2007-05-30 — [WDC News Post] — WASH—May 30—DJNS– Presidential wannabe Hillary Clinton would attempt to turn America into a government-dominated social state if she were elected president. It doesn’t take much reading between the lines to understand the socialistic government philosophy of Hillary Clinton, especially after her revealing remarks to students at the Manchester School of Technology on May 29th. Clinton outlined an America where the government would control the economy, decide the pay of corporate CEO’s, and establish a globalized workforce. Her speech, reported by Associated Press, was full of one liners that in the first part of the sentence spoke of the free enterprise America, then in the second part painted a socialist vision of the nation.
Clinton said, “There is no greater force for economic growth than free markets. But markets work best with rules that promote our values, protect our workers and give all people a chance to succeed. Fairness doesn’t just happen. It requires the right government policies.” Clinton also said, “I prefer a ‘we’re all in it together’ society. I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none.” The subtle difference in what Clinton is proposing is that America was built on individual freedom to succeed, not success based on heavy handed government control of Americans and their opportunities.
Clinton told the students that the Bush Administration promoted an “ownership” society. She implied in her remarks that ownership is not something that should be promoted, but rather fairness brought about by government regulation and policies. In Clinton’s government-controlled society, students would be encouraged to attend alternative trade schools without the stigma associated with not having a college degree. She would also eliminate tax incentives for corporations and provide government mandated national health care. She said she would create jobs by pursuing energy independence—while she didn’t explain how, it is implied this would be done through expanding government programs.
Hillary Clinton’s America is a social democracy rather than a Constitutional Republic, a nation based on government intrusion in every aspect of an individual’s life, a country based, in her words, on shared responsibility and prosperity. This is the type of society that failed under the Soviet Union and even Communist China has abandoned these “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need” philosophies of Karl Marx. Americans are a free people, but they won’t be if Hillary Clinton has her way.
