Why Not to Vote for Hillary Clinton

(As if you needed a reason?)

Hillary Clinton has a problem. For years she has believed, as did her husband (correctly, I might add) that the only way to win the presidency is to be a moderate. Hillary has taken this advice quite literally, unwilling to make a specific unified stance on anything from the war in Iraq to abortion. This week she suddenly and fundamentally changed course within this tactic and gave a speech at MIT. Within this speech Hillary calmly takes credit for carrying the torch of progressive economic policy, and single-handedly blames all apparent (or imagined) economic inequality solely on George W. Bush (that's called BDS, if you were wondering).

So why should we not vote for Hillary? Because she's a socialist.

Not only does Hillary believe that it takes a village to raise a child, she believes it takes the government to run the economy. Yes, that is called socialism. And in every country in the history of mankind it has ever been implemented it has been a total and catastrophic failure.

Hillary outlines 9 points of socialist economic policy she plans to implement as president:

1. Redistribute wealth from big corporations and force them to invest in government-controlled operations

2. Eliminate the ability to global and American companies to do business overseas.

3. Allow the government to be in control of wages in the private sector, especially in big companies among CEO's.

4. Raise taxes on big corporations.

5. Make college more affordable (The hilarious and constant rattle of the liberal left. Have they priced any state schools lately? Not everyone goes to Yale or Harvard after all...)

6. Encourage schooling for low-skill low-paying jobs.

7. Encourage unions, make unemployment more "affordable;" i.e. increase government support of the unemployed.

8. Universal health care. Also known as "HillaryCare." It's back, and it's bound the make the best healthcare system in the world resemble the dismal systems in western Europe, Canada, and Cuba.

9. Allow the government the rights and monetary support to research "new job opportunities for the middle class."

Hillary has finally made her stand, and it is - as far as economic policy is concerned - on the extreme left.

It's time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few and for the few, time to reject the idea of an "on your own" society and to replace it with shared responsibility for shared prosperity. I prefer a "we're all in it together" society.

I'm sure she does. I would rather prefer a "government stay the hell out of my wallet" society, but we won't have that with Bill and Hillary back in the White House.


Need another reason?
Not really, but seriously?
