She was for the war, but now she’s against it. She’s against adding more troops. No wait, she’s for adding more troops:
“I am not in favor of doing that unless it’s part of a larger plan,”
Notice the use of the word “unless”. That gives her flip flop room to back either position when she gets called on it. If, and we mean “IF” any members of the press will stop their love affair with her long enough to ask her some tough questions. Good God, did she learn how to parse the English language from her husband or what?
She has absolutely nothing concrete to offer on solving the sectarian crisis in Iraq. But in a statement that completely floored us here, Hillary Clinton tipped her hand, and revealed her true Socialist nature. She suggested that Iraq share its oil wealth with its people.
In an commentary published Monday in the Wall Street Journal, Clinton and Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev., urged the Bush administration to press the Iraqi government to apportion that country’s oil revenues so that “every individual Iraqi would share in the country’s oil wealth.”
Clinton has pushed for an “Iraq Oil Trust” modeled on the Alaskan Permanent Fund to give residents a share of the revenues. “A significant percentage of oil revenues would be divided equally among ordinary Iraqis, giving every citizen a stake in the nation’s recovery and political reconciliation and instilling a sense of hope for the promise of democratic values,” the senators wrote.
And what is wrong with Sen. Ensign? Has he gone nuts? Those are questions for his constituents to ask, but we digress.
Hillary has suggested that the way to get people to stop sectarian violence is to pay them off with profits from the private sector. We all know how this is working out for the citizens of Alaska. The Alaskan Permanent Fund is a bureaucratic nightmare that has people fighting the state over actual residuals versus dividends, and so on. It is a classic example of taking money out of the private sector to bloat the government. Now you may call it expanding the welfare state, but we call it Socialism primer. And that statement by her is a BIG clue as to the way she would govern if she were ever elected President. Beware private industry. Hillary Clinton wants your money for her Socialist vision!
