American Conservatives on Hillary Clinton (circa October 2007)
Con #1: I believe life under Mrs. Clinton will be very bad. Universal health care is one of her craziest ideas that comes to mind. She has no understanding of the Middle East. No understanding of economics.
Con #2: The real danger of Hillary’s election will be the undermining of the Republic. One or more ACLU lawyers like Ginsberg will be put on the court. Someone totally scary will run the justice department. And there will be nothing to stop the democrats in control of all branches of government from pushing the most far left agenda since FDR’s New Deal. If you think Healthcare is the goal, you’re not thinking big enough. This power grab will be the biggest in our lifetimes. Expect your taxes to go way up, expect your civil rights such as how you raise your children to be eroded. Expect us to give away more military secrets to hostile nations, etc, etc. You can expect something similar from the other democrats as well. Of all of these, I think Obama is probably the least of all evils, not because he has a single policy I like, but because I hold out hope that he does have a conscience.
Con #1: I remember when Mrs. Clinton talked about eliminating the Electoral College.Talk about a fascist. That could be our next president.
Con #3: The greatest concern I would have with a Clinton presidency would be Supreme Court nominations.
Con #4: Such as Lani somebody or other (I forget), a Clinton favorite who proposed proportional voting based on minority status?
Con #3: Lani Guinier, Gads, yes. Frightening. Although, Scalia would eat her for breakfast. That would be entertaining.
Con #5: There is good evidence that when the Clintons first took office, Mrs Clinton wanted to make a Communist Party fellow-traveller Secretary of Education. Of course, the Supreme Court nominations would be the worst aspect of a Clinton presidency, for sure.
Raffine: I’ve heard Hillary plans to abolish Christmas.
Con #6: Raffine, rather than pass on (or create) rumor and speculation, why don’t you reference news articles or reliable web sites that mention that tidbit. Frankly, I think it’s ridiculous.
