Hillary Clinton is more conservative than Barak Obama

    But, based on her STATED ("clearly expressed or identified; specified policies,") beliefs will she lead us into socialism any slower?
    Will she bring about higher taxes any slower? War any slower?
    … and how about her UNSTATED (not stated or declared) beliefs, the beliefs revealed by her  ACTIONS in the past.

    Wondering

    I guess we will be filling this in after she takes office.
    It will be an "I told you so thread."
    ... so feel free to save it for later.

    *Correction: Barack

    Let's forget about the Republican nominee: Trump
    Let's forget about the Democrat nominee: Clinton

    Let's look at the Republican platform pillars.
    Let's look at the Democrat platform pillars.

    Sanctity of human life
    Same sex marriage
    Immigration
    Climate change
    Healthcare
    Wall Street
    Iran
    Israel and Jerusalem
    Money in politics
    Voting rights
    Religious freedom
    Federal judges
    National defense
    Terrorism
    Internet safety and decency
    Addressing poverty
    Law and order

    Not forgetting:
    War for defense only.
    Individual Independence through liberty within appropriate boundaries of law and justice.
    Taxes that are just right (not too high.)

      Those are great pillar points for everyone to consider before Nov 8th. 

      I have never seen some of the pillars in one platform leaning so far toward godly values, and the other platform leaning so far toward un-godly values on those same pillars in my life-time.

        I'm sorry. Other than your stand on abortion and your belief that is a godly value, what over 'ungodly' values are you placing on Hillary? Which 'godly' values on Trump?

          godly / ungodly,
          good / evil
          life / death.
          Hillary will promote death through her progressive policies leading to bad habits of dependency on the government. The next step after that is the government's becoming more and more controlling over people's lives.

          Trump will promote life by lifting the restrictions toward a percolating economy.
          The WILL of the people must be ever active and never ever shut down. Everyone wants to guide their own wills. No one wants the government to dictate to them how to live their lives … Our freedom must be guarded. It is very easily traded away for security / equality through handouts to redistribute wealth. 
          Those who do not value their freedom, step out. Those who do not know what gives us our freedom, pick up some good books. (By Montesquieu, David Hume, etc.)


          Socialism, which de-emphasizes self-interest,
          makes people go to  Z  Z  Z Z z z z z z ...
