While I think it’s high time the US had a woman, or three, for president, I’m not at all sure that I’d be willing to vote for Hillary based upon her actions as a Congresscritter, or her actions as First Lady.
We The People are trained by schools, and our “news” media to thoughtlessly obey assertions of authority and not ask that one critical Question of politicians before we consider voting for them. I’m here to say out loud that We need to change this, and quickly.
When you’re reading my political meandering please bear in mind that I’m a Jeffersonian Constitutionalist and there are two Questions I always ask of every candidate:
1. How did you act (vote) on issues which affect Citizens, and Our Amended Constitution?
2. Cui Bono? (Who profits from this? Aka: Follow the money if you want the Truth.)
Hillary supported Dianne Feinstein in her bid to force the US Post Office into the appearance of insolvency by mandating that they fully fund all retirement obligations over 50 years in advance. This is something no other corporation in the world is required to do. Worse, when we follow the money, and ask who profits from this, it appears to have been done to provide a bit of F.E.A.R.* so as to give the impression that the Nation would be better off if we just parceled it out to UPS and FEDEX (which were both large contributors to Di. Fi. and the Clintons). Much of this parceling out has already been done, while preventing USPS from offering banking services at reasonable rates to the poor… don’t want to piss of the payday lending sharks or their 200% interest rates.
*False Evidence Appearing Real
She also supported N.A.F.T.A. and C.A.F.T.A., and we know how that worked out for Citizens… SCREWED. No kiss. No butter.
This, combined with her blatant and intentional disregard for, and evasion of, the long standing policy, and the subsequent Law, that all official email communications go through a government server so that they could be archived, tells me quite clearly that she believes that she is above the Law.
I do not consider these to be good traits in a potential president. Nor do I consider the lack of character and disengenuious behavior evidenced by these actions, and her attempts to evade the repercussions, to be character traits of a person I would vote for.
Now, had Ms. Warren run I would have voted for her in a heartbeat. Sadly she declined to run even though a few hundred thousand Citizens asked her to toss her hat in the ring.
Since Mr. Sanders did throw his hat in the ring, and his character and blatant honesty are what I demand of a president, I will be voting for Bernie. Especially if I have to write him in.
In any case, because of her history and her actions, I will be voting against Ms. Clinton in both the Primary and the Election.
