The New American Conscience?

Is it true?  Has the hot iron of political  expediency seared the American conscience this deeply?  Conservative America has nominated a buffoon as candidate for the highest office in the land and liberal America has nominated a pathological liar.  William Safire, in a New York Times Op-Ed column describes Hillary Clinton’s aversion to the truth:

“Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady…is a congenital liar.”  “Drip by drip…the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and to ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit.

“She is in the longtime habit of lying: and she has never been called to account for lying herself or in suborning lying in her aides and friends.”

One can only conclude that Hillary’s condition bears out the realization that she has no CONSCIENCE…that still small voice that lets us know the difference between right and wrong, “the inner sense of what is right or wrong.”

EB White, in the classic story Charlotte’s Web, elicits the term conscience in his description of one of the most vile creatures in his story when he says:  “The rat had no morals, no conscience, no scruples, no consideration, no decency…” and without a conscience Hillary is now, in my opinion, same as the rat.

The sad commentary then, is not so much that here is one more politician without a conscience, but that so many of the American electorate endorse her.  Where is America’s conscience?

Al Gore said of politicians:  “It is a politician’s natural instinct to avoid taking any stand that seems controversial unless and until the voters demand it or conscience absolutely requires it.”  (An Inconvenient Truth)

True words, even if coming from the man who hypocritically decried opposers to the global warming hysteria when he, himself lives and travels around the world leaving a carbon footprint bigger than his own ego.

Agreeing with Mr. Gore’s salient point regarding conscience, it then becomes clear, since Hillary Clinton is void of the same, her stand  on any issue is solely a function of how many votes her position on any issue will bring.

EB White, had he known Hillary Clinton, would have had to look no further to find the perfect model for his rat.

America…where is your conscience?

 

 

The Hottest Places in Hell

Never before in the history of National politics have the voters of America been saddled with more inept candidates for the highest office in the land.  Hillary Clinton is a pathological liar and Donald Trump is a braggart and a buffoon.  A significant contingent of the American electorate are threatening to boycott the election on the premise that , the “lesser of two evils” is still evil therefore they will stay away from the polls on election day.

This thinking is flawed on at least two fronts.  First: Allowing the ‘greater’ of two evils to triumph is a stronger victory for evil.  Second:  Not voting because one is not happy with either candidate is, in my opinion, an abdication of not only the responsibility to participate in the electoral process but the right to engage in the discussion.  If you don’t vote, don’t complain.  There is no such thing as innocently standing on the sidelines.

Dante famously said: “The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in times of great moral crisis maintain their neutrality.”

Albert Einstein wisely said:  “The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil but by those who watch them without doing anything.”

Surely the position(s) of one of the candidates on the issues in this most unusual election more closely reflects the values of each American citizen than does the other.  That then is the criteria which should drive our vote.

 

 

Brexit – An Arrow Through the Heart of The New World Order

June 24, 2016 In a stunning vote that sent a shock wave through the world, the middle class in the UK stiffened their backs against the notion of an international central government. Tired of sending euros to bail out failed socialist governments in the EU, United Kingdom producers said no more.  The 52%-48% vote in favor of England’s exit from the European Union, sent a clear message from the working class that they will not be denied the right of self determination by socialist elitists who see themselves as modern day Robin Hoods.  And this is just the beginning.  Watch for France, Italy, Germany and others to follow suit.

A former advisor to Margaret Thatcher, when interviewed on the Lou Hobbs show, stated that Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher were cheering in their graves over this vote.  At the same time, grand narcissist Barack Obama and panderer Hillary Clinton were no doubt crying in their beer.  It was Winston Churchill who said “Socialism in the best form of government except for every other form that has ever been tried,” and it was Barak Obama who, believed his very appearance in the UK would shock and awe the electorate into preserving the EU.

The idea of a “One World Order, of which the EU is a mini-mock-up, is as inane as it is delusory.  It is a socialist concept that it is the governments responsibility to redistribute the wealth of the worlds producers to the lower class.  On a grand scale, redistribution would be expanded from counties, states, and countries to nations.  The American working middle class, for example, would continue to be taxed and their tax money sent to Poland, Greece or any other country to support populations who retire at age 52 and this largely because of inept socialist policies.  Workers in free countries will simply not continue to do this.

Brexit was a vote for free enterprise.  It was a vote for the freedom to determine one’s own future.  It is a vote for restricting government intrusion into our personal lives.  What it was not was a move to deny the underprivileged the necessities of life but a move to improve their chances of having more that any government could give them.

Brexit was a vote for freedom!
