on her hands and (this is hard to believe) until American Ambassador Chris Stephens and 3 other American were killed. As of this date, the truth of this night has been avoided by the main stream media, has been so politicized, has been ignored by her constituents, and the Republican are so afraid to push the investigation, that she will likely never have to answer for it. SO, she probably don’t care to talk about that.
Well then, let’s talk about Whitewater. No? Then (and the most frightening) let’s talk about the almost 50 people who are connected to her and Bill through political means or business deals who are dead from seemingly unexplained or suspicious deaths. Even the Liberal-leaning “Snopes” has to explain away the deaths because they cannot deny that the people are dead. So the explanations of each person’s passing, which is suspicious, if no other reason than, the timing and manner of death. My observation is that being in business with the Clintons is dangerous, either to your natural health or ????????????????
Let’s say that if half of what is known or suspected about Hillary is untrue, that still leaves much to be concerned about when she is running for the TOP OFFICE in the land. The “I’m not here talk about that” line that she learned from her husband SHOULD NOT be allowed to stand because it is not allowed to stand with other candidate.
Here is my reason for writing this article.
Are these candidates really the best leaders that America and Americans have to offer?
Have we become such a people that our choice to lead us comes down to a Socialist and/or a person who has more baggage than a Kardashian on a World Tour?
Please tell me that the Democrats (and even Republicans) have better options for us. If not, our continuation as a nation may be in question.
