Hillary Clinton supports laws, regulations and trade agreements which subordinate the broad general good of and the long term interests of the United States to the whims of corporations controlled by monied elites. Hillary Clinton believes in the same radical corporate-managed trade and labor policies supported by the Bush Administration. These radical pro-corporate policies, established in law and government regulation, enable corporations to destroy good paying jobs for Americans undercutting the very idea of a broad middle class society.
Indeed, Hillary Clinton has displayed a pattern of studied indifference to the plight of working Americans while eagerly accepting corporate gifts, favors, and financial reward. From support for UN-FAIR trade agreements to promoting corporate "guest worker" programs used to replace American white-collar workers with imported lower-cost non-Americans, Senator Clinton well represents the corporate interests of the Offshore Outsourcing lobby in the U.S. Senate.
However, effective advocacy and unwavering support for the interests of corporations and slavish devotion to business lobbies are not popularly-accepted qualifications for election to the office of President of the United States. While it is convenient for some to confuse the short-term objective of winning elections with the principles necessary to govern for the broad general welfare of all Americans, self-serving political opportunism must be recognized for what it is.
Therefore, "The Modern Patriot" opposes the candidacy of Hillary Clinton for the office of President of the United States and urges others to closely examine the beliefs and conduct of Senator Clinton. True democrats do not support policies which destroy the livelihoods of American families and lead to deteriorating living standards for all except the wealthy and well-connected.
This is a crosspost from Info_Tech_Guy's blog, The Modern Patriot, (and the Virginia Progressive blog, Raising Kaine) following on the heels of two previous postings re. Hillary Clinton: (1) "Hillary Clinton Supports Destruction of American Jobs, Takes Pay-Offs For Helping Outsourcers" and (2)"Hillary Clinton's Offshoring Ties Face Scrutiny" Daily Kos (and Raising Kaine) bloggers will recall that during the 2006 Virgina Senate races, Info Tech Guy was a sharp critic of offshore outsourcing/free trade advocate Harris Miller and staunch supporter of populist democrat Jim Webb on the same issues of FAIR TRADE and corporate worker replacement programs.
