I just got a testy email from someone whose opinion I respect. He voiced a strong objection to my light-hearted “Putin for Prez” posts.
So let’s get one thing straight: I know exactly what Mr. Putin is, and Hillary Clinton is no less brutal, ruthless, amoral, cynical, and exploitative than he is. She lacks the means to do everything he does, but I’d bet my back teeth she wants to acquire those means, and will do all she can to put herself in that position.
Given the current state of the Republican Party, Hillary may very well be our next president. That’s a sobering thought — that the president may be someone who is no better than the former head of the KGB.
Putin is preferable to Hillary in one important respect, however: his brutality and thuggishness are used to advance the interests of his country, and not those of the New World Order. In that sense I’d take him over Hillary any day.
And that is the point of the Putin meme: to undermine Hillary. It’s useful for that purpose. It’s not like any of us would ever want Putin to actually run our country.
It’s unfortunate that I have to explain something so obvious.
The national political leadership of the United States is all but devoid of people who can even perceive the cataclysm that lies ahead of us, much less devise any way to avoid it. The Democrats are now in thrall to trans-national Socialism. The Republicans, with very few exceptions, have hitched their wagon to the same star, preferring to play permanent second fiddle as the “Democrat Lite” party rather than offer any meaningful ideological alternative.
Unless something alters the current political trajectory of our country, the Republicans will cede the next presidential election to the Democrats, just as they did in 2008 and 2012. Then we will have to get used to saying “President Clinton” all over again for another eight years.
And she will make Vladimir Putin look like a “moderate” — not to mention a capitalist — in comparison.
