Huge Stakes in the US Presidential Race

Huge Stakes in the US Presidential Race

by Stephen Lendman

US elections matter, notably with such hugely important domestic and geopolitical issues at stake.

No matter who wins in November, ordinary people worldwide lose - especially if Hillary succeeds Obama next year.

Never before in US history has a more reviled and recklessly dangerous aspirant sought the nation’s highest office - a shocking indictment of a political system too debauched to fix. 

It’s crucial to defeat a candidate whose public record exposes an unprecedented menace - combined with unacceptable incompetence and emotional instability to handle the nation’s domestic and foreign affairs.

Bill and Hillary Clinton represent the worst of America. Author Joan Didion once called them “purveyors of fables of their own making, or worse, fables conceived by political strategists with designs” solely on vote-getting, not public service.

Called the most powerful woman in America, Hillary once failed her bar exam, revealing mediocre competence at best.

As first lady, her only major administrative assignment was heading up healthcare reform. Hillarycare failed dismally, proving her lack of managerial skill and intellectual capability to complete a tough task successfully.

Insider critics call her sociopathic, unstable, narcissistic, and subject to unpredictable rages. 

Her persona in front of cameras is one way, in private another entirely. The real Hillary Clinton is arrogantly mindless about the welfare and concerns of others - she and husband Bill in politics solely for their own self-interest and enrichment.

How could anyone accept such an unqualified, incompetently dangerous candidate in charge of affairs of state as president and so-called leader of the free (sic) world?

Republican political strategist Steve Schmidt said “(t)here has not been a secretary of state who had a more incompetent performance than Hillary Clinton in the modern era.”

She left a “world…in chaos” when returning to private life in February 2013, a much worse state than when beginning her tenure in January 2009.

Using her easily hacked private server for classified government business alone revealed arrogance, poor judgment, incompetence and criminality, compounded by deleting thousands of emails - perhaps with information proving a greater level of lawlessness than already known.

If ordinary people committed her offenses, they’d be in prison serving long terms - double-standard justice absolving her instead.

Most disturbing is her lust for power and indifference to human suffering, along with megalomaniacal rage for endless wars, imperial conquest and global dominance - a public record hostile to peace and stability.

Letting Hillary become president next year is an unacceptable risk. Defeating her in November is essential - ending the Clinton crime family’s political career once and for all.
