Hillary in the Whitehouse? I think NOT!

When I was little, I thought I wanted to be President some day. Then I discovered how much I despise politicians. Instead I decided to concentrate on voting for those who believed in what I thought was right.

So when I ran across these quotes, I felt they were relevant to the freedom fighting we've all been up to with regards to motorcyclists and bikers in general; i.e. helmet laws, stiffer penalties for ROWV fatalities. They reminded me why we must all be vigilant and make good choices in who runs our government.

From the pages of
Neal Boortz (and a few extras quotes thrown in for good measure):

"We must stop thinking of the individual and start thinking about what is best for society." [Hillary Clinton, 1993]
We are all individuals. I am not like you, and you are not like me. In all this world, there is only one of me. No one has done what I have done, exactly the way I have done it. I am unique. My thoughts, desires and goals in life are derived solely from my individuality.

If everyone focused on their own individuality, instead of their race, religion or gender, or perceived rights over another, bigotry and hate would decline. Who you are inside has nothing to do with the color of your skin, what God you worship, or whether you can bear children or not.

Our individual choices in life are what make or break our destiny and future.

"We can't be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans ..." [President Bill Clinton, 'USA Today' March 11, 1993: Page 2A]
Ordinary Americans???? This country was founded on Liberty and Justice for all. Including "ordinary Americans". So just who is not an ordinary American here?

What this country's government needs to do is be less controlling and focus on individual rights that apply to all, not some group or another. I'm not part of any group, I am an individual.

I pay the wages of government officials, as does every American, ordinary or not. When you vote, focus on what that person you're voting for, will do for you, the individual, not the "group" you perceive to belong to. You may find that your affiliated party falls short of your individual needs, wants and desires, or that your beliefs will be challenged.

We have all done some good deed or another, only to have the recipient exploit it, abuse it, and general throw it back in your face. Making decisions based on the needs of a "group", rather than your individuality, will leave you out in the cold, I guarantee it.

I challenge you, and every other American, to be the individual that you are. Use the brain you were born with and think with it. Leave your heart to the love of your family and friends. It has no place in government or politics.

"Most people can't think, most of the remainder won't think, the small fraction who do think mostly can't do it very well. The extremely tiny fraction who think regularly, accurately, creatively, and without self-delusion- in the long run, these are the only people who count." [Robert Heinlein]
I challenge you to be one of those who counts. Read, study, absorb and understand the words of each candidate running for office. Does it address your needs as an individual? Most importantly, does it mesh with what this country stands for? Liberty and Justice for all? Which, by the way, includes you. Do they respect the Constitution, or do they seek to amend it every which way but right?

Discard your party "label", your "left or right" affiliation, and become a group of "one". Think with your brain, make decisions based on your individuality, not with your heart, or your race, religion, or creed. Because, ultimately, that's all that really counts.

And, in the end, if I'm deemed an "ordinary American" because of my individuality, so be it. The world consists of individuals over anything else. It is the only group I'll ever truly belong to.

Hopefully this time around, Americans will vote based on logical thinking. I remember seeing a poll on why women in America voted for Bill Clinton. The answer? Because he was so handsome and charismatic. Pa-leeeese! Come on ladies, Ted Bundy was handsome and charismatic! (See any similarities there?)

I completely lost my faith in American intelligence when Bill Clinton was voted in a second time. I can forgive the first, but the second?

Hillary in the Whitehouse? I think not. Some day I'd like to see a woman President, but first a woman worthy of the position needs to come forth. And Hillary ain't it.

My sentiments EXACTLY !

I believe that if Hillary is elected, we are all doomed. Chainsaw and I may move to Australia. A friend of ours says he's going to move to Russia and join the Russian mob.

A joke? Don't believe it for a second....

If Hillary gets elected, I'll move to Australia with you and Chainsaw too, for my faith in the American public to think and choose wisely will be forever compromised.

Chainsaw said...

Looks like we'll have to commandeer one of those no good, P.O.S. cruise - liner tubs, just to haul all the rest of the folks and their scooters that will wanna go OZ too.

Hillary Clinton vs. God

Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and Al Gore were in an airplane that crashed. They're up in heaven, and God's sitting on the great white throne. God addresses Al first.

"Al, what do you believe in?"

Al replies, "Well, I believe that the combustion engine is evil and that we need to save the world from CFCs and that if any more freon is used, the whole earth will become a greenhouse and we'll all die."

God thinks for a second and says "Okay, I can live with that. Come and sit at my left."

God then addresses Bill. "Bill, what do you believe in?"

Bill replies, "Well, I believe in power to the people. I think people should be able to make their own choices about things and that no one should ever be able to tell someone else what to do. I also believe in feeling people's pain."

God thinks for a second and says "Okay, that sounds good. Come and sit at my right."

God then address Hillary. "Hillary, what do you believe in?"

"I believe you're in my chair."
