I am not happy about the idea of Hillary Clinton becoming president. She’s too conservative for me, too deeply in the pocket of Wall Street, was far too hawkish, and it is simply disturbing that the US, nominally a republic, has the same families running for the presidency over and over again. That tells me we’re actually living in a plutocracy, where money and connections define leadership.
When the Minnesota caucuses roll around next February, I’ll vote for anybody-but-Hillary. I would hope that at least some more progressive alternatives arise before the primaries, but right now she’s the anointed one, and her nomination is depressingly inevitable.
But if she is the nominee, come the general election, I’ll pull the lever for Hillary Clinton. I have no choice, sad to say. The opposition is a gang of clowns.
Ted Cruz is a tea-party nitwit, who has a billionaire backing him. Did I mention how I despair at our descent into plutocracy?
Marco Rubio? Deer-in-the-headlights, I-am-not-a-scientist Rubio? No way. He’s a vacuous twit with no brains at all.
Mike Huckabee is ‘considering’ a run. He must, because he’s got to put God back in government.
During an appearance on the Christian Life Today program, Huckabee told televangelist James Robinson that he was considering a 2016 presidential bid because the country needed to become a “God-centered nation that understands that our laws do not come from man, they come from God.”
“It’s the natural law of God,” the former Arkansas governor said, adding that he was not calling for a theocracy.
“We have a theocracy right now,” Robinson interrupted. “It’s a secular theocracy.”
“That’s it,” Huckabee agreed. “It’s a humanistic, atheistic, even antagonistic toward Christian faith. And that’s what we need to understand. Our basic, fundamental rights are being robbed from us, taken from us piece by piece.”
I don’t really care who the Republicans nominate, because right now they’re driven by racism and classism, and no decent human being is going to want the Republican nomination. When Wayne LaPierre articulates the party position, you know they’re going to be awful.
The next 650 days are the most dangerous days in history for the Second Amendment and for our personal freedom. That’s how long President Obama has left. Between now and the day he leaves office, he has 650 days to do whatever he wants to whomever he wants. He disregards the Constitution. He ignores his oath of office. He snubs Congress. And he dismisses the majority will of the American people.
For nearly seven years now, the president has forced his transformation down America’s throat, and our nation is choking on it. As he prepares to leave office, and leave his final legacy, there’s no telling how far President Obama will go to dismantle our freedoms and reshape America into an America that you and I will not even recognize.
And when he is finished, he intends to go out with a coronation of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
I have to tell you, eight years of one demographically symbolic president is enough.
No blacks or women allowed in the presidential clubhouse anymore!
If LaPierre keeps on talking, I might end up enthusiastically voting for Clinton in the primaries, just to spite him.
