The Money Pit
1pm - 4pm
Hillary should be preparing her criminal defense, instead she is talking about standing up for "real Americans" by fighting for campaign finance reform and against income inequality while she raises 2 billion dollars from her friends among the one percent. The same people who could afford to pay Bill 500,000 for a speech.
The more our country's assets are controlled by the government, the more money is spent trying to gain access to it, and the more of it ends up in the pockets of the crony rich. The problems she claims to want to fix were caused by the policies she has spent her entire political life promoting.
The only way to reduce the amount of money in politics or to make free enterprise more assessable to more people, is to reduce the government's share of the economy. Every dollar that is left in the possession of whoever earned it, is available for a small business or an enterprising individual to earn.
Hillary taking money from foreign governments with one hand while giving those governments favorable treatment by the State Department, should not only disqualify her from the office of President, it should get her arrested, except that there is nothing very unusual about it.
Obama did the same thing when he rewarded his donors with billions in green energy grants, and if anyone will look close enough they will find that the Bush family has profited handsomely by dealing with people who gained advantage from favorable treatment by our government. And how do you think several hundred members of Congress have become multi-millionaires while "serving" in Congress.
Equal access to economic success for the average American was set back during G.W. Bush's and Obama's 8 years in the White House by exactly the amount that they allowed the size of the federal budget to increase, because that portion of the economy was taken out of the free market and allocated by political influence.
Our system is failing for the same reason every socialist "utopia" in history has failed, because they override individual economic decisions with a higher authority. The system defends itself by insisting that any reduction in central authority, meaning cuts to their budget, must impact the poorest, most underprivileged and needy citizens before it touches one bureaucrat.
The fact that Hillary is running for President instead of from the Justice Department shows how common and accepted corruption in our system is. In most cases, having served more than one term in the Senate should disqualify a candidate for President. We don't need someone who is part of the system, we need someone who is willing to slash the budget, close departments, fire bureaucrats and arrest Hillary.
