Hillary Clinton has worked very hard to out-liberal her primary opponent. Bernie Sanders is a socialist senator who has never witnessed a problem that big-government and government dependency cannot fix, so it has been tough for Clinton to maneuver to the left of Sanders.
That hasn’t stopped her from trying, however. In a desperate attempt to boost her radical credentials, the “say anything” candidate has spewed outrageously-leftist rhetoric as a means of attempting to move to the left of Sanders.
This includes declaring a governmental jihad against the fuel sources we use to meet two-thirds of this country’s energy needs.
After pledging to ruin the coal industry and “put them out of business,” Clinton has some fences to mend with coal miners who, quite understandably, don’t like the idea of being unemployed.
To help mend these fences, Clinton has made a typical liberal offer: though she wishes to devastate the communities reliant upon coal mining, she would like to use billions of taxpayer dollars to push these former workers onto the government dole.
At a Democrat townhall in March, Clinton sought to energize the crowd by pledging to “put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” She remarked:
“I’m the only candidate which has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country. Because we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business, right Tim?
And we’re going to make it clear that we don’t want to forget those people. Those people labored in those mines for generations, losing their health, often losing their lives to turn on our lights and power our factories.
Now we’ve got to move away from coal and all the other fossil fuels, but I don’t want to move away from the people who did the best they could to produce the energy that we relied on.”
While campaigning in Kentucky, Clinton proposed pumping $30 billion into the devastated coal mining communities to help them.
You know, the very communities being devastated by big-government regulations and the kind of political vendettas that Clinton has promised to continue waging…
This is classic liberal thinking through-and-through: big government undermines free-market principles and over regulation destroys local economies. Then, after they have thoroughly wrecked the economy, the liberals propose spending more money we don’t have in order to subsidize the economies wrecked by liberal lunacy in the first place.
Still, it’s amazing that even a single moron would vote for Hillary Clinton in all of Kentucky or West Virginia.
Voting Democrat is like watering and fertilizing a tree from which one intends to hang oneself- it’s just slow suicide.
