The List of Why HRC SHOULDN'T Be Elected President, Part I

This list, of supposed "reasons" to make Hillary President.

Let's just address a few of those "reasons".

  1. As a former secretary of state, U.S. senator, first lady, and a lifelong advocate for women and families, no one is more qualified to be president than Hillary.  Uh, the bolded terms, however interesting they are, do NOT rise to the level of being a reason to be President.

  1. Hillary knows child care, equal pay, and paid leave are fundamental economic issues—not just “women’s issues.” Well, yeah, they ARE issues.  This says nothing about how she will address them - or pay for any changes.
  2.  Our democracy should work for everyone—not just the wealthy and well-connected.  You do realize, don't you, that HILLARY and her family ARE wealthy and well-connected.  As the most recent FBI announcement proved.
  3. Our next president could make multiple appointments to the Supreme Court.  And, with justices like RB Ginsberg holding on - despite being well past her sell-date - that's yet another reason to have term limits for the Supreme Court.  What we have now is partisan justices spitefully refusing to leave until someone whose politics they agree with is elected.
  4. We need comprehensive background checks on gun purchases.  Well, that's already the law.  Unfortunately, the federal officials responsible for that seem to prefer spending their time going after Republicans, Christians, and other malefactors.
  5. She’ll fight to overturn Citizens United to curb the outsized influence of big money in politics.  Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha- Oh, stop, I may hurt myself laughing.  BTW, for the less informed - also known as Leftist stooges - the thing Leftists hate about Citizen United is that it leveled the playing field, and allowed counter-balancing opinions to be heard.
  6. Because the wealthiest should pay their fair share in taxes.  Except, of course, for Clintons, Gores, Pelosis, Reids, etc.
  7. We need comprehensive immigration reform that includes a path to full and equal citizenship.  No, we don't need comprehensive anything.  If you want to fix something, do it one step at a time.  Otherwise, you're like the guy who has a leaky pipe, and tears out ALL of the pipes, sewers, and electrical in his house.  And digs up the lawn.  And takes a mortgage out for 20 times the home's value - which he only makes interest payments on.  Because, of course, he wants a comprehensive solution to the problem of a leaky pipe.
I'll fisk more later - my delicate tummy can't take too much of this at one sitting.Share
