Hillary Rodham Clinton has made me almost unspeakably furious with her comments today on the talking-head shows. How dare she set herself apart from so-called elites when she is inarguably an elite herself? How dare she continue to espouse actions like the gas tax moratorium despite what higher and higher budget deficits do to our economy? Where will the United States get financing for our deficits when the dollar collapses even further? To say nothing of how will our roads get fixed and how will we ever learn to live on less petroleum?
I’m no elite, but I’m educated, and I’ll be damned if I continue taking the bashing that is being laid out against people who have bothered to learn something about how the world works.
I’m so angry because the choice in November may well come down to someone I hate versus someone I can’t trust. What am I supposed to do then? What are we all supposed to do? Hell, what are we supposed to do in August when we finally settle on one Democratic candidate and we’re supposed to all be comrades in arms again? There might not be enough Valium in the world to make that happen.
The political discourse during this interminable presidential campaign has caused America yet more damage on top of the ruinous regime of George W. Bush. I don’t want to be ashamed of this country, but our leaders are leaving me no reasonable alternative.
