I am often asked why I don’t write about Hillary Clinton more. Well, in the article “30 Pieces of Silver“, I did, just to get it out of the way. Now, to answer the question more directly, and it’s a two fold answer. First, I don’t write explicitly about Hillary Clinton more, because there’s nothing I can do about what the Democrats do. If the Democrats were listening to me, we would be in a lot better shape, politically, wouldn’t we? Second, practically every article I write is about how the political ideology that Hillary Clinton openly subscribes to has destroyed America. Read from the beginning, and go through the entire argument, and you’ll find this to be the case.
I’ve written extensively about the terrible damage that the theory of progressive Leftism, the very ideas that are heart and soul of Hillary’s ideology, and you’ll see I’ve spent months dedicated to researching and writing. Honestly, the research goes back years of my life pulling information from everything from housing to labor. My case and point has always been there is ultimately no difference between her and the other lunatic Leftist Democratic candidates for the last 50 years. Carter, Dukakis, Gore, Kerry, Obama, and now Clinton. What’s the difference among all of them?
They all subscribe to the same far Left ideological insanity that has bankrupted entire continents. Even Bernie Sanders isn’t a new phenomena. Bernie Sanders 2016 is only a rehash of Howard Dean 2004. Practically every election cycle, the Democrats have a far left, hair on fire, progressive lunatic run a strong race, partly to appease their radical communist socialist base, and partly to make their eventual nominee actually look moderately sane by comparison. Where was the hair on fire leftist during the 2008 and 2012 elections? He won.
What difference.. at this point, what difference does it make?
Don’t get me wrong, Barrack didn’t win because the Democratic Party wanted him to win, because, let’s be honest, if he weren’t black, he wouldn’t have won. He won Democratic Party insider support because he was a black politician that didn’t think islands could flip over if you put too many troops on it or that there were manned missions to Mars in the 1960’s. He could put one foot in front of the other, without saying something obviously ridiculous, and he had grassroots support that no other candidate could match. He won, because they knew he could not lose.
Now that Obama has been the president, it’s back to business as usual for the Democratic National Committee and their candidate mill. Hillary Clinton is the party choice, because she has the party connections and has toed the party line, embraced the party narratives, and enthusiastically kissed the ring of the Democratic political machine. The DNC insiders know it. The Republican Party knows it. Bernie Sanders and all of his wild-eyed supporters know it. More than all of them, Hillary knows it. The political establishment is on a written schedule of slow and steady progressivism, and nothing will change that.
What does this mean for the 2016 general election season? It means that Hillary Clinton has millions of dollars of support already lined up. It means that Donald Trump has millions of dollars sitting on the sidelines. In June, Donald raised $26 million, compared to over $100 million raised by Mitt Romney in 2012. In the same time period this year, Hillary Clinton has raised more than $68 million, around three times as much as the carnival barker GOP candidate. The entire Democratic machine will run for Hillary, all in, because collectivists are ultimately about the goals, not their egos.
And how did she do as secretary of state? Probably above and beyond everybody else and everything else.
This is the year of Hillary Clinton, as far as the Democratic political machine is concerned. The only question remaining for ideological conservatives to ask ourselves is what do we do about this? Even though Hillary Clinton is the face of the Democratic Party, she’s still a deeply flawed candidate. All the Republican Party had to do to beat her was pick a candidate that was at all respectable, but open primary states and New England states ensured that Donald Trump would be the candidate. And Donald Trump insures a Democratic victory.
Notice that after Donald Trump secured the GOP nomination in May, Hillary Clinton’s share of primary votes jumped almost immediately to double digits, which is evidence of strategic voting by Democratic voters in the Republican Primaries. Knowing that Democratic “super delegates” would give Hillary Clinton the victories she needed to win the primaries, Democratic voters were freed to vote in Republican primaries. They vote in the Republican primaries to ensure that, even if the Democrat candidate loses, the Republican candidate is, at the very worst, a compromise candidate.
This Democratic voter strategy insures that even when the Democrats lose, the Democrat Party still wins, and even if the Republican Party wins, it still loses. The Democratic Party knows what they stand for, and they work tirelessly, even when they lose to get what they want. The Republican Party has no similar driving ideology. They play a lot of lip service to the political ideology of conservatism, but only the Democrats have a coherent and binding east to west political vision. The Republican Party has nothing of the sort.
If ideological conservatives want a consistent voice in American politics, we are going to have to punch our own tickets to the dance. It’s time for a Conservative Party.
