FISH OR CUT BAIT
My Problem with Hillary
By BOB CIMINEL
August 08, 2016
I don’t believe Hillary Clinton has recently read the Constitution either. I would take it even further and suggest she can’t remember the Preamble, something I was required to memorize in elementary school. I attended parochial schools from 5th grade through high school, and although prayers and catechism were our first priority the schools did not neglect American civics. So, being soundly grounded in religion and patriotism from an early age, plus serving in the military, you may understand why I might have an aversion to Ms. Clinton.
However, all that aside (after all, it’s only a moral issue) my greatest distrust of Hillary stems from her ability to lie with a straight face, not only to the public, her supporters, Congress, the media, the FBI and, worst of all, the parents of the Benghazi victims. Now I am not naïve enough to believe that politicians don’t lie. It is what makes them politicians: the skill to tell people what they want to hear, make them believe it and all the while internally laughing at them. So, when a politician says he/she will cut my taxes I know that is a lie. When they say they will raise my standard of living, I know that is a lie. And when Hillary says she will make the country better, I know that is a bold faced lie. When Hillary says she is going to raise taxes on the rich, she forgets to mention that all of her family’s wealth comes from a tax-exempt foundation where she and Bill make millions lying to people. My vote is going to the candidate who tells the most truthful lies.
