FOUR REASONS HILLARY R CLINTON SHOULD BE THE NEXT US PRESIDENT
THE OBVIOUS HISTORIC REASON
From the first president George Washington elected in 1789 till now,there has not been one female president in America.There has been 43 persons sworn into presidency.And none has been female...Now,I don't know about you but,that is a huge
statement about sex equality.No woman has been seen fit to be president since 1789.And now...there is a glimmer of hope,that someone(HILLARY CLINTON)has done enough to stand shoulder to shoulder with her male counterparts in competition for
the highest office in the US,and yet we are dragging our feet.I am not ...one for positive discrimination,so I am not saying hand it over to any female because we need a female president.Of course not...but,look at the alternatives to Clinton?More of that later...
THE QUALIFICATION REASON
At the moment...there are four serious candidates for the White House job:Donald.J.Trump,Bernie Sanders,Ted cruz and Hillary.If you discount any
independent candidate that might rise up their head,at the latter stages,these are the important ones.Donald is a mega business man with little or no political credentials(In fact he boasts of not being a politician)Bernie Sanders is an independent junior senator for Vermont.And only ...joined the Democratic Party in 2015.He was born in September 8 1941.(So he is 74+)Ted Cruz ...is senator for Texas.He is a lawyer by profession.He is ...a southern baptist by faith.Hillary Clinton was the 67th Secretary of State of the USA.She also served as the New York senator from 2001 to 2009.She (like Cruz)was in the legal profession.She(like Bernie..)is in her late years(born 1947)
Personally,I would discredit most people who are in the legal profession,for the wide world held view of that line of work.So Hillary does not ..get points for that fact.Although,it is helpful to know your legal side of things..as president.Cruz has a minus for been a domestic policy adviser to George Bush.(Worst president of recent times,in my opinion)So looking at the alternatives,one would be mad to dismiss Hillary,and miss this golden opportunity to make an equality statement.
PERSONAL SACRIFICE REASON
For me,this is ...the most convincing reason.Hillary has shown a resilience that most
people would be proud of..From the scandal of Bill Clinton to the defeat to Obama,she has not only shown...an ability to bounce back but,show incredible loyalty to those whom most would forgive her for ditching (or hating)It is a mark of someone who not
only...can show focus on a task or dream but someone who can mend fences.
THE ALTERNATIVE REASON
I have ...touched on this earlier.When I look at the alternatives to Clinton...I cringe.Are the Americans going to elect,a 75 year old man...who did not believe in the Democratic Party until 2015.(When he probably saw an ..opportunity?)Or they going to elect someone from the Republican Party that is in disarray?The Republican Party brought the American system to a halt on numerous occasions during Obamas tenure.They were slow to react to Donald Trumps rise,until it was too late.And now,they are half backing Ted cruz because..he is the only serious republican left.Can you entrust the whole USA (and in ...extension the world)to some incompetent and arrogant politicians.I think not...And,if you think I am being harsh:take a look at their stance on gun control and Obama care.(Of course,there are a few democrats on that side)It would be huge mistake to hand over the presidency to a republican when they also have majority in both houses of government in the US.
At the moment,Hillary is leading Sanders in the. ..delegates race,and Trump is narrowly doing the same against Cruz.A crucial vote in New York,is coming up...If Clinton clinches those delegates,you can only see one winner for the democratic candidacy.Some of her critics ...have pointed out Hillary's flaws.One of which includes,the lack of charisma that her husband and incumbent president Obama displayed.Firstly,she has publicly admitted that flaw,so it is not debatable.Secondly,I will only reply by saying that ...Chancellor Merkel of Germany,was not a sparkle of delight before she became number one in Germany.(Look at her now!)So all..of
the women in US should make it a "must"task to put Hillary in the White House (come November)It would be a travesty...if the world misses an opportunity like this..Imagine
what world we would be living in right now,if black Americans and well meaning citizens did not get off,their back sides and vote Obama into office?
EU REFERNDUM..Discuss/debate starts
One hour ago..the Prime Minister announced there would be a referendum on
the 23rd June this year.This referendum...is to either leave or stay in the EU.There
is going to be a lot of furore for four months,before the vote on 23rd June.It would
be fool-hardy to categorise the arguments in this piece because ...the issues
Involved are very fluid in nature.(And,a lot of changes would take place from now,
till the day of the In/out EU vote.So I would continually add to this piece.The fears and concerns that ..both campaign would be raising,are pretty much the same.THERE IS A LIKELIHOOD THAT THE BRITISH PEOPLE WOULD VOTE TO STAY IN EU..but,at the moment,the opinion polls indicate the vote to leave is ahead.The labour,liberal,Conservative and SNP parties...are officially
Pro European in position.Of course,there are staunch conservative members who are
passionate about leaving EU...And the ground members of all the parties are ..of mixed opinions.I will be adding to this piece,subtitle by subtitle as ..the news changes,and the campaigners express their views.
SNP CONTRADICTORY STANCE.
If you follow the comments of the leading,members of the SNP you would understand that,they want to eventually become independent from the UK.They also want to stay in the EU,and be governed by the rules from Brussels.
My opinion:It looks like the SNP rulers want more power for themselves rather than
a real independence for the Scottish people.It is not real independence,if you are
just swapping "masters".
SHORT FALL OF THE DEAL.
If you ..look at the word,SAFE GUARD used in one of the deal points.The euro zone decision would not discriminate against the British pound(Who are you,kidding?).They would have a 'safeguard mechanism' to raise concerns about any imposition.
My opinion:Now,I maybe politically naive to think that,a safeguard is not ...a veto power.So,if Brussels says,no...to something that would help the British pound;
what would Britain do?Withdraw ...their financial support,
when they are legally bound?Of course not...
FRICTION BETWEEN BRUSSELS VISION AND BRITAIN's EU VISION
German chancellor has not hidden her desire..for more EU integration,from all
member states.The French have got the same sentiments.On the other hand,British government and people do not want to be part of a super political state,with an army of its own.
If you have a marriage (any form)that the partners have different visions for the future,what hope does...the marriage stand of surviving.One vision has to concede to the other.And the problem with the vote ,is that, it is ..final.The "compromises"
the EU have seemingly handed Britain,is a desperate bid to keep Britain in the
EU.Does anyone think,Germany and France really see..Britain as a superior special partner?haha.I think they see ..Britain as an irritant necessary evil.And,they would
make Britain pay...for their double-mindedness with every chance they get...
QUESTIONING THE PRIME MINISTER
The stand ...to leave EU is not a stand questioning the integrity of the prime minister.
There are blind spots or responsibilities that come with the office of the prime
Minister.Think of it as..the role,a father has over his children(offsprings).If there
is an opportunity to grow...the status of the family,which involves risks to the
offspring;Can you imagine or guess,what most parents would do?
I think,most fathers..would think twice about jeopardising the safety of their offspring,
in the near future.[Even if there is an opportunity for growth]If the American forefathers did not ...seek adventure away from British shores and safety,would
we have the might,called USA.And remember the USA's recommendation for
Britain to stay in EU is self serving.
WHAT SOME PLAYERS ARE DOING
Jeremy Cobryn. Says the EU is a union of independent countries with a common goal.And that,we want ...a social justice EU.
Teresa May says she would be ...turning from being an eurosceptic to joining the
campaign to stay in the EU.
The EU does not have control over,their borders,money or members.And yet,some
want to hand power (to decide the lives of millions of British people)over to
undemocratic officials.There is an inevitability...about the recommendations of those
who want to stay in the EU.They seem to be saying,we are doomed if we leave.It is like a dive into the dark....And,there is nothing else we can do.They are defeatist stance.It is typical of British attitude of caution,caution and caution.[very little enterprise of their forefathers]If you look at the Eurovision contest,there is still,a belief in some quarters that Britain can win that contest again.For the last five or six years..our European neighbors have shown what they really think about
their haughty partners.It is not going to change.Their need for Britain..is a dependent one.And I do accept that reality but,it is necessary to improve your might and prosperity so you can truly help others.[Rather than ...enable them detract your progress,to further theirs..]So leaping into ...the dark at an uncertain time,is the stuff
of heroes.And the right thing to do,now.
THE FAILURE OF THE EU PROJECT
The EU's other 27 countries are not...thriving economically.And this is why..most are
migrating to richer countries[Britain,Germany and France].How can Germany be advocating their EU polices and effectiveness,when it is working,only for the German and French.The security of member nations ..are not protected by the EU,because intelligence and military might are still the main factors for safety.(And Britain will still have ..it,if they leave]So the project is not ..working for Britain,that is why NO-ONE
is advocating FULL INTEGRATION.
Safer,stronger and better ...is the motto,used to support staying in the EU.The free
market is ...the most effective tool of argument,for staying in the EU.Margret Thatcher helped form the Common market because it made sense,as an experiment for further economic prosperity.What most referendum commentors do not mention about this fact is that,unless you are part of the vision for further integration (political),it does not make sense to continue with it.Britain have learnt a lot from the common market
experiment[I call it an experiment,because it has not worked for all parties]Britain
have a deficiency from trading in this place.It is time to ..move on[like leaving school]
and redefine the relationship with EU countries from outside of the Union.The common market has served its purpose[when Britain's economy is concerned..]
.A REFORMED EUROPEAN UNION?
The European Parliament ministers..have the understanding that the deal made by
Cameron with Brussels..did not compromise their principles.They had to compromise their interests temporarily,but their fundamentally stance has not changed.So David Cameron saying that EU can be reformed [is already reformed]is illusionary.He says staying..would secure low prices,and access to the free market.And he believes ..he has secured a special relationship deal in a reformed EU.Opponents think,the free market would still be there...because it still benefits the EU.Leadership is a very
relative concept in this context.Cameron wants to be exercising leadership,when he
has had to beg for concessions?I don't understand it.
I have heard..a lot of prominent members of the public,who have stated that there has
not been any fundamental change [long term]to the EU.If EU implement a law that
affects jobs,in the UK,there is very...little the UK law makers can do about.If anyone is a little worried about that fact;trust this statement:IT WOULD GET WORSE.
