Clinton supports socialist agenda

Posted by Stephen on February 11, 2008

Hillary Clinton spends her time considering policies that will force people to buy health insurance or find themselves fined or their incomes garnished by the Federal Government.

She supports the policies of Hugo Chavez especially in regards to governmental control over the oil industry.

Like Chavez, Clinton believes the Federal Government should centralize itself forcefully and control pricing and purchasing much like Chavez has done.

“The other day the oil companies recorded the highest profits in the history of the world. I want to take those profits. And I want to put them into a strategic energy fund that will begin to fund alternative smart energy, alternatives and technologies that will begin to actually move us toward the direction of independence,” Clinton told the DNC at their winter meeting.

It is not a surprising statement when one considers Clinton’s belief that people should be able to live off the labor of others. Clinton also believes that governmental control of the economy is what is needed.

Clinton also said that if she became president, the federal government would take a more active role in the economy to address what she called the excesses of the market and of the Bush administration. People must assume that “excesses in the market” do not include the $1 million per speech fee that former President Bill Clinton receives.

Clinton’s actions speak for themselves. She supports legal plunder. She believes in a dominant role by the federal government. She’s calling for trillions of dollars in new programs and intends on using the federal government as a policing tool.

As Frederic Bastiat concluded, “The sources of our existence are made uncertain and precarious by these state-created displacements. And furthermore, these acts burden the government with increased responsibilities.”

Have the American people been lulled to sleep by the seduction of socialism? Are the American people so intoxicated with a desire to have things given to them that they are willing to turn our economy, our laws, and our Constitution upside down?

Conservatives are hopeful that the answer will be clear in November.
