The Nomination of Hillary: A Welcome Prospect for Scary Reasons

Hillary Clinton has her hands on $36 million in campaign funds after the first quarter of this year. That comes from $26 million raised since January 20th, $10 million transferred from her senate re-election campaign, and sure, maybe some more cattle futures windfall.

Hillary won’t accept Federal matching funds so she’ll be able to spend as much as she wants over the entire course of the campaign.

It’s all too clear at this point that the Democrat in the best position to win the nomination is the woman with the personality that warms you up like a handful of refrigerated ball bearings down your shorts. I’m looking forward to this election cycle more than any in recent memory. Bring it on.

It’s time.

It’s time to match up old school leftist philosophy against — whatever the Republicans put up, which may well be new school wishy-washy fence-sitting rhetoric. If that’s the case, Hillary deserves to win, and we deserve Hillary. I take that back — Republicans who let it happen will deserve Hillary, but unfortunately the rest of us will be along for the ride, and Ted Kennedy’s going to help drive while Bill navigates from the back seat — awash in coed giggles.

It’s time to find out the true direction of the United States. If we’re going to sink into oblivion, we should at least want to be able to prepare our kids and grandkids for what’s coming.

Late next year, we’ll have a choice to make. If Hillary’s the nominee and she’s elected, so be it. At least we’ll be clear that the dependency culture has reached critical mass and the right lacks a voice with which to explain how the primroses on that path are in fact thumbtacks and hot coals. We’ll have a little time to begin planning what to do, not to mention where to go, next.

If Republicans let it happen, it will be their fault, not Hillary’s or those voters who believe that her election will bring about a harmonic convergence of free health care, global peace and golden pantsuits. Bring it on. It’s time to find out if there’s any backbone left in the elephant. And if not, we’ll retire it to the circus where it will belong.

Thomas Sowell best summed up how time is growing short to turn things around:

Will those who are dismantling this society from within or those who seek to destroy us from without be the first to achieve their goal? It is too close to call.

The election of Hillary Clinton as president would at the very least help Dr. Sowell answer that question.
