There are 56 days until the election and the big news of the day is that the 68 year old woman running for president isn’t all that healthy. Look, I’ve heard the coughing fits, I’ve seen the video of her collapsing at the 9/11 memorial service, it’s all right there and it’s been evident for months that she’s clearly not well. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s an issue worthy of media attention; particularly the parts about her campaign blatantly lying about it, going on national television to mock anyone who questions her, and then citing her poor health as an excuse for compromising national security. However, what we learn from this is nothing new – Hillary is a liar and will say anything to get elected or off the hook for her corruption. Whether or not Hillary is sick amounts to a media story, not a campaign slogan. What message does that send?
Vote for me because my opponent is sick and doesn’t want you to know. – Trump 2016
That’s fine and dandy, but it’s a losing strategy and you should decide whether or not it’s more important than winning the election, because that’s the gamble. The message is that you shouldn’t vote for Hillary because she’s sick? What if she gets better? What will be the reason to vote against her then? If your argument is not to vote for her because she’s sick and then she seems to get it together, fizzling this all into a non-issue, you’ll have just wasted precious time campaigning on nothing and looking pretty stupid.
Or are you literally counting on her untimely death before then and assuming that means a Trump win? Because make no mistake, Hillary is clearly not quitting and even if she’s diagnosed with leprosy combined with stage 4 cancer, her name will be on the ballot with the full weight of the Democrat party be behind her prepared to enforce their socialist policies with an iron fist. Meanwhile, we’ll all be pouting over losing the election saying ‘but, but, she’s sick’, having made no efforts to explain to America why capitalism, free markets, school choice, lower taxes, and every other form of individual liberty was the better option.
So yes, her health is relevant and especially so since she brought it up. It’s worth discussing. But don’t get caught up in it with so little time before Election Day while neglecting the reasons that every single person running as a Democrat in November should be voted against. It is crucially important to stay on message and explain to America the principles of liberty. Hillary is the worst choice for America because she doesn’t believe in liberty. She believes the government exists to serve her agenda, and her agenda is greed, power, and socialism. She will use the government to plunder the American people for all their worth, line her pockets and those of her friends, undermine our principles, our values, and our Constitution. She’ll do it whether she’s taking medication or not.
I’m not interested in letting that into the White House again.
