The truth is, I just don’t like you.
According to conventional wisdom, I should vote for Hillary Clinton because she will fight for my rights as a woman. She will insure that my daughters and I have access to free birth control, abortions on demand, and that we’ll soon be able to sue our employers because we don’t earn as much as men.
Thanks, but no thanks, Hillary. Neither I nor my daughters need you in our corner “fighting” for our rights. That would suggest that we’re victims. If it’s all the same to you (which obviously it isn’t) we’d prefer that you not brand us as the hapless, helpless casualties of white male dominance and supremacy.
Because we’re not.
In fact, when I look back on my mother’s life, I’m pretty sure that she would laugh at the notion that someone like Hillary Clinton has her back. No one needed to have my mother’s back—she forged her own destiny during her short time on Earth. In today’s vernacular, she would have told Hillary Clinton to suck it. She didn’t need a Hillary Clinton to tell her in 1951 that she could go to college, she didn’t need a Hillary Clinton to tell her in 1959 that she could have both a family and a career, and she would have been horrified by Hillary Clinton’s decades-old obsession with providing abortions, especially under the guise of “women’s healthcare”.
But those in Hillary’s world want you to believe that without her, we would all be living in a 1950’s television sitcom nightmare where we had to ask a man’s permission to do what we all take for granted today. Hillary Clinton had absolutely nothing to do with the evolution of women’s rights—she was born in 1947.
Hillary Clinton’s attempt to feed all of us this misguided vision of herself as the great Mother of us all, the one who will deliver us from ourselves and make us better, stronger, faster, and richer is hardly born out of her instincts as a mother as she would like all of us to think. She (like her opponent) recites a litany of meaningless platitudes that she thinks will win her the election. But much of everything that Hillary Clinton says is worthless because (unlike her opponent), she has lied so many times about so many things that she has lost credibility. It isn’t hard to uncover her lies—that is, if you’re being honest with yourself and you’re paying attention.
Granted, her opponent in this race is no boy scout himself; however, I’ll take my chances with him rather than risk America’s future on a woman whose campaign is built upon a teetering and not-so-brilliantly assembled house of cards.
If you’re at all on the fence about this come November, ask yourselves this: If not Trump, then the presidency should go to the woman who funded her campaign with “donations” to her foundation (read: money laundering organization) from countries that sponsor terrorism and practice misogyny and basic human rights violations? The same woman whose obsession with keeping Planned Parenthood up and running and killing unborn babies exists under the false pretext of protecting women’s access to healthcare? The same woman who allowed four Americans to die needlessly in Benghazi even after Ambassador Christopher Stevens had repeatedly begged the State Department for more security?
I’ll take the lesser of the two evils, thank you. At least Trump committed his sins as a private citizen.
