Madam Secretary, Presidents should not be decided on Race or Sex.
At a campaign appearance on the weekend before the New Hampshire primary Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State was traveling with the Clinton campaign and on one of its stops she made the following statement, “There is a special place in Hell for women who don’t help other women.” Many women especially younger women objected to her bias that women should vote for a woman who was running for president without regard to her qualifications to be president.
If an individual would criticize Mrs. Clinton for her qualifications to be president they are chastised as sexist, and in much the same way that people who support the president call people who criticize him as racist. When we decide to characterize legitimate dissent as either racist or sexist we use these two qualifiers to excuse the behavior of the people involved. When I listened to Mrs. Clinton claim that she “Never sent or received classified information using her private e-mail server when she served as Secretary of State.” I found it hard to believe that the Secretary of State could not tell that e-mails contained classified material or not and apparently it was not her job to classify e-mail content in her possession. Her lack of responsibility concerning national security raised a concern to me about her judgment to be president.
The White House said, that at least 12 out of over 1,200 messages were found on her server that were classified above top secret and they would not be released. Do you remember when Bill Clinton stood in front of the cameras and shook his finger at the American people and said, “ I never had sexual relations with that woman”, or the over 20 times President Obama told the American people that, “They could keep their plan and if they liked their doctor they could keep their doctor, both men lied to the American people. Now Mrs. Clinton has been accused by 62% of the American people as being a liar. Should the people in the 62% who have expressed that Mrs. Clinton is a liar have a special place in Hell because they vote for her?
Those elected leaders who refused their constitutional responsibility to check the president refused to because they would be called a racist also need a special place in Hell. The people gave the Republican Party landslide victories in 2010 and 2014 have refused to do what they said they would do, need a special place in Hell. The failure to confront the President when he has violated his oath of office under the Constitution, is because they would be called racist, they deserve a special place in Hell. Is their lack of will in preforming their sworn duty just another lie, like both the Clinton’s and Obama?
It is no wonder that the American people are angry, they are angry about being lied to by the leadership of both parties and they will not vote for a woman or a person of color to avoid being called a racist or a sexist. The mainstream party leaders better start paying attention to what the electorate wants.
Those so-called leaders will find that the voters will find a special place in Hell for those that don’t listen to what the people want. Americans want leaders who will tell them the truth and do what they say they will do and those that do will have a special place in Heaven.
