The tragically answered prayers of Hillary Clinton
By Michael Moriarty
I have previously predicted that Hillary Clinton will become our President for the next four years. Even if someone else wins the popular vote in either the primary or general elections, her victory will make the questionable triumph of President George W. Bush over Al Gore look like a relative landslide. Yet, as I have repeatedly said, Hillary will be President!
To enter the White House with a vague and shaky "mandate", or even, God forbid, like Vice-President Lyndon Johnson, on the heels of an assassination, is to provoke an inevitable nightmare in the Oval Office. However, Hillary Clinton will be President for the next 4 years.
Why, as an independent, am I so willing to resign myself to that?
I am afraid America deserves Hillary Clinton as President.
Sad … yes … tragic, actually.
I have certainly warned America about the price to be paid for its relatively silent resignation to the homicidal nature of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision to legalize abortion. 89 years of legalized slavery, which the Supreme Court had supported, gave us 600,000 dead Americans in the Civil War. Thirty-five years of Roe v. Wade, another twisted logic created by the Supreme Court? What will that cost us? What price will America pay for that inhumanity?
Hillary's bottomless ambition is, of course, a factor. However, without America's eager willingness, for 35 years, to have abortion liberate a woman, and her male partner, from personal responsibility for their sex lives, this pay-later contract will come with an ominously unpredictable interest.
Pay later we will, and the down payment begins with a renewal of the Clinton years. Another Waco, Texas, again caused by profoundly unconstitutional, Progressive Federalism, is inevitable under Hillary's arrogantly blind self-righteousness. That, of course, may provoke another tragedy like the Oklahoma City Federal Building's destruction.
Since, by then, President Hillary will no longer be listening to the cunning advice of her husband – she is the President, so let "Hillary be Hillary" – ugly events, such as those in Waco and Oklahoma City, will repeat themselves.
I know that might be, for many people, too radical a prediction to take seriously, but the most poignant thing about the intellectual supremacism of Progressives like the Clintons is that both the authentic and the false "high IQ's" which they possess end up serving the profound ignorance of their greed for power. Such greed would have leveled even Albert Einstein's intelligence, had, of course, he been as politically avaricious as the Clintons have proven themselves to be in this year's almost obscenely revealing election.
It is understandable that Russia, given that nation's centuries-long dependence on the dictatorships of both Tsarist and Communist leaders, that the now, very neo-Soviet reign of Vladimir Putin and his increasingly dictatorial power is so re-assuring to most Russians.
On the other hand, that the Progressive Establishment thinks it can put a Federalist's slow squeeze of increasingly dictatorial "political correctness", an infectious tyranny around America, is a display of how blindly ignorant their lust for power has ultimately made them.
It's almost as if Bill and Hillary believe they are building a neo-Southern, Intellectual Confederacy out of the United States in the same way Vladimir Putin is reconstructing Russia in the mold of Stalinist ownership. This is now a Progressive intellectual supremacism, not a racial one.
Hmmm … and these Democrats are all so bright! Sen. Barack Obama, for instance! We haven't had as graceful an intellect like his since Franklin Delano Roosevelt and, like FDR, there are very few people in the world he could not eventually charm into some form of submission.
However, with America having faced the fallout from Roosevelt's and Truman's very Progressive responses to the burgeoning tyrannies of both Stalin and Mao Tse Tung, with the Eisenhower Cold War years having transformed themselves into an economic hot war on two fronts with both Communist China and an oil rich neo-Soviet Russia, within this worsening situation I personally don't see how America could endure anything beyond four more years of Hillary's version of the Progressive, FDR, LBJ, William Clinton Democrats. If our foreign policy, one so formed in Roosevelt's New Deal, is, in part, why we are where we are, then where, in God's name, will we end up with the Clintons' globally ambitious Progressive Third Way?
Yes, Bill and Hillary will most certainly get their third term, after which they also will have worn out more than their welcome.
"Answered prayers", as the playwright Oscar Wilde reminded us, can prove far more agonizing a fate than unanswered prayers. The tragedy will not be just the inherent law of justice falling down on a greedy leadership, but the hell into which a slothful and selfish population can be plunged by the "answered prayers" of a bottomlessly greedy, Progressive couple.
