Clin­ton will only help her­self

Cecil Whig - - OPINION -

FROM: ARLEY MEAD­OWS PORT DE­POSIT

Af­ter the two po­lit­i­cal con­ven­tions, the news medium would have us be­lieve that the Repub­li­cans have nom­i­nated Si­mon Le­gree and the Democrats have nom­i­nated Mother Theresa.

To be blunt, Hil­lary Clin­ton is a patho­log­i­cal liar who will do and say any­thing to gain power. Once in power, she has shown time and again that she will use her po­si­tion to en­rich her­self and her fam­ily. She cares not a whit about chil­dren, the el­derly, the mil­i­tary, law en­force­ment, mi­nori­ties or any other group un­less she thinks they can help her in some way. She has an im­pres­sive re­sume but no ac- com­plish­ments (un­less you count the abil­ity to stay out of jail while com­mit­ting mul­ti­ple felonies).

With al­most eight years of a Democrat in the White House, the econ­omy has been and still is bounc­ing around barely above re­ces­sion lev­els. For­eign pol­icy (Clin­ton’s sup­posed wheel­house) is a sham­bles, due largely to her four years as Sec­re­tary of State. Ac­cord­ing to re­cent polls 68 per­cent of peo­ple think Clin­ton is dis­hon­est and do not trust her; 82 per­cent of peo­ple think the coun­try is on the wrong track. Yet Clin­ton prom­ises us an­other “Obama term,” more of the same. She must think the Amer­i­can peo­ple are ei­ther very gullible or brain dead. Un­for­tu­nately she may be right.

P.T. Bar­num said that “There’s a fool born ev­ery minute.” Based on the num­ber of peo­ple who ap­pear to be sup­port­ing Clin­ton in this elec­tion it is ob­vi­ous that Bar­num was not a statis­ti­cian.
