Tex Shelters Endorses Hillary Clinton, 2016
Ever since Barack Hussein Obama stole the presidential election in November, the Society for the Creation of Right-wing Talking Points has been urging me to come out with my endorsement for 2016. After looking deep into my heart and examining all the evidence that doesn’t create cognitive dissonance in my mind, I have come to endorse Hillary Rodham Clinton for president.
Before all you patriots raise your arms in protest, read what I have to say on the subject. I am sure you will come to the conclusion I have; Hillary Clinton will make one heck of a President.
First, you have to admire Clinton’s stance on the flag. In 2005, she sponsored a law that would make it illegal to burn a flag or desecrate it in any way. Anybody who is willing to abridge free speech rights to protect a piece of cloth is worthy of my support.
Clinton is even more corporate than socialist Barack Obama. She sat on the board of Walmart from 1986-1992, right before her husband became president. She is also a staunch supporter of lobbying and feels it’s an essential way Americans transmit information, ““I don’t think, based on my 35 years of fighting for what I believe in, I don’t think anybody seriously believes I’m going to be influenced by a lobbyist…”” Yes, money never influences politicians, ever. And with Clinton in power, there will certainly be no attempt to limit the amount of money I can give to candidates.
When President Clinton comes to power, Tex Shelters, Industries’ lobbying efforts will be even more effective. My friends the Koch Brothers, Sheldon Adelson, the Chamber of Commerce, and the NRA couldn’t do better than to support a Clinton presidency. Clinton also praised NAFTA; thus demonstrating she is willing to put labor and the environment in their subservient place to corporate profit. Hillary is a plutocrats plutocrat.
Of all the possible Democratic candidates, Clinton is the one most likely to invade Iran, which is good for all U.S. corporations. "Hillary mocked reasoned discourse by promising to "totally obliterate them," in an apparent reference to the population of Iran." Don't mess with a woman who has to prove she's tough! Tex Shelters, Industries will continue to provide food service for the overseas operations of the military. I want to thank President Clinton ahead of time for the multi-million dollar contract.
Clinton willingly went along with President Bush’s assertions that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Therefore, she was part of the patriotic effort to help corporations make millions on the war for just a few thousand American dead. Remember, the 132,000 plus Iraqi and Afghan lives lost (for Democracy, I might add) don’t count because they chose to be born there.
And she was doggedly unapologetic to rabid liberals in her party when she supported Bush, Cheney, and Rumfeld’s call to war. “In the fall of 2002, Senator Clinton sought to discredit those questioning Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Vice-President Dick Cheney, and others who were making hyperbolic statements about Iraq's supposed military prowess by insisting that Iraq's possession of such weapons "are not in doubt" and was "undisputed."” Why should Clinton apologize about the Iraq war when she was right? Unlike Barack Obama, Clinton will not apologize for America.
Clinton will get support from women’s groups who will ignore her corporate and war record because she has a womb. “…if Clinton runs this time, it will almost certainly be because so many of her loyal female supporters…" will have "a female president within their (our) reach…” And heck, whether Hillary wins or loses, we will have a Republican minded person in the White House.
Finally, if war criminal Henry Kissinger gives Clinton high marks, that’s enough for me.
