Now that Vice President Joe “Stand Up Chuck” Biden has finally let people get some sleep at night by announcing that he will not be running for president after all, it’s pretty clear that the commie fossil who has gotten so much attention for the last several months will be the nominee. That’s sad news for Sen. Bernie Sanders, who no doubt thought that the big crowds he’s been drawing and Bill Maher’s endorsement, might win the day for him. No, it’s clear that the other commie fossil in the running for the Democrat nomination, Hillary Rodham Clinton, will be their standard bearer. (Of course, only after she overcomes the inevitable surge by Lincoln Chafee. Go metric system!)
What’s also clear is that she plans to use a play that has proven very successful for other radical leftists seeking to deceive low-information voters into pulling the lever for them; specifically, she will characterize her election as “historic” because she would be the first woman to be elected president of the United States. It should be obvious that any politician who says “vote for me! I'm a woman!” or “vote for me! I’m black!” should be automatically disqualified, but, sadly, history shows that those are winning arguments when presented to emotionally-driven and/or low IQ members of society. If we’ve learned anything over the last seven years it should be to never underestimate the power of stupid and/or ignorant people in large numbers.
As you know, Dear Clash Daily Reader, I consider you all the vanguard of those who understand that if we want to reverse the unfortunate direction of this country and pull us back from the abyss, it’s not enough for us to vote for constitutional conservatives. We have to educate our fellow citizens. The fact that Barack Obama could be elected while proudly declaring his past as a “community organizer” demonstrates how dumbed down a significant portion of the electorate has become. As Saul Alinsky explained, a “community organizer” is a person devoted to destroying the existing civil society and imposing wealth and income redistribution through iron-fisted government, which are policies completely at odds with the Constitution. Indeed, State Sen. Obama lamented the fact that the Constitution was horribly flawed because it limited the power of the federal government to impose wealth and income redistribution. The guy never hid his hostility for the Constitution. Yet he got elected, and for almost seven years we’ve had a communist in the White House. (We also have a communist mayor in New York City, but that’s an issue for another day.)
I am convinced that many of those who voted for this unqualified Marxist never connected those dots. It’s imperative that we do everything we can not to let that happen again. You know that Hillary Clinton is every bit as radical and represents as big a danger to this country as Barack Obama. Here are a few things to share with your less informed friends who might be considering “making history” by voting for her.
Hillary Wants to Ban Any Criticism of Her
The Left, including Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton and afore-mentioned commie fossil Sen. Bernie Sanders, all agree that the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. FEC (2010) is one of the worst decisions in history. To hear them rant and rave about it, you’d have to conclude that it makes the Dred Scott decision an example of excellence in jurisprudence. Barack Obama even took the occasion of this decision to berate the Supreme Court at the 2010 State of the Union address. He stated, “Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests—including foreign corporations—to spend without limit in our elections.” The Democrat apparatchiks in the Lame Stream Media picked up this talking point, and used it to brainwash people who get their information from the pretend news, leading many of these fools to demonize this decision without having the slightest clue what it was about.
Here’s the short, simple fact: Citizens United is a non-profit organization. Prior to the 2008 election, they wanted to air a documentary that they had produced, Hillary: the Movie, something that ran afoul of the heinous, anti-1st amendment McCain-Feingold law. During the oral argument of this case, the government’s attorney, Deputy Solicitor General Malcolm L. Stewart, argued that under the existing law, the government would have the right to not only ban movies, but ban books, if they contained even one sentence advocating the defeat of a particular candidate. Fortunately, the Supreme Court ruled that it was unconstitutional for the government to ban political speech. Not only is Citizens United a victory for the First Amendment, something that the Left hopes you don’t notice. Hillary told supporters in Iowa, “I will do everything I can do to appoint Supreme Court justices who will protect the right to vote and not the right of billionaires to buy elections.” What she should have said is, “I will appoint political hacks who will make sure it’s illegal to criticize me.”
Hillary Wants to Confiscate Your Guns
It’s not just the First Amendment that Hillary wants to eviscerate. Recently Hillary invoked the example of Australia to support her desire to blow her nose on the 2nd Amendment.
Speaking at Keene State College in New Hampshire, Clinton was asked if the U.S. should try to take away everyone’s handguns, as Australia once did. Clinton responded by praising Australia’s gun buyback in 1996 and 1997, when the government outlawed guns and then used registration lists to identify who owned these newly prohibited weapons. Clinton also praised Canada and the UK, which used similar registration laws to confiscate guns.
But wait. Does Hillary know how that Australia thing worked out? From Dr. Miguel A. Faria, Jr. writing in Surgical Neurology International:
Australians learned the lessons of indiscriminate, draconian gun control laws the hard way. In 1996, a criminally insane man shot to death 35 people at a Tasmanian resort. The government immediately responded by passing stringent gun control laws, banning most firearms, and ordering their confiscation. More than 640,000 guns were seized from ordinary Australian citizens.
As a result, there was a sharp and dramatic increase in violent crime against the disarmed law-abiding citizens, who in small communities and particularly in rural areas were now unable to protect themselves from brigands and robbers. That same year in the state of Victoria, for example, there was a 300% increase in homicides committed with firearms. The following year, robberies increased by almost 60% in South Australia. By 1999, assaults had increased by almost 20% in New South Wales. Two years following the gun ban/confiscation, armed robberies had risen by 73%, unarmed robberies by 28%, kidnappings by 38%, assaults by 17%, and manslaughter by 29%, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
As always with the Left, facts will not matter.
Hillary Wants to Give Lots of Free Stuff to Illegals
Yes, she’s got to pander to one of the Democrat mascot groups, offering not only health care, but anything else you can imagine. We’ve only scratched the surface of reasons that people should run from Hillary like the plague. Spread the word! We may have only one more election left!
