I made a prior post that I would vote for Hillary Clinton if she ran for President of the United States. I've changed my mind. tomcatshanger brought something to my attention, and because of his comment, I decided to do a little research, on the Clinton's and the Democrats.
I found that the Clinton's are AGAINST people having guns (AGAINST the 2nd Amendment) and have aggressively fought and tried to outlaw the use of guns by citizens. Their stance on this gun issue is that the right to bear arms was not intended for the people but rather militias, which do not exist at this time. Militias are groups of citizens organized by the government to defend the country against attack.
I also found out that during the Clinton Administration (before 9-11), his administration made it mandatory for telecommunication (phone) companies to install hooks into their systems at their own expense so that government officials can 'easily' tap into anyone's conversations and be monitored immediately.
I am discovering that the democrats are very much against freedom, probably even more so that Bush (I hate to say). I find now that Gore promised to provide taxpayer funding to hire 50,000 new police officers, and was totally against the ownership of guns by those not employed by the government, and was for raising taxes to support these programs. On the other hand, Bush was for shrinking government and really has reduced the amount of money required for government spending drastically, yet somehow because of this terrorist thing, managed to reduce freedom by saying that it is OK for government to spy on whoever it wants, but at least he has not been anti-gun nor has he raised taxes.
Thanks to tomcatshanger, I now find that I was wrong to support Hillary. I believe I did so because there has not been a female president ever. I came to the conclusion that by supporting her totally contradicts my belief in freedom.
You know me, if Bill or whoever supported freedom, I would like them. I honestly think that they like tyrannical governments that 'protect' the masses. One must remember this quote by Thomas Jefferson, "A society that will trade a little liberty for a little order will lose both, and deserve neither", and this one by Franklin D. Roosevelt,
"There is nothing to fear but fear itself."
I honestly believe the terrorists are winning, because they have turned us Americans into PATHETIC trembling soggy wet noodles!
I have only one vote, and I must spend it wisely. The more I think about it, the more confused I become. At this point, I have no earthly idea whether
I'll become a DEMOCRAT OR A REPUBLICAN!!
All politicians make false promises that they know they will break.
I feel that a promise is sacred commitment to the people of the United States, which must be fulfilled.
Too many in high positions have totally forgotten that The United States Constitution is LAW, and must be followed.
I fear too many Americans haven't studied it, much less read it.
Am I asking for too much, to want a President I can TRUST, a man of integrity, a man who will insure our freedom?
Am I asking for too much?
I just don't want any of this "Read my lips" bull shit anymore!
I'm tired of all these so called men of great intelligence,
making a mockery of the The United States Constitution!
the unfinished work that they have thus far so nobly carried
on. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great
task remaining before us; that from these honered dead we
take increased devotion to that cause for which they here
gave the last full measure of devotion; that we here highly
resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that
the nation shall, under God, have a new birth of freedom,
and that government of the the people, by the people, for
the people, shall not perish from the earth.
