I was watching TV recently and a reporter was interviewing students at one of our prestigious universities. Many said they were planning to vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. The question the reporter then asked was “if you are voting for Hillary Clinton, WHY are you voting for her?” All of those who said they were planning to vote for her gave this reason…she’s a woman. WHAT? Is that a reason to vote for someone? This, from the Democrat voters who also scream…sexist, racist, etc.
Well, it seems to me that voting for someone for the President of the United States because she’s a woman is both sexist and stupid. I always thought you voted for a candidate because you liked their views on certain issues, because they have an excellent track record from previous positions they’ve held, and because you like their character and personality. But never because of their sex.
It doesn’t say anything good about the judgment of our future generation. Ok, let’s look at this woman that the Democrats and Liberals are making such a fuss about. It looks like she will be the nominee of the Democrat Party in 2016, considering the love fest of her supporters and the mainstream media. She was Secretary of State in the Obama administration and can show no real accomplishments during that period. She allowed four Americans to die in Benghazi and then lied about a video supposedly causing the attack. She also allowed a Russian company called Uranium One, which is state-owned, to purchase 20% of the mining rights of our uranium. She had her own server instead of using the State Department’s and her own private e-mail, instead of the government’s.
While Secretary of State she also took huge sums of money for her foundation from many foreign countries, where she delivered political favors in return. She describes herself as a champion of women, yet she took money from some of the most repressive societies in the Middle East, like Saudi Arabia, where women are treated like second class citizens, and worse. By the way, what has she done for women? I can find nothing. She is dishonest and considers herself above the law. The State Department, during her tenure, has been described as an utter sewer of corruption, cronyism, and fatal incompetence.
She represents the same policies as we have had for the past seven years with Barack Obama, and we all know how well that’s working out!
Of course it would be great to have a woman President, BUT, it has to be the right woman. Hillary Clinton is not the right woman. You don’t vote for someone because of their sex, color of their eyes or hair, whether they’re fat or skinny, black or white. We need a President who will repair all the damages caused by this administration, and someone who will see that this country gets back to being exceptional.
How about someone whose decisions and actions are based on what’s good for the American people, for a change? Hillary Clinton is a lying diva whose primary interests are attaining power and self-interests. We have had seven years of that and it’s not what we need in our next President. Hillary Clinton should not become the next occupant of the White House for the good of the Republic.
