She will be the next President of the United States. The Campiagn and Election are just formalities.
For once in a long time, I’m not being sacrastic. On the subject of politics, anyway. Putting partisan politics aside, she literally IS the best person for the job at this time. The “best” the Republican Party has to offer (so far) are all Tea Party-backed right wing extremists: Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Rick Santorum. All three like Clinton are former Senators.
Jeb Bush, who is pulling a Hillary (teasing the media before he throws his hat in the election) literally has his last name working against him: His brother George technically wasn’t elected in 2000, looked the other way while his inner circle fixed the 2004 election in his favor and left the country trillions of dollars in debt with two wars by the time he left office. His father George’s record isn’t much better for that matter. And he is the Republican Party’s best candidate.
While the Republican Party was quick to point out H. Clinton and Bill Clinton’s faults, they pale in comparison to the war crimes and blatant civil rights violations committed by the Republican-controlled Congress and White House over the last 15 years. Unlike 1992, the new generation of voters remembers 2000-2008. They lived it. TRUST ME, they DO NOT want to go back to that.
While my preference for 2016 was an Independent with popular support getting in the White House, as of right now Hillary Clinton is our best shot at avoiding this country’s implosion. Paul, Cruz and Santorum are all anti-establishment and that’s fine with me. What I do have a problem with is their affiliation with the Tea Party and their extremist viewpoints. I actually don’t have a problem with Jeb Bush as a candidate but like I said before, he’s got his last name working against him. He has no chance of actually getting elected and deep down, I’m sure he knows that.
So, now that the Election Cycle has picked up I will begin my usual self-imposed TV Blackout for the next 18 months. I already know who I’m voting for so…yeah.
