There is something unsettling about a woman who, in a republic, seeks the office of the presidency while centering her campaign on a promise to operate as a tyrant.
Usually, in our nation’s history, our presidential candidates have promised to augment freedoms and increase transparency. Many of them are liars, but at least they pay the proper lip service to the principles of liberty.
Hillary Clinton, however, has dedicated her campaign to promising to wield her executive power like Thor’s hammer to crush those pesky enlightenment ideals upon which our nation was founded.
Though the Benghazi investigation continues to roll on and Americans hunger for the truth about the attack that left four Americans dead, the left continues to believe that they can simply wish it away and pretend that it is some sort of witch hunt.
On Monday, Clinton told a crowd that if she would have been president, she would have “done everything to shut [the investigative committee] down.”
Now that’s reassuring…
At a televised townhall in New Hampshire, Clinton told a crowd that the Benghazi committee was formed “for the sole purpose of going after me.”
“This committee was set up as they have admitted for the purpose of making a partisan, political issue out of the deaths of four Americans,” Clinton said to about 70 voters. “I would’ve never done that. And if I were president, and there were Republicans or Democrats who were thinking about that, I would have done everything to shut it down.”
Whether one believes that Clinton is to blame for the deaths or the following cover-up, the fact is that it is tremendously unsettling to hear a pledge from a presidential candidate that if given the power of the presidency, she would use it to crush investigations into her misconduct.
Her comments come on the same day that if given the power, she would issue unconstitutional executive orders to curtail Second Amendment rights for hundreds of millions of Americans.
