A Rare Criticism of Hillbuzz … Yes, Hillary Clinton is a Collectivist.

I’ve had just about enough of is conservatives calling Hillary Clinton a Leftist.

You look really stupid when you do this.

I say, let Hillary’s own words speak for themselves:

“It’s time to put the common good, the national interest, ahead of individuals.”

“It’s time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few, and for the few, and to replace it with shared responsibility for shared prosperity.”

“We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”

“I am a fan of the social policies that you find in Europe.”

“I hope we will come together as a nation and do whatever it takes to keep guns away from people who have no business with them.”

“We have to build a political consensus, and that requires people to give up a little bit of their own turf in order to create this common ground.”

“We need to be as well prepared to defend ourselves against public health dangers, as we should be to defend ourselves against any foreign danger.”

“I had a few ideas about health care, and I’ve learned a few lessons since then, but I haven’t given up the goal.”

“Too many people have made too much money.”

“I certainly think the free-market has failed.”

“(We) can’t just let business as usual go on, and that means something has to be taken away from some people.”

“It’s time to send a clear message to what has become the most profitable sector in the entire economy, that they are being watched.”

“The unfettered free market has been the most radically destructive force in American life in the last generation.”

“The money has to go to the federal government because the federal government will spend that money better than the private sector will spend it.”

“I will fight against the division politics of revenge and retribution.”

“I am particularly horrified by the use of propaganda and the manipulation of the truth and the revision of history.”

“Why do I have to keep proving to people that I am not a liar?”

Those aren’t Obama quotes. They are Hillary quotes.

I’ve already given away the Hillary answers, but take the People’s Cube quiz:

Which Collectivist Said It?

    While Hillary no doubt leans toward collectivist policy and concepts, I don’t think that she is a full-blown collectivist in the vein of Obama and Pelosi.

    One thing I must give praise for is that she has done a very good job as Sec of State. Though I don’t like either Hillary or Obama for presidential choices, given no other alternative, I would choose Hillary over Obama. Through her previous time at the WH, she got a first-hand look at successful presidential leadership after Bill had to drop his personal/party agendae due to the 1994 election and actually be a president for the WHOLE country instead of just president for those who put him into office.

    A lesson that Obama should learn as well without being taught it first hand, but it may be a little too audacious to hope for that change which we can believe in.

    As for the Monica scandal. That was the best BJ of his entire political career. It saved his tail because the ensuing media frenzy over it buried the criminal activity of the White Water scandal, which was the real reason that Bill was impeached.

    Hillary has her own historical past as a socialist with an agenda. She turned down a position with Alinsky only because (at the time) she knew the time was not yet “ripe”. Hilarry will do whatever it takes to further the cause of socialism. Anyone who thinks otherwise is simply decieving themselves (plural).
