What will be the impact of the “ABC” vote in the November 2016 election? I strongly suspect that the “ABC” vote will be millions.
By “ABC” vote, I mean the ANYBODY BUT CLINTON vote. Why? Because, what Hillary Clinton has done speaks more loudly than what she says. Actions do speak louder than words.
But, many young people don’t know about her past. I spoke with one young woman who did not know about Hillary Clinton’s problems with the Whitewater scandal. Hillary Clinton told investigators that she could not find some files and papers that related to the Whitewater investigation. Then, a White House maid found them in Hillary’s bedroom closet and bragged about helping the first lady find the documents that the first lady claimed she could not find. Hillary Clinton had lied to investigators and had hidden the papers in her bedroom closet. The young woman with whom I spoke was shocked. She didn’t know that about Hillary Clinton.
One of the reasons that I don’t trust Hillary Clinton is that while she was Secretary of State, foreign governments and foreign corporations gave tens of millions of dollars to the foundation run by Hillary and her husband Bill Clinton. What could possibly motivate foreign governments and foreign corporations to give millions and millions of dollars to the Clinton run foundation? Like many other Americans, I believe that Hillary and Bill were operating a scheme to profit from selling influence over American foreign policy. To do that with little chance of being caught and prosecuted, Hillary needed a private server in her home for her emails. She could not chance a damaging email being found in any computer other than her own and the computer of the foreign government or foreign corporation with which she was making a deal.
The most frightening thing about Hillary Clinton is her involvement as Secretary of State during the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi. On one occasion when she was questioned about it, she erupted with the response, “What difference does it make?”
I don’t want anyone to be our Commander in Chief who has the attitude of what difference does it make if brave Americans die.
Even worse than that, Hillary Clinton participated in a deliberate lie against an innocent person who made a video to warn Americans about the dangers of Islamic extremists. The Obama administration and Hillary Clinton knew that the attack was planned and led by terrorists on the anniversary of September 11. But, Obama and Clinton publicly reported that the attack was a spontaneous reaction to a video posted on YouTube®. That was a lie and they knew it was a lie when they told it. The producer of the video was arrested and imprisoned.
This reminds me of “The Dreyfus Affair” in France in which a Jewish French Army officer was falsely accused of spying for the Germans. Government officials who knew that he was innocent still prosecuted him and convicted him on falsified evidence and testimony. Alfred Dreyfus spent years in prison for a crime that he did not commit. Eventually, he was exonerated and returned to duty in the Army. It was a clear case of government officials abusing government power to use an innocent man as a scapegoat to cover up their own embarrassing mistakes or misdeeds.
In humans, change is difficult and past behavior is a good indicator of future behavior. The past behavior of Hillary Clinton suggests that she is a greedy, self-centered, power abusing liar who thinks nothing of allowing other people to be hurt or killed to advance her ambitions. I don’t want that kind of President in the White House.
On Election Day, I plan to be one of the millions of “ABC” voters.
