READY FOR OBAMA II? Then It’s Time to Start Focusing on Hillary Clinton

Written by William Pauwels on February 24, 2015

Do you wonder . . . where is Hillary? What is she doing? Is she on a diet? Getting a face-lift? Having a medical procedure? It just doesn’t seem right that she would be so out of sight — out of public review and critique.  Why is she hiding?

Having said that, and assuming she is still planning on running for the presidency in 2016, I recently saw a photo of a humorous T-shirt celebrating the end of Barack Obama’s tenure in the White House and it got me thinking: We’d better start focusing on Hillary Clinton.  Obama is history.  He’s failed in many ways but has accomplished his Cultural-Marxist objectives.  If Hillary is elected it will be perpetuated – and probably get worse. 

These people are de facto Marxist/ Socialist/ Progressives.  The election of Hillary would be a permanent disaster for our nation.  Obama is history – a distraction – no future viability.  Hillary is viable and must be defeated or we will have another incompetent in the White House.  The American Way* is at stake.  It’s time to get our priorities straight and not allow ourselves to be distracted by our displeasure with President Obama.

Would the election of Hillary Clinton in 2016 give us two more terms (eight years) of Obama-like, incompetent governance? 

With the exception of her marriage to Bill Clinton, her track record is abysmal with virtually no real accomplishments – and a string of missteps and errors that would disqualify most candidates.  Her education was from Wesleyan University and Yale Law school –- two East Coast bastions of Leftist-Progressivism.  Like Obama, Hillary would be committed to a continuation of Obama’s transformation of the traditional American Way*. 

From 2009 to 2013, Hillary Clinton was the 67th Secretary of State, serving under President Barack Obama.  Clearly, she was ineffective in this most powerful government post.  Even Democrats think the Obama administration under her leadership, and subsequently, has bungled our prospects in the Middle East and in Europe. 

Nonetheless, Hillary Clinton popularly remains the shoe-in Democrat candidate for the Presidency in 2016.  Needless to say, based on her inept track-record as Secretary of State, why would voters assume that she is capable of managing and leading the entire federal government.  Hasn’t the USA suffered enough under the Cultural-Marxist failed leadership of Obama/Reid/Pelosi/Hillary and the Democrat administration over the past six years?

Again, keep in mind that Hillary and many Democrats are of the same ilk as Obama.  Her election will firmly establish the USA as a quasi-Marxist/Fabian-Socialist nation.  We must elect an individual firmly committed to reestablishing the traditional *American Way
Electing a president because it’s time to give a female a chance is a ridiculous argument. 

America needs a proven leader, manager, organizer with the experience and energy required to run the most complex organization in the history of the world. 

We don’t need Obama II or Clinton II.  Their commitments to out-of-date Marxist/Fabian-Socialistic ideology portends poorly for our nation’s future and the prosperity of our children and grandchildren.

The time has come for US voters to give heed to James Lincoln’s sage advice: “If we do not face up to the reward of winning and the penalty of losing, we will upset the whole [Free Enterprise] system on which the progress of the human race is based.”

A Hillary Clinton presidency will make our “facing up” to this reality even more unlikely than it is now.

*The American Way ― The American Prosperity Machine:   Traditional Judeo/ Christian principles and values . . . the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness . . . freedom of speech, action, religion and family governance . . .  an educated and informed society . . . freedom from gender and racial discrimination . . . affordable healthcare . . . the rule of Constitutional Law . . . the peaceful settlement of disputes . . . honest elections and presidential leadership . . . patriotic, truthful, checks-&-balanced, limited government  . . .  a strong military . . . cost-effective national defense . . . secure borders . . . the right of citizens to own and bear arms . . . free, competitive markets and institutions . . . properly-regulated, free-enterprise . . . balanced trade . . . private property rights . . . low cost, domestically supplied energy and natural resources . . . controlled immigration . . . individual responsibility and ingenuity . . . entrepreneurialism . . . a strong work ethic . . . full employment . . . fair pay . . . appropriate safety nets . . . low taxes . . . a strong, reliable currency . . . financial availability, mobility, and responsibility (balanced budget, minimal debt) . . . Competitive, Free-Market, Free-Enterprise, Constitutionally Limited Government  . . . and American Exceptionalism.

In God we must trust . . . but we must always do our part – to secure and promote the truth and a better way – to protect our freedom and interests – and to defend the Judeo-Christian American-Way.
