USARogue: Hillary Clinton is a shameless liar. She and her husband feel they should be the next Camelot and will go to whatever means necessary to get there. The Clintonista's rank right up there with the Kennedys as far as corruption and lying is concerned. Her only legacy is to be the first woman president, she could care less about the standard of living for the American people. As president it is your responsibility to provide the means for free-market capitalism to flourish, not crony capitalism. We have seen a century of commerce strangling regulations, taxation and government intrusion that has created the sputtering economy we see today. Bill Clintons presidency created the perfect storm that culminated in the recession that destroyed trillions of dollars of wealth. During his tenure the CEO-to-workers compensation skyrocketed from 40:1 in 1992 to more than 400:1 in 2000. The dismissal of Brooksley Born by Greenspan, Summers, Rubin and Levitt left derivatives ripe for abuse, fraud and corruption. His creation of the National Homeowners Strategy propelled more incompetence of the Community Reinvestment Act. His Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 fully exempted credit-default swaps from regulation. The repeal of Glass-Steagall, although not as influential as many claim, did affect the economy. Of course the never-ending blame by the Liberals/Progressives is on “trickle-down” (supply-side) economics even though most of them can’t name the three fundamentals required to work. All they keep parroting is “tax cuts for the rich”, an obvious indictment of our dysfunctional education system. Yes, G.W. Bush added to the problems with his tax cut and spend policy but the seeds for the collapse were planted well before by the Clinton administration. Today we see the continuous march of scandals and controversies in the Clinton camp. There is no benefit in any of her policies other than rainbows and unicorn promises to the unwashed masses. Her goal is her own wealth and power regardless of the effect on our great Republic. She cannot be allowed to become president, our children and grandchildren depend on us making sure that never happens. I love my country, but I fear my government and the media more and more each day.
