Those infamous words uttered by Hillary Clinton in January, 2013 will forever live to illustrate the failures of the last five years-plus of rule under Democratic “leadership”. The murder of an American Ambassador and three members of his staff in the State Department compound in Benghazi just a few months before a Presidential election panicked the Obama administration to the point of chaos and their blatant lies and feeble attempts to cover up their criminal negligence in preventing and responding to this atrocity remain the focal point of Congressional investigation to this day.
History should never be ignored when it comes to elections and this seems particularly appropriate in view of what lies ahead in 2016 . The Democrats appear ecstatic over the potential of a Hillary Clinton presidency and even matrons of the Republican establishment have been overheard to twitter that “after what she has been through she deserves it”. This is idiocy at its highest level.
Ignore history and suffer the consequences.
Consider the following. retrieved from Ronald Reagan’s acceptance speech of the Republican presidential nomination in 1980:
“Never before in our history have Americans been called upon to face three grave threats to our very existence, any one of which could destroy us. We face a disintegrating economy, a weakened defense, and an energy policy based on the sharing of scarcity.
The major issue of this campaign is the direct political, personal and moral responsibility of Democratic party leadership — in the White House and in Congress — for this unprecedented calamity which has befallen us. They tell us that they have done the most that humanly could be done. They say that the United States has had its day in the sun; that our nation has passed its zenith. They expect you to tell your children that the American people no longer have the will to cope with their problems; that the future will be one of sacrifice and few opportunities.
My fellow citizens, I utterly reject that view. The American people, the most generous on earth, who created the highest standard of living, are not going to accept the notion that we can only make a better world for others by moving backwards ourselves. Those who believe we can have no business leading the nation.
I will not stand by and watch this great country destroy itself under mediocre leadership that drifts from one crisis to the next, eroding our national will and purpose. We have come together here because the American people deserve better from those to whom they entrust our nation’s higher offices, and we stand united in our resolve to do something about it”.
Ronald Reagan was at that time making reference to the Democratic leadership of the Carter years of futility, but the criticisms would be just as relevant (if not more so) when applied to Obama and his crowd of ideologues, liars, thieves, thugs, opportunists and sycophants who are eagerly engineering the reduction of America to third-world status. Or worse, into a eurosocialist oligarchy featuring the worst elements of the progressive agenda whose roots can be traced to Bismark’s dictatorial Germany of the early 1900’s.
For the Democrats, suggesting that Hillary Clinton continue the Democratic regime is a logical conclusion, embracing the philosophy of “At this point what difference does it make?”
Ronald Reagan is not available this time around. The Republicans are in dire need of a true leader and a warrior who is not afraid to stand on conservative principle to direct us away from the imminent abyss that so many lemmings are willingly and thoughtlessly rushing towards.
